By Guest Blogger Kelly Guzenhauser and originally posted on Triad Moms on Main I have one of THOSE kids…one who hates the great outdoors.

Mother ‘Hood

By Coach Debbie Today I have broken up 18 fights and it’s barely noon on a Saturday. Breakfast was met with an “Is this it?!” and lunch had the response of “Yuck, I don’t want this.”       My house looks like I was robbed. Silence is a sound I miss almost as much as sleep. Violence seems to be the norm ... Read More »
