Home school

Nikki has had home school before. It has been met with mixed reviews with her father and I. For me it depends on the program that we put her in, and how much we actually need to be involved with the learning process. After all both of us are parents of this millennium and we have two other children to… Read more →

First Dance

These days it has been difficult in Phoenix, AZ. Almost everyday there has been a bomb threat in our fair city. After the events of San Bernadino, the police have been extra vigilant, and have taken every threat seriously. Still, Nikki was extremely excited to go to her first dance since she had to miss the first dance of the… Read more →


So I haven’t posted here in a long time, and I apologize for my absence especially after such a horrific post, but I have been dealing with life as it comes, and I’m sure you can understand where we were in that moment. Still it’s been almost a month and there are a lot of changes going on in that… Read more →

She has no filter, so she says whatever comes to her mind, and sometimes she can be really mean. Don’t get me wrong. This is one of the many things I love about… Read more →

First Day Of School

Today was Nikki’s first day of school as a teenager and at a new school. She was so nervous this morning. I just knew that I was going to get the same thing I always get when she goes to school. “I hate everybody there.” “I hate that school.” Surprisingly, I got, “I loved it there.” “I made a lot… Read more →

First Day News

This is my first post. It’s exciting for a number of reasons. First because it is the first blogging post I’ve ever made on this site, two because this is my very own page, and three because I am officially the mother of a teenage girl. I have two other children at home, but there is just something special about… Read more →
