Why I Love Washing My Son’s Dirty Clothes

When my Eldest Little Man was younger, he was the “Move First, Think Second” kind of kid – as most little kids are.  And some big kids, come to think of it.  But anyway… Eldest Little Man was wild, energetic and loud. His imagination knew no boundaries.  He always had ripped knees, holey shoes and […]

SOME DAYS JUST SUCK

Some days, I love being a mama. My eldest little man uses his manners without being asked, brings me cups of coffee (or wine on really good days) and is kind and helpful with his younger brother.  Littlest man is delightful and happy, and content playing independently for a while in between feeds, sleeps and […]
