Alisa. 37. New Hampshire. Married for almost three years to this wonderful, funny, smart guy. Previously married. Went through in-vitro fertilization to have my five year old magical son Keegan. Stepmother to the charming Isabelle (6). Gushingly in love with our baby boy Harper(1). Policy Wonk and dreaded bureaucrat. Lover of fine cuisine, honeybees, truly romantic moments and the underdog.

He's A Keeper

The report card is in. My family has given their opinion on this year's Thanksgiving. They concluded that:

Isabelle is delightful. She is bright, social and very comfortable around new people.

Jeff is an excellent father and does a great job providing structure and guidance, especially to a toddler. He is a very nice guy and fit right in. He had no problem jumping in and helping out.

Keegan was even more enjoyable being around Isabelle because they loved watching them play together. They thought both kids did great considering they were in a new place and with new people.

Apparently the fact that I am a great mother goes without saying. But I made them say it anyway.

Although they are sad that my marriage did not work out they are happy to meet Jeff and see how many things we have in common.

All in all I'd say it was a success.
