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.

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.

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...
