Last week was tough. Between a toddler who has recently been trying every bit of my patience every since day, a baby who still doesn’t do much sleeping and a dog with anxiety that we can’t get under control, I pretty much reached my breaking point on Friday. Luckily hubby was able to take the afternoon off and take Squish out for a while so I could mentally re-group. The kids are at tough ages and I know this will pass, but man does it make for some hard days.
Other than that, we celebrated Little Misss’ first Valentine’s day, had fun at the gym, went to the zoo, watched some movies and enjoyed a few days of 60 degree weather!
Plus we had a great visit with Mimi and Grandpa!
