I am the MOM and I was here FIRST!
- I am the MOM
- I am a 44 year old mother of three children and grandmother of one. I am divorced from my children's father whom I share joint physical custody of our youngest two children with. I have been married to my fabulous husband for over 9 near-perfect years. I LOVE this man! He is a wonderful generous, affectionate, tolerant and all forgiving husband. He is also a terrific step-dad/male role model to my kids and an even better grand father to our two year old grand daughter. My oldest daughter attends college to obtain her nursing degree. She has been on her own for over three years now (no longer part of a shared custody arrangement like her brother & sister) My middle daughter is in high school and plays on the freshmen volleyball & soccer teams. She's really creative and talented. My son is in middle school and plays hockey and lacrosse. He is a sweet sensitive boy who still says "I love you Mom" frequently. I work part time running an online ebay store. I have terrific and supportive relationships with my family, friends and of course my kids. I am extremely close to my sister, my Mom and my sister-in-laws. They are my best friends.

Good Morning Recipe
Good Morning ...
I thought I'd share a favorite recipe of mine. You can prepare it the night before and just put it in the oven to bake the next morning. It makes a terrific "special" breakfast for the holidays and weekends.
It's a family favorite in our house.
BAKED FRENCH TOAST
1 Loaf of Cinnamon Swirl Bread (or Raisin Bread)
3 Cups Milk
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
Layer the bread in a 9x13 glass pan that has been sprayed generously with Pam. Use the whole loaf. (You'll have 2 full layers of bread. I just put any remaining "odd" pieces across the top too.)
Beat the eggs, milk, brown sugar and vanilla together with a whisk and pour over the bread. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.
The next morning, bake at 350 degrees for about an hour. (Check on it after 45 minutes. The top should be golden brown and slightly crisp while the inside is soft)
Serve with butter and syrup or fruit topping & whipped cream.
