Too Many Tricks

Wow this is like a bad spin cycle that just won't end. Yesterday for the first time in 13 years, I actually told the kids we were not trick or treating and that their behavior was the reason why. M2 cried and screamed at me, N cried but knew she had messed up pretty badly.... Continue Reading →
