I went to college for teaching. Even finished a master’s degree in literacy education. But let’s be real. With our first three children each being a year apart, the costs of adequate childcare for our little ones equated to just about as much as what I would be bringing home each day working in the classroom and at the time, it just didn’t justify me being away from our children. And so began my roll as a stay-at-home mom. I cherished those early years, but I found out pretty quickly that time was fleeting and I wanted so badly to learn how to document their childhood “better”.
