I Don’t Cherish ALL The Moments

There’s a simple saying that has the power to send my mom guilt skyrocketing through the roof. “Cherish these moments.” The saying is innocent enough in itself, however sometimes instead of cherishing, I feel like I spend more days simply surviving.  It’s on these survival mode days that my parenting mantra seems to become “This […]
