Why Are School Districts  Against Us?

Why Are School Districts Against Us?

Seriously, enrolled my 7 yr old daughter in school today and all is looking good so far. A good teacher to start and the process to get everything paid for, signed, etc., was super easy. Then it comes to Birkley. I receive a phone call […]

Special Living Today Getting a Makeover

Special Living Today Getting a Makeover

We want to become your place for finding out about new products invented by moms like you and me or products currently out there that we have never heard of before. Want us to be able to share what we have found because I find it’s the little things that take sooooo long to find and search for. Sometimes we don’t have time to be inventors every day of our life nor do we want to (we want to play too) and it makes our life that much easier if there’s a place that can help us find the answer a little quicker. Maybe you have made something for your child that could help someone else…how fun if we could make that happen.

No More Live-in Nanny

So we tried but just couldn’t do it. Our nanny was here for two months so feel we gave it a good shot but just didn’t work for us. For one, I just couldn’t get used to the fact that someone was living downstairs (finished basement). Two, she did great with Birkley and my 2 year old son, but my 7 year old daughter just did not warm up to her. My oldest is a lot more sensitive so needed a warmer person I think. Three, just wasn’t what I imagined.

Just wanted to bring you up to speed. She left right before xmas and I’m just behind. Someday we’ll figure it out. I hope:)

Hunting for Non-slip Ideas for Bathing
