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.

A Step Back

Hershey Park Pre Fontan Mini Scrambler

Looking back at this past summer, I remember the both the fear of Owain’s upcoming surgery and the excitement of our pre-surgery vacation to Hershey Park. I could do without the fear, but I sure could use a vacation from life right now.

Special Mother’s Day Parade from My Little Nuts

Every once in awhile, the kids managed to pull something out of their little brains that not only makes me smile and giggle, but also pushes back both dinner time and bed time. It’s like they know if they do something special for me that they can get away with anything. Kinda like the...

Warm days. Cool Nights. Random thunderstorms. The muddy smell of a constantly damp Earth. I love Spring! The past month has given us several warm days with open windows, followed my even more days of cold days, bundled up in coats. This week is not going to be any different. Today was around 70...

Family Movie Night: The Wizard of Oz

We watched The Wizard of Oz tonight for family Movie Night. So many times we go through a struggle of choosing what to watch. One of the kids mentioned The Wizard of Oz and it was a quick decision. From the very beginning of the movie the kids were tight lipped, with eyes glued...

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...

A few weeks ago E Nut celebrated his 7th birthday. I never thought that a 7th birthday would be that big of a deal until my oldest turned 7 a few years ago. We always think of big birthdays being 1st, 5th, 10th, 13th and so on. But when my oldest was turning 7...
