Netflix Series: “Workin’ Moms”

I’m admittedly late to this Canadian Netflix series, which is a bit odd when you think about it because I am one. Chalk it up to a streaming queue about 3.8 miles long, and very limited time in which to actually sit down and watch. Because – say it with me – I am a …

The sharing sesh took place not during a one-on-one, nor did it happen via “private” camera commentary. This time, our courageous, no-bullshit warrior, Katie Thurston, cultivated …
