Growing up can be rough! When I listen to my brothers speak about their childhood and compare it to others… I realized we may not have had the best of childhoods or the best of circumstances compared to others… but it is mine and it helped me become the person I am today.
Being the oldest child of four I saw the things my dad went through… and the choices he had to make as a single dad of 4 kids, while serving in the military trying to keep things together.

Next time, just take over my body. I promise it will be a lot easier for both of us.
Apparently this whole ordeal was the baby’s way of knife-handing me instructions about what he or she does not like… meat is a no-no… fruit and veggies are good for you. < Seriously if this is any indication, then I predict this kid has a lot of… *ahem* personality… >
