Life is Simple…Keep it Simple!

“Life is pretty simple: You do some stuff. Most fails. Some works. You do more of what works. If it works big, others quickly copy it. Then you do something else. The trick is the doing something else.” –Leonardo da Vinci

My son is now 19 months old and is getting pretty good at this little game, except he has one thing confused…

Rest assured, my wife and I will continue to work on this…
