I am Not as Strong as I appear. I enjoy weakness from time to time. We are a homeschooling, special needs family of 6. My 4th son has a Congenital Heart defect, and my oldest has ADHD. I am a survivor of Adultery and mental abuse. I learned that you never really know someone until you are strong enough to stand up and walk away. I love and protect my children, with everything I have. My life might seem unbelievable, but I couldn't make this shit up if I tried! Stick around & let's get to know each other.

Home Sweet Home

We are so happy that we got to bring Owee home from the hospital today! It seems so much longer than one day, and I think it is going to take me a lot longer than one day to catch up on my lack of sleep. But the important thing is that we are...

Owain’s Hospital Update

Owain has taken my computer hostage for pretty much the entire time we have been in the hospital. Earlier I got a ransom note that said unless you want me to scream all day, you will give me your computer and make sure that it is tuned into Nick Jr at all times. My...

Sleeping Sleeping All the Children are Sleeping…

I asked Wing Nut to take care of the younger kids tonight while I took a shower. Usually there is all sorts of chaos and arguing while I try to get a few minutes to myself. This time he had all the kids playing a game that I have heard them play before, but...

Random Thoughts, Sick Kids, Mended Little Hearts

Ugh! I can’t believe there is still sickness going around our house! I think we are starting to get better, Owain is definitely much better than he was last night. His fever is way down and he is done throwing himself on the ground crying from discomfort. Tonight Honey Nut was the one who...

Take It On Tuesday!

At the moment, my house is a disaster. Doing the dishes consists of stacking them up so they take up the least amount of space. Picking up the toys consists of pushing them all in a pile at one end of the room. The bathroom hasn’t been cleaned in days and I am afraid...

Honey Nut is 18 Months! And We Are Still Sick…

Yesterday Honey Nut was 18 months old. She had her 18 month well visit as well. I can’t believe that she is already 1 1/2 years old. She is running around the house trying to keep up with her brothers, copying everything they do and doing her best learn to talk. She can talk...

It has been a couple of weeks and they are still alive. The other day two of them started growing their big seedling leaves. There is still one more that hasn’t come out of the seed coat yet, but the other three are growing fast. I had them covered with plastic wrap and I...
