words totally jumbled by potty mouthed toddlers

The words butchered by kids just keep on coming! Last week’s post about toddlers adorably and totally mangling words had a great response.

Like the family who were considering calling their unborn son Hunter,Read more

Our biggest lad started Kindergarten this year. He was excited about it and so was I! To mark the beginning of his formal education, we, like all parents, took some happy snaps of his first day.

Life changes when you have kids, in so many unpredictable ways! I’d never have predicted how utterly awful my driving would become.

Anyone else have battles getting their kids dressed? Here’s how we currently roll. The littlest lad is the most compliant, yet even he wriggles around and squawks a bit.

The other parent in our house was going about his business unaware of the happenings around him. You know whatRead more
