Alright, I’m in the midst of my January doldrums. It’s too cold and I don’t wanna – all the things. I was about to ask if anyone else gets this way in the winter but then I realized that probably most people feel this way. It’s cold out, lots of days are dreary and cloudy, […]

Sitter sessions are my favorite. (Okay, I have lots of favorites, don’t go taking me literally – my other blogs will contradict me.) Sitter sessions really are ones that I look forward to for a bunch of reasons, the highlight of which is no stranger danger here! So…what do I like about baby sitter sessions? […]
