Intro - link to the outside world

Me and my baby girl!!

Well, Gina gave me the idea to start my own blog. I'll consider it my link to the "outside world". Being the stay at home mom of 5 kids... well, I don't get out much. Unless you count Wal-mart and soccer practices as "out." :) I've never been good at writing in a diary, but this is easier than writing on paper. I feel like "Doogie Howser." Remember how he wrote in his journal on the computer at the end of every episode? Yeah- I'm a dork.
I guess I should tell a little more about my family. I've been married to my soulmate for 4 1/2 years now. We both had to go thru a lot to find each other, but it was all so worth it. I have 3 kids from my 1st marriage - a son, age 11, another son age 9 1/2 and a daughter age 7. My husband has twin daughters from his 1st marriage. They are 5 months older than my daughter. They live in Canada. We use to get them for 3 weeks every couple of months. But now that they are in school it's more like spring break, a month in the summer and Christmas. Man, I wish they had been this age when we got married. It was so hard having three 3 year old girls and only one that liked me. The twins were, well I don't know how to put this nicely... umm, a lot like their mom? That would be spoiled, whiney, and haters of me. But now they like me and we get along great! They get that I am a VERY sarcastic person and when I say I'm gonna lock them in the closet I'm just kidding. Now I can make fun of their Canadian accents "eh" and they make fun of my southern accent. Anyway- my husband and I have 2 children together. Our son is 2 1/2 and our daughter is 8 weeks old. I did what I said I was going to do- I've had all my kids before I turned 30- with a few months to spare. Once you start, you might as well hurry up and finish. :)
