  1. I SO miss the days when my babies were ALL MINE for ten weeks over the summer. We had such wonderful times together. This summer I have two of three at home, which is great, but it’s not the same as those perfect child-summer days. Enjoy!

    1. Awwww. I wish I was home with my little one. I look so forward to my weekends. I feel as if I have to make up for working during the week, so I squeeze in as much as I can during the weekends.
