The Pregnant Mom’s Non-Alcoholic Cocktail


  It’s Labor Day Weekend annnnnnnd, guess who is NOT in labor? ^^^ This girl ^^^  I’m “celebrating” … I think. One, because I’m not due until Friday. So, it’s not like I actually expected to be in labor. In fact, I’ve gone a few days late with every baby so I’m fully expecting a 41 […]
