I’m a 33 year old mom of 3 girls.  I live with my dear husband Dave (most famous for his 100 Thing Challenge on http://www.guynameddave.com), our children, two cats, a dog, two guinea pigs, and a Beta fish.  We live in a suburban community in the North County of San Diego.   If you are reading this you probably already know all this, since I think the only people who read this blog are family and close friends!  Thanks for reading –  It’s a fun experience to chronicle my adventures in parenting, as well as record some reflections on what I’m reading and thinking about.

    Hi. I am also a 33 year-old mom, but to 3 boys and a girl. I randomly came across your husband’s blog on apartment therapy of all places! I am not really sure why I am writing to you, except that since you said the people reading this probably already know you and I don’t, I thought it might be interesting to you. There is just a “something” about your blog that made me like you. We read to our children at night, too. We, too hope that the messages of redemption and sacrificial love are somehow discovered by our chiildren’s hearts. I ramble on. Sorry. Thanks for reading my note!

      Hi Carrie! Thanks so much for your kind words! I appreciate you taking the time to write. “Apartment therapy?” I’m not sure what you mean. Maybe I haven’t read Dave’s blog closely enough….?!

    Hi Leanne! I’m a 36 year old mom of two boys in Oklahoma! My mom just happened across your blog and suggested it to me and I’ve been reading for the last hour…laughing out loud and crying too (grieving the loss and the “I promise” video both got me)! Thanks for sharing your journey! Stories have such power and you have a gift. Blessings, Tara

      Hi Tara! Thank you so much for your kind words. I’m glad you found me. I’ve majorly neglected my blog since my children started school. The oodles of free time I was hoping for have yet to materialize!! Good to hear from you…

    Hi Leanne 🙂

    we shook hands on Sunday when Lisa introduced us! she’s sent me a few of your posts in the past, and I’ve been kind of quietly lurking and reading!

    It was fun to meet you!

    Thanks, Leanne, for writing so well, for letting us catch a peek inside your life. I found your blog via The Rabbit Room’s post on Mr. Rogers. Thanks also for posting the “Dancing in the Minefields” video – I think it might help me articulate to a friend just why we promise to love in our vows, even when the world doesn’t support that. Hmmm, especially *because* the world doesn’t support it.
    I especially appreciated your thoughts on treating yourself gently. I suspect I’ll need that encouragement for myself tomorrow after staying up this late reading good blogs.
    Keep up the good posting – some of us out here need it!

      Thanks so much for your sweet words, Patti! I love writing and honestly can’t believe it’s been a month since my last post. AAaaaa! Must get back. Thanks for your encouragement.

    Hello, new friend. So glad to know you are here. I’ll be making this one of my “stops.” Lovely to have met you…
