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.

The three oldest Nuts love to do face paintings, I suppose I should actually know who is who, but at this point all I know is there is one Ninja Turtle with two characters from Avatar, I think one Air Bender and one Water Bender, but I could be way off with this.

Speak. Confirm. Repeat. and do it again.

There is one ongoing conversation that has been repeated so many times since summer vacation started that it qualifies for a little bit of crazy. E Nut, my 5 year old came home from the last day of school with a squirt gun…just one. We have one squirt gun and at least 2 other...
