I was at the pool this weekend and started talking to a woman holding an infant next to me. She asked me if he was my first and I told her how he was actually my second. I asked her the same.

She had a great haircut, cute bathing suit, and didn’t look frazzled in the least. How was that possible? How could she… Continue

I think we all could be really good jugglers if we practiced...but sometimes its really really hard to balance everything. For example how much time you spend with each child. Even though I have one child of my own, as a child care provider I still need to learn how to balance that time with each child successfully, balance the chores and of course my blog and product review hobby....… Continue
