the requisite mother’s day post

That day of celebration for those women who have been given the responsibility of raising a tiny human has come upon us once again. I personally have attempted to do so six times.  Yes, six (you can see them here). More than some.

wrong side of the bed

Ever have one of “those days”?  You know, the kind when you get out of bed and you just feel off.  You feel the weight of the world on your shoulders.  You feel grumpy for no particular reason (after all the day hasn’t even started!).  You feel sad and discouraged and beaten and sore?
