Another New Beginning


We are moving AGAIN! A lot of changes have been happening in the last couple of years for my family. Hopefully soon we  will find stability. A stable home, a stable schedule, and fit into life again. Our scheduled moving day is 4/30/17.

Daily Schedule of a Toddler

Toddler Sleeping Schedule

I have grown to learn that schedules are necessary, especially for toddlers. Having a daily schedule for your toddler will help your day run so much more smooth.
