I am a mom of 6, 5 boys and 1 beautiful girl. We live life to the fullest, as best we can! Some days are good and some are bad but we push through and some how have a smile on our face at the end of the day! We have a little bit of this and a little bit of that in our family including Down Syndrome and Gluten Intolerance.
Dear Grace- Here we are today staring 6 years right in the eye balls. Seems like yesterday we were holding you for the first time. Last night as Sue asked us question after question, like she does every year on the eve of your big day, your Dad and I strolled through those memories. WhatContinue reading
With the first week of vacation over and the second almost halfway through we are savoring the last, and some might say the best, of it.

Best part of blogging is that your life is captured right there on the digital screen. No need to dig through the photo books. It is all there, the good and the bad. IContinue reading
It is hard to believe we are staring the holiday season in the face. I just bought my annual bag of cinnamon pinecones. If that is not a sign of the holidays around the corner I don’t know what is. As a mom of 6 with 13 years of experience under my belt, I see myselfContinue reading
You guys- I should say, good morning. So good morning, you guys. It is a rainy and cold morning here in Chicago and Grace got up early with her brother Sean. They were afraid to go downstairs by themselves so I rolled myself out of bed on this dark, dreary morning because I knew IContinue reading
I can’t even believe that October is over. It was filled with so much we barely came up for air. Parenting and work are like that sometimes aren’t they? There is just ebs and flows that consistently burn months away. Between tutors, practices and escapes to Michigan there is very little time to appreciate theContinue reading
