What Happens When Your Puppy Wants to Help Sweep

My Right Hand Baby {Video}

I have never, ever had a baby this attached to me so much. It’s almost… foreign to me, the changes between this child and […]

It’s never a dull moment in this house. The kids are always up to something hilarious and worth recording.
