For many, 2021 has been a challenging year, following an even harder year.
While much of the stress and uncertainty of living in a pandemic has remained, there have been many bright spots in 2021. Most kids are back in school (hallelujah!), there is a vaccine for ages 5 and up, and many of us are able to see loved ones in person again for the holidays.
The mission of Des Moines Mom continues to be creating a space for local moms to hear and be heard without judgment. Whether you have young kids or school-aged kids, work outside the home or stay home, are single or divorced, we are all just doing our best to raise our kids with love and take care of ourselves!
