I am very big into family, and I have a big family as well. 5 brothers and sisters (I'm the 5th of 6). 14 nieces and nephews (R Russell Patrick II joined us 10/13/13). 5 great-nephews & 6 great-nieces (Brooklyn Grace joined us 10/2/13). And no, with that many family members, I do not keep up with birthdays very well. Not well at ALL! Even with a master list on my fridge.
I'm also married. My husband and I got married here in San Antonio at the historic Sheraton Gunter Hotel downtown. And we are the proud parents of a 12 year old Alaskan Husky named Moo and three 1 year old kittens: Wicket, Willow, and Winter.
Like all Texas moms, I made my kid pose in the bluebonnets.

It's that time! Time to pack up the kids, take them to college, and try not to cry while they're happy and excited! As a parent you probably know what to make sure your kids have packed to take with them. But here are a few things that may slip your mind, and we all know that these things are last on your school-bound childrens' minds.
1-cup Measuring Cup
Maybe they’re in a cramped dorm or apartment, but having the right tools will make it easier.
Wrinkle Remover Spray
I doubt they'll be doing any ironing.
Business Casual Attire
There are many reasons to bring along some nice clothes: class presentations, job fairs, interviews, and so much more!
They still have to walk across campus in the rain. So make sure to have an umbrella, rain jacket, and something to protect their feet, like Wellingtons or Duck Shoes.
