Jan. 4th

I guess the best place to start would be with a little bit about me and mine.

I am, Amanda aka Mommy, Manders, or Bitch (as the ex would perfer :P.) I have two wonderful boys; Riley, 2 1/2, and Aiden, 1. I am divorced and have been since September 2008, trust me it is better this way. I am a lot happier this way and the boys are better off. I am currently laid off and am working one going back to school. I am still working on getting my life back together, somehow I allowed my life not be my own while I was with the ex. I have one brother, Chris, who is in Iraq at the present time, he is a civilan contractor. This is our thrid trip over there. i say our because even though he is the one that is over there, it affects the whole family, he is over there so part of our hearts are over there. Me and the boys live with my Mom and Dad, it has it ups and downs.

Riley Jackson, aka Riley Jack. Born March 7th, 2006. My First born. He loves all the boy things, trucks, monster trucks, Thomas the Train, soccer ball (as he calls it), coloring, and beating up on his little bro. He also is starting to get into movies, I think that he has watched cars so much that he knows every line, and he is getting into the Mummy, which does not bother me because those are so of my favs.

Aiden Jacob, aka Aiden Jake. Born October 10th, 2007. The baby. He is his own. He is into trying to stay out of his brothers way, at least until he is big enough to fight his back. He loves anything with wheels that he can push and loves walking he walks just to walk, he is so funny. He is learning to talk and uses his baby jabber all of the time and points his little index finger and everything that he is talking about, he is a sight. So funny. Oh and loves to play with the computer.

Maddie Sue, aka Maddie, Giz, Gizmo, the list could on and on...... Born July 13th, 2001. My "first born." Maddie is my dog, she is a Chihuahua. She has been with me through a lot, sometimes is felt like is was the only one. Maddie enjoys puppy treats and laying around.

I almost forgot the newest member of the Waters Clan. Pickles. Pickles is a black cat that founds it way to Lakeside Plumbing. Skipper, the owners Chihuahua, and Pickles got in a fight or someone step on Pickles foot and it got hurt. So Pickles came to live with us. He is a good cat. He lets the boys play with him. He enjoys sitting outside and looking through the window when he is not in here with us.

Well this is my family. My little family of 3 plus one Chihahua and one cat. So maybe you will return and see what this years holds for us. I hope that you do and I hope that this year is a good year.
