Hi Shannon - your tots are adorable. Looks like it's spring in NC.

So you're married to a Marine -- give him a hug for me!

My eldest breastfed/co-slept/homebirthed baby is lined up to do Army ROTC at college next year. Everything is squared away, but last week he came home and said, "I don't think I want to go to college - I'm enlisting in the Marines on my birthday and you can't stop me." Be still my mommy heart!
I think that was the product of a bad week at school, but the Marines has been his lifelong dream.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
