Sometimes motherhood is magical, and sometimes I find myself saying things like “who put my credit card in the nut butter jar?” For those days, laughter is definitely the best medicine – especially when served with these fudgy brownies. (And an eggnog latte of course . . . or maybe some adrenal support tea!)
Some of these quotes are funny, some are meaningful, and some are encouraging. I hope you enjoy.
