Today was a crazy day to say the least. The theme of the day was "Life is a highway!" I kissed the kids and hubby goodbye at 7:30am and left for work.

Today it is officially winter. I am shocked. I really am. I was really hoping that winter wouldn't come this year but it did and it's -15 with wind chill and those chilly winds are extremely strong. They are so strong that as I was taking 2.5 year old Miss M out of her carseat … Continue reading Tuesday in Toddler Town: a Bumped Head, a Man Cold and a bunch of Chaos in Between
