Kim talks about her struggles with Brielle.

on May 8, 2013

My first priority is my children, and when Brielle's grades were failing, I made it a big, big deal! I always told my girls growing up that I would not baby them through life, and no matter how blessed they are financially, they have to get an education! If it’s one thing my parents did right, it was teaching me to have a good work ethic, and I plan on doing the same with my kids!

Since Brielle is mature enough to make MOST of her own decisions, Kroy and I decided to have her hire her own tutor to see if she was serious about getting her grades up. So in walks Phillip... It didn't surprise me that she found a good-looking senior who drives to help her out. But whatever works, works!

Since the day Kroy and I got married, he always talked about adopting Brielle and Ariana. Their biological father hasn't played much of a role in their lives, and Kroy has been that father figure for the last couple of years. Since we're married, the girls adore him and accept Kroy as their dad, so it was only natural for this to take place. It takes a real man to step up and accept two children as his own the way Kroy has! I am so lucky!
