So last night we took the boys to hear some good old fashioned story telling in the park. No props, no sound effects. I wasn’t sure how much of it Aidan would absorb, but he did repeat a tiny bit of story to me while we were there, so maybe he did. He certainly exceeded [...]
This past week I’ve been quite the busy bee. I’ve spent much of my time making sure that my two sweet boys would have everything they needed to be the best little gnome and best little mushroom that they could possibly be.
