NJ Mom of 2 boys. Social media enthusiast. Blogger. Freelance marketing. I love cats. Ds Advocate. Love rock music, I'm currently listening to lots of Digital Summer and Oleander.
My name is Valerie, but I go by valmg online.
I am a mother to 2 boys – TJ, a 17 year old, and CJ, a 14 year old with Down Syndrome.
I am a Jersey girl. I have three younger brothers, all of whom have children.
I HATE the misuse of the word retarded. I take it personally and find it very offensive.
