Sharing My Most Messy Moment

Posted by: | 1 Comment

A series of messy moments… the perfect way to describe (one part of) motherhood – especially when there’s a baby involved. Before I became a mom, one of the things I dreaded most about having babies was the idea of changing diapers, particularly the poop type. Everybody used to tell me that it wasn’t that bad when it was your own child, but I didn’t feel any different once my daughter was born. I wanted to barf every single timeRead More ...

I sure hope so… I know it’s crazy for me to even think about this right now considering my kids are only 5 and 2, but it’s something I often wonder. In fact, I’ve been meaning to write about this for a while, but then I got the February issue of Latina magazine which has an article titled Are we losing our Language? on the cover and I decidedRead More ...
