It’s OK to be a Selfish Mom



Being a selfish Mom is way better than you think. I promise you won't feel bad about it. | TheMamaDen.comOk, hear me out. As moms we’re ALWAYS giving. Giving to our husbands, our kids, our homes, our jobs, our friends and so on.¬†At some point you have to be a bit selfish and give back to yourself! In the past 18 months I cannot tell you how many times I haven’t done something for me in order to do something for B, Camille or home.
