Today’s post is for the moms out there that find themselves living in doubt. It’s an experience that happened a couple of months ago when our family was vacationing in Disney World for my son’s 5th birthday. I hope that it will serve as a reminder to not underestimate the power that we have to encourage (or discourage) our fellow moms… It started out as nothing more than a stubborn whine, easily drowned out by the swarms of folks making their way through Frontierland.

Do outdoor adventures with your family ever feel like this picture? If so, you are so not alone. These sort of pictures are not the ones that usually show up on social media.
