Who I Am
I'm 30 years old. My children are my light, my world. I was born in Ontario,Canada and after living in
British Columbia for 13 years, I now reside back in Ontario. I am a vegetarian and live by the saying *Harm None.*
I have four beautiful, wonderful children. They are the joy of my life. I love
them so very much. They are forever getting into things and keeping me on my toes! I could tell you thousands of stories
that would have you rolling on the floor laughing.
Like when my oldest son about, at four, laid down on the floor
in the local grocery store and gave a VERY graphic display, legs open, screams and moans included, of how a woman gives birth.
( thanks to my babysitter I had and the discovery channel) He then gave the same show to his preschool class! Lets just
say the mothers there were NOT too happy.
Or when Summer and Kyler wanted to see what would happen if they flushed
potatoes down the toliet. result: we had no toliet for a while and mommy went broke!
Or when my eldest daughter
got into ALL of my makeup to make herself look *pwetty* (she already is!!) There was make up EVERYWHERE. Her face, her hands,
her clothes, my walls, the floor.
MY WALLS... oh my poor, poor walls have seen so much abuse at the hands
of these two, its isnt funny. Whether it be one of the millions of times they have fingerpainted and added handprints on ALL
of my walls to when they have fed the food they do not like to them. (thank goodness they have finally grown out of this stage)
Or of the countless pictures they have coloured on my walls to see if mommy liked them. Yes, the pictures were very pretty,
but why my walls!!!??!! My POOR walls!
Speaking of pretty pictures they did draw one very nice one that they were VERY
proud of with sidewalk chalk. The only problem.... It was all over a white carpet in their bedroom!
are endless. The laughs and memories are priceless. The smiles never end.( or the tears at times). They may be monsters,
but they are MY monsters and I love them VERY much.
I FINALLY know what it is I want to do with my life. I have decided that more than
anything I would like to work with abused children. I also want to find more ways to bring more awareness of abuse to the
public. I think that too many people live in denial that it exists and that it's about time that we stand up and say *It exists,
it's a HUGE problem and something more needs done*.
What else to say about me? I am shy, but can be VERY outspoken depending
on the issue. I have very strong opinions on certain issues and do not back done from stating exactly what my thoughts are.
I love to get into discussions on almost anything, especially on religion, equal rights, emotional, physical and sexual abuse,
murder, the death penatly, drinking and driving, abortion, rape, child abuse,racial discussions, drugs, war and so forth.
I have an open mind and love to hear what others say. I think these are great issues to discuss, but in a calm adult manner
with all parties keeping an open mind and not judging. To keep an open mind in my opinion, is making it so that you can increase
your knowledge. And isn't that what life is about? Learning things?
I guess all else that I have to say is that
I am who I am and nothing anyone says or does is going to change that. I have to be true to me. I value honesty from others,
so I expect nothing less of me. I refuse to live a lie. To me it is important to be true to who you are. If someone doesn't
like who I am, they do not have to talk to me,simple as that. I am me, no one else, never have been, never will be :-)
