I know I left my sanity around here somewhere.

I’m not sure how anyone else feels about it, but this parenting thing is exhausting. Particularly at the young age that my kids are at, I need to help them with so many things.

With a couple million apps out there in the app store it can be a little daunting to sort through them all.  Over the past several years I have found myself relying heavily on a few apps and I wanted to share those with everyone in hopes that I can help someone out.  The good thing is most of these are free.   Continue reading Top Stay-at-Home-Dad Apps
