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.

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...

The Nut House Gets Flooded

I tried taking pictures, but that really doesn’t show the mess that my children created. The video doesn’t really do that great of a job either, but here it is anyways, lol. There are 2 videos because somehow I stopped recording in the middle of it. I was thinking that we were going to...
