Mom Life: Whip It Out Moms!

I don’t have any specific posts in mind for today but wanted to sit and just BE with my writing and computer (and cup of coffee) so let’s see where this goes. So yesterday I read an article about Breastfeeding. No I am not having another baby BUT it popped into my feed and the…


MOM Life…I am Rooting for YOUR Rise!

I started a couple different posts today and didn’t finish either of them so I deleted them.
