About halfway though 2nd grade, Caleb started coming home from school stinking. Not like BO – more like sweaty socks. It drove me crazy because I no longer wanted to cuddle my little man. He was only in second grade! I started having him wear deodorant, but it didn’t do a whole lot because it […]

The Easter Bunny was nice enough to bring my son this cute pair of Dinosaur Jammies!  My Nathan LOVES dinosaurs – so I was super sad when I noticed he had a growth spurt and within 3 months they were high water on him. I hadn’t gotten around to packing them up and I’m so […]

My boys love pancakes!  BUT, I hate making the pancake mess every morning.  Especially, because we had to be out of our house around 8:30 am on the mornings that Nathan had preschool.  About a year ago, I was on the phone with a friend, and I was sort of complaining about my little dilemma. […]
