Today marked the first day my girls have been back in school in over a week!  We were getting desperate, people.  Snowmageddon 2015 hit Lexington last week and it didn’t let up until it had poured nearly 15 inches of snow + sleet and ice.  I know for all you Bostonians and Northern folk this…

Last week the hubs was away.  Let me just say…parenthood is not meant to be a one person job, people!  I want to hand it to those moms and dads out there who are at it by themselves or have spouses that have to work all the time.  Parenthood has made me more exhausted, joyful, tearful,…
