The Hartley Hooligans

I am a real-life, damn near Snow F’ing White (super pale AND gifted at dwarf wrangling) from Kansas who blogs regularly about my kids’ antics, my husband’s sketchy facial hair, and shitting myself.  When I'm not cleaning up doggy snot & random bodily fluids (from the kids, pervs!), I find time to share about my unique life raising a typical child & two profoundly disabled children, laughing all the way.

From all of us Hartley Hooligans, we wish you the happiest of holidays.xo ...more
