Back to the grind

Have you ever whispered to yourself, “I never thought I would be that parent” when facing certain situations? In the last couple of weeks, I’ve caught myself saying this, especially when my husband set up the play tent we acquired for our ten-month-old. Our…

Maybe I’ll cry tomorrow

Some of you have noticed my absence on here, and I just wanted to touch base. As I mentioned in a few posts before, I’ve been in isolation months before this quarantine took effect. I would say that I’ve been a homebody for almost…

Dear Mama
