There are a lot of things that come to mind when someone says “Mom Life.” You have visions of messy buns, leggings, runs to Walmart, lots of coffee and wine and not enough sleep. “Mom Life” means working hard to provide for your family while still caring for everyone, and oftentimes, putting yourself last.
