I have long known that we are very similar, my oldest and I, but I also knew that there was a major difference in our personalities I just didn't know exactly how to categorize it. This is of course very funny if you know my 'personality type'! *chuckle* I am INTJ (introverted, intuitive, thinking, judging) He … Continue reading Meet my oldest.
... on your face! I'm quite certain my oldest, 'A' is on drugs. He's not even trying to hide it now, he does it in his room in the middle of the day. It used to be when he went out with friends, not that I saw but I'm not stupid. After that it was … Continue reading One step forward, two steps ….
After much time and much patience W (the youngest) came up and asked if he could go to the show with friends! He even said that if we couldn't give him a ride out he could get one with his buddy and family! Wow, seriously folks, wow! This is great news. He missed our family … Continue reading We did it!!

The boys were to be in school and I would have … Continue reading I will not go quietly!
Remember when I posted about genius kids making the most stupid mistakes? LoL Yeah, it's totally like that! Let's just say that if this was April 2018 he would be in jail right about now. Cripes!! See my kid(s) are very smart and one thing commonly found in intelligent people is a very dark and … Continue reading OH, my child!

Some days I wish I wasn't the one, the only one who had to see and deal with the things going on around here. Most of the 'issues' happen when I'm here alone with the boys, I'm the one who sees and hears the way they act and react to things, I'm the one who … Continue reading This never ending ride, it’s making me feel uncertain!
