Great idea from another Mommy:)


I learned about a mom today, Lisa-Jo Baker, who has a cool blog called Gypsy Mama. Sounds like she “gets” the No Mommy’s Perfect concept and takes it directly to lots of Mommies through her writing and speaking. Awesome!  You can also download her FREE e-book entitled “The Cheerleader for Tired Moms” by visiting her site. Take a five minute coffee break and check out her blog.  You deserve it Moms!

The Power of Girl Talk


Walk into any coffee shop and you are sure to witness it. Sit in a mall parking lot and you won’t have to wait long to see it. Observe the pick up line at school and it’s happening many times over. Sit across from a friend’s kitchen table and you are experiencing it. It gets us through rough days, helps us rebound from all nighters with sick kids and often happens without planning or pretense. Sadly, men cannot have it nor can it be bought. It’s Girl Talk. Girl Talk are those conversations that women have which others may term…
