Big Kid Milestones — Goodbye, Baby Teeth!

I usually meet Lil’ CB’s milestones with excitement and awe…take for example, the latest milestones of beginning to read and write; it’s so fun to see!

What’s in Our Library Bag

Lil’ CB and I visit the public library regularly every 2-3 weeks. It’s one of our favorite things to do together and we usually spend an hour or so browsing and choosing books to take home. On each visit, we usually end up with between 20-25 books. Some are hits, others are misses, but all […]

This season, I’m re-wearing some of my favorites from last year, but I’ve also added a few new pieces […]


18 Children’s Books With Diverse Characters

Hive, I’m not going to lie. My heart has been so heavy and broken lately over the events surrounding the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. I’m not going to write a long post about it because I don’t believe this is the place to do so, but I will say that what saddens […]
