Rocking Motherhood Challenge

Rocking Motherhood Challenge

Hi all! I’m super excited about today’s post, the Rocking Motherhood Challenge. Like, seriously. I was nominated by Meghna Dixit over at Love, Life, & The Little One to join this fantastic challenge to come up with 10 reasons that I’m “rocking motherhood”. Her Rocking Motherhood post is inspirational and heartfelt; I seriously encourage you to read it.

I want to talk about laundry. We were out of town from Thursday to Sunday last week. Hubby and I went to Hollywood Beach, and AJ and the dogs went to my parents’ house. Hubby threw a load of laundry in Wednesday…
