I’m Not Avoiding Or Ignoring You, I’m Trying To Manage My Anxiety

June 11, 2019 | Comments Off on I’m Not Avoiding Or Ignoring You, I’m Trying To Manage My Anxiety

Clint Edwards Scary Mommy SCARY MOMMY AND VICTORIA BORODINOVA/MIKE CHAI/PEXEL I was at a conference recently, chatting with two friends I’d know online for years but never met in person.

The Local Moms Network Summer Reading Guide!

| Comments Off on The Local Moms Network Summer Reading Guide!

  If we’re being real here, summer reading for moms can be a bit of a pipe dream, particularly for those of us who have young kids (as in, you need to be 100 percent focused on them to keep them alive). Or kids with crazy sports schedules. Or full-time jobs. Etc., etc. But when your kids are at camp/sleeping/playing/slightly older or otherwise occupied, losing yourself in a good book can be like taking a mini-vacay without leaving your home (or pool chair).
