"Raised in a brothel in the New Orleans red light district, one could hardly blame Beaverhausen for falling victim to the trappings of a derelict lifestyle. After finding faith at a Pentecostal snake handling revival, Beaverhausen turned her life around and she shares her tales with us. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll hug your kids a little tighter." - Heywood Jablome - The Tijuana Times

"Beaverhausen has transformed my life with her inspirational accounts of child-rearing. I previously bathed my six kids every night, felt extreme guilt when they cried over having none of their five daddies around, and berated my self worth for not keeping an Architectural Digest home.
But now: I relax in my toy strewn home, knocking back my 4th glass of merlot while my 12 yr old rubs my aching corns. I threaten to leash my kids to the radiator and feel great! Oh, I raise my unshaven yeti-leg to you."

Video Pals

In one of the last posts, I might have mentioned that I lived in England in the beginning of my adult life.  I still keep in touch with several friends from across the pond, especially twin sisters, Zoe and Kim.  (I used to work with Zoe).  Zoe's girls, Holly and Lucy, always ask to see new pictures of Soph on Facebook.  This photo is apparently their favorite...
Zoe said, "My kids are obsessed with Sophie. They insist on seeing as many photos of her as you've posted every morning. This is their favourite. I'm now having to find a map showing where Ohio is for Holly. The fact that they've never met her seems irrelevant. She's like a movie star in their eyes."

And so, I decided to take a video of the girls on their way to school last Friday to send to "kids in engel."

Holly and Lucy replied with this video, that Soph watches over, and over, and over, each time asking, "Can I see my kids?"  And I'm totally ok with that because I'm in love with their sweet little English accents.
