We are all bombarded with guilt at one point or another. However, I feel like moms get hit with it the hardest. It’s not just once in a while for us, it is EVERY SINGLE DAY! At least for me it is! We start out the day positive, ready for another day. We tell ourselves,… Read More The Mom Guilt

It seems like… Read More Our Terrible, Horrible No Good Very Bad Day, Week, Month or Year
