Here’s a funny story. It’s just like Goldilocks, if Goldilocks were a five year old boy who refused to wear pants. I’m feeling a little tired today. 38 weeks pregnant, enormous, mean, etc. It’s the last day of schoool, both boys were home by 12:30, I figured they could entertain each other if I laid [...]
