Usually when I feel myself losing my schmidt as a mom, it's because both kids are pushing me to the brink in a very methodical but lightning fast way. Things were going great two, maybe three minutes before and then the...
My two oldest boys are two and half years apart and are truly the best of friends. The kind of friends who disagree much of the time and generally have a legit smack down each day. I shared this with...
Please don’t take this the wrong way, but I don’t like your children. It’s nothing personal. I’m sure they’re really sweet, cute kids; it’s just that the only children I really like are my own. And even that’s true only...
