It's been a milestone week in our house. Tonight I fly home after my first trip (and night away) without the little guy. It was really hard to leave him but the time away made me realize it was long over due and much needed. And, while I'm happy to have this particular milestone behind me, I am very much looking forward to cuddling with him as soon as I get home.

It's time for us to recondsider the toys our kids are playing with.

This video elicited so many "yeses" and a few tears too.

Just in case you feel your Instagram feed is missing a little something, might I suggest you follow this awesome account.

I fully support this move from Target and hope it rolls out nationwide.

And finally, let's welcome spring (yeah, embracing positive thinking here) by whipping up this fresh, tasty dish.
