Just sometimes

Your children
Is like

To
A brick wall

  7. Thanks to everyone for coming over.

    I was once the brick wall!

    I wanted to include my husband but thought better of it! The word children 'rang' better too! That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!!

  11. OOh, that is so true! LOL. Well, I'll have you know dera Bee, I was never a brick wall actually! My darling children aren't too much either...my daughter being the exception now and then, but as with brick walls as they age, cracks do appear! :) Good cracks that is.
