Facebook, Feminism and the Mommy Wars

I can't even remember the tweet that triggered this thought, but it's something that's been swirling around social media for a while. Facebook, feminism, and social media's role in the Mommy Wars.

Boxing Day memories

I googled "Boxing Day" last night, just to make sure I knew exactly what it was for today. That act triggered a childhood memory. If you're an 80s child, you may have a similar memory.

This leaves your radiant new mom face, buff arms and legs, and of course everyone is looking at the baby anyway, so relax. Since I'm a safety girl, I recommend the Ergo Baby carrier since it allows... Continue Reading →
