This Is Ella’s Hair

This is Ella’s hair. My goal as her mom has always been to take care of it myself, with no outside help, and when she was a toddler, I could! Tiny matutas were perfectly fine. Loose mini ponytails were good for a week. Now that she’s older, she cares a lot more about how her […] Read more…

Mommy’s Diapers #AlwaysStandUpKE
