Oh, what their teachers must think!!

    Do you ever wonder what colorful stories your children might be telling their teachers? Have you ever been curious about the ‘interesting’ parts of our day-to-day lives that our kids might be sharing while they’re at school? Whenever I ponder this, I always flash back to one morning when I was volunteering in Cal’s classroom. As…

Apparently, I normally look like rubbish.

  I have a confession to make – I love yoga pants. And I mean really love them. Especially when I’m doing things around the house, they’re the perfect item of clothing to throw on. I spend the majority of my time running after three kids, preparing meal after meal, attempting to keep our house…
