My mind is saying ouch in three different languages. The arms go in the air like if I raise them higher, I’ll weigh less.

My youngest child has been, uhm shall we say, a challenge. The child is doing things I never imagined were possible. Honestly he has been in a 6 month phase that made me consider writing a letter to Dr. Phil. In desperation I fasted. Now, because I’m a […]
