I think something is wrong with my calendar. It seems as though we’re in the last week of August, summer is coming to an end and school starts next week. It went way too fast. I had ideas for the summer, things I would be doing with the extra time we’d have everyday and most … More What Happened to Summer?
As you know from a previous post, “Mom…Mom….Mama….Mommy,” we waited a long time for ‘J’ to say Mommy and Daddy. From the time he was 1.5, he was obsessed with letters.
