Yes, My Kids Have A Schedule

Yes, My Kids Have A Schedule

And it has made me a nicer mom. And a better mom for that matter. Now there are clear expectations and there’s not as much whining and complaining. Our whole day down to the minute is not scheduled! That sounds like too much stress for my kind of mothering haha. But we do have a […]

The brides-to-be (all were strangers before the show), attend each other’s weddings and give each wedding a rating based on different […]
