mermaidsews 40+ years of marriage, 4 daughters, 2 grandchildren. Their first international trip together in over 30 years. I'm so happy for them I could cry. They deserve all the happiness in the world after devoting their lives to their family and countless other children in need! #myheroes 1w

mermaidsews This girl is so grown up. And loves her daycare cause she's soooo social. She brought me her shoes, then her jacket, then her hat, then picked up her bag (thanks @nerdysewist) and went to the door saying bye bye mommy. I asked for a kiss she turned around, walked over and gave me one, waved and walked out the door with daddy. It's hard being a mom period, and being a working mom brings a lot of guilt about being gone, but there are positives and I love how secure and independent she is at 13 months! 3w
  •   heartmadelife I cannot believe she's that old already!! 3w
  •   shell_ki The confidence and independence that my daughter has gained from daycare is why I continue to go into the office every day. Sure, I'd love to be home with her, but we need my second income even though majority of it gets eaten up by daycare costs. My daughter loves "school" and she's becoming an awesome two year old! 3w
  •   rtamiko Cute!!! 3w
  •   jlapac The important thing is that you are there when she needs you and that you set a good example. 3w
