S&S Favs - Mommy Unfiltered

2/24/2021
Make sure the little ones are in a different room when you play this episode! We're talking all about cursing - should women (and especially moms) do it? Some people think it is unbecoming of a woman to throw out a f-bomb every now and then. What about the thought that only uneducated people curse (because they don't know other words).
