Everyday is the same day! AH! Help me, I just feel like I’m stuck in a cycle of neverending poopy diapers.
I used to tell my husband that I actually know what it’s like to live in the old movie Groundhog Day. Do you know of this movie? Read More
The attack on mom and the home is one of the most serious discussions that is rarely had. When it is you and them (the kids) alone during the day you are in a spiritual war that not only knocks the wind out of your sails mentally but also physically.
