Teething Bling

Mia has yet to cut her first tooth, but no matter if it is my hair, her brother’s drum stick, or jewelry of any sort, it immediately goes into her mouth. I met the owner of Another Feather’s Etsy shop this weekend.

I may have gotten carried away this morning with wedding fantasies. Granted, I am married and have already had the only wedding I ever care to, but I have several friends planning their weddings right now, and, well, what can I say?

Well, to add to my plight, my washing machine has been on the fritz for two weeks which means no warm sock….well, no clean warm socks. Brrr!

I get caught in the trap of comparing my kids and their development just as much as the next mom. My son has barely rounded age 2, and I’m already scoping out pre-school curriculum. Last week, I actually pulled out the States and Capitals flash cards and he looked at me like, “Seriously? Keep this up and I’ll have plenty to tell the therapist one day.” Maybe your toddler...
