It’s weird being human…

My daughter (my youngest, my baby!) turned 7 years old yesterday. Allow me to be a little nostalgic… She’s had a tremendous amount of growth in the last year – she can read a chapter book, tie her own shoes, get herself dressed. She is incredibly independent and self-sufficient. She knows what she wants, and she will do what it takes to make that happen! (Even if that means deceiving her parents…) Continue reading

Yet another work deadline was completed yesterday. It was draining – emotionally, mentally. I was dead tired, desperate for a mental break and more than 4 hours of sleep.
