All boxes have been emptied

Preschool

It’s finally here, Jaxson is going back to preschool and I have been longing for this day for a while. Two kids to look after everyday is definitely harder than one, no surprises there I guess. We have had some good days out all together but also some stressful days when me and Jason want […]
