How to talk to your kids about how babies are made?

  Oh Mommyhood! Moms, I need your help! My boys are just turned four and about to turn three. A few weeks ago, I learned that the famous April the giraffe is pregnant again!

They have had the movie Boss Baby on repeat all week. Now, if you haven’t seen Boss Baby, it’s adorable. BUT, it talks about where babies come from and NOW my kids...

  When your day-to-day is reasonably predictable and things usually go the way you expect them to, even a small thing out of the ordinary can catch you off-guard.

Motherhood is a 24/7 job...
