Tales From the Trenches

Sometimes parenting is crazy hard. It’s definitely not always that way and clearly most of it is amazing (or people wouldn’t keep doing it) but sometimes you need a friend to listen to your horror stories and commiserate. That idea, that listening to someone else’s stories about parenting and sharing our own, is the germ that created Tales from the Trenches, our series about how hard and crazy parenting can sometimes be.
