The Little Stuff Matters

Hello everyone!  I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!  I am so so SO excited to be guest posting on Kelly's blog today!  We have been friends since high school and even though there are miles (about 900 miles give or take and about 15 hours away), I am thankful that we are able to keep in touch!  I love reading her blog and finding out what a day in the life with 4 kids under 4 is like and then find myself speechless when it comes to mine!  My husband would beg to differ I am sure!!  Anyway, here it goes...

My name is Rebekah and I am a 30 something (not revealing the something part just yet), married to a wonderful man who works hard so I am able to be a SAHM, and we have 3 kids.  Can I just say again how wonderful my husband is?  He picked up a part time job on top of his full time job because he knew that I did NOT want to go back to work after I had Abigail.  He worked that part time for job for about a year after Abigail was born.  I love him for that.  He sacrificed a lot of his time with his family and newborn daughter so that I would have the luxury of staying home.  I love that man!!

Now on to the kiddos!!  Our oldest, Peter, is 9 years old and in the 4th grade!  He loves reading those Big Nate books and Diary of a Wimpy Kid books!  He plays basketball and baseball!  It is a lot of fun to see him interact with his friends and realize that he is NOT the only hyper kid out there!!  He is my picky eater.  He rarely likes to try anything new unless we force him!  Oh, and he LOVES popsicles!  It could be below zero outside and he would still want a popsicle!!  Crazy boy!!

Now, on to our girl, Abigail!  Where do I begin?  She is 3 years old and occasionally she talks jibberish. She says one thing, "baht-ta-bahl" for things and neither my husband or I have no clue what it means.  So, if there are any English professors that would like to clue us in on what that means that would be great!  Other than that, she keeps me pretty busy.  She loves LOVES giving kisses and hugs!  Sometimes, my face is wet after all the kisses she gives me!  She is a little Mommy to our youngest.  I am so thankful I am able to stay home with her!

Last, but not least, is our little peanut, Maison.  He still loves to wake up once or twice a night for some Mommy and me time.  I am in the process of getting the Mommy and Me time changed to either before bedtime or in the morning.  Mr. Maison is almost 7 months old.  I love watching him explore and discover new things!  

Oh, and if you are in the mood for some useless knowledge, here are our crazy birth dates: 
Me - March 17
Peter - April 17
Abigail - March 30
Maison - April 30
Oh, and my husband is the odd man out and he is Dec 2!!  

So, I hope you enjoyed getting to know my family.  Please check my blog out over at

I just LOVE Bekah!  As she said, she and I have been friends for a LONG time!  Girl, do you remember when we would go up to Coral Video and want to rent a scary movie only to rent the same one ("Bad Moon") over and over again!!!  Bahahahaha!  That just cracks me up to this day.  Not sure if what is says about us or the VHS selection at good ole Coral!

Run on over and follow her blogfacebook & Twitter!  You will be so happy you did!

Love you girl!
