I’m Barbara, the Mom On The Go, and I write this blog to record some of the stories of life with Reid Elizabeth, my girl on the go. Reid Elizabeth entered our lives at 1:23 in the afternoon on July 25, 2004. We’ve spent the last three years or so learning from each other and about each other. I have written some of this story in captions on photos and other stories in her scrapbook but many stories have been told on the phone and lost. I have a terrible memory and don’t want to lose the joy (and even the trials) of having this little person in my life.
As for me, I was 33 when Reid was born and Ken was 37. I think that 33 is a pretty good age to have your first baby but Ken thinks 37 was too old. We’re glad we were able to have her at all.
We have two cats now who also share our lives. Clio, the eldest, is a calico who is amazingly tolerant of Reid – especially when I think of how she was not tolerant of the “boy kitties” when they first came home. Leo is a bit grumpy but a Mama’s boy. Our second “boy kitty” Mars, despite being named for the God of War was a fraidy-cat, died recently and we miss him greatly.
