I'm super excited to be having a girls night with some "school moms" soon. This time we're going out to have some dinner and then laugh our butts off. Not because we're laughing at the ridiculous things our kids have done, but because we are essentially laughing at ourselves. We are going to see three amazing moms that I'm sure we will relate, all too well, to. My Name Is Not Mom is coming to Vancouver, BC on May 27th! My Name Is Not Mom is a comedy show about the hilarious journey through motherhood with internet sensations Tiffany Jenkins, Meredith Masony and Dena Blizzard.
