We’re a couple weeks into the school year and getting back into a new routine. This years a little different for us since both my kiddos need to be dressed and out the door first thing in the morning. Last year, if need be, I could take my daughter, Mahlia, in her Jammie’s for Paxton’s drop off. But this year…both kids need to be dressed, fed, teeth brushed, bags packed and out the door.

Then you finally get to fill the room with the actual crib and changing table! Before you know it, you have so much baby crap that it becomes overwhelming! So what do you do with it all when they’ve out grown it and your pretty sure you won’t be needing it again?
Before I can go any further on this site I need to talk about someone that has instilled the passion for creativity in me, one of the most incredible women I know, my Mom.
