Preschool Saves Lives

February 2, 2016

This kid slays me. After a rough bedtime with him last night, we woke up to a fresh start this morning. I was in such a good mood and then the next two hours became full on mommy/preschooler warfare! He’s kind of like Buddy the Elf when he has to push every single button on […]
