Honored to be a Mother

Ever since I was a little kid all I have ever wanted to do is be a mother.  Many times there are things I hope and wish for and when I get them I am disappointed, things/people rarely live up to my expectations.  Kaiden and Ethan have exceeded any thing I could have ever imagined a child to be, and I am honored to be their mother.

 I have had a rough last few days and I want to say a big thank you for all the prayers, love and support from all my friends and family.  Daddy is doing much better now, there are so many things I could wish to do to the people that hurt him, however, I am focused on keeping my mind and blog positive.

Mothers Day was very special and came along when I needed all the extra love the most.

  I woke up to breakfast in bed (yes, believe it, John cooked!) The bacon and omelet was delicious and very appreciated.  Not to mention the mimosas and chocolate covered strawberries!
On my bedside table were beautiful flowers...
And, are you ready for this (may not mean much to you guys, but since I have been at every concert he has had in Atlanta since I was 20...) JOSH GROBAN TICKETS!!!!!

The boys gave me all their hand made cards...
And Daddy, who couldn't walk 10 steps the day before surprised me by coming upstairs to wish me a happy Mother's Day, an amazingly sweet gesture (I love you Daddy!).

Got a Mani and Pedi from Jesse and his Mom (yay!)

And to top it all off (this one made me cry), Kaiden wrote me a book, illustrations and all...(Notice the Jamaican colored dress, so thoughtful)

The book goes as follows:

The Pretty Mommy, By Kaiden Harker
This book is dedicated to my Mommy because she loves me.

pg 2
My Mommy is as pretty as a flower

My Mommy is so smart she can count money

My Mommy cooks the best curry chicken.

pg 5
My Mommys favourite thing to do is watch a movie

My Mommys favourite story about me is when I peed on her when I was a baby

I know my Mommy loves me because she hugs me

pg 11

Roses are red, violets are blue, no one could have a better Mommy than you!


  1. You are blessed Becca!

Beautiful Baby Shower

This past weekend was our baby shower!!  We decided to do it a bit early because I am one of those over-organized, over-prepared types.  It was hosted by my best friend Kindle and my sister Bianca.

I told Kindle I wanted a slight winter wonderland pink theme since it is so close to Christmas and this is what I walked in to!
It was absolutely beautiful, and we were joined by all our best family and friends, we appreciate everyone that made this such a special day for us.

 This game was to guess how big I was and believe it or not the winner was Ethan!!
He definitely knows his Mummy!
 The chocolate diaper game. (It was Johns first shower, he must've thought we were all crazy).
 Getting ready for presents!! (The boys got to open them all).
 Kindle surprised the boys with a gift each.
It was a shirt with their picture saying "I'm the biggest Brother" and "I'm the big Brother" for the hospital.
Most thoughtful thing ever!!!
I wish I could relive this day over and ov…

Star Wars Birthday Party

It's that time of year for the boys double birthday party!!
Since I... I mean they are so into star wars that was the obvious choice of a party theme.

It was so cute at the end of the party after the boys opened all their gifts and John says, "Well, what did Mummy and I get you?"  They both shrugged.  I said, "We got you this beautiful party, and that is your gift."
They both hugged us and said thank you without even complaining that we didn't buy them anything, such gracious boys!
Then John brought out their bikes and they went crazy!! It was the cutest thing.

Happy Birthday to our wonderful boys, Happy 7th and 9th Birthday Ethan and Kaiden!

Welcoming Spring

Going from living in Jamaica where Spring is Sun and sand, to Georgia where spring is pollen, to Dubai where it is sun and sand to Illinois.
Let's just say I was not expecting a massive snow storm!
I have never experienced snow like this in my life!
Amazing what a difference 9am to noon can make!
This is how they do spring here it seems!

We had so much fun!
Lots of games with the kids, just dance 3, wii golf etc.

Of course John took the boys out to make a snowman and snowball fights and even gave them a big job to make a little money.
I don't know how they handle the cold so well, it truly amazes me how long they can stay out there and be completely okay.
I of course stayed inside, I do not like the cold, not one bit.  I do enjoy watching the snow from the windows though, it is so beautiful.
I even fell asleep on the carpet in front of the fireplace!

We did have a small mishap.  Kaiden decided he wanted to warm up his pillow pet and it melted on the glass on the fireplace!
