Cave, Dungeon, PlayHouse?

Our friends came over last weekend and brought my son a belated birthday gift. He was beyond excited that his birthday hadn’t completely ended. Totally unexpected.  He opened his present and was beyond delighted with what he found behind the wrapping paper. A Color Me Playhouse! I had never seen anything like it. Not only

Benefits of Playing Stay-At-Home Mom

Today I took the day to be a stay-at-home mom. Something I would love to do but unfortunately I need the weekly pay check. Anyway, I compiled a list of ten things I loved about today. 45 extra minutes of sleep. Not rushing Logan to school so I can get into work asap. Heart hammering

Toddlers Don’t Understand “Weekend”

My typical week day starts with my alarm going off at 5:45am and me pushing the snooze button till 6:05. I drag myself out one leg at a time wishing I could just call out sick, which I never do because I’m a stickler for rules and the guilt of calling out when I’m not
