The. entire. house.
Wow that’s a lot of paint!
I actually had some time to think about it as we were doing some work on the house and that dragged on for months.

If there’s only one supplement you give your kids, make it vitamin D.

It boosts the immune system which will protect your kids from getting sick.
Got a bad sinus infection?
When I was pregnant I had a really bad sinus infection which lasted a few weeks.
