Tomorrow I Will Do Better

From Twin Cities Moms Blog

Tomorrow we won’t fight with him. My husband whispered those words to me as he came into our son’s bedroom. I was sitting in the rocking chair next to his bed watching him sleep. I sighed. I had just been having the same internal dialogue in my head.


10 Things A Family Dealing With Childhood Cancer Really Needs

From Oklahoma City Moms Blog

A few months ago, my 4 year old son was diagnosed with Burkitt’s Lymphoma. It was very unexpected as he has been really healthy in his short life. We were displaced for days at a time, juggling life between the hospital, home and work. We put all of our short and long-term plans on hold as we cleared our schedule to be with him at the hospital, and had a new way of life for a few months.


Social Media Favorites: Snapchat vs. Instagram

From Anaheim Moms Blog

Social media is all the rage right now – Instagram, Facebook, Periscope, Twitter, Snapchat, Pinterest, and the list goes on. Basically you name it, someone is using it. These days, people use the different social media channels for so many different things. Small business owners are using Instagram to show their items and run their businesses. Grandparents are using Facebook to see pictures of their grandkids.


I'm Supermom and I'm Not Sorry About It

From Sonoma County Moms Blog

I was having a casual conversation about birthday parties with some fellow moms. When my turn came to speak, I started gushing about my plans for my daughters upcoming 2nd birthday, to which one mom responded, “Oh. I forgot, you’re super mom.” The other moms giggled and I felt like the outcast.


The Long Road To Love

From Alamo City Moms Blog

I remember sitting at a large table in the bottom floor of the McNay crafting happily with my kids one day during Spring Break. Moments later I looked up to see a woman walking in the room with her own kids. We locked eyes and immediately recognized one another. There she was in the flesh. I had seen enough of her on Instagram—where she and my husband would exchange private messages, photos, and talk about how unhappy they were in their lives.


From Scared To Swimming With ISR

From St. Augustine Moms Blog

One Second. Not two, not three, one. One Facebook scroll, one check on your baby who just ate sand, one quick text to a friend. That’s all it takes for your child to go from being within your reach, within your line of vision, to being underwater and unable to breathe. I know that’s hard to hear. But believe me, it’s much harder to experience.


Time Out, Mom!

From Charleston Moms Blog

I am part of several “mom” groups on facebook and the consistent theme I keep hearing is how exhausted everyone is. Between playgroups, toilet training, carpool, making breakfast, lunch, dinner, cleaning, nursing, keeping teenagers alive, volunteering, working…(do I really need to continue this list) we assume our exhaustion is normal. I mean who wouldn’t feel exhausted after a day as mom – we have maxed ourselves out and our bodies are beginning to rebel.


10 New Emojis Moms Need

From Scottsdale Moms Blog

One of the most anticipated tech updates of 2015 was the introduction of new emojis (tacos!) for smartphone users. Emojis have quickly become a regular part of messaging lingo and like millions of text messaging enthusiasts I dove headfirst into trying out all of the new mini faces and icons. (hello unicorn!) As I was texting a fellow mama about an upcoming playdate, I realized that the emoji creators forgot about an entire group of heavy emoji users when they sat down to design their new graphics… moms.
