In Anticipation of My “Forget These Kids” Weekend

Old suitcases  stack, mostly leather, retro, travel

I am a bad mother. I curse around my kids. I don’t force them to eat vegetables. I encourage showers, but if they don’t stink, I don’t care. I told them we would get a dog and they could pick it out. Turned out I lied. We got the dog, but I picked her out. Her name is Hope.
