I have been leaving my children in the capable care of amazing individuals since my oldest was 9-weeks-old. Both schools my children have attended are led by the most inspiring people, and they have had the most incredible teachers,...
It had been a hard day. I had been at home with my two daughters. My two-year-old, who was home from preschool sick, and my 4-month-infant. I had played with play-dough and colored outside with chalk to keep the...
