Eathen, age 7 Some of the best parts about being a parent is witnessing the honesty, the innocence and the down right hilarious statements that come from our children's mouths. They often happen in times that may leave us a tad embarrassed, or in moments when we as parents really needed to laugh...or at quiet... Continue Reading →
Be patient for the man that understands and expects for your children to come first. Wait for the man that grabs your hand and slow dances with you in the kitchen, to music he sings or hums. Invest in the man that never questions your worth, and makes time for you without you requesting... Continue Reading →
