50,000 time Thank you

I don’t have a huge amount of followers which makes this 50,000 view milestone looks somewhat big … for me anyway so..


For your likes and comments, for taking the time to read and for cheering for my girl and encouraging me in my journey as a mom and as a blogger!

Me: Em, come on move faster little snail, wash your face than I’ll come fix your hair.

Emily: I fixed my hair already.


16 years 3 months and some days later….

Emily was practicing on her dolls but I had no idea she transferred the knowledge and skills to her own hair.

I am once again amazed and proud. 2014 has been so far a good life skills learning year for Emily and I will do my best to update you on all of those milestones who look so small and overdue to the outside world but you and I know, they are tremendous achievements in Emily’s world!
