Last weekend we set Isla up in a 'big kid bed' which matches 'big kid school'. This is a good thing. Bed time stories happen in her room now.

The last time the fam and I went to NY, Isla turned six months old on the trip. One of my 'things' has been to push for plan another trip before she goes to 'big school' in August. Well.

She is, I'm not. Bookmarks or random pieces of paper? Train tickets. And no dog-eared pages. Can you just … Continue reading Book Lover’s Tag Thing
