I think we, as parents, put alot of pressure on ourselves to make every event “the best EVER” for our kids. That was what I set out to do for my son’s 3rd birthday. Last night, my husband and I began to assemble the coolest present ever so that our son could find it in […]
My First Born Son, Tomorrow will be your 3rd birthday. These three years have gone by so quickly, yet I can’t remember what my life was like before you became a part of it. I always wanted to be a Mama; you have brought me joy since the day of your birth. When you were […]

I never liked that part either.He got […]
