macGyver mama

To anyone who thought MacGyver could perform miracles with some dental floss and a chewed piece of gum, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.  We’d put our money on a mama any day — think MacGyver could do this… Catch a ball flying at his head without skipping a beat in the story he’s in the […]

luxury redefined

So clearly a lot changes when our little people are born.  Our world does a 180 in an instant — diapers, feedings, ferocious protective instincts, and so much more.  One of the more subtle things that sort of creeps up on us is the shift in our thinking in terms of the way in which […]
