I am not just raising “a son”
I’m raising Someone’s future husband and future father... so It is my duty to raise you very well!
“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men!”
I know I won’t always be “perfect” but I’m dedicated to helping you grow into an exceptional human! —-
~ You are the anchor of my life ~ ⚓️🌎❤️

When my kids grow up, these are the kinds of memories I want them to have of  summertime.  I may be sick, but I will never stop pouring into my children so that their tomorrows can be better than their yesterdays. #ILoveMyKids #MomFirst #Memories #MakingMemories #AirwayHeights #Spokane #StartingOver #BlendedFamily #invisibleillness #Cancer #laughter
Happy birthday to the best boy a mama could ask for! This week has been chaos and today is something I've been so excited for, I love celebrating my babies. He may be tiny but he is mighty. He is close to 20lbs and we will find out definite stats next week. He started walking close to his actual birthday and grows more confident with each step. He loves his siblings and is constantly trying to help them with whatever they are doing. Despite them not really wanting his help. He has whole milk full time and loves it! He honestly loves anything he can put in his mouth. He eats just as much as the other kids do and sometimes more. He is only taking one nap a day, which I'm sad he cut his second nap out so soon. He is very stoic and we have to work for his grins and laughs. His siblings can get them from him so easily though. He loves books and playing with his toys. He is content playing for hours at a time. He is into absolutely everything and constantly on the move. He loves to steal the dogs toys and prefers them over his own half the time. He is quickly learning how to pull himself up onto things and I'm sure will climb out of his crib soon. He says dada all day long. Only has said mama a few times, but only when he his just waking up in the morning. Usually only after someone hasn't gone to get him quick enough. He loves when we sing the wheels on the bus and twinkle twinkle Little Star. He loves music and is just starting to dance to songs he may like. He is literally a ray of sunshine and the greatest blessing to our family! We couldn't have asked for a better caboose.

So I did a thing.... went to get it pierced before hitting the grocery store but my piercing from years ago was still open and all I needed was the jewelry so I had her do it for me so it was sterile - bummed she didn’t have my color but I’ll change out once I find the one I want. 
I have to say that I was impressed with the girl that does piercings here was amazing and loved her honesty that I didn’t need it pierced again. @athena_body_adornment thanks for being so professional

Bonus Mom life!! A job for really special people! Where my girls at?!
.
Guess who’s the boss?? Ralphie, duh. Then me at 4’9 with this 6’0 attitude; especially being surrounded by these giants!
.
We took Ethan to dinner the other night. @tlcaustin is def our fave place to be #kindavegan 🍤 🦀!! #marylandgirl!!
.
Can’t believe I blinked and had a kid that was 15 one day then leaving for college in the next blink!
.
Being a Bonus Mom is perfect for me because I kinda don’t love babies and have never had a desire for my own children. 🤷🏾‍♀️
.
Some things aren’t for everyone and that is TOTALLY 👌🏾 OK!

So apparently if you leave your phone unaccompanied, your kids will take selfies. 🤔🤣
On a side note: I’m so over Texas summer running. It’s like a death march out there. 5 am, 90 degrees, 72 dew point, 90 percent humidity. I’m over it. .

The birthday boy finally got to dig into his Dino themed cake today! Love my sweet baby but so sad he is getting so big and already 1 year old.

Happy Saturday!! Its just me and my little man this weekend and we've been having a blast! He was the perfect little angel while I shopped at @homesensecanada (ok ok...I gave him a TON of goldfish to eat😂). I picked up a ton of cute stuff for my step-daughters room. I'm trying to get it set up for her before shes back from camping. Time to go from a little girl room to teenage room! And I'm  loving it...because if I didn't have to share my room with my hubby, it'd look similar to hers!! 😂😂 But man...that store gets me every time! So many cute things❤

Tag your favourite home accounts that you follow on insta! I need some inspiration for the rest of my house!! #myson #toddlerlife #adorable

Movie night with my girl!!! 😄 #themeg #movienight #blendedfamily #beautifulgirl
Spent the day with my middle stepdaughter before she goes to college next week. It’s been bittersweet, the time has flown by. Just 4 years ago I was taking her to her freshman orientation. She is going to do great things, I’m so proud of her and can’t wait to see how she adapts to this new season. 
Teenage years can be tough, but the quote “the days may be long but the years go fast,” is so true. When you hit tough times remember: kids are kids, they don’t always realize what we do for them in the moment. Do it anyway. They don’t always reciprocate. Do it anyway. There will be a payoff 💕🤗

"I'm curious if anyone does this or has done this before. I had a fake Instagram acct to spy on BM who can be very HC. I wanted to see what goes on over there... how she portrays it anyway. It seemed harmless, albeit a little creepy. FH found out about it and is upset. I didn't tell him because he feels that I should just be satisfied and take the high road. I feel bad because I lied by omission. I deleted it since. Thoughts? Experiences?"

This crossing holds a very special place in my heart. Every time we pull up to this ferry I'm brought back to a place in time when I was on my very first road trip with my stepkids
🚙
We made our first memories as a blended family on that road trip even though I didn't move to Canada for another year and I wasn't 'officially' their stepmom
•
It was the first time I was around kids 24/7 which was interesting to say the least. We laughed and had a great time aside from the standard parenting challenges that I completely left for dad to deal with. At that point my only goal was to get to know the kids and hope we would like each other!
•
We've boarded this ferry a handful of times since and every time we're on another short getaway as a family making memories together, while we still can
•
It's funny how a place or item can bring back certain memories!

You know what I’m thinking about? How we have become so accustomed to the finished product, that we neglect to appreciate the work that things take. This photo is of my spouse hard at work to make us some fresh pasta. I’ve always thought that it was TOO hard, and required tools that we didn’t posses— boy was I limiting the greatness that lied within us. •
•
•
So here we are, on a random day, my handsome decides to tackle one of his favorite meals, and make us some homemade pasta. Of course, my insides freak, but something about him being assured, calmed the worry in me. He did his research, and made this beautiful masterpiece. PASTA! •
•
•
Moral of the story: when we put in the work, we appreciate the reward. We can dictate all day long, but if you’ve never been through it, you won’t know what feelings you have coming out of it. And for the sake of this pasta, we were amazed, excited, proud, and ready to tackle more, TOGETHER 💋👌🏾❤️ to all my folks in relationships- build your foundation; set your walls firmly; and decorate your interior the way that you want it.

Attending a Trauma Workshop this weekend and found this in my cup of tea while discussing the importance of gratitude in hard or painful situations. Stepmoms, I know there are days you wonder what the heck you’ve gotten yourself into and it’s so tempting to think about how much easier your life would be without the chaos of stepparenting, coparenting and the ex. But, this IS our life and the truth is, we have so much to be grateful for. So many people would kill for the life we have. No, it’s not perfect, but it’s YOURS and every single moment, even the hard one, is a precious gift. Don’t let anything or anyone steal YOUR joy. Now get out there and dance! 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻 #stepmom #stepmomproblems #stepmomlife #stepmomma #blendedfamily #blendedandblessed #blended #blessed #grateful #perspective #dance #mom #lifeisgood #lifeissweet #godisgood #saturday

There they are. Both ready to start their new journeys. So proud. So excited. As a mom I don't know if I could be full of any more emotion than I am right now looking at these pictures of them.
Any tips as we navigate having two kids in college??!!

Your happiness lies within those few seconds of war and peace; in ANY life situation you’re currently dealing with. Choose well, friends. Choose understanding. Learn. Grow. 💕—————————————————————————————————————— #happy  #healthy  #choosewell  #pause  #praise  #positive  #busymomlife  #youthcouncil  #momsofinstagram  #kidsofinstagram  #blendedfamily  #blendedfamilies  #smile  #saturdayvibes  #marriage  #counseling  #worth  #value  #success  #adayinthelife  #writerslife  #writersofinstagram  #frisco  #littleelm  #texas  #texoma  #kstepchinski 
I saw this and fell over and died. After the EMT revived me I decided to post this. Please don't die of laughter. I can't be responsible for a laughter crisis. This is THE BEST!

Hi everyone!! I’ve finally decided to dedicate an account to the honesty of my mom life. I don’t have a new home to show renovation pictures of so instead, I’ll share my before and after of the epic messes my children make. I will share my many moments of anxiety. I will share the daily struggle I feel about being a working mom. But I’ll also share my successes. Well, at least when I *feel* like a success. 😂. #momestylife #blendedfamily #momofthree #balance

After almost 8 months my family is together again. Its the little things that make my life happy & its times like this that make it worth all the struggle. #kidsday #saturdaybythewater #blendedfamily #matchingjordans
This week has been amazing beach day, bug hunts, walks, pottery painting and a London trip not sure we could have fitted too much more in. I have LOVED having a solid block of time off work although I can already feel that Sunday sinking feeling looming but I’m suppressing that along with the chocolate craving for the packet of m&ms that I told little man he couldn’t eat because it was too late - will not be a hypocrite!! 🤦🏻‍♀️ #summerholidayfun #stepmumlife #stepson #sometimesitsthelittlethings

So the last couple days have been tough and anxiety ⬆️. Then I went to Costco. On a Saturday. So excuse me while I take a few quiet moments 🙅🏻‍♀️ with these gummy bears 🐻

Thank you

I am so incredibly thankful to have such an amazing husband. Things aren’t always sunshine and roses. We fight over stupid things occasionally, and we don’t always agree, but those times are few and far between. He works so hard for our family, and he supports ALL of our wild things, and he is so good at finding ways to connect with each of them, from playing candy land with our littlest to letting our oldest park my car and showing him how to change brake sensors (after fixing the brakes of course). #blendedfamily #happilymarried #woodfordswildthings #norwoodfordpartyof6 #woodfordpartyof6

These handsome dudes were in desperate need of some grooming today. I'm so glad I learned how to cut boys hair 17 years ago! I think it's safe to say I have saved thousands of dollars over the years by doing it myself👍🏽🤓. However, I won't mention how many times I may have threatened to make them pay me if they wouldn't stop giggling and screeching and moving about when I trim their necks and around their ears😅💕.

My whole world 🌏 #love #babyboy  #blendedfamily
Today we celebrate ONE YEAR engaged. I'm marrying into a wonderful, loving, supportive family full of love and respect. ❤️💙💜 Our date is October 13, 2019. I can hardly wait. #igotabeau #imgettingmarriedright #doingthisthingright #blendedfamily #engaged

Lola's father has two kids from a previous relationship. Rodney and I dated for 6 months before I got to meet them. Two months later, we found out I was pregnant. We waited to tell them in fear of the reaction. At 4 months, we broke the news to them that they were going to have a little baby brother or sister. His youngest, Zackery, was thrilled. Started giving me boy names immediately. His oldest. Makayla, had a complete meltdown. She had said over and over again that she didn't want more siblings. It was hard to swallow. I was fortunate enough to have been able to build a relationship with his kids in a very short amount of time,  and now everything was changing. 
When Lola finally arrived into this world in April,  everyone. Makayla included,  were so in love with her. I am so grateful to have Zackery and Makayla in my life. They have taught me so much about love and patience. And I am very proud of my small, blended family.

This weekend is all about this kid! It’s his annual karate seminar weekend so we will be spending most of it inside instead of out. ⠀
.⠀
Tonight he will get his certificate for his new rank and next week he will add another stripe to his belt. ⠀
.⠀
I’m so proud of all of his hard work and it’s been a joy watching him gain confidence through karate. If you’ve considered karate for your kids or yourself, DO IT! ⠀

Anniversary post #2... These kids! They were young, innocent and hurt through divorce. They grew up and Gods hand has led them , kept them and graced them with beautiful families of their own . They love Jesus. They know life isn’t perfect. But, they know redemption too. Roman’s 8:28 means so much to me because though divorce was not good, God in his great love worked all things together for our good and more importantly used the hard to teach us grace and forgiveness. I love these kids and their spouses...I could not be prouder than I am of each of them. We married on 8/18/90 but that day we also became a family. Today 8/18/18 is our 28th Anniversary 828! #blendedfamily #godwithus #grace

not your average family over here. 🙋🏼‍♀️ to make a REALLY long story short, we are not the cute little family portrayed in this picture 🙈{well we are pretty cute, but} allen is my step father, we are missing my two step sister’s, my half sister Rhonda is from my fathers first marriage, my father passed away in 2003, & my twin sister & myself are both divorced 🤣🤣 you could say dysfunctional is our middle name!

_
here is what im getting at, we ALL have our own set of problems, NO FAMILY is PERFECT. everyone carries a burden you cannot see. try to remember this when looking at the highlight reals of Instagram. 
_
i love my family for what it is. the struggles we have faced together have made us stronger & more importantly they make us cherish the good times we have together.

Maybe it’s too soon or maybe we don’t speak of it enough that it needs to be said. And it needs to be said more often. ....
We hide behind shame. We hide behind the no one will understand. But what if we all do. What if by breaking the shame we shed light on how messed up this world is. ....
You see this picture here....well it is not the whole picture. Yes, we are smiling. Yes, we seem happy to be with each other. But what you don’t see...
....
5 hours after this, we drove home in silence. We barely said goodnight to each other. I slept on the couch. Today came and we haven’t had pleasant conversation and I’ve cried more than I should. ....
And I want to delete this post. But I won’t. I won’t let the fear of what will they think, who will see it stop me anymore. ....
Satan is working hard at destroying families. He has infiltrated our homes with substances that are toxic. He has filled out homes with access to cruelty, inappropriateness and the list can go on and on. He has people believing and acting in ways they shouldn’t. ....
I know I have been through today before and I know I will venture out of it. I will continue to work on me. I love this man with all my heart and I know that Satan is strong. My God is pretty mighty and I know He will prevail. .....
“He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” 1John 8:3. I will do as my father in heaven instructed and I will destroy the works of Satan.

So many hard questions lately... ..why can’t I have white skin?
...why doesn’t my older sister’s dad or my brothers’ mom live with us?
....why is my hair so curly?
...why don’t more kids look like me?

From the beginning I know being a blended, mixed race couple and family would have some struggles and questions but I know all families are faced with some type of questions. 
But I didn’t necessarily think these questions would come from my toddlers.
I have always tried to point out their special differences but also their similarities. Unfortunately I suspect these questions will only get harder as they get older.
Please god grant me the ability to teach my kiddos tolerance, strength, perseverance, and self love. May our home be a place of comfort, love, and truth. May we as parents model behaviors of honesty, determination, and respect.

#coparenting and #blendedfamily life is pretty much the most beautiful thing I have ever been a part of. To watch these kids grow up and grow closer makes my heart so full. And to be able to spend time with the three of them and form a bond with their baby brother is the greatest privilege. It’s not the life I would have chosen initially I cannot imagine it any other way. #siblings #nosuchthingashalfsiblings #sistersbrother #ourfamily #blessed #stowaway #coparent
365 days we said yes. Yes to the present. Yes to the future. Yes to a life long commitment of laughter, love, trials, tribulations, growth and experiences (oh and kids). Our friends say we make this love  thing look easy. It took us over 30 years to find one another. Through failed marriages and busted relationships we learned that communication and transparency is what makes a successful marriage. 
Here’s to us. Happy Anniversary!💍 Signed

Not the most #flattering pic in the world, but the #accomplishment in this damn heat & humidity is pretty damn #monumental to me! 😊

As part of my #MarathonTraining I completed an "unofficial" #HalfMarathon of 13.1 miles today.  As most of my #LongRun posts say each weekend, this is the furthest I've ever run!  I'm #StillNotaRunner but damn....I'm feelin' pretty proud & accomplished!
🏅

Your likes and words of encouragement help propel me through this training, so this 47 year #olddude wants to say #ThankYou (and keep up the good support...lol). 😁

But I really do owe it all to my #PersonalTrainer @christinepierman who keeps me supplied with tips, pre-run #ProteinShakes and #Energize drinks as well as map, pace and all sorts of info. 😍

Thanks for following along in my #RunningJourney.  Here's to the next #ThirteenPointOne !!!! Now...it's #NapTime

No filter required! Have been really in need of veg after a week away eating absolute rubbish and this was just what the doctor (and the baby) ordered! Gorgeously ripe tomatoes and avocado with some soft cheese and sweet chilli on wholemeal toast - yum 😋 #freshfood #foodporn #food #nutritious #delicious #healthy #colourful #yummy #pregnant #pregnancy #blendedfamily #blended #pregnantbelly #preggo #expecting #mumtobe #growingbelly #baby #babyboy #motherhood #mommytobe #bebe #birth #body #bodytransformation #sblendedmummy

This is what you look like after a 11 hour flight then a 6 hour wait through your 10 hour layover before getting onto another plane for 11 hours after leaving behind your wife you just married a week ago. Life sometimes sucks. Bright side I make my way back to our two precious babies Hunter and Hailey who are asking me daily now “Mommy we miss you when are you coming home” so wish I could hav had them there on our special day. Can’t wait to see them and give them the biggest mommy missed you hugs. Bittersweet. Torn always torn.
