A Letter to (my) Teen Daughters

5 Tips for a Tear-Free Daycare Drop-Off

Oh the dreaded daycare drop off. One minute, they’re just little babies who are fine being loved on by whoever is providing their food. The next, they are toddlers with personalities and preferences who have learned how to say, “No!”  I love this stage. My little is learning new words and how to do new […]
