Children learn age-appropriate social skills with Daniel through creativity, imagination, and music. For me, the songs are what stick out. Or, rather, get stuck in my head. I find myself […]

Where Did My Little Girl Go?

Where Did My Little Girl Go?

The other day, I was driving my 14 year old daughter somewhere and it hit me…where did my little girl go? She was sitting next to me in the passenger seat looking at her phone while singing lyrics to the song that was playing. I began to think back to when she was a baby. The […]
