Things you say when you’re a stay at home mom

Spending your days with young children is a tough job. You spend your time trying to create a fun learning environment for these little people who you love so much, while working very hard to retain a small amount of your sanity as they test your patience with everything they've got.

No puking, no bedrest and I've managed not to kill anyone due to these crazy hormones, but I'm still feeling those "Get this baby out of me" third trimester vibes. The braxton hicks are constant these days [...]
