I have always been a lover of books. New books. Old books. Fiction. Non-fiction. No matter what the book was about I was willing to read it.

Oh the ideas and thoughts are endless. But once momma pulls out their hand puppets, they know exactly what we should do! A puppet show!! So we… Read More

There are not many times where the girls play together in peace. There are many attempts of interaction but those are quickly squashed by yelling, screaming, and fighting. So it is always such a beautiful sight to see when both girls decide to play with no quarrels! This time they decided to play dress-up. They… Read More

There is nothing more fun then potty training. (Insert pause for extreme laughter). This past month Madelyn has begun the adventure of switching from baby to big girl.
