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.

Another Virginia Snow Storm, Another Post Full of Snowy Pictures

Little Nut Nut and E Nut kicking back eating a snowball snack.

This is the storm from last week that kept my public schooler home from Friday to Thursday. Every once in a while a scooper comes along and pushes some snow around. The plow only drove down our street once, many of the streets are 3-4 inches deep with ice, full of pot holes and...

She Nut’s First Meal of Rice Cereal

She Nut is sitting in her highchair for the first time.
Up until last night this highchair used to belong to Little Nut Nut.
Looks like it is time to pull out the bench for the dinning room table since E Nut has been kicked out of his booster seat so Little Nut Nut has a place to sit at the table now.

I have been trying to find a good time to feed She Nut rice cereal for the first time for the past couple of weeks. When we were all sick, the day would get away from me before I ever got the chance. She has started to wake up again for middle of the...

Moments before he dumped all of the crayons out of the box, Wee Nut was actually putting them all away. I guess he needed to experience both the filling of the box and then the emptying of it. I can already see the artwork on the walls he will create in the future…  ...
