  1. Sure wish I could be part of your team even for one month so I could learn to do this. It would most definitely be helpful I'm thinking especially this time of year. Since getting our 2 new sons 2 months ago, seems our calendar has been extra full and doesn't look like it is going to let up any time soon with the holiday season coming up. Off to read more about this on your blog. Thanks for posting about this.
