My 100th Post--A Tribute to S and Z

Well as a former elementary school teacher, the 100th day of school was a HUGE deal. I feel it is only right to make my 100th post a HUGE deal as well :)

For Christmas I made S a calendar called "Z Loves Daddy". It had pictures of them and then one reason why Z loved Daddy for every day. It was quite a challenge to come up with 365 good reasons why Z loved his Daddy (he was only 14 months at the time) but I was creative and pulled it off. So in the spirit of that calendar, I have decided to list 100 reasons why I love Z and S in honor of my 100th post! If it weren't for them, there would be no Raising Z :) I love you guys and Happy Father's Day S!
