I’m kind of crazy late in publishing this month’s What’s On Your Nightstand? post. For anyone new, this is a super fun, super ease blog carnival, hosted by the lovely ladies at 5 Minutes for Books.

Yesterday was MM’s first day of second grade. He’s a seasoned professional now in the back to school pictures department. Rocking his favorite hat, an awesome new shirt and perfectly faded denim jeans and a personality that cannot be contained. It seriously took me less than two minutes to get a great assortment of pictures of this momentous occasion and then sweatshirts and light jackets … Continue reading First Days: His first day of 2nd Grade & Her first day of 4K.
