This may not seem like anything special (especially considering the size of this particular slide) but it was very special. I am so proud of my kid and all the hard work he's done already in his two years of life. ♥

I loved this piece. I believe (seemingly small) reclaiming acts such as these have huge impact on society as a whole.
Such a great article about meltdowns and what they teach us (parents and children alike)!
Fabulous and fact-filled article at Best for Babes all about breastfeeding. The stats about disease prevention for both mom and baby are my favorite part!
Love. I hope you'll read this if you haven't yet—it's a really thoughtful and open piece.
