You’ll Never Believe all the Crap in This Messy Mom Car

Since having kids, my car has taken on a life of it’s own. No matter how hard I try, it becomes a landfill in a matter of hours.

Life stuff. Work stuff. Kid stuff. Love stuff. Health stuff. […]

A Married Mom’s Message to Single Moms | Being a Single Mom is Hard

No matter what you think, being a married mom is nothing like being a single mom. I’m married with two kids and a husband who travels most of the time. I’ve heard other married women in my situation say they feel, “just like a single mom.” And while I get feeling like you are doing it all on your own, feeling like you are doing it on your own is not the same as actually doing it on your own.
