Dear Sunshine Girl, I can’t believe it’s been three whole years since we welcomed you into our world. Being your Mama is the most fun and challenging thing I’ve done with my life so far- and I am so grateful you choose Daddy and I to raise you. This year has been a big one Read more ..

Forgive my brief absence. Everyday I’m hopeful that I’ll be delivering this baby, so I sit really still and forget to do thinks like send along pictures of Sunshine’s first day of school. You’ll be happy to know that while the night before and hours leading up to her departure I cried like a baby, Read more ..

“The world slows down/ but my heart beats fast right now/ I know this is the part where the end starts/ I hate this part right here.” Tomorrow this little lady starts nursery school. As I warned you a few weeks ago, the tears have already started. Never mind that she was so difficult last Read more ..

  In two weeks my Sunshine Girl starts nursery school. I have discussed this decision with my close friends over and over trying to understand if this is actually necessary.  It still seems a bit unnecessary- but I trust that when I am too weak to make the right decision they will push me forward Read more ..
