Evie turned 4-years-old in September.  Her birthday wish list included a doll house, purple princess dress, and Barbie doll.  Purple dress- easy.  Barbie doll- easy.  Dollhouse- not so easy.  I knew the day was coming when Evie would ask for a dollhouse and I just wasn’t ready for it yet!  I have been on the […]

From Two to Three

From Two to Three

At least once a week I get asked, “Is going from two to three kids harder than going from one to two kids?”  I always start my answer with “in my case” because I know every mom has a different answer.  The hardest transition for me was going from one to two kids. I had Elijah when Evie was […]
