A couple weeks ago mister man moved to his “big boy bed”. The transition went amazingly well. We talked it up for a week or so, telling him about all of his friends that are in twin size beds now, so he was prepped. Then one afternoon we all went to the mattress store and [...]

happy birthday eli!! a year in review…

As I’m sitting here writing this tonight I’m remembering that exactly 1 year ago to the minute I was running around the house like a madman throwing things in the car while this was going on upstairs.
