MomLife: Of Course I Keep ALL Your Artwork!

A kid in school (or daycare) means lots of artwork. From hand print turkeys to pages of scribbles, it can be quite a lot of stuff to save. I had been quietly slipping about half of it into the trash until the day my son caught me in a typical parental fib and discovered I … Continue reading MomLife: Of Course I Keep ALL Your Artwork!

Happy New Year! Changes to Sponsored Posts in 2019

I know it's only New Year's Eve, but I haven't written on here since Christmas so thought I would stop by and drop a little Happy New Year. Also, I woke up before my son today so a mom has to steal that time when she can. I only started this blog about six months … Continue reading Happy New Year! Changes to Sponsored Posts in 2019
