Here’s the deal. I am a what-you-see-is-what-you-get person. I don’t hide the bad: I roll it right on out there. Everyone who knows me, knows my crap. The good, the bad, the ugly, the fantastic, the insane, the beautiful, the gross and the crazy that is my life. I am who I am. And my […]
By Day 3, they started to come around. They woke up happy and I smugly thought to myself, “Pat on the back mom, they needed this as much as you did. Way to stand your ground.”
