The kids are gone for two weeks – and Todd’s still at work – so Cooper’s drinking and cooking Blue Apron…and just rambling about whatever mess enters my mind. Also, gushing about The Underground Railroad, Oprah’s newest Book Club pick.
On this episode of #CoopedUp…Lord only knows! My kids took over and my (not so) inner stage mom came out. Plentiful “y’alls” guaranteed.
