    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...

    I am a parent, but more importantly,

    I a mom. A mom who is there for my kids, and would do anything for them. Anyone can be a parent, and can help make a child, but it really takes a special person to be a mom. It's not an easy job, but I absolutely adore it. Being a mom automatically makes me a teacher, a chef, a...
