Like, when you were a kid and beat out all the other neighborhood punks in a bike race. Throwing your hands up in victory… only to go flying over the handle bars of … Read More
You have to be kidding me… if being a mom has taught me anything it is how to laugh in those moments where I could just cry. There I was cleaning up dinner when Oldest, Lilly declares ” I am full”.
