Sitter Circles

We have posted in the past about how important it is to know who you are hiring for your kids. I LOVE the idea of using a nanny referral agency because someone else is doing the hard work for you and then you can choose, from selected candidates, who you prefer. There is another option […]

O.k. so I was ready to kill the hubs when I am giving Cody a bath and he points to his chest and says, “Mommy, these are my boobies”! I was completely thrown! WHAT?! Cody was actually pointing to his nipples so I said “No honey, those are your nipples”. That was that. When the […]
