Now that my twins are in 1st grade, they are getting accustomed to the school schedule.

Let’s get right to it, I am taking a stand this year and ditching the holiday stress, deciding to instead focus on being thankful. With the holidays quickly approaching, stress levels are on the rise. As a kid, I never saw my parents stress over the holidays. Maybe they were great at hiding it or […]
