As I have admitted numerous times in this blog, being a parent is the hardest journey I have ever been on. And, about 87% of the time, I feel like I am completely failing at it. But every once in a while, one of my children will do something that knocks me into that 13% … Continue reading Park Friends
With Evie beginning to talk more, Lee has taken it upon himself to start monologuing. Actual monologuing. He will spout out full paragraphs at a time without pausing long enough at any point for you to answer or respond. Here are a few examples.. Today is Friday, which means yesterday was Thursday, which means yesterday … Continue reading Ramblings of a 4 year old

It literally seems as if they are due for one or two shots every three months from the time your child is born until they hit 2. Not that I'm … Continue reading 15 months and fabulous
