I know there are many more, and I wish I did a better job writing them down and/or remembering them to write down later, but these are some funnies the kids have shared lately...

While riding in the car the other day, Braeden was humming "Rock a Bye Baby" to himself. All of a sudden he said, "Mom, did the baby get hurt?"

I said, "WHAT?"

He replied, "You know, when the bough broke."

Today Liam was upstairs and bothering Olivia and Braeden who were doing a great job cleaning the boys area. I called him to me by saying, "Liam ****, Come On Down!"

He turned to Olivia and said, "Oops, Mom's calling me!"

This is my FAVORITE...

While in Florida Braeden was acting like a "rapper" (no clue where he got that!). My dad said to him, "Hey, maybe you'll be famous one day, you know, like Eminem?"

Braeden looked at him and said, "Which do you mean, the red or the yellow?"

--- A friend of mine has a six year old "girl version" of Braeden and the two of them claim marriage someday. :) They are best buds while they're together. My friend was reading and laughing about what Braeden had said when I posted it on Facebook. Her daughter overheard and with all seriousness said, "Well, which did he pick?"

About Me

I am a single mom to four amazing kids; each of whom just happen to have been adopted. The first three were adopted through foster care, and we just completed an international adoption from Haiti. Our family has grown through adoption and I am all the more blessed to know each of my children. I worship a mighty God, teach Special Ed, love bargains, and am inspired by Pinterest... come along with us for the ride!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
