#WorkHardParentHarder The motto of a working mommy

When you’re pregnant everyone goes on and on about everything you’ll experience with your newborn and as a parent in general.

We moved around a lot when I was a kid, enough for me to attend five elementary schools between 1st and 8th grade. Of all the places I’ve lived, 616 S. Duke Street appears to be the one that sticks out the most. That one address I remember just as clear as day, probably more... Read more »

Why Curious George may be a bad influence on my child.. and yours too!
A few months ago, Go-2-baby was Caillou’s biggest fan, something I learned that many other parents disagreed with. After searching the web, I realized that Caillou was/is America’s most hated Cartoon (and he isn’t even American,) go figure.
