Sensitivity Presentation for Middle Schoolers

21 Day Fix Meals: Days 5 & 6 (Being Sick While Doing the Fix)

So my last two days are up late because my house got hit hard with a cold/virus.  Obviously as the mom of the household I was still watching our toddler, giving him a bath, waking up and feeding him, and all the other tasks that come with having a kid that don’t stop because you…
