On this day 6 years ago [at 9:13 PM], my sweet boy came into this world. From the moment I saw his existence shine from two little lines in my hand, he changed my world. I've always wanted to be a mother. Always dreamed I would have children of my own, to have and hold… Continue reading Happy Birthday, Robert!
Hey, friends! I'm back! If you follow me on Instagram, you know that my family took a nice cruise last week. We went on The Disney Dream for their 'Merrytime' cruise, which is Christmas themed. Mercy Me (the band) and the voice cast of Adventures in Odyssey were also on board, so we got to… Continue reading Our Merry Time on The Disney Dream
It's true. This morning, at 6:58 am, my little bird turned 3 years old. I'm a bit in denial that it's been three whole years since I first held her and saw her sweet face... but oh, what a joyous three it has been. She was born on a cloudy Tuesday morning, in a stark… Continue reading Happy Birthday, Caroline!
Today, my family and I attempted to go out and have fun. Our day started like a typical Saturday- with Swim Team practice for Robert, and Swim Lessons for Caroline. After the pool stuff wrapped up, we planned to head down to Miami to hit the Zoo, since we have a membership. The forecast said… Continue reading Best Laid Plans

Well, it's been another week(+) here in the Reynolds House, and here we are on Labor Day, preparing to start the 3rd week of school tomorrow. This last week was interesting, to say the least. Robert had an excellent week at school, and we've really adjusted well to the new routine. The amount of homework… Continue reading Another Week Gone
Well, the first week of school is over. I'm sitting here on this blustery Saturday, a bit confused at how quickly the week blew by. Overall, the first week was a roaring success for both kids, even though we certainly had our fair share of bumps along the way. MONDAY Monday, Robert started Kindergarten. He was… Continue reading Back to School! Week 1 Recap.
Well, Monday morning is the beginning of a new era in the Reynolds' home. BOTH of my tiny babies (who am I kidding) are going to be at school! Robbie will be in KINDERGARTEN, because time seems to have played some kind of cruel joke on me, and little Charlie will be starting in the… Continue reading The End of an Era
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in our home. We've got our wreath up, we got a REAL honest to goodness tree this year (#project501 number ---, complete!), and we've got our lights up in the windows. My mom enlisted our help to decorate her home too, so we've been busy this week!… Continue reading Feeling the Holiday Vibes
