Her face scrunched as she expelled all the contents of her lungs. Her mouth wide, tears in her eyes, and the hanging, pink epiglottis danced violently at the back of her throat. Her stance said she was ready for war, but my mind said I was too as it raged and raced at the child … Continue reading IG Story Challenge – Karma Wins. I am my child’s mother.
I would lament on the fact that the year all but raced away, but I think we're all very aware of it already. The past year has been amazing.

She is not here to play bruh. Talking She is talking. Well, as clearly as a child of … Continue reading Siobhán Update – 18 (20) Months Old
