HUBBY – My husband (I know you are wowed by my creativity in naming him that!). Hubby is a loud, outgoing, fun-loving sports fanatic who is especially passionate about THE Ohio State University! I have never met a man that lights up a room quite like he does. He is always good for a laugh (unless you are his wife who has heard each joke a bagillion times!). As a parent, he is the rambunctious one-chasing the kiddos, playing hide-and-seek, flipping them around, etc. He will step in as discipline when necessary, much to my pleasant surprise. I always figured he’d be the fun parent and I’d be the disciplinarian.
CHICKEN* – That’s me! I have no clue why hubby started calling me this, but it started when we were dating and has stuck ever since! I am the quieter, introverted one, which compared to hubby, is not saying much! Growing up as a tomboy, I am also quite the sports fanatic and fortunately, for the well-being of our marriage, I very much also love anything Buckeye related! As a parent, I am the more serious one, but also the one the kids turn to for cuddles.
TURKEY*-MAN – Our 3.5 year old son! He is 100% crazy-energetic boy – loud and in a constant state of motion! He is a child that does everything to the highest degree which means that he is equally ornery and affectionate. I am pretty sure God gave him a high degree of affectionate desire in order to keep him out of continuous trouble! He loves being a big brother, especially now that she is old enough to become a perpetual playmate! He loves anything trains, cars, construction equipment or blocks!
LITTLE-FLOWER – Our 1.5 year old daughter! Although she is quieter and calmer than her big brother, she has no problem challenging us to the same degree as her big brother! She is very focused, determined and easily angered! But, she also loves her cuddles! She loves to climb into our laps with a book in hand, dances to any music she hears and is often wandering around singing!

*Apparently, hubby has a thing about poultry given he handed out the nicknames “Chicken” and “Turkey”!
