At 21 months, Lincoln and Keira are now in the 90th percentile for height, so they can reach almost every surface in the house. And if they can’t reach it on their own, they can move and climb on top of a chair to get to it. ...more
Great idea, Krysta! I should totally create a YL! I bet most of my yelling would be around the ...more

Why It's Impossible To Be On Time When You Have Children

I am, by nature, an extremely punctual human being. Being late stresses me out, and can actually ruin my day. Being on time isn’t just something I prefer, it’s something that MEANS SOMETHING TO ME. ...more
