Have a Wonderful Weekend

What do you have planned for the weekend? I’m taking my girls on a long overdue picnic play date with a classmate they haven’t seen since the beginning of the shut down. Liv is so excited.

Things Every Busy Mom Should Have in Her Bag

Most days I am up by 5a.m, feeling like I am defying the laws of nature and wellness by rising so early in the morning. I prepare lunches that may or may not be consumed, by little people who do not give a damn that it took me about 45 minutes to carefully pack balanced […]
