Hi Everyone,

Welcome to ParentTalk’s REAL MOM MOMENTS!!!

In this episode, Heather talks how grateful she is for her friends and family that went above and beyond to help her out when she recently put her neck out and Genevieve shares about how she had to switch last minute to hosting Nathan’s first birthday party inside when it unexpectedly decided to rain. Again help from friends and family had this Puppy themed party go off without a bark! 

As Mom’s, we think that we have to do so much on our own but it really does take a village!! It’s always OK to ask for help! ❤️
