Power Outage

Today’s post is a bit different and really long. I don’t want to ruin the surprise but the power was out all day (shoot, did I just ruin it?) so I wrote today’s post by hand (what horror). Below are… «more»

Doctor’s Appointment

Today the kids went to the doctor and got a clean bill of health and a couple of shots. They met all the milestones on the Nippissing Developmental Milestone Checklist (for 15 months). As previously mentioned, I was most interested… «more»
