My four year old has three two more days of preschool before summer strikes.

I still haven’t registered him for PreK. Registration was in February.

He’s not signed up for any summer activities.

My 5 month old still doesn’t nap.

My four year old definitely doesn’t nap.

Time to pick a preK.

Time to admit that my youngest may never nap well. That I probably need childcare for him too.

Time to publish the giant backlog of posts I have because I never have “enough time” {<– ha} to put the finishing touches on them.

Or maybe I’ll just blissfully keep my head buried in the proverbial sand and try my hardest to keep my babies my babies just a little bit longer.

7 Things I Learned from a Meal Delivery Service {Home Chef}

The doorbell rang as I was putting the baby down for a nap {or rather I should say trying to put the baby down for a nap}. My four year old leapt up off the floor of the nursery {where he was trying and failing to be quiet for the fifth time that day} and […]
