Big Girl Room

This past summer, my sweet little girl moved out of my room into her new big girl room. It was a really exciting time for her…and a bitter-sweet time for me. You can read the full story about the big move here.

And even enough time to start up a crafting gig for fun

But now, it’s time for a new chapter. And of course with all new things that are very exciting, I also get attacked with nerves, guilt, jealousy, etc. Continue reading “Confessions of a Jealous and Guilty Mama”
