I know that they could have used it though, they have been at each other's throats since 7:30 this morning. Rest time. I'm sure some of you are thinking "What she hasn't been having rest time!?" In my defense - for the last 5 years almost, I have had a baby and a napper, who [...]

Ella pulled another tooth yesterday! Look at that toothy grin and all that open space :)I thought that this part of parenting would gross me out - but I don't have to do a thing! Ella had gotten herself a piece of gum, and felt a root snap - next thing I knew it was [...]
