Recently, a friend told me her son who lived about 700 miles away–had moved an additional 300 miles further away–and never bothered to tell her. He and his wife have a 2 year son and another child due near the end of November. He wanted her to come visit for the holidays and never bothered… Read More Motherhood – Chapter 2 ‘Secrets’
I read a blog post today entitled “10 Things I Wish I’d Known Before Becoming A Mom” (https://www.thecrunchymommy.com/10-things-to-know-motherhood).
