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 →

BBQ with M1 and M2’s Aunts

Tomorrow M1 will be 17. Every year since she has come to me she has pitched a world class tantrum fit around the time of her birthday if we ever tried to have a party. So aside from immediate family only, we have only 1 time had a party. Unfortunately, because of her actions at... Continue Reading →
