Taking him sounded easier than trying to figure out milk supply for the few days I’d be gone. And then I started thinking about Sofia and the fun she would have…(Now if you have met me or seen my Instagram feed you know that I love spending time with my kids and I enjoy their company) so, I decided Sofia had to go as well!
