Wife of one handsome hunk, homeschooling mom of three boys, foster mom, daughter of God. Over the past 7 years, we've learned to love our foster children deeply, yet hold them loosely. I share with you my heart in these brief chronicles of our family life.

1. Josiah lost his first tooth!
Josiah: Mama, is the tooth fairy real?
Me: (hesitating) No.
Josiah: It's just for fun?
Me: Yeah, it's just for fun.
I'm so glad he was totally fine with that! He was telling me earlier about his friend Collin who received $5 from the tooth fairy last year. I said he would definitely not be getting $5!
Later on before bedtime...
Jadon: Is Goa-Goa going to put his tooth under his pillow?
Me: Probably Josiah: Mama, can I have a reward for my tooth?
Me: We'll see. I have to talk with Baba about it first.
2. Judah poops in the toilet now! (Well, at least for the last couple of days...)
Me: Ok, let's go to the chee-sau (bathroom in Chinese)
Judah: Tay! (ok)
I sat with him on the first day, left him alone for the second day, then sat with him today! Yay! He's 5 days shy of being 22-months old. I hope this continues so there will be no more diapers to buy!
And here are all three of the boys on a walk around the block with Misty, then playing soccer in the front yard.
