I know you're a modern mom who cares about her family, has a great sense of style and loves to have fun. We already have so much in common. Don't miss a post and be sure to sign up for blog updates!
Do your kids roll their eyes and complain when they find out you just opened your own account on Instagram, Snapchat or VSCO?
No doubt you’re feeling pretty proud and tech-savvy because you finally figured out what a hashtag is, how to send and receive a snap, or add a filter that gives you bunny ears or a flower crown? At least I know I was!
Last month, I saw my dermatologist and received some concerning news. After carefully surveying my skin, she paused when she found a mole on the side of my face near my ear. She asked me if I had ever noticed it before, noting that it would be difficult to see while looking in a mirror. My husband said it had been there for as long as he’d known me.
Leave it to your teenager to be brutally honest with you. “You’re slackin’ on the blog there Mom,” my oldest daughter said the other day. Imagine!!
Hey y’all! (said with a Canadian accent). The countdown is on…we are packing our bags and moving on in just a couple of weeks. We will soon call Calgary, Alberta home…again. It’s been an emotional few weeks as we packed up our house, had the last day of school and watched the moving truck leave our neighborhood for the last time.
I can still remember leaving a note in my mother’s bathroom informing her I got my period. I don’t know why I was so embarrassed to tell her in person. I guess, despite having two older sisters, we just didn’t talk about it much back then. And I don’t think we were the only ones.
Family photos stress me out!! If you watch the show Modern Family, you might remember the episode where Claire spends the whole day worrying about everybody wearing white. She’s so worried they’re going to get their white outfits dirty before the photos even start.
I finally found one. Standing in line at the post office, I saw a small green heart sitting on the counter staring up at me.
I’d heard of the Peyton Heart Project and their efforts to spread small knitted hearts around the world, but I hadn’t been lucky enough to see one yet.
My daughter’s swim team held its annual banquet last weekend. It’s the one night of the year when they ditch the swim suits and get dressed up to celebrate the hard work and achievements of the past season.
Swimming is an amazing sport, and competitive swimming trains true athletes. I’m continually impressed with the discipline, athleticism and mental toughness it takes to be a competitive swimmer.
What if your daughter couldn’t go to prom, or didn’t want to go, because she didn’t have a dress. Maybe you couldn’t afford to buy it. Maybe just paying the bills, keeping food on the table and dealing with unexpected expenses has already got you strapped?
