FRI-YAY

It’s Friday! I am a little more excited today than other weekends because we are going to Disney Land as a family for the weekend! I went alone with Dax on his birthday.

One of the best toddler inventions are the baby foods in pouches. I can…

Anxiety

I write this post in hopes that any others out there can either help or not feel alone. Lately I get these dark overwhelming feelings like my child is going to be taken from me. I see on the news over and over about the many kidnappings, kids sold into sex slavery, murders, etc. Can there be an etc? Seems sick doesn’t it? I feel this news is more prominent than ever. While putting Dax down for his nap, I laid with him in…
