Less Than 72hrs in Her Shoes

First, whoever says the place of a woman is in the kitchen seriously needs a rethink.  I won’t say more! Over the weekend I had to “babysit” an 8-year-old going to 9- Friday through Sunday. You know what that means? Let me tell you. It means I must do the dishes, bath him, prepare breakfast, […]
