More Than A Mom: Part One Birth Story

My journey into motherhood and mothering a special needs child.  I woke up this morning and my son is now 6 years old! My first born now needs two hands to count his age! And he can talk and tell us what he wants, he understands what today is, and is excited. You’re thinking, of course he can, he’s six!

Setting Your Pregnancy & Breastfeeding Intentions

And how we can help you save money and look your best. The holidays are over, and our first full ‘holiday hangover’ week is complete! Getting back to a familiar routine can be both reassuring and draining after the festivities of the holiday season. January marks a time of new beginnings. A time some of us set resolutions or intentions for the year to come and for shorter periods. We set our hopes and dreams for 2020. Setting intentions for the year, yourself, and your parenting style is really important. And the sooner, before baby is born, the better. Even...
