IMG_8424

I can’t front. There are times when I fantasize about being a stay-home-mom. How hard can it be? All you have to do is feed them, change their diapers, and put them down for nap time. You also have to make sure they don’t hurt themselves or destroy the house. Think that’s easy? Think again! […]

IMG_2491

When I took my daughter to the movies for the first time, running was the last thing I thought she’d ever do. But, that’s exactly what she did. I didn’t tell her where we were going or what we’d be doing. She loves surprises, and that’s exactly what I told her – “It’s a surprise!” […]
