Playing it Safe: The Neighborhood

Oh hello dear friends and happy Monday. Well it took 2 hours, but Liam is finally down for a nap. He is a stubborn fellow, which I blame completely on Clint. I, on the other hand, am so not stubborn that I fought with a 1-year-old for two hours over a nap. Hmmm.

Anyways, I am happy to bring you a post all about playing safe in the neighborhood. Now, my little critter doesn't really play out and about in the hood yet, but he will some day.

  1. Last year they took all the speed bumps out of my neighborhood - folks loved it, but I didn't. Drivers took to driving on the wrong side of the street and never slowing on corners.

    I love my speed bumps!
    Great blog!
    We all need reminders from time to time.

    1. I know it! I want them to put speed bums in front of our house so bad. At least a stop sign! People drive by waaaay too fast!
