Megan Rice wants to keep you guessing on just what she and her family look like, here’s what you need to know about her, in her own words: “Hello, moms! I am so happy to share with you some of my experiences and lessons learned as I have loved my six children.

Yes, but everyone’s busy doing something, right? I choose momming! In my spare moments, I like reading, watching sports, and enjoying peace and quiet.
