    First Real Spanking.

    MAN did it break my heart. Seriously. I spent all day yesterday repeating that my kids need to listen to me and mommy. Lightheartedly, fiercely, all day, the same thing: LISTEN TO WHAT YOU'RE TOLD. Because they don't. They listen to ME, because I'm a fairly big dude, and...

    Love of a Parent The love of a parent is

    immeasurable. So much so, that it could be said that a child is the personification of a parent’s love. The love is so strong, that should it be taken, we may not survive without it… A love so strong that, should it be lost, so too would a part of our very soul… A love...
