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 Nut House Family Portrait

The Nut House Family Portrait

And by family portrait, I mean all of the kids, I spend my time behind the camera. I took several hundred photos of the kids just before Christmas. Most of them were very much our family in their true form, odd faces, children running all over the place, crying, laughing, spinning, jumping, playing, forgetting...

Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday at The Nut House

Happy Thursday Y’all! So I did something really stupid yesterday. I was in the middle of a phone call with the phone company, the kids kept coming in and asking me a million questions, even though the door was closed and I told them I was on the phone, leave me alone for a...

Get Fit with Wii Fit with New Game! Get Ready to Dance!

OK, so I have absolutely nothing to post about. It is obvious that between Owee & Honey Nut getting sick, being exhausted from no real sleep for several nights and my running out of Zoloft there was no time or energy for working out. Those two babies are still fairly sick. They both have...

Happy to Be Home? Maybe. Full of Anxiety? Sure.

We are so grateful to everyone who has been praying for Owain and for all of your wonderful words of encouragement and support. *I was just getting ready to read over this post and check for random errors when Honey Nut woke up coughing, gagging and pulling for air. Fabulous. I spent about 20...

The Wet Engine vs Eat Pray Love

I haven’t vlogged in a while, and I don’t usually get so chatty, but I figured what the heck, it is Friday night so I will throw caution to the wind and ramble into my webcam. I am getting ready to give up reading Eat Pray Love until I am finished reading The Wet...

Out of the Mouths of Babes

Last week I mentioned that my sweet baby girl is fond of the F-bomb. Would it be wrong to say that I giggle when she does it? It is not a word that she is going to hear around our house or anywhere we go. Last week I didn’t think that it had any...

Out of the Mouths of Babes

My children live to embarrass me. I am convinced of it. Little do they know after giving birth to 5 kids, showing off my girlie parts of a room full of strangers on 5 different occasions, there is little that they can do to embarrass me. They are working hard at it though. Wee...

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...

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...

You know, because he is doing things like loosing teeth and learning to ride a skateboard. Little Nut Nut needed to...
