Wordless Wednesday: I’m Going To Need To Get Myself A Hobby

Because this boy doesn’t really need me anymore.   Don’t get me wrong, it’s nice that he will sit in an armchair and read while I shop at Anthropologie but still … he’s 7 years old!  I just thought I’d get a little more time … Wordless Wednesday is sponsored by 5 Minutes for Mom among […]
