Seriously motherhood isn't...

Seriously motherhood isn't all roses. It's poop, barf, and shouting matches with a 5 yr old diva. But everyday YOU get your butt up and make their breakfast with a half smile. Here's to you, for getting up when you hear them in the hallway and not playing dead. I'd never do that.

one of my husbands...

One of my husbands biggest heros is geoffery Canada, founder of the harlem childrens zone. I've read several of his books and love his philosophy and hunger to educate all children.

One of the big pushes with his organization in educating poor - inner city kids, is creating a culture of college. this is something that we've adapted in our own home for our kids. we talk about college all the time. It is a natural step after high school.

i know my children dont live in the ghetto. i know my children aren't poor. i know my children have college educated parents. BUT it wasn't always this way. i grew up poor. i had no college educated people in my family or around me. this is my way of ensuring my children will continue to break the cycle of poverty. this is my way of ensuring that they are empowered. 


here is a video of goeffery speaking about culture of college!

within three days...


within three days you have clapped your hands, stood up (twice), learned how to receive the ball and roll it back, AND took your first swim underwater! 

next thing you know you'll be heading to kindergarten, entering a surfing competition and receiving a medical degree from Stanford. GO CARDINALS!
