My First DIY Project And I Survived!

Most Mom blogs are filled with home decor, beauty, recipes and the pics always look like they live this fabulous well put together life.  My blog is so not that.  LOL.

Casey is a special needs child and would never do what my friend's kids did or it would take him a hell of a lot longer to do them.  He still can't ride a bicycle, but he can make us laugh.
