• Turning A Frown Upside Down

     My laptop is taking a break, and part of me was thinking of doing the same from my blog after a tiny incident that turned out to be huge.  Last week while having dinner with my little guy, I had this genius idea to take my computer to the dining table to work on upcoming blog posts and scheduling social posts.

But that’s why I take deep breaths from time to time and remind myself of these three things: 1. He’s still learning. 2. He’s going to annoy you just as much as you annoyed your mom. 3.
