I remember how excited I was when I took my oldest son to go shopping for soccer gear.  I was officially a soccer mom.  Brian was super excited about his “chin” guards, new shoes and ball that he could kick all around the yard.  He was even more excited when he got his official uniform! […]...

It’s hard to believe it’s been 6 years since I started blogging at The Mommy-Files.  One of the reasons I started blogging was to connect with other moms online who might be going through similar things in motherhood as I was.  It was also a place for me to share my thoughts, feelings, experiences and photos of […]...
