Mark’s been working late the last couple of nights, so I’ve had my summer mommy’s helper, Sher, stay late to help with late afternoon activities/dinner/bath/bedtime. After tonight I’m a bit worried about how she might perceive me. Continue reading

So Mark went to go find him at 7:00am (Mark’s a go-getter) and knocked on his door. Continue reading
