Fueling the Machine

It’s week 2 of being a Mamavation Mom, and woah do I feel some major differences. First, I feel better all around. I’m still tired (remember, I have a 2 month old), but I have energy. That seems contradictory, but it’s completely true. When I’m climbing the stairs around 2 am, I find that there’s…

Learning How to Feed Myself
