Dear Maggie – May 16, 2024

Maggie’s got big plans over the Summer – and they involve TV. Not watching it – being on it!

Dear Maggie – May 9, 2024

This week, Maggie reaches out to rescue a school Mom with a titanic dilemma – she’s sunk when it comes to handling more in May (and no, it’s not because of all of this rain!)
