You are ready to lose your mind. These temper tantrums are driving you crazy!
I’ve been there! Here is the simple method that we started using on our kids.
Six months into our first child’s life, my husband and I couldn’t come up with a single idea for a date night beyond dinner and a movie. We would ask ourselves, “What did we do back when we had free time and full nights of sleep???” Cue input from the Whimsicle Moms and my guru sister-in-law herself: how about a murder mystery dinner! A creative date with no planning on my part? I was sold!
It’s almost Thanksgiving everyone!
This time of year is widely known as a time for family gatherings and food. Lots of food!
We are all anticipating the classic turkey, mashed potatoes, and pie. As well as looking forward to gathering around a big table and remembering all the wonderful things and people we have to be grateful for.
But it is also one of the busiest times of the year. It’s easy to forget – until the last possible moment – that you promised to bring a side dish to dinner!
Struggling with making your blog work for you? Know that you are not alone.
Welcome to my monthly income reports where I give the real story of building a successful blogging business! It’s not immediate page views and cash flow. But if you use the right strategy and surround yourself with successful bloggers, it will happen.
Here’s my blogging life in October.
It’s easy to get lost in motherhood.
There are endless books to read, gadgets to buy, places to go and activities to do. So much that you forget what you read, bought, visited and did before that tiny, beautiful creature entered your life. You go from being Kate or Lindsay to being “Piper’s mommy” or “Brady’s mom.”
And, even though parenthood changes you in some of the most amazing ways, the you that existed before is still there. You still have desires, needs, dreams and preferences. You still need certain things to be the best version of yourself and yes, those things have absolutely nothing to do with your children.
If you don’t make your own health, happiness, and wellbeing a priority, then it’s pretty hard to be the mom I know you want to be.
So, let’s all agree that the absolute best thing we can do for our children and families is to fill our own tank!
Shopping. Shouldn’t there be rules for buying clothes?
Because here’s the thing about shopping for clothes, it can really go up or down. Am I happy with the weight I’m at? Then shopping is a knockout-good time. Don’t know what I’m looking for? Well, then we get into the gray territory.
When I don’t know what I want, I tend to buy anything. I’ll fall for all the latest trends, regardless if I’m really in love with them or if they even fit in my current wardrobe. Then, a week later, I’ll have major shopping regret when I find that not only does the garment not really fit me but it doesn’t go with anything else in my closet.
So, how can you tell if you should actually buy the clothes you like?
