Want to know why? You’re going to have to watch my vlog to find the answer. You will also find the answer to this question: What is the hardest part of having kids? Also, this week is Cooper with Kiki—no coffee in sight, but plenty of shouting baby. You might want to adjust your volume. (Seriously. She is loud.)
