LN’s stomping grounds are about to get a lot more interesting, as Colonial Marketplace is getting a major renovation.

I have to admit that when it comes to parenting I wasn’t prepared for some, well most, of it. It’s nice we get those early years to practice. I mean there are no lasting repercussions to switching to a big boy bed too early or forgetting them at preschool (once, it happened once). Now, however, I am sailing in uncharted waters, and if I make a mistake, I could capsize.
