I’ve Made A Terrible Mistake……

When my oldest was born I was all like….”Yeah yeah yeah…..I got this. I won’t talk to her like she’s a baby, I won’t homeschool her. I won’t spoil her. I won’t blah blah blah…”. Then Lex was born and I was  all like “OH MY GOD HE IS NEVER LEAVING MY SIDE!!!!” See what…

A Planking Spanking

When Normie challenged me to the 30 Day Plank Challenge…I thought it would be easy.
