Being with or away from my kids can drive me crazy.

  Sometimes when both of my kids are being difficult or I’m just beyond tired I may feel like I need a little break. But as soon as I am away from them I miss them.

It’s all fun and games until someone poops in the bathtub.

This is how my week went. The kids were pretty well behaved all week, but one day my son woke up throwing up. Is it bad that I think maybe he was so well behaved because he wasn’t feeling well? Everyone got decent sleep and got it in their own beds. This is a big… Continue reading It’s all fun and games until someone poops in the bathtub.
