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.

Good News is so Good, Some News is Not so Good Though

Yesterday was a good day. A long one, but still a good one. First bit of good news is that my 8 year old Wing-Nut is finally done (for the moment anyways) getting all of his cavities filled! Poor little guy has huge teeth, packed into a tiny little mouth and has such a...

My Oldest Nut Turned 8!

It was actually last week…maybe longer, but not too much. I can’t believe that my oldest just turned 8 and I am so close to having my 5th. What a quick, short, long, happy, hug filled, chaotic, fun, crazy, sleepless, exciting, overwhelming, jam packed 8 years it has been! I feel like there is...

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...

Moving forward with Owain’s next surgery

I think I feel OK about this. I knew it was coming so I have been trying to prepare myself. Of course I am sad, I am worried, I am scared, but I am OK with it. It has to be done. At least I am TRYING to be OK with this. We had...
