You Know You’re a Mom When

Guys, I have found my momma soul sister. She is funny, real, and a down-to-Earth mom like me. Her name is Martikka. Here’s how she describes herself: “I’m a mom to one busy little girl. Love tattoos, british tv and dyi crafts. My blog is about my experiences on motherhood unfiltered and unapologetic. Oh and I’m from Canada.” We worked together on this blog post to bring our fellow moms a good laugh. Check her out at tea with teeks .
