10 REASONS WHY LIVING WITH A (BOY) TODDLER IS LIKE LIVING IN A FRAT HOUSE

Now that I’m a mom of two boys, I’m slowly starting to realize how gross they really are.

Being a woman with two kids of her own, her advice and support really helped me.  At one point she looked at me as I was trying to get through a painful contraction and said, “You are much stronger than you think you are.”  This wasn’t the first time I’ve heard this, but it was the first time someone said it when I desperately needed to hear it. As soon as the words left her lips I found my strength; I just had to reach for it....more
