I spent two hours last night looking at preschools for our 3yo Toddler. Scary, right? YES! I swear it was just last week that I spent two hours pushing her out. Such a cliché to say they grow up so fast, but it's so true. Soon enough she'll be taking a bus (by herself!) to … Continue reading I’m Not Letting You Go, Okay Kids?
We started bringing Toddler to Sunday School in September. It starts at 9am.... During the weekday, 9am is when Baby goes down for her first nap ... and Toddler isn't even dressed yet.
