Paging Rosie: Transitioning to a Toddler Bed

Your wee one’s life is always filled with so many milestones and transitioning to a toddler bed is another one of those. Usually between your little one’s second and third birthday, though some kid’s transition earlier, they will be ready for a toddler bed and despite them always being ‘your’ baby, this is a sure sign that they are no longer a baby.

Trying to Collect my Thoughts on Sandy Hook

I have been wanting to write since the tragedy this past Friday but to be completely honest I have struggled with what to write. I am a person that tries to find meaning in the chaos that can sometimes surrounds us. It is a survival mechanism I think so many of us use. I do think ultimately finding some meaning even when there appears to be none, pays some kind of homage, respect to those lost in tragic events such as this one in Newtown, CT.
