Recently, one of my followers commented that she didn't know I had a son. I realized, I don't post many pictures of him or discuss him here on the blog a great deal. Basically, that is because he is not a selfie taking, fashion risk taker, camera hog like his sister is! He also won't … Continue reading Big Steps at Sodor
