By | Mother's Day, Smart Infinity | No Comments

I have been away from my Mom for almost 5 weeks and my kids for 4 weeks and because everyone is busy we really fail to check on each other, reply to texts or call.  But no matter what, I always text my kids even if they do not reply – even my Mom! haha!!  After all the nag means I love you :-)  Super love the new campaign of Smart
