    I’m not sure if it’s the fact that I breastfed them each for a year and a half, or just sheer luck, but in the short few years my children have been alive, they rarely get sick.

So about a year ago, when my daughter had a cough that wouldn’t go away I wasn’t sure how to handle it. I didn’t like to give medicine but I also didn’t want her to suffer all night long being all congested and coughing so much she couldn’t sleep. She’d reached the magical age of 4 so more…

My mom lives near train tracks and when we’d go over to her house he’d look out the window and watch the train go by over and over and cheer for it each time. When we went to Disney World he saw trains everywhere. To him, a roller coaster is a train, a tram is a train. Anything lined up in a row is a train. He sometimes will even line up his food and say “choo choo!” And he enjoys watching train videos on YouTube. Not the singing cartoon…

Sure, she thought it was kind of fun, but she wasn’t really interested in what her folders looked like. And the one she really liked was college ruled, not wide ruled. It wasn’t an all-out fail, but it wasn’t the experience of my dreams either. She didn’t see any backpacks she cared for so she browsed Amazon while walking through the store and picked out her book bag and lunch box on Prime. There’s back-to-school shopping in…
