Confessions Of A Kindergarten Teacher

From Fort Worth Moms Blog

It’s that time of year again! Summer is in full swing. Vacations, long days at the pool, and laid back schedules have become the norm. With each passing day, we are inching closer and closer to the beginning of another school year. Whether you are a “cheers” or a “tears” kind of mama at the prospect of sending your little one to kindergarten, one thing all future kinder-mamas lose sleep over is wondering whether or not their kids will be ready for their very first year of school.


I Don't Want To Be An Angry Mom

From Scottsdale Moms Blog

I’ll admit it. My kids periodically push me to the point of yelling. I don’t mean to reach the point of anger, but I occasionally lose my cool. These aren’t my proudest parenting moments. I do my absolute best to calmly explain why their undesirable behavior is wrong and discipline them accordingly, but toddlers aren’t exactly the most reasonable people on Earth.


12 Things To Do Before Your Due Date

From Houston Moms Blog

For those expecting mommies out there, there are probably lots of things running through your mind and on your to-do list as your due date approaches. Some are necessary, some not so much. Of course everyone wants to have the nursery in Pinterest-perfect shape, but the reality is that the baby probably won’t even sleep in there right away. On the other hand, there are a number of tasks {like install the car seat} that do need to get done prior to d-day.


Momcation: Taking The Vacation You Deserve

From Albuquerque Moms Blog

I’m taking a Momcation. Why? Because I deserve to have a vacation for just me, to pamper myself with the one thing I don’t get enough of while being a stay-at-home-mom: time. Time to myself. Time to eat my HOT meal. And to read my book. Time to work on my book I’m writing, time to take a long shower or bath. And to lay out on the beach. Time to shop and walk and sleep in. Time for myself and no one else. Practice saying this a few times: I deserve time off for me.


My Secret To A Silent Car With Kids

From Twin Cities Moms Blog

I love car rides. I mean, I LOVE car rides with my kids! It’s just a pair of yoga pants and Netflix short from being my happy place. But it wasn’t always such a pleasure cruise. Car rides used to be a mobile mommy prison where my kids (4 years old and almost 2 years old) finally had me cornered like a terrified animal. Then they would pummel me with question after question after question. And then the same questions over and over and over again.


How To Stop Apologize For Being Yourself

From Quad City Moms Blog

When I’m in a situation where I either need to say no or set a boundary, I have a bad habit of dismissing myself. I don’t stop at just saying “no thank you.” In so many words, I basically go on to say “I’m not enough, I’m not sure what my problem is, I really need to get it together,” etc. As if there must be something inherently wrong with me because I’m not called to do everything everyone asks of me.


Love Languages and Lost Sight

From New Orleans Moms Blog

On a very rare date night last week, we saw Gleason. In case you’ve been living under a rock, it’s the film about former Saints player Steve Gleason’s battle with ALS. About 2/3 of the way through the movie, there’s a really powerful and gut-wrenching scene between Steve and his wife, Michel. I won’t spoil it for you, but essentially Steve tells her that he feels like she doesn’t see him anymore and asks what he can do better to make her see him. She responds that it’s not him, it’s on her to do better.

Back To School: 6 Ways To Up Your School Lunch Game

From Raleigh Moms Blog

It’s that time of year again. Time to shop for this year’s school supplies and snazzy back to school outfits. A new school year often marks a new beginning for everyone, not just the kids. It’s a great time to shake up old routines: waking up 15 minutes earlier so mornings go that much smoother, packing backpacks at night, or even switching out last year’s standard rotation of school lunches.
