This is my oldest. Funny, smart, kindhearted, loyal to a fault and just so darn cute. She is ready to set the world on fire with her ideas and move out into the great wide world. Mom is a little terrified but I know that I can’t hold her back. Her life is just beginning and I can’t wait to see what she does. “Mom I’m ready to be on my own but I’ll always need my mama.”

We walked into her babysitters one morning and this little boy Weiss leaned backwards over a chair to look at her and said “Chanda I’m gonna marry you!” So looked horrified and said “No you’re not!!!” I’ve never laughed so hard in my life!

Chanda was about 8 and I was teasing her about being a chicken and without missing a beat she looked at me and said “Yep! and I’m free range!!! LOL”
