I am the MOM and I was here FIRST!

My photo
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.

Sweet Sounds Of Summer

For the last couple of days, my next door neighbors K & M have been teaching their oldest son, K Junior to ride a two wheeler.

Back and forth the little guy goes past my house, followed by a parade of siblings chasing after him on foot.

K Juniors Dad will count...


And then off little K Junior goes ... trying to master it.

I can hear encouraging shouts of "Pedal, Pedal... PEDAL" from his Dad.

His Mom can be heard from her watchful post on the porch steps saying "Ohhhhhhhh .... you almost had it" when he falls down.

K Juniors younger siblings make excellent cheerleaders.

Is there any nicer sound?

Oh wait... here comes the ice cream truck!

Ahhhh.... The Sweet Sounds of Summer!
