Rugrats on Oils

Growing through what I'm going through.

I'm a mama to three beautiful children- Hawk, Scout and Saylor Verity. I've attained my co-occurring counseling master's degree and plan to return to work as a mental health counselor for postpartum mothers, once my children are in grade school.

I want to start this post off with a little experiment. 

Name 5 things you can confidently say you like about yourself. 

Ask your child, five things he or she likes about his or herself.

DO IT. 

If you're like me, you couldn't with 100% confidence, name those 5 things abou...
