But he might as well be part of a set of triplets the way he acts at times. One minute loving, sweet and the cutest kid … More It’s A Hard Knock Life!
After a slightly longer than usual week where TO tested positive and then negative for Covid; we are back to enjoying family time around the dining table. And it feels great!
