8 mo old Mari is pulling Paris's tail

Shawn Jr has a very strange habit... he pulls his little fro out at the roots, and with the hair all intertwined in his little fingers, sucks on the middle and ring finger like that star trek hand gesture. He does it so much he will give himself a little bald spot if we keep his hair too long, and he has actually started to ask for haircuts. I let my husband know my plans for tomorrow which were for Shawnee to get a hair cut, and he kinda freaked out thinking I was going to cut it myself which I did when Shawn Jr was a little baby. I wont say it was great but it looked ok and it saved us money but I was commanded to stop at like the third cut. I was fine with that in the long run because pros do it like pros of course!
The moral of the story is, if I say I will or won't do something I keep my word. So it was annoying and just a little hurtful (pride) to have it brought up again.

Hello, my name is Rosamond.

I just thought it would be polite to introduce myself. I was (and am) a daughter first. My father is a Lutheran minister turned soldier. My mother has done a little of nearly everything but is now going back to college. I am a sister too. I have 3 sisters and 2 half-brothers.
I became a wife in 2006. Instantly I was a stepmom. Soon I was a mama too. Altogether we have 5 kids. We have full custody of my husbands kids from a previous relationship. They were never married. It's likely you will hear quite a bit about this by reading my blogs.
I worked as a Pharmacy Technician from the time I was 20 to 24. I liked it but was ready for something more, so now I am also a nursing student. I'm sticking with the healthcare field which will never disappear.
Please wish me luck! I have to be in class 80 hours a month in order to get help with childcare for our soon to be 4 year old and 16 month old which translates into 19 credit hours.
