It all makes so much sense now.


Today is a great day!!!


Happy NEW year!!! Thank goodness it’s here! Partied it up playing Super Mario Monopoly, making home made pizza and confetti 🎊.

Last year sucked in every way. Having a social only child in a pandemic has been so challenging and emotionally took its toll on all. We need some in person off computer social enter action in 2021! (Once it’s safe). May this new year bring lots of in person hugs, gatherings and happiness! Looking forward to change more than ever.

• Bourbon bbq kettle chips
• hard boiled egg

I still don’t understand how he can eat so much in one day?

Craving for more!

What a day! The anxiety is overwhelming.

I hope you all voted for the best of our future! 💙 Our kids need a prejudice free, positive, forward thinking country. Not a country that digresses backwards from all our progress.

Soon this generation of kids will be making a difference no matter which way the wind blows today. And when they do, I hope you all are ready for it! Progress and hope for our future! 💙

Super Mario hat to the rescue! We are all 💙💙!
