One of the most intimidating things I have ever done was order sushi for the first time. I remember sitting at the table at my favorite Chinese restaurant and internally debating if I really wanted to attempt it or not. What if I didn’t order it correctly? What if I didn’t like it? What if I […]

So, we are finally at a point in my daughter’s life where, at a little over 2 years old, she is very close to being ready to tackle potty training. I kinda cant believe we are at this point. I’ve been missing the days of having a little tiny peanut, dependent on everything. Don’t get […]
