Will you be one of our REAL MOMS??

Attention Real Moms

Yes you, the one reading this.  The one who knows what it’s like to be in the trenches.  The one who knows what it’s like to wake up at 5 to baby, only to have woken up three times before 5, once for crying baby, once for crying toddler, one more for crying baby (whilst husband remains peacefully asleep).  The one who’s capable of getting 50 things done before 9 am..

It’s now 8:45 a.m. (feels like 8:45 p.m.) but the day already feels like success – only Dr. appt, grocery shopping, dry cleaners,  laundry, playdate, dinner left to worry about today.  Just another day in the life of a Real Mom.
