I'm mid 30's. The thirties are great. You have just enough gray hair to be problematic but just enough comfort in your own skin to not really give a damn. We have some great adventures and my children's antics are hilarious. They really are the funniest people I know besides Tina Fey. (I don't really know her, I just heart her)
Two of our kids came to us the old fashioned way (please, don't picture it) and two of them came to us by way of international adoption from the DR Congo. I love to write about adoption and advocate for the orphans left behind in Congo. You name it- we've been through it: post partum and post adoption depression, reactive attachment disorder, sensory processing disorder, a hard as heck adoption transition, PTSD. And while, yeah, I talk about that stuff in a scary honest way, mostly what you'll find here is encouragement for the journey and an anecdote or two about my wild kids (or the embarrassing things I do on a near daily basis) to make you laugh and get you through your day.

Cast of Characters:
Kamron- the husband/father/rocker. Really, he's a rock and roll star... kinda. He's a financial advisor by day and he plays guitar with a band for fun when his alter ego needs to pop out. When we met a million years ago, he used to wear leather pants (seriously) He's obsessed with University of Kentucky sports, trivia, traveling and making lists.
Sadie- Sadie is 12. People dog on pre-teens but she's pretty much the best. She keeps me sane. She writes out the grocery lists and reminds me when we need to buy toothpaste. She's got that totally responsible oldest child thing going for her. Sadie has a huge heart and last year, she opened her own business. She loves spending time with her friends and baking.
Miles- the baby and the wild child. Miles is 7 and is the JOY in our family. He rounds us out with his hilarity. He's wise beyond his years and his been through a lot in his short life. Miles was born in Africa and made his way into our family in early 2010. Miles is into super heroes, every single sport imaginable, cars, cereal, and his siblings. He's nuts for his brother and sisters. They would say he's just nuts.
