What To Do After You Yell At Your Kids
By | parenting, Parenting Tips | No Comments

We’ve all been there. You yelled at your child and now you and your child are both left feeling not so great. So what do you do next?

By | parenting | One Comment

One of our favorite Christmas traditions is getting a new Christmas books for the girls each year. Hazel is eagerly awaiting the day we bring down our Christmas books this year, and I know both girls will be super excited to get a brand new, never read before, Christmas book!
