Working Mums and Stay-At-Home Mums Have The Exact Same Day

The other day while talking with a friend who works full time and is a fantastic parent  about the ridiculousness of the so-called “Mummy Wars”, I realized that regardless of whether a mum is working out of the home or in the home, they are both essentially spending their day doing the same things. Below are 10 undeniable Ways Working Mums and Stay-At-Home Mums Have The Exact Same Day…  1.

Easter Crafts With Baker Ross

He is so aware of the world around him!   He knows his name and his home. He knows his routine and toys. He is brilliant! He rolled of the changing mat yesterday – it was on the floor. .
