I was trying to recall a day when I was a fantastic mom all day, where I managed to stay patient, positive and in the zone. More often than not, I flop back and forth between extremes like a fish out of water, I'm a fantastic mom, wait, nope I'm a shitty mom. It's incredible how quickly I can go from nailing it to absolutely shitting the bed.
We are sisters, entrepreneurs, mothers and purveyors of fun. We are suspicious of people of who don't drink, and are not twins; Leigh is four years older. We have three children each.
I've got a bit of an issue. Well, I'm not sure it's an issue, but my sister is adamant it is. I love, you could even say am obsessed with, Lululemon skirts.

It turns out involuntarily peeing your pants is NOT okay. We are not speaking from a social standpoint, where walking around with urine-soaked pants is frowned upon.
