Reset Needed

Good morning all can I go back to bed now sigh.....last night was super rough. N decided she didn't need to listen to a darn thing I said and was escalating out of control.

Moving Up Ceremony

Today M2 graduated from the 8th grade at the local middle school. It was a big deal for her and the fact she wanted to be in the reverse parade to celebrate caught me off guard but I was happy to oblige. M2 is sensitive to noise so the honking and yelling I worried might... Continue Reading →

Rebellious Teens
