A mother-daughter day

The importance of doing nuthin

Don't shelve their 'can-do' attitude, it'll come in handy someday

I asked my daughter if she could help me move a shelving unit into the house. I had gotten one from my mom and knew I could never move it by myself. It was awkward and tall.

My son's advancement to first grade means both my children have homework most nights. And, people, I am telling you now, I am having trouble.
