Kindergarten: Zara’s School Supply Haul

Why We Won’t Do Sleepovers

Zavi and the Terrible Twos: Is This It or Nah?

The terrible twos are here. It feels like a ton of bricks hit our home. It’s not a myth. I was one of those people. I thought things like the “middle child syndrome” and the “terrible twos” were myths. It’s no myth. It’s real. Zavier turns 3 in August. That’s roughly just three months away….
