Before kids I always had the kind of house that was full of glass, modern, the type that make you not want to sit on the furniture 😄😄 after kids you gotta have better child proof furniture as possible, thought it was ok to play like this and I don’t even like balls in the house… I should have kept it that way. Watch, Swipe, and see what happened on our Sunday Fun Day. Smh. @jackielong (you still my MCM though).
“You have never missed any of Azari’s games, knowing his father isn’t alive, you have stepped in and changed his life for the better by being a real man he can learn from. You color with Amani, carry her when she doesn’t want to walk, and you are her biggest hype man during gymnastics. You take them to school so I can sleep in,” one of her captions read on Instagram.
Will we hear wedding bells soon? We’ll have to wait and watch!
