Time for a refresh

Photo by Alexandra Grablewski, via 100 Layer Cake. I’m finding toddlerhood a tough transition. And not for the obvious reasons. Yes, Emerson’s emotions are epic and her meltdowns are exhausting, but I can deal with those. I’m fighting potty training and big girl beds. It’s all happening so fast and I miss my little baby.
