This is a blog about a young family of five. Learning patience, potty training, dealing with private school kindergarten politics, and at the end of the day trying to find time to have a drink.

Favorite Flea Market Find to Date
Long time, no blog! I had to post a picture to document my favorite flee market day! On my favorite day to shop at the local antique store, I found an amazing fan!! Turns out to be a 1911 Westinghouse Electric Co. desk fan. It's beautiful. It will live in my downstairs bathroom!
Jake Perry was born August 22, 2009. He weighed 8 pounds, 7 ounces. He started kindergarten and soccer this year! He is a typical moody teenager...except for the fact that he is 6 years old!! Drama is his middle name. He will either grow up to be an attorney or an Oscar Award winner. He loves Halloween, monsters, aliens, blood, guts, gore, and above all...SCARY MOVIES! He amazes me every day. We share custody of Jake with his dad, Stephen. That has been one of the hardest challenges we have had to face. More to come on THAT subject I'm sure.
She dances to the beat of her own drum.
Genevieve Janice was born on her grandmother's birthday. September 21, 2007. A blessing, an angel, a savior. We found out we were pregnant only 8 weeks after Ashlea's mother passed away. She weighed 7 pounds, 11 ounces. A beautiful, blue eyed gift. Ashlea's grandmother, Pauline, passed away when Genevieve was 6 days old. She lived to see her 2nd great-grandchild! Genevieve is now 2 and amazes us more everyday.
I love my momma.
Charlie James was born on May 30, 2009. He weighed 9 pounds, 2.7 ounces. We were shizzocked!! So, he is 4 months old now, but wears size 9 month clothes. So far he has blue eyes and blonde hair just like his sibs. He is the happiest baby, only crying when he wants to be held. What a love.

Sunflowers are a favorite of mine; Bold and big faced, full of shine- With tall, coarse stems reaching up high To worship the sun in the deep blue sky. Staunch and so brave, blowing in the wind, Saluting nature's beauty-time and again.
Amidst the heat of the day and bumblebees, Picnicking young families, and mothers' pleas- Good natured semblances of round, smiley faces Make it through another day-unpicked and pleased. Who would guess their hearty sighs go unheard- Mingled with the children's, the wind's and the birds'.
