It’s funny how you think that with the second child, you’d have it all figured out, only because you’ve been there and done it before. Meehhh. How wrong can you go? Again, new motherhood proves to be full of surprises and my value system has taken another kick in the backside, forcing it to gently […]
Hello. It’s me. I am still here. Albeit a bit quieter than I used to be. Motherhood 2.0 has turned out to be an application with a few hiccups.
