Free Inspirational Printable: Why Not?

Do you ever hear a voice inside your head that is full of doubts? Confession: I hear it all the time. I hear it a lot when I come up with a really great but (fill in the blank: time-consuming, gut-wrenching, scary, mind-numbing) idea.

Well, I was right! At Alexa’s yearly checkup, the doctor noted some symmetry with the number 4: 4 years old, 40 lbs, 40.5 inches, 20/40 vision (which I’m told is normal range for this age).
