How To Do All The Things – Part 2

If you are back after my last post then you are something else. The last post was more of the philosophy of how I do all the stuff I do and today is more of the application of how I do it all. For me, this is the most fun part, and is probably more […]

How To Do All The Things – Part 1

This whole idea of “being on top of your game” in motherhood is a loaded topic. It is also one that I have strong opinions about. And before we get down into it I want to warn you that my opinions are not gently held lambs of encouragement. The friends that mean the most to […]
