Posted by Jennifer under Faith, Parenting (No Respond)

Credit @Doug88888 “You’re a good mama”. I hear that every so often from seniors at our church.

Posted by Jennifer under Faith, Parenting (2 Responds)

Chloe reading to us. This morning we had medical appointments to get to. I should have gotten our things ready the night before but I didn’t. {Isn’t that often the case?!?} The morning was a little rushed and hairy.
