Goodness, I’m exhausted!

So this week’s blog goes out to all those moms of more than one child who are close in age… My daughter-in-law and my two grandchildren (age 4 and almost 3) were in a car accident Memorial Day weekend.  The kids seem fine, but her back is pretty messed up and she’s on some major…

Healthy vs. Inexpensive

It went something like this… Kids: Can we get these? Mom: No, I think we’ll go across the street and get some chicken nuggets. Kids: But we want these, and they’re…
