  2. Thanks Jasmine! I'm just trying to be the best wife and mommy I can be. It's not easy. I love your new Brokins site...the name is cool too, I know it's just your names combined, but you know we are all human, and Broken, and being Mommies makes that so much more evident. Well, for me at least!
