Educated / intelligent

My worst fear for kids, besides health problems, is to end up with one of those 12-year-old slutty girls who act WAY older than they are and obsess over sex/alcohol/their looks. Every time I go to the mall I freak out that my kids will turn out like that!

As someone who is now heading down this road, I should say that I don’t even care about 10 fingers and toes at this point… Just a well-functioning brain and heart…

Talk about lowering my standards these days!  I guess I’m pretty superstitious!

After seeing the way some of our peers raise their children, and let them behave, Manfriend and I have decided that above all else we want them to be respectful – of themselves, their elders, us, strangers.

Cool (not like popular cool, just cool with themselves)



Intellectual (not just book smarts)

I want my kids to be healthy and happy.  I also would like to raise them to be respectful.  And I want them to be able to do the things that they love. ๐Ÿ™‚

#1 Healthy!  It would also be awesome if they were happy, respectful, honest, empathetic, and bilingual.  Most importantly, I just hope they’re healthy and we can work from there.

The kids we have now….I want them to continue to be







And have a great, wonderful life, and great experiences in life, happy with their life, their careers, I want my soon to be stepdaughter to find her dream of being on broadway, and I want my youngest soon to be stepdaughter to find her dream of what she wants to do, and my soon to be stepson to graduate college with honors and be happy at his new job. I have to say my fiance did a great job of raising three awesome, respectful, honest, loving kids. I couldnt be more lucky and more in love with my family ๐Ÿ™‚
