My child prayed for my legs. He was almost 3 and was so concerned about them being exposed to sunlight that he actually prayed about it. If that doesn't scream, I never bare my legs, I don't know what does. He was curious why I was going in the backyard to play in my underwear.… Continue reading Dear Summer, I’m Ready
Let's talk playdates. Once upon a time, think way back to when your baby was actually a baby...playdates were for us.
