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

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.

Monday, You Did Not Let Me Down.

After our awesome 1 hour family Wii Fit workout yesterday, Mr Wall Nut and I decided that we were going to start getting up at 5am to workout. We have been talking about it for months and were so close when daylight savings time messed up my schedule. Yes. I am still bitter, and...

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...

Thankful Thursday

Happy Thursday Y’all! My kids were in rare form today. It was the type of day that I could not have predicted if I were a psychic. My morning started while Wee Nut played quietly in his room, the big kids were in the class room making paper bag puppets and Little Nut Nut...

Bring it On!

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...

We finally got the new Just Dance 2 last weekend. We’ve been having a great time playing Wii and the kids have been playing Wii Fit with me, but most of the active games that we have are 1 player. With Wii Fit, we have to take turns playing. I love the Mario Cart...

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...

Random Thoughts

Do you ever get that feeling that if you slow down and try to relax for too long that some sort of sickness will creep in, just when you let your guard down? That has happened to me twice in the past 2 weeks. The first time happened the day my parents went home...

A Cavity-Free Trip to the Dentist!

Today we walked out of the dentist after the 3 big kids got their teeth cleaned and all three are Cavity-Free! This doesn’t happen very often. I think this might actually be the second time ever in the past several years. I feel bad for my oldest son, Wing Nut, he has my teeth....
