Why Farmer Freitas' Wife?
Well, my husband loves to garden and my sister likes to call him Farmer Freitas....so you know what that makes me.
We're livin' it up on the U.P. - that's Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Punkie is 6 and LOVED Kindergarten! Isaboo is 2 and she's a smiley whirl wind. We also call her Busy-Isi. This year we welcomed little Lorenzo to our family.
Life is great!

Marley would like nothing more than to be a baby again.
Sleep on your warm and safe mom all day.
ALL of your needs are taken care of...by someone else.
And you get to mess yourself in a diaper and nobody is trying to talk you out of it.
She asks me quite often if she can get back in my tummy.
I explain that she can't go back to being a baby and she cannot and will not fit back in my tummy.
We have long conversations about all the fun things there are to do outside of my tummy.
Once I even explained that she cannot get smaller, she just has to keep getting bigger and one day she will have a baby in HER tummy.
She was WAY too excited for that and started asking how she would get a baby in her tummy and when.
I do not remind her that one day she will have a baby in her tummy....I don't have to.
She asks quite often if she has a baby in her tummy.
Me: "No, you have to be big like me...and you HAVE to be married!"
When Marley's newest cousin got blessed this past winter, Marley became obsessed with wanting to be blessed too.
I told her several times she was blessed when she was a baby.
Marley: "I want to be a baby again! I want to be blessed!"
Me: "You ARE blessed!"
My sister suggested I show Marley the pictures we took of her on her blessing day.
She LOVED them!
Then I got the great idea to pull her blessing dress out of the closet and show her.
Great idea? I don't know.
Marley: "Ok! I put that on!"
Me: "No. You're WAY too big."
Me: [holding dress up to Marley to show she is too big]
BUT, it looked like it might fit her so.....
I had to see....
She's our little peanut.
If her hair was done....not such a mess...she might look like a Queen.
