Holidays Come and Go

Parenting is hard. Parenting teens is hard. Parenting Grandchildren is hard. I love my kids, I love my Grandbabies but all this hard is also exhausting. I saw the meme that said "I am the kind of tired sleep can't fix." I have rarely related to something so strongly before. N got her inheritance from... Continue Reading →

Tough Times

It has been forever and it has been a lifetime all at the same time. I last wrote in August when we were on vacation, N was in a program and we were pending a court date for the babies. So much and yet so little is tough to admit. We went to court and... Continue Reading →

Haunting Victories

Have you ever had a win that really hit you like a total loss? I think that best summarizes what happened in court this past Wednesday.

One Year Anniversary

So Mad I Cried

I had to take M1 to the Nurse Practitioner today who prescribes her meds. I have concerns because she is WAY more impulsive, unable to control emotions at school and goes from zero to I am going to rip your f*** head off in 3 seconds flat. All of this misery since the meds were... Continue Reading →

Missed Rites of Passage

This was the backdrop for our announcement. I said we were expecting, she was due to arrive on 12/23/16, her name and her age. Several of my smart mouth friends (who I love dearly) made comments about my womb size and how long I waited to give birth. HAHAHA ok ok I get it but... Continue Reading →

Lies Falling Like Leaves
