Mommy guilt… I find myself reading AND hearing about it (and sometimes experiencing it) all the time… Maybe that’s because I can’t help myself from clicking on almost every parenting-related post I see… Maybe that’s because I watched the trailer for “Bad Moms” twice last night….Maybe it’s because parenting is a job that comes without… Continue reading Bad Mom(s)… OR (Yet Another Post about) Mommy Guilt… Or Screen Time…
I had an ultrasound tech yesterday who told me that she had her kids close in age… At one point she had a 2 year-old, a 1 year-old, and newborn twins.
