Why I haven't been writing ...

I've gotten a job writing for Crunchy Moms.  So, any time I would have spent writing here has been put into writing over there.  I must admit that I also haven't been doing as many crafts and such with the kids, so there hasn't been as much to write about!  Even though Natalie has been in school since September, we are still fine tuning our routines here.  Add to that taking a course on child abuse and reading for book club and this blog has fallen by the wayside.

While I'm here though...

  • can do up her seat belt, but not tighten it
