I hated the constant callouses on my hands from hours upon hours of gymnastics… Read more »

If you’re on Instagram there are hordes of pictures being posted every minute of people in a gym.

What happens when you’re ill, but so are your children?

So you have a cold. What does your doctor say? Stay at home. Get some rest. What a joke. Did he notice the two sick children you have with you? This was my dilemma last week. Both my children and I were struck down with colds at the same time. My husband, he had a milder… Read more »
