K Is For Kids

I like kitties, but am more of a dog person.
Had a bunch of kitties in my life though, from Siamese to all-black ones. I even had one that had boots so that's what we named him. Boots.
But no. I'm going to take you into a part of my most personal life.
My heart.
My kids.
I will introduce you to my kin.
This is my oldest, and only son, Kris.
He is 18, going on 40.

This is my youngest, and only daughter, Brianna.
She is going to celebrate her sweet sixteen this August.

My son lives with me, although you wouldn't know it. He is always at his girlfriend's house.
My daughter lives with her dad, and it breaks my heart.

As any mother, I am a lioness and will roar no matter where they are and for as long as we live. These are the two beautiful beings that will always have my unconditional love and support.

Do you have kids? Tell me about them.

They are what makes my heart beat, truly. Well and a number of dogs. Four of which are currently right here! Great pictures, I so know the going on 40 routine, been there done that, not with my daughter so much but both boys! Yikes! Happy sweet sixteen I hope you both have some fun times ringing in that sweet birthday!

  7. A beautiful daughter and a handsome son -- we are alike in that! My daughter is 29, works, takes college courses, performs in a band, and is mom to my wonderful 7 year old granddaughter. My son is 32, is an indie film producer, is part owner in a historic movie theater, travels to film festivals all over to promote films and discover new ones -- what a fun job is that!! Not married, no kids -- so I'm only grandma to one. Both live in different towns but are close enough to see them often! I'm so proud of them both!

  8. Beautiful children.

    We have our older beautiful daughter (also a wonderful wife, mother, dentist). Three years younger, is our beautiful daughter (also a wonderful wife, dentist, and looks forward to being a mommy one day too). Three years younger still, is our handsome son (soon to be married, not a dentist :o) works with a fundraising company, looking forward to being a daddy one day). They are the best of friends to each other and we love when we are able to get together...for now the girls live in other states.

    Blessings & Aloha!
    I am catching up with "K" posts! Yay! Please stop by if you have a chance.

  9. Thank you for sharing your kids with us for the letter "K"...

    I have 3 kids, 2 step-kids(but I consider them my own kids too) and 5 grand-kids...

    There is too much to say about them in a comment but they are all wonderful in their own way...

    Sending a kiss your way for such a killer job!

    Thanks for linking.

    A+

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
