I read those and think well, damn, what’s left, then?  Keep posting your food, babies, selfies, coffee, shoes, outfits, your legs at the beach or pool, pregnant bellies, flashback pics, pics of the sky, the weather near […]

Cool, Protective Youth Soccer Gear


I might have actually snorted when a new soccer mom made the comment that the reason her child was playing soccer was because it’s a team sport but not a contact sport.
