Tips for Taking Care of your Skin

No one said that being a mom was ever easy. Hardly having the time to breathe, many moms neglect their skin without realizing the damage they’re doing. Barring the occasional visit to the beauty salon, what are some sure-fire ways to maintain healthy and radiant skin while not spending hours in front of a mirror?…

Ten Reason’s Mom’s are Ninja’s

I’ve realized a few things since being a mom. I’m actually a lot more than that…   1. We wear black a lot of the time and tell people it’s slimming 2. We “have eyes in the back of our head” and ears around corners. 3. We have reflexes like a cat and can prevent…

You Know You’re a Mom When

I used to wonder when I would feel like a mom. Would it be when my child looked up at me with tear drop eyes? Would it be when I heard her say I love you for the first time? Maybe the first time I softly sang my child off to sleep. Beotch please. Being a mother is…

How Will She Know?

She’s a big girl now, my tiny baby. Fairy tales and made up songs fill the silence on our drives to daycare along with a million questions, two million answers, and fingers up her nose.   Instead of walking, she skips, hops, or twirls. Because why not? Her love for her daddy and squeezes for…
