  • 3 Ways I Embrace The (Mom) Geek In Me

    If someone told me five years ago that I’d be driving a minivan, I wouldn’t have thought they were crazy. Honestly, I learned how to drive in my parents’ minivan and it was the most comfortable vehicle we had growing up. But that’s not the only thing I love about being a mom. In fact, I probably enjoy being a mom way too much. I love doing silly things with our boys and keeping them entertained with just about anything.
