by jessicaturner on January 27, 2016

A few weeks ago I lost it. I was in Elias’s room and his bottom dresser drawer was open. He was pushing on it in such a way that it was straining the whole drawer. I asked him to stop. He did it again, the track cracked and the drawer dropped to the floor. “Why […]

by jessicaturner on January 25, 2016

by jessicaturner on January 5, 2016
