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.

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...
