5 Things I Never Leave The House Without

I have tried many times to downsize my handbag. Many. Many. Times. I continue to fail.

Logic of a Three Year Old 

My internet speed is LOW, so I call the ISP and he is checking to see what's wrong. All the while, my 3 year old (who is off school sick) is sitting on my lap.
