I once saw a picture that was flying around the Internet sometime towards the end of last year about a woman that was carrying so much.

Embrace The Interruptions

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Mom Talk, Parenting

Before having kids, we all imagined having the picture perfect moments of motherhood. At least, I did. I, for one, believed that I could schedule everything and everybody. I love schedules!

I could spend hours praying and reading my bible without a single moment of interruption. I would read and study with various […]
