Toddler Life

Like a Girl

Like A Girl

One Friday night my husband and I got WAAAY too into a surprisingly intense round of toddler basketball, when we realized we weren’t actually letting our toddler have the ball as our excited spirits overtook us, and we fought for one last point in “overtime.” My husband and I are physically very competitive with each […]
