|Introduction||I'm a picture taking, home loving Mama! I use a screen name to protect my Monkey from any kooks or crazies that happen to visit. Ritsuemi is a Japanese word that means "calmness of spirit," which is something that I aspire to. Being the Mom is something that I've wanted since I was in high school.
