Black, white, close-range, free-range, dairy-free, all-the-cheese, homeschoolin’, unschoolin’, protesting, celebrating, made-up-face, makeupless. Yoga pants? Not a chance …

Whatever kind of mom you are, and however you’re momming it today …

Remember, before you were ever a mother …

You were *you.*

And there’s a really good chance you still are.
