Win with me and Bratz {Giveaway Closed}

Something strange has happened to me since becoming a girl-mom; I’ve fallen in love with all things pastel, pink, purple and plush and I want all the dolls and ponies – ALL of them!

You are a good mommy

I have “met” some amazing expecting mommies through this blog; I have gotten to interview them and ask them questions and answer their questions and support them and follow the journeys of those that have their own blogs. And there is one feeling that swells up out of them and every mommy I have ever encountered – Am I going to be a good mommy. Here is my answer to you all…

Why I am a distracted parent 

Happy Women’s Day mammas. With today being all about celebrating how women can make a difference, I thought I would share a little bit about where I am on my journey to make a difference to other mammas, and a few other things.
