Not-So-SAHM 2014 Favorites

Last year we shared our favorites of 2013 along with several other blogger friends. I so loved getting to hear the kids' favorite things -- they often reinforced interests of theirs I thought I nailed and, on occasion, they threw me for a total loop. So we decided to do another year of favorites along with No Monsters in My Bed and Where the Watermelons Grow. The kids were thin on explanations this year, (I tried not to prompt them as I do sometimes), but I still loved to hear their answers. And, like last year, I also gave my favorite kiddo-centered answers to the same categories. Plus, my favorite Instagrams of the year.
