Last year I was going through a tough time with a 2 year old and a new born.

‘Houston, we have a problem…’ I was at the playground the other day with my 2 year old.

I watched him from a distance as his foot searched for the ground. After a…

I remember when we…

I remember a few days into being new parents, while our new born was crying my husband turned to me and asked, “What does he want?”, to which i replied, “I don’t know, I just met the kid!”.
