The Mamanista’s Mamas

Mom Life

Moms are special for so many reasons. On the one hand, no one will ever love you quite like your mom does (she is, after all, probably the only person who has wiped your nose with her sleeve). On the other hand, no one can throw shade at you quite like your mom and get away with it…    “Oh, honey, I think your metabolism is starting to slow down.”    “I’m sorry, I think I really messed you up.”  …
