Sometimes Being a Mom is Hard

Sometimes being a mom is hard. I had one of those weeks this week.  We have all had one like this, and most of us have had a few. Work is stressful, my husband was out of town, kiddo got sick and I just felt like you couldn’t control a thing anymore. Doesn’t matter how […]
