The boy is normally up to all sorts, amusing us all with his crazy antics but my god this week has been a long one. I know he’s super frustrated trying to communicate with us but my head hurts.

*No Frankie’s were harmed in the making of the cover photo. I attempted a family photo by the tree with all three kids on Xmas Eve. He wanted a selfie.

  1. I loved this post. Apologies but it made me laugh so hard, but I can relate to it all. They have a meltdown over the simplest of things or over nothing at all. Non issues. Here’s hoping for a better week ladies!
