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...

Honey Nut is 18 Months! And We Are Still Sick…

Yesterday Honey Nut was 18 months old. She had her 18 month well visit as well. I can’t believe that she is already 1 1/2 years old. She is running around the house trying to keep up with her brothers, copying everything they do and doing her best learn to talk. She can talk...
