Going Into Kindergarten

I can’t believe my oldest son, my first baby is starting kindergarten!  It’s not really a “How exciting!  So fun!” kind of “I can’t believe it,” but more of a “What am I going to do?  My life will never be the same.  I’m freaking out!” kind of “I can’t believe it.  I thought I…

Reading

My oldest is doing very well with his reading.  He can read Hop on Pop by Dr. Seuss and other books with short sentences.  Which aren’t easy to find, by the way.  There are children’s books with few pages, but tons of words on each page, and even books with large words, but they often…
