Same thing kind of happened recently with Logan. My friend was over with her daughter and she acts just like Logan- hyper, silly, etc. Couple days later Logan was asking about her. I said, did you like her (meaning as a friend) and he said yeah as a friend not as a girlfriend. LOL, okay I said, oh why not as a girlfriend, just being silly with him and he said, I want to marry someone peach like me. Well really someone who looks like you mom, peach and skinny (bless his heart) and I said well the color of her skin doesn't matter and he said, I dont know it just feels right, that I need to marry someone peach.
I was really floored that he would even think about it. Of course I was just teasing him about a girlfriend. The things he says at times really just makes me think- where does this come from?
I would say that more then half of our friends are black, so Logan sees their kids a lot and plays with their kids, so it's not like he isnt exposed to people of different races.View Thread
Top would be my SO and my mom. Then my friend that I have known all of my life. 2 girls from college days that have been there for me through every up and down. And another BFF who I went to highschool with and became BFF in college. So total 6 LOL. The 4 girls, I cherish and love just like sisters. My SO because he is my everything and is there on every level. And of course my mom who I talk to several times a week and always offers the best advice.View Thread

Name: Kristin Kids/school plans: DS: 7, starting 2nd grade at a new school
Current Biggest Challenges: Eating healthy and being more active. More so for DS. Since we bought a new house this summer, I have been busy but I havent' been very good about making DS get out and get active. I chalk it up to a new neighborhood, we got new cats, he got a DSi.
Best summer moment so far: Went hiking with DS and fiance and had a picnic lunch. Also visited some friends in KY and that was nice Other then that summer has been consumed by the new house.View Thread
When I deceided to leave Logan's dad I was so scared. I didnt want the stigma of being an unwed, single mom. I was scared to do it on my own. How was I going to pay the bills? Could I handle it all on my own? But I knew I TRIED everything to make it work. To me, I didnt want my son to grow up and think it was okay to act like how his dad was acting. And I was mostly doing it on my own anyways. I was getting ready to turn 29 and I thought, do I want to wake up at 40 and this be my life? I am still young, I shouldnt live this way. It was hard at first. Man that first winter was pure heck. I was poor, Logan was upset about everything and acting out, I was lonely. I could go on. But I worked through it.
Then I met my now fiance. And I was like oooh this is how you're supposed to be treated. Even if I wouldnt have met him, I was happier being single then being with my son's dad.
And I had to learn to do a ton of things on my own and suck it up and take care of all the sucky things, but it has only made me stronger and more proud of myself.
Good luck and (((HUGS))) these are not easy choices.View Thread
Projectile vomit (hotdogs) in the car. From the backseat all the way to the front windshield. Caked into the speakers on the side of the door, carpet, vents, everything. It was bad. And it was the middle of winter... freezing cold to clean up. And of course it froze by the time I got Logan settled in and could come out and clean. I had to put some elbow grease into it. Ha ha.View Thread
My DS still slept in bed with me, until my fiance and I got engaged and he moved in. I still lay in bed with DS and cuddle with him. We are both very affectionate with each other. I figure it wont last much longer, so I am going to get it as much as I can. For us, it's a nice time to bond. Wind down after a long day, cuddle in bed and watch a movie View Thread
