Dear Mama Who Feels Overwhelmed

From Wichita Moms Blog

Let me preface this by saying I have it all together approximately zero percent of the time. Even on days when I feel like I could conquer the world because we made it to bedtime without a massive derailment in our plans or attitudes (because toddlers), I still have times that I think, “I could have done that differently.”

Why I Appreciate My Mother-In-Law

From Knoxville Moms Blog

When my husband and I got married, we moved into the house beside his parents. We were excited and anxious to begin our lives, and little by little, as we moved furniture and painted walls, it all started to sink in: I’m living next door to my in-laws.


The Outtakes

From Charleston Moms Blog

Today was a mess of errands. Hither, there, and yonder. My youngest is potty training, so when we were at home he was naked, and when we went out he was in training pants. We carted the oldest to and from camps, got some groceries, met a guy about a thing, bought stamps and looked for chairs for the kitchen table (still looking).


Dear Moms, You Are Not Enough

From Alamo City Moms Blog

It’s the dog days of summer and to us moms, that means we’re knee deep in child tantrums, sweat-drenched attempts to get the kids in the car before we melt, and the ever-so-popular “I’m bored.” It also means you’re fairly accustomed to feeling like you might lose it at any given moment. But it’s those real life moments that need addressing. They rarely get the attention they deserve. Instead, they get tucked far back into our closet of mommy shame, masked by all kinds of things we think to communicate instead.

"Bad Moms" Love Their Kids, Too!

From Seacoast Moms Blog

I have two really fun mom friends who I spend a lot of time with. Between the three of us, we have eight kids under the age of seven! We hang together as often as possible because we need to converse with people who don’t whine when they talk and use a tissue instead of their shirt to wipe their nose. We are a perfect fit because, while we all love our kids and do our best for them, we are a far cry from the stereotypical PTA mom (and nothing against PTA moms–you guys rock it so that we don’t have to!)


5 Items To Pack When Traveling With A Child

From North Phoenix Moms Blog

I had the opportunity to go on a family vacation this summer with my son and husband. We traveled by car, for about 6 hours, and were gone for 3 days. As this is our first baby, we weren’t really sure exactly what we needed, and ended up bringing a lot of stuff we probably didn’t need. After this trip, I comprised a list of 5 Items I will Never Forget to Pack When Traveling With a Baby, some of which may not be on your radar, but will definitely make your trip more enjoyable.

Raising The Cautious Child

From Madison Moms Blog

My 3-year-old son is extremely cautious. I’m not talking, like, hesitantly dipping his toes in the water before entering a wading pool cautious. I’m talking running in the opposite direction SCREAMING at the suggestion of approaching a wading pool cautious.

Flaunt Your Mom Bod: Swimsuit Edition

From Memphis Moms Blog

One of the things we can probably all agree on is the fact that swimsuit shopping would be a very effective form of torture. And it only gets worse after you buy the swimsuit, because then you get to wear it in public. It wasn’t always that way, though.
