While we love to talk about all things motherhood, the sweet and imperfect included, we thought: "What kind of friends are we if we don't share the useful and practical information too?" So, with that in mind, we've created The Source as a page that lists all our favorite go-to people, places, and things in Los Angeles, Paducah, and nearby areas in case you're ever in need of a recommendation or seeking a family-friendly guide to our 'hoods. Please feel free to ask us any questions or let us know about your faves too, so readers can enjoy a comprehensive list of local resources. Enjoy!
