We had dinner with my mother-in-law one weekend so I had my daughter wear the tutu skirt given by her lola (grandmother). I paired it with a simple white tee with “Perfect Princess” written on it and put her hair up in a pigtail. There’s something about pigtails, I feel like she looks so much cuter wearing one; so whenever I want her to look extra cute, I put her hair up in pigtails. Her lola (grandmother) gave her (and us too) 3 pairs of sneakers. She changed into her current favorite pair, the Disney Princesses that lights up whenever she walks…

And if you’re a working mom like me, you’d know that waking up an hour before you’re supposed to leave doesn’t work anymore. In between taking a shower and getting ready for work, preparing healthy breakfast, changing diapers and clothes (and sometimes shortly after you’ve changed their clothes, they’d manage to get them dirty again), brushing those tiny teeth, fixing your daughter’s hair, and preparing supplies for school (or daycare, we just like to call it school), 2 hours is hardly enough. And to think that I…
