Baby Wearing 101

Several years ago I wrote a couple of posts about baby wearing. Both Teacher and I wore each of our babies, and several of our grand-babies too. Although my posts fulfilled their purpose – to support baby wearing – they weren’t very helpful for new parents who wanted to learn…

Teacher is one of those people who can fall asleep almost anywhere, anytime. And he’s not the only one. Me not so much. I’ve always had a hard time falling asleep, even when I was a kid. Sometimes I know there’s something on my mind, like planning an anniversary party,…

I took Friday off to prepare for the Anniversary Picnic. First order of business – getting my hair touched up! I’d gotten it done about 5 weeks ago and the color still looked fantastic, if you didn’t count the half inch of white and brown roots peeking out. My stylist…
