My mommy heart is a little heavy today. Bubba has been doing great in school and when I picked him up yesterday I was told he punched and kicked a girl in his class.

It's Monday! Yay?!?! Somehow my alarm didn't go off and I woke up 15 minutes before I had to be out the door, with two kids. It's like herding cats on a normal day with an hour to get ready.
