So, I’ve been sick. Probably the worst I can remember as an adult. Viral laryngitis doesn’t actually sound that bad and I’m sure if someone had told me they had been laid up by, of all things, laryngitis I would have told them to suck it up but I would have been WRONG. Incorrect, mistaken, […]
We were downstairs, trying to hook up a printer to the old computer, when he spoke up. “Mom, I wish I was adopted.” I was a little shocked. “Really? Why?” “I want to be Riley and Kyle’s brother.” “But then I wouldn’t be your Mommy. Don’t you want me to be your Mom?” Titus looked […]
