THE MOM TRAP | SNEAKY LIES THAT TRAPS US AS MOMS

I have found that thee most wildest of battles to confront, and overcome are always the battles that go on in my mind. “Did I mess this up, did I say or do the wrong thing, why did they say that or behave like that around me, am I over thinking this or not putting enough thought into it?” It’s one thing to have your own personal “mind” battles, but it’s another thing when those mind battles start to attack our “mom-hood” – because it involves other little people, OUR… Read More

THE INTROVERTED MOM

A common misconception when people first meet me, is to naturally assume that I am outgoing and an a natural extrovert.
