Someone once told me that being a mom is the hardest job you’ll ever have, but it’s also the most rewarding. Now that my daughter is three, I have had many hard days (more since she turned three) but have had so many more wonderful days (thank goodness!). Because of the hard days, it’s no wonder why women across the world have started blogging…to share their experiences, ask for help, or to help others. I have received lots of great information from these women and thought I would pass along some of the more helpful Texas “mommy” blogs to you.
