Kelly's Korner Marcus & Me - Mom of One Bio Child

Our baby looking for relief from teething
Marcus has been our one and only  bio kid for 18 years.  Kiana came to lived with us from 2010 to 2011.  We truly loved having her here.  And we still consider her one of us!
Marcus and Kiana

My hat goes off to those who have more then one.  It's definitely hard work!

My husband and I are so proud of Marcus.  We gave him a life surrounded with culture, music, community service, great mentors and frequent moves. He gave us insight throughout the years.  He's always been our motivation and inspiration.  He's our blessing.
Marcus throughout the years!

I wanted to share with moms of young child some of my mothering experience over the years.  Your children grow up, chose their own journeys and make mistakes.  There's lots of laughs and many tears along the way.  They may not going in the direction that you might have chosen for them but you support and love them 100%!
Marcus and Toby

Now that Marcus is 19 years and planning his exit from the family home we will miss him so much.  But he knows whenever he needs us he can call on us and we will be there so fast.  Because he's always going to be our "Little One".

Debutting Our New Digital Camera from Office Depot!

I took a chance and went to Office Depot to see what bargains I could find to replace our died 4 yr old 8 megapixels digital camera. 

I was not disappointed with this 16 megapixels Kodak easyshare camera.  I also purched the support kit and 2 year replacement warranty.

Total $140.  I love the crisp and vibrant colors!

I want to kudos to the staff!  They provided me pros and cons that left me feeling confident with my choice.

Marcus plans on using this camera for his videos.  I think that will give us a quick turnover since my husband has decided to take the netbook to work.  and that's where Marcus had recorded his videos!

We thrilled to have a camera back in the BerryMorin household.

Just using some materials, leggings and a long sleeve shirt that you have around the house you can create a great costume!

Understanding Pain: What to do about it in less than five minutes?

I thought I would share this video with you. After 11 years of taking various opiates I decided to stop...I found that my pain did lower. I'm also exercising regularly, have a chronic pain adviser, and slowly removing those road blocks and fear that developed over the years.

Over time I hope I'll be able to re-train my brain. Wish me luck.
