A long but perfect summer

The Wilson household has begun the countdown to the first day of school (12 days to go).  I for one am looking forward to getting back into a routine.  We are all getting restless with the triple digit temperatures that keeps us indoors.  Curls and Red are changing their minds daily on what they want… Continue reading A long but perfect summer

Might I propose a Target Daycare

Every morning I wake up and think, “Today will be a good day.” Last Friday must have laughed it's ass off when I woke up and said that. My hubby had left for the day and I got up, fed the kids, got them ready, and got myself ready. The morning was uneventful and I… Continue reading Might I propose a Target Daycare
