Mothering With Brain Damage

This winter, since I had some time to get “settled,” and I am in Ohio and its cold, I found Wee One some classes and activities. Not too many, because I don’t think its right for her, but some. We really liked The Little Gym in Seattle, but it’s really far from where I live, and I found a tumbling tot class nearby (and much cheaper!)

I invite you to join me – you can do 12/12, 365/365, x/x! Just what ever you want! Then, as I accomplish them, I’ll update the page, and probably add a post or two about it.
