About Me

I’m a stay at home mother of two beautiful children, Zoey and Zane. I spend most of my days wiping butts and cleaning up…but what can I say I love every minute of it. I love the time I get to spend each day with my children thanks to God and my wonderful husband. This blog is about our daily happenings at the Blakley Ranch. Hope you enjoy!

Name: Zoey Blakley
Age: 3
Height: 41 inches
Weight: 43 pounds

It’s the night before Zoey starts preschool and I thought it would be fun to have a short question and answer session with her. I thought this would be a great way to document some of her favorite things at the age of three. I will definitely make this a tradition at the start of each school year. It will be something fun to look back on as she grows and matures each year. However, this year my baby girl’s answers were short and sweet and too cute not to blog.

Mom: “What’s your favorite color?”
Zoey: “Pink”

Mom: “What’s your favorite book?”
Zoey: “Someday” (by Alison Meghee and Peter Reynolds)

Mom: “What’s your favorite food?
Zoey: “ Steak and Potatoes”

Mom: “What do you like to do?”
Zoey: “Ride buttermilk and color”

Mom: “What do you want to be when you grow up?”
Zoey: “A pet doctor”

Mom: “Who are some of your friends?”
Zoey: “Katelyn Connor, Kate Hagaman, and Mama” (she leans into me and gives me a hug)

Mom: “Where are you going tomorrow?”
Zoey: “To school at Mrs. Connie’s…I‘m so excited! Are you going to come right back and pick me up?”

Mom: “Yes, after you get finished learning for the day.”
Zoey: “Ok, I’m so excited!”

Mom: “I know you are…your going to have a great time. Remember to use good manners, to share, and to mind Mrs. Connie.”
Zoey: “If someone does not mind me and share I’ll tell Mrs. Connie.”

Mom: “Well, you let Mrs. Connie handle the other children…they don’t have to mind you. Mrs. Connie is the teacher and they will mind her.”
Zoey: “Did you know my Boomaw’s a teacher?” (Boomaw is what Zoey calls her grandmother)

Mom: “Yes.”
Zoey: “Well, if those kids don’t mind me Boomaw will take care of them for Mrs. Connie.”

Mom: “Ok, Zoey just remember your not the boss and you have to have good manners and play well with the kids.”
Zoey: “I know Mama…you don‘t always have to tell me that!”

Mom: “I just wanted to remind you.”
Zoey: “I love you mom and I’m going to have fun at school…and mind Mrs. Connie. Maybe Mrs. Connie can make brother mind.

Mom: “Yea, sometimes brother doesn't mind.”
Zoey: “No, but we sure do love that brother…don‘t we?”

Mom: “Yes, Precious…and I sure do love that sister too!”
