If you are a regular reader, this post may confuse the heck out of you. So you know, I’m participating in the 5 Minutes 4 Mom Ultimate Blog Party.  It’s just a little huge blog hopping party to make new friends.  If you have a blog…you should play.

Hello party people!  Welcome to my little piece of the world wide web.  I’m happy that you stopped by.  No, really.

My name is Rhea (REE-ah).  Not RAY-ah or RAY, but REE-ah.  Say it with me…REE-ahhhh.  Ok.  Now that that is out of the way {it’s amazing how difficult 4 little letters can be for some people}.  I call myself the Mommy to Three Monkeys because, well, I have three BOYS.  That’s about as close to raising actual monkeys as you can get.  I’m a 30-something year old, wanna-be hippie mom living in Southern California with my husband of 10 years, Bob.

My oldest son, Anthony was born in 2004 and not even one year later I learned I was pregnant with not one other baby, but twins.  In 2006 (19 months later) I had the little brothers, Nathan & Gabriel.  As if life wasn’t crazy enough, I decided in the late part of 2006 that I wanted to be a surrogate.  So, in 2007 I delivered surrogate triplets {not a typo…I said triplets}.  This made six babies in three years.  I don’t think my husband appreciated all the hormones flying around for so long!

I went on to have one more surrogate baby in 2010 and now my baby making days are behind me.


I’m an eclectic thing with a wide range of interests.  I’m always willing to try something new.  We love to go camping and off roading.  I bake and am dabbling in cookie arts.  Charity work makes me happy and I’ve participated in the Susan G Komen 3 Day for the Cure.  I raise money and awareness for my 2 year old cousin’s Neuroblastoma fight.  I love to design websites (mine changes…often).

Hhmmm…what else?

OH!  I homeschool, too.  Now THAT’S and adventure!

In the blogging community, I’ve met a lot of great people, and a lot of ass holes.  It’s good to form a bond with a few like-minded people so that you can bounce ideas around while keeping your sanity.  My very best friends in the whole world wide web are:  Cheryl, Heather, Lucy, Amanda and Kathleen.  I can’t thank them enough for all of their support.  Maybe you and I can become really great friends, too…as long as you’re not an ass hole.  HA, I’m so funny {sometimes}.

I really just talk about whatever comes up around here.  I truly just share my life.  I look forward to getting to meet some new friends, thanks for stopping by!
