On a good day, parenting will test the integrity of your character. On a bad day, parenting will test your will to live. Parenting children with trauma histories will cause you to test the integrity of everything and everyone you thought you knew, for the rest of your life.

Home again

I'm TERRIBLE at remembering to take photos while we're away!  T.E.R.R.I.B.L.E.  I shall go down in history as the mother-that-never-photo-journaled-her-children's-lives.

*sigh*
It really is a horrible character flaw! lol

For now, all I've got for you is this:

To market, to market
to buy a fat hog.
Home again, home again,
jiggity jog!


Sissy gets her hair cut today - short, short, short PUH-LEASE! and then open house (ugh, anxiety attacks waiting to happen) and then a leisurely weekend with family until our big day on Monday.

Aside: we've never had our vacation the last week before school and really, it has been a brilliant accidental strategy that I fully intend to employ in the future. We had so much fun we didn't have time to dwell on the looming of a new school year. Highly recommended!

Wow, I thought I only suffered from CRP(can't remember photos). Glad I won't be the only one with a picture(or lask of haha) next to world's worst mom.
