The Mom-Guilt List

If you’re a mom who doesn’t suffer from mom guilt then I applaud you. Better yet, I raise a glass of wine to you. You have managed to not go BaNaNaS, you’ve Found Balance and inner peace. Cheers.

If you’re like the rest of us you’re just a hot mess hoping to get through the day. Like there aren’t enough things to worry about, here’s why our brains go a mile a minute:
