Hope you will come back for Saturday's Songs for the SoulSunday's Comic Strips & next week's posts which will be focused on why mothers need to keep dreaming as role models for their children. This will be the topic of a talk I will be giving at the “New” Motherhood?: Evolving Policies, Practices, and Families Conference on MAY 2, 3, 4 at The Museum of Motherhood in New York City. My presentation will be on Thursday, May 2 at 3 PM. If you will be in NYC please come & meet me! Have a wonderful weekend!
