All about us

I'm a mother of two boys - the Wee one and the Imaginative one.

The wee one is willful, independent, and articulate. His favorite phrase is "Seriously." Some of his favorite things are Hotwheels, SpyGear, Hidden picture puzzles, Target, Colorwonders, Ironman, Judy Blume's Fudge series, and the color orange. He absolutely dislikes Justin Bieber.  The Wee One absolutely loves the Tales of the Fourth Grade Nothing series.  He is my sweets eater.  His food motto is the sweeter the better.  He is also my more adventurous eater.

If I could describe the Imaginative One in one word, it would be creative. He also enjoys questioning how things work or why things work. One of his favorite activities is reading books. His favorite books are Tales of the Fourth Grade Nothing, Harry Potter series, Narnia, Percy Jackson series, and the Magic Tree House series. Actually I think he would read anything you put in front of him.  The Imaginative One sometimes acts as though he is a 40 year old in a 10 year old body.  His favorite foods involve chocolate and pumpkin pie.  He is thankful there are cocoa trees and pumpkins in the world.  His dream foodie trip would be to Hershey, PA where he could stock up on lots of chocolate.

His best buddy has been in his first grade class, part of second grade class (gifted), third grade class, and now is in his fourth grade class.  They are like two peas in a pod.  Both are big readers and can come up with great ideas.

During the day, I'm a special education teacher and at night I moonlight as the primary caretaker of the Imaginative One and Wee One. My hubby delivers pizza in the evenings/night so that we do not have to put the boys into day care. This has worked for the past nine years.

I'm also an amateur cook for my family. My grandma was my inspiration. She almost always cooked home cooked meals for my mom, sister, grandpa, myself, and herself. Once I was an adult, I would cook dinner for her and grandpa for their birthdays. I felt that a meal cooked with love was a great birthday present. Another inspiration is my father-in-law. He is a great cook. Almost every Sunday, he cooks dinner for the family. His problem is he doesn't know how to make a little of anything. He makes a lot of food. My hubby tells me that I cook just like his father.

My food weaknesses are coffee, chocolate, granola, and smoothies.
