Facebook Perfect Lives

I started out my morning pretty happy.  I got snuggles from my toddler, my oldest came in to say good morning and get a hug.  Then my Dude came in and explained to me that he “didn’t drop it, there was just too much gravity.”  He never did explain to me what exactly he didn’t…
