As we paraded into the building to watch his brother's ending ceremony for this basketball season, his fit grew exponentially in intensity.

I minor miracle…

So, Lion Cub has always been a rough sleeper. Bed time for the last few months has literally been the bane of my existence due to his crazy screaming and the hour or more I would have to sit down by his room and deal with his constant questions and getting out of the bed…. Read more…
