Have you ever thought something about someone else and said it out loud not thinking anything of it? We all have...so don't lie to yourself. This whole motherhood thing has so many different options and ways to do things that...
Life as a parent is full of changes. I talk about poop a lot now. I consider the opportunity to go to bed at 10 p.m. a true luxury. I'm a constant watchman for BPA, soy additives, and any...
