It has been 7 weeks since we parted ways with our helper (looking for a new one, help!) and to be honest, I haven’t fully adjusted to my new duties yet.

Because she loves the stage… we are giving this a try!
First day. Children’s Theater (3 – 6 yrs. old). Continue reading
Toothbrush – check! Bedtime story – check! Prayer – check! Lullaby and sweet kisses – check! We were right on time for bed hour.
