Is It Really February 11?

I guess it is! Today is my hubby’s birthday, and my Dad & Stepmom left town. My Mom agreed to stay (up all night) with the kiddo, so we’re having an impromptu “couple” night! All night! We might sleep until noon! Uninterrupted! Last night the kiddo was up from 2:30 until 6:00. I had a… Continue reading Is It Really February 11?
