than a little boy bringing flowers to his mama? I don’t think there is. Well, except for this. I have this God-awful bush of Black Eyed Susans in my back yard. I hate them and want to kill them, but am too lazy to actually do it. So everyday, my sweet little boy goes outside to play, he comes back in with a handful of the sweetest flowers I have ever received and says “I picked these for you, mom.” These are of course, the same God-awful Black Eyed Susans that I detest. So after a few minutes of sitting in the house, he’ll see them lying limply on my desk and and he’ll say “did your flowers die mom?” I sadly tell him that yes, they did die and we’ll throw then in the trash. He’ll say “that’s OK mom, I’ll get you more ‘amorrow (tomorrow, for those who don’t know Daniel-speak).
My name is Rachel, but more importantly I am mom to Sarah, James & Daniel and step-mom to William & Clayton. Lots of times they make me want to bang my head on my desk or run away from home, but most of the time they keep me smiling and certainly make my life interesting. Neely is my other half, my soul mate, the love of my life. He's a musician, audio engineer and all around good guy. He smokes, so he's not perfect, but I'm working on him. On my blog I post things about our blended family, lots and lots of pictures and a recipe from time to time. I hope you enjoy getting to know us!
