Like when your little one licks the dog, or eats something off the floor totally disregarding the 5 second rule, or takes to fingerpainting on your walls with “organic” materials.

A Working Mom’s Vacation

First thing’s first – let me define “working mom” here — I work full-time outside of the home and my spouse is a stay-at-home (yes, working) dad. This post, and my vacation last week, comes from that point of view- perhaps some of you will relate… A much-needed vacation is always appreciated, no matter if [...]
