My Children Continue to Amaze Me (and make me tear up just a bit)

I have been going through some issues and have been writing through them on three of my blogs.. ShauniSpeaks (about my struggles) Shauni's Faith (about my day to day walk with God) and Shauni's Dreams That Come (My Poetry) Sometimes I have a theme on all three blogs and sometimes I can't believe they were written by the same person.. And if I am confused, I can imagine what my reader friends think.. 

BUT I always add a little blurb on Facebook to share with my friends and family. Today.. I got this response from PITA Boy

PITA BOY: Mom why don't you write a book, about everything that has happen in our family...and does Walmart cash checks on Sunday

Me: I did write a book about when we were homeless.. never did anything with it.. and yes just go to Customer Service

PITA BOY: Don't just write about when we were just homeless, write about it all. When you were young all the way to now talk bout how you raised us and everything we went through not just the homelessness...and thank you I will go when I get my check on Sunday

I particularly like how he offered me his support and encouragement while asking me a question and how it didn't detract from the conversation at all.. ADD much? LOL but seriously, that's how we roll!!

PITA Boy Meets His Niece

What most of you don't know is I have a rather spectacular stepson. Since the ex and I split when he was 17 I don't usually claim him. I mean his mother did a wonderful job raising him so I don't really get any of the
Aaron and His beautiful family
credit. He does claim my mother though.. Of course he does, she was grandma to him when he was just a little boy. Even went on his first plane trip, by himself, when he was 7 to spend time with her... 

He is all grown up now, 33 and starting a family of his own. He lives in Texas and someone tries to see him whenever he is up this way. This time it was PITA Boy, probably because he was the only one who actually still lives in the area.. 

Anyway, PITA Boy got to meet his beautiful niece for the first time!!

So there you have it!! The first meeting of Uncle PITA Boy and Baby Beautiful.. They seem to have hit it off!!

One of her friends shot this picture and I think it is just AWESOME..

Seriously a great shot!!
