You’re a single mom because you’re divorced; because you’re widowed; because you got pregnant at a young age and never had support; because your children’s father is serving our country and has been deployed more days than he’s been home; because your niece and nephew were in an unfortunate situation and you stepped up by adopting them. You’re a single mom because life isn’t perfect. Being a single mom is basically hard every day of the year, but it tends to have a little ext

Mommy chat rooms, mommy blogs, mommy websites, they’re all the rage. Right?

I didn't need to look cute because well, I'm too old to take a picture with Santa.

If it is true, chances are, we already know they’re always sick and the last thing we need is for you to remind us of that. We’re hurting each and every time our babies are ill.

2. Kaleb thinks in order to have an appropriate winter, it must snow. Thank you Frozen for giving my child false hope about snow in the winter time.
3. Speaking of winter and Christmas, I de
