That’s right, ladies. It’s time to fight back. Enough with the pressure to look sexy and “together” mere months (or years!) after having your kids. Love your damn self the way you are! Comfy pants all the way. This all began with Emily-Jane from How to Survive A Sleep Thief, and the call was taken […]
Hey! So I feel incredibly lucky to be getting so many posts put up by HuffPost Canada. They are amazingly supportive, and it’s wonderful to know some of the pieces I’ve written with important messages are getting seen by more people. That’s really what it’s all about, for me.
