I'm a big reader and always said I wanted to instill that in my kids early on, so I am so happy my toddler loves curling up with a good Dr. Seuss book.
Worst parenting moment?
Anytime he's sick it crushes me. He had quite a few fevers in his first year - the fear and helplessness is the worst feeling I've ever had.
Fave quote?

Something people would be surprised to learn about you?

Cuddles from the little guy.
