NEWSFLASH TO THE COMMON CORE POWERS THAT BE....look at me...I turned out just fine without common core. Ok, that might be up for debate depending on who you ask, but you get what I mean.
My house was a mess and nobody had clean socks. Something had to give. I weighed my options. On the one hand I adored my kids, but they were so needy, smelled like play-doh, and had crusty fishy crackers in their hair.
Have you ever had your child break out in a rash and you take them to the doctor to find out what it is? What's the first thing the doctor asks....."have you changed your laundry detergent, changed your shampoo or soap, tried new lotions, added any new foods to their diets"?My thought process is just that; WHAT HAS CHANGED? My boy has a massive rash and it's called Fortnite!
