I have a Master's degree in Secondary Education, a Bachelor's degree in English, and a Secondary Ed teaching license. I also have a four year old son, a one year old son, a husband, and a cat. Let's see how those degrees help me manage my life..... Spoiler alert- they just decorate the walls.

  1. Ahh, I loved this!!! When I have my toughest days, they are tough because I feel like I’m not getting anything done or being the mom I want to be. But when you break it down like this, it’s clear to see what’s accomplished and how much mothering is going on!
