We hope you are all well, sane and safe in this trying and quite frankly, scary time. COVID-19 has brought a lot to each of our doorsteps, and while we each my be transitioning to and through new ways of life we hope you know a few things:
1. We are here for you, if you have questions, need support or just need an ear to vent and/or problem solve with, don’t hesitate to reach out, remember, in raising our littles, it takes a village ♥️
2. If you find yourself at home looking for ways to support your little in their academic and food-exploration journey, we are here to help. We have re-vamped and repurposed our instagram posts for the next few weeks to bring you more ideas for how to support and teach your little at home with items your already have. In times such as this we are all feeling the pinch (and burden) of the economic changes flowing around us and we want you to know there are so many great ways to teach and help your little with the things you already have at home!
