I used to be a tad judgmental about people who used things like WIC or food stamps. It wasn’t my official policy to be judgmental about those things, as I have always believed those programs to be a beneficial aid to people who need it, and know many AWESOME mommas who use it to help […]
On the eve of the busiest travel day of the year, I thought this would be an opportune time to discuss most adult’s nightmare: travel with small children. It is amazing how an already unpleasant experience like being screened by TSA or having the person in front of you lean their seat back immediately after […]

Ah, November, you certainly snuck up on us. The holiday season is now in full ramp, and that means invites to lots of parties. And who doesn’t love a party? Of course, there’s one type of party invite that always brings me anxiety, and that is the Direct Sales Party. If you’re not familiar with […]

I’d like to give a shout-out to the dads out there who are just doing their jobs every day, being dads. I don’t think dads get their due recognition for just being dads. What do I mean, you ask? Well, this stems from a recent business trip I took during which I repeatedly heard, “Who […]
