T and I met during the summer of 1999. Soon after and realizing that we were very much in love we decided to get married in April of 2000. It takes a special kind of woman to put up with me and my shit. T is that woman. She is such a strong, powerful, confident and independant person.
She gives all of herself to the kids and she never has to think twice about it. As a homeschooling mom she now has three of the C's under a steady eye to make sure they are staying on top of the learning. Thank goodness she is so much smarter than I because I could never teach them as well as she does.
T has always taken care of me but as of March 2014 we found out that I was diagnosed with Brain Cancer. Since then she has gone above and beyond.
I could not ask for a better wife or mother for our 4 C's. I wake up each day thankful for meeting her and being lucky enought to have her fall in love with me.
Thank you T for making me a better person and making my life better and worth living. You make living with Brain Cancer #BetterThanDying
C1 and C2
C3 and C4
Being the oldest of the 4 C's, C 1 has accepted the role of being the BIGGEST brother to the other 3 C's. My long, curly haired, blue eyed boy is very creative and loves music, as well as art and reading. Always there to lend a helping hand and teach his brothers and sister things. His love of movies helps his imagination and I often catch him acting things out that he has seen and or read. You can sometimes find him outside flying around the driveway on his scooter that he got for his 6th birthday, and he is learning new tricks everytime. C 1 sometimes gets a raw deal from me because he is so smart and I feel he is smarter than his age, I alot of time forget that he is only six and I put alot on him to much for a 9 yr. old. A little me is what I see in him, a joke teller, silly, and always acting crazy. Growing older has not stopped him from being the sweet, caring, sensitive boy that he started out as. I love you my "Big Buddy"
Never to be outdone as the second born C 2 has his own role on our team. Whenever I think of C 2, I think of a middle linebacker like Brian Urlacher of the Chicago Bears. Strong, powerful, quick, hard hitting and relentless. Those are all qualities that C 2 has. While that being said, he also has the softest and sweetest personality. He does not like to be without his big brother C 1, and when they are apart he is quick to get back to him. Ask him about his little sister and you probably won't like what you hear but don't be fooled cause he can also be found playing with her off in another room and having fun. C 2 loves to play soccer, and ride his scooter also. My long brown haired, brown eyed boy could be a double for a young Tarzan. With bruises and bumps and scrapes trying to hold him back his strong will and never give up attitude are what makes him who he is....The "C 2-I-Nater"
My little Princess C 3 is now 6 but she is already showing sings that she is a mini-T. Having me wrapped around her little finger like her mom does. My only daughter has grown up so fast while trying to keep up with her two older brothers and she is by far the toughest of the 4 C's. Her beautiful blue eyes and light brown curly hair always draw attention and envy. The quote "Anything you can do I can do better" applies to my Princess. She also has the same strong willed personality as C 2 and maybe that is why they butt heads so often. C 3 loves to go outside and fly down the driveway on her hot wheels and also go out on the jump-o-lene. I know I have a long time comming on this or at least I hope and pray that I do, but boys of the world hear me now....You mess with C 3, you won't have to deal with me or her brothers....you will have to deal with HER! Tim McGraw's song "My Little Girl" is how I see me and her. This 6 year old going on 13 C 3 will always be "My Little Girl"
As he will probably be labeled forever as the "Baby" C 4 who is a little older than 3 years old now has shown that he is a happy, easy going lovable child. Born with a full head of almost black hair and brown eyes, he has lost most of it and now it is growing back dark brown and the eyes are blue. Among things that C 4 loves, um let's see....boobs, mommy, clean diapers, sleeping, baths, and more boobs..(T's and no one else's). He loves to watch the other 3 C's play and run around and have fun. I can see it in his eyes that he just can't wait to mix it up with them. I love on Saturday's and Sunday's when I have football on and he sits with me and watches it with THIS DADDY. He likes it when T put's on the carrier (anyone of the 12 we have) and carts him around. He is such a big boy and has a few teeth and even though T dosn't want him to yet, I think he is about to start crawling. C 4 will have 3 older siblings to learn from and they all love him so much and can't wait to teach him things and share stuff with him. So in the future we will see if he follows the footsteps of C 1, C 2 & C 3 or if he bulldozes his own path. Might be last but never least and always a beast. Love you lots C 4.
