Oh, hello daughter of mine. Yes, I did say that. Hello, daughter of mine. Remember that? That time I spent 50 hours in labor with you? That time I spent ten months pregnant with you? Sacrificing my body, hair, feet, and face for you? Yes, face. What do you think hormones do? I’m so proud […]
Hello, Ladies and Gents. Look at this handsome man: That’s my husband. I know what you’re thinking– who is that good looking woman next to him? Just kidding. I know everyone’s thinking how amazingly attractive he is. Not to rub it in, but he’s an even more amazing father and husband. You see, my husband […]
