It can sometimes be easy to wonder what my life might have been like without kids. Watching Chelsea Handler videos on Instagram makes me think I’d be sleeping till noon, day drinking and booking trips to Europe every month....
"School's out for summer, No more teachers, no more books," The kids all shout with glee! The sun is shining, The heavy coats are put away. Flip flops serve as footwear, And swimming pools serve as bathtubs. Summer is great fun, Summer is lazy. Summer is no bedtimes, Summer...
