Let me tell you a story of love, fur babies, children, and cat shit.


My mother, God bless her and please let her live for another thirty years, took our three-year-old for a sleepover last night with two of his young cousins. The little man was so excited he danced around the room, and my three-year-old was pretty jazzed too. ;) 


I bragged about this turn of events all day from my workout class a...
