Last Sunday, we had just finished lunch, and I was practicing writing letters with my son at the kitchen table, when my husband called my name from the couch. I turned to look at him and with watering eyes he could only whisper, “It’s the same pain. I think we have to go to the hospital.“

People would often comment “well at least it’s your fourth baby and not your first” as if that would make…Continue

They display different animals, share fun facts and information about the animals and allow you to touch some of the animals. At one point during the show they invited…Continue
