25 Things You Just Have To Know About My Kids – Mister Speed & Princess Raru

I have been writing on Kid Scoop for a while now and I’ve realized there are some pretty awesome things about my two Kid Scoop-able kids I haven’t shared with you yet. Over on Babble’s Being Pregnant blog I shared 25 random things about me and now I would love for you to get to know my two older kids better because they really are two amazing kids and totally awesome people.

Mister Speed is my 6-year old who has little  interest in reading and Princess Raru is my 5-year old who eats gluten-free and they are complete best friends. I know all moms say that their kids are the coolest things on the planet, but these two and their younger sister — I would bet money on it and not only because I am their mom.

Click through to read 25 facts about my two older children Mister Speed & Princess Raru:
