It’s really too much for my tired pulled in 200 directions brain to sit down and type out right now, but as I listened to a podcast the other day I heard this: “There is nothing “efficient” about a culture of life.” The speaker, Jennifer Fulwiler ,was talking about going on a book tour with her SIX children and the challenges this brings with it.

Martha loves a little British cartoon called “Chloe’s Closet” so I set out to throw her a Chloe birthday bash. I had to get creative but with a few simple decorations it came off well.

The premise of this show is about a little girl who plays dress up everyday and goes on adventures as whatever she is dressed up as that day. It’s cute and I like listening to Chloe’s Welsh accent.
