My First Baby, My Daughter is 10! A decade. A decade has passed since I felt the excitement of the unknown of becoming a mom.

A decade ofContinue reading “My First Baby, My Daughter is 10!”

Exploring the Liberty Science Center!

#LSCSummer18 @LibertyScienceCenter @Momtrends   I loved science centers as a kid and still do. I’m lucky now that my children comply and join me so I don’t have to go alone (ha!).  I challenge anyone to get the same thrill from modern technology as you do from blowing a giant bubble in a science center bubble maker.Continue reading “Exploring the Liberty Science Center!”
