Why My Daughter Cannot Go to School

Madison attended public school for Kinder and First Grade. She was miserable. For both grades. I see pictures pop up on my newsfeed for the Facebook memories and during that time she is always sleeping. She was exhausted. I would even go as far…

What Does a Typical Day Look Like For Us?
