Addie {standing up on the chair, playing with the blinds}

Me: Addie, you need to sit on your bottom.

Addie: No!

Me {stern eyebrows}: Addie, if you cannot sit on your bottom, you will have to get down.

Addie {smirking}

Addie {still smirking}

Me {voice escalating}: TWO....

Addie: Three!!!

About Me

My photo
What started as a way to communicate with far away friends and family has become a place for this horse trainer/HR manager turned stay at home mom of 3 girls to hold on to a bit of her own identity. It's my take on the ins and outs, the ups and downs, the thoughts and feelings, the mistakes and triumphs of this family as we bumble our way to eternity.
