Read my story about the day I threw banana bread. And another story about the day I screamed over split bubbles…

I inherited my hot temper from my dad. When I had kids, my temper got worse. When you lose your temper, you don’t feel like yourself. I’m a loving, hard-working mom. Sometimes those out-of-control moments are hard to admit and even harder to talk about.

But I’m breaking the silence.
