Thrifting for Baby!

When my son was born I will be honest, I didn't really think too much about the cost of items because we had so many generous family and friends who bought us just about everything we needed.  As my son grew older however I started to realize how crazy expensive kids are. Now that I … Continue reading Thrifting for Baby!

I'm so convinced that my kid is going to be the kid that rally's up all the other kids at school to do things…which are not always good things…majority of … Continue reading Voice Level 100
