Motherhood is a lifelong journey...there will be ups and downs and the downs don't mean you are failing, they mean you are human.

Need a Dose of Dopamine?
How cool is that?! It’s a win-win situation 🙂 Even though I’m an introvert, I always try to compliment the checker at the register or waitress at a restaurant because I figure it might be the only nice thing they hear all day.
