      I think that’s because I follow all the best people! Enjoy your weekend as well! (We finally have sunshine here, so I think I’m well on my way! :0)

    Thank you for sharing! Great articles.

  3. I read Janet’s post about yelling, too, and it resonated so much with me. I hope I can bear it in mind (and read it again and again) when my daughter is old enough to really challenge me.
