Closing The Loop

We had no idea when we transitioned to the new daycare that not only would we find all of that but that we would find an extension of our family in the teachers and directors of the early learning center.

Expectations Are A Tricky Thing

So you know when people build things up so your expectations become huge and then you actually do/visit/see what was built up and it falls REALLY short of expectations?

Course that’s also when I started planning and prepping, everything from room color and decor to types of diapers (we loved those from The Honest Company–you can see their great products here), first foods, etc. The big stuff – what I later came to realize wasn’t really so big – was discussed later: the “birth plan” and nursing vs. formula. After numerous discussions, my husband and I decided that after...
