Tech Mommy: Important Life Saving Apps for Moms

Given all that has been happening in our world from major hurricanes to bombings, we momma tigers just want to cling tightly to our cubs to keep them safe. However, as the leaders of our tribe, we must keep a positive outlook on life and teach our children to see the good in our world like all those who helped each other in the brave city of Boston.  But, it never hurts to be prepared and to teach our children to do the same:
