Toddler Tuesday: The Goldfish Dilemma.
Can we talk about Goldfish crackers for a sec? This is a safe environment, right? While I’m wildly prepared for most circumstances, I have not gotten into the habit of having (specifically) Goldfish crackers in my diaper bag, car, house, purse, office etc. for “just in case” and this is something that I am regretting … Continue reading Toddler Tuesday: The Goldfish Dilemma.
Highway Rest Stops.

I am sitting in the beautiful and spacious apartment we have rented for the month in a small village in Tuscany.

I remember … Continue reading Kitchen’s closed.
