This blog has been a long time coming and we want you to know the full story behind it.  We are two best friends.  We met when our kids were all younger and bonded over potty training and little league.  Between our two families we have 8 kids ages 1-11!  We have a mix of boys and girls which is how we created the name of our blog.  Belinda has 5 boys and I (Kristen) have 2 girls and 1 boy…..and both us would like to add onto our families!  We already have some exciting things lined up and some fun giveaways coming your way.  We invite you to get one step ahead of the game and go ahead and find us on Google+, Facebook and Twitter.  We look forward to getting to know all of you.

Best friends and now bloggers too!  Our families were reunited this past summer and hopefully I (Kristen the one in the red shirt) will get to visit them this coming summer.  Here are some pics of our kids….if they have red hair they belong to Belinda!

    So glad to see that you guys are getting this up and running. I have no idea how the blog world works, but I am excited for you both. Belinda, you will have to call me and give me a primer in what to do.

    Love you!
