Not Feelin Guilty

Chores really wasn’t something I’ve thought about since having my first daughter. Yes of course they NEED to learn responsibility. Yes of course I had them by 8 yrs old.

  • I see other parents.

Suddenly I don’t feel so alone in the ” sometimes” struggles that feel like suffocation.

Letter to My Momma💗

Dear Momma: Happy Mother’s Day Darling! It’s so incomprehensible that I am older than you were when you passed away. It’s not fair.

I question if I’m too strict. … Continue reading Letter to My Momma💗
