LucysnowMarch2013Take it from Lucy: don’t put anything in your ear but your elbow.

My apologies for being a little bit late with this week’s parenting mission and vlog. We had a mini health related adventure, which I explain in the video, that threw me off of my normal recording schedule. (It is always something, right?)

Best wishes, friends!  Have a wonderful week with your kids!
