All Moms Are Yoga Masters, Even If They Don't Know It

If you’re a mom you’re probably engaged in the constant struggle between learning to love your body and trying to find time to workout. But we need to stop being so hard on ourselves. Just because we don’t actually roll out a mat or slap on a sports bra doesn’t me we aren’t getting our fitness on. All moms are actually master level yogis, we just don’t go around bragging about it.

Taking Ridiculous Holiday Photos Of Your Kids Is Mean And I Am Totally Guilty Of It

I can remember how annoyed I would get, how bad I felt for those kids and the many silent pledges I made that when I became a mother, I would NEVER be that big of an asshole.

The Mommyish Guide To Differentiating The Duggars

Ah, the Duggars. Loyal Mommyish readers know that this family is a topic close to my heart.
