A to Z April Challenge Letter S

Selena is my oldest kid. I still can't believe I have a 36 year old!! WHAAAA??!!??!
Selena is the mom of Alice.  Partner to Dan. 
Selena works full time for the police department. Thankfully, she LOVES her job... cause I get to watch Alice while she is at work. (I know... LUCKY NaNa!!)

Selena also volunteers at Take The Lead Canine Training 2 days a week.

Selena's also in school getting her Masters.





THEN... she crams a weeks work of extra actives on her days off! I'm exhausted JUST TYPING all this!!


Another one of my crazy kids that loves to hike and run marathons.  (SERIOUSLY!! These girls of mine did NOT get that from me!!) Exercise for FUN?!??! WHAT is in the food they are eating?!?!  (I already checked for drugs and alcohol)



















S is for Selena: silly, funny, sarcastic and energetic!!



A to Z Challenge blog everyday except Sunday (per the rules) with my theme being what makes me happy, what inspires me and what makes me ME!!!  So be prepared for more information about me than you ever wanted to know!!

  1. You must be really proud of your daughter! You do seem as awesome as her in terms of all the things you have to juggle *duly impressed*

  2. I'm totally with you on the exercising for fun thing - seems more like torture to me. I really love that first picture, although I have no idea how they got a little one and two dogs to stay in position and looking at the camera - truly impressive!

    Hope you’re having fun with the A to Z challenge,
    Jocelyn

  8. Hi, Connie! Nice to meet you.

    Daughters are wonderful. I have a daughter, too. Her name is Heidi and she just turned 52 in December. But that's not the scary part. Her own daughter, my granddaughter, just turned 28 in February. Where does the time go?

  22. Connie, you're going to have to let me know what kind of batteries Selena runs on. I felt tired just reading about all the things she does!

    That is so awesome that she leads such a fulfilling life (including her job). It definitely makes me want to get up and enjoy mine even more.

  24. I love you tribute to the letter "S" Selena is one Super Mom. Your whole family seems to have quite a empowering zest for life and health. You sell yourself short! They get that drive from you in many other ways. You have taught them about love, family and life it's self.I love hearing about your family. It really brings your site to a more personal level, for your readers to relate. You are a great Mom!
