Getting a toddler to bed is never easy, between the questions and the potty breaks it's quite the ordeal. Then, when everyone is satisfied, the next challenge: Picking out a book (or two). Noah, my 3yr old, has to pull multiple books out first before he makes his choice. I mean, when you're 3 you know all your books by their front cover ...continue reading
