Run Toddler Run

My toddler is a runner. He is not your average child runner he is a sprinter and extremely fast. He has two speeds: fast and turbo. I guess he channels his inner Lighting McQueen and lives by the mantra: Speed. I am speed. You can blink your eyes and he is already down the street. […]

The Bedtime Routine

See that baby up above?  Yeah, he’s sleeping all peaceful and perfect.  That’s not my baby.  My baby hates bedtime.  Which makes me hate our bedtime routine.  I think I hate bedtime more than any other part of the day.  It’s like the epic end to a three part battle, but oh wait, there’s actually […]
