Here’s a true look at what life is like with an au pair. We host an au pair to help with our two children: 2.5 years old and five months. At first, I thought hosting an au pair was overkill. I mean, I grew up with five sisters. My mom did everything. Here I am […]
So, we’re pregnant! We’re having another girl! Emmie is so freaking excited to be a big sister…we think…she actually doesn’t really seem to get it, so we’re projecting excitement onto her. We just found out we’ll be having another daughter. We could not be more excited. Let me repeat: we could not be more excited. […]
