This has been one of the hardest years I have ever had as a parent. It has been filled with grief, loss, and hurt that should never be experienced. Even worst, my kids had a front row seat to a lot of it. When you go through hard times it can be simpler to just tell the kids it isn’t for them to worry about. However, sometimes you have to have hard discussions. There are seasons for explaining hard things to kids. We are in the middle of that season and I wanted to share some tips to help you if you are dealing with anything similar.
My daughter has become quite the avid reader. She devours books before I can even catch the whole plot line from her. I wanted to share some of these titles with you in case you are looking for a great book for 10-year-olds. I’m pretty sure she wears out our local librarians looking for the next adventure to go on. These are on different reading levels because she simply reads what she enjoys.

These won’t be exact measurements as each of these dolls is sized a bit different but it will be a great tutorial to help you make your own diy 18 inch doll skirt.
