Blippi’d

My son Hudson is OBSESSED with Blippi. Can all the Mamas & Papas raise your hand if you have a toddler who is requesting to watch Blippi AD NAUSEAM?! (Send wine and headphones.)

Quarantine art club

Sheesh, friends. This new normal, this quarantine life – it’s not easy, right? I don’t do well with unknowns, with large fears, with missing people.
