Parenting is getting real, hard!

This school year has been a huge transition for the Bolton’ family. My husband and I are transitioning from parents of littles to parents of biggins and our roles as parents are expounding.

The attitude that I get when I ask if their room is clean or the living room is vacuumed could be considered “diva”.

Packing for our trip with the latest doll fashions designed by Jenny. Who helped us change the girls outfits. I have to say the journey girls wardrobe is chic and cute doll clothes. I also love the price point of the doll considering the quality of there hair and eyes.
