Episode #6 What About Mom?

It’s easy to be so involved with parenting and homeschooling that you forget about taking care of mom. In this episode we give permission to make you a priority. You can still have hobbies, have peace amongst the chaos, take a break when needed, and remember to treat yo’self!! If you’re running on empty, you won’t have enough in your own tank to be the best you could be.
