I’m a nap-time blogger, which means I cram as much work into my power hour as I possibly can, and when the first rosy-cheeked, disheveled-haired kid walks into the room I close my laptop for the day.
Just this past week, our baby has gone potty all by herself. Granted, she’s using a plastic imitation from Target (because she is way too short for the original john), but hey, we are one step closer to no diapers. A dream come true…
