I promise, he doesn’t.

Ellie is very into contest games right now – as in, everything is a race. Everything. And everyone is always playing, even if they don’t know it. “I finished my dinner first, I win!!” “I made it to the car first, I’m the winner!” “Aw, Jamie beat me to the bathtub!” “I got my shoes […]

So here goes… A little basic […]
