Parenthood is full of new experiences! It’s so crazy to think that most things we do without a thought are first time experiences for your children. Like seeing a movie in a theater, for example. We took our daughter (who is almost two years old) to see CoCo! (It’s such an amazing movie!). We had a great experience and so I wanted to share some tips, that worked for us, that will hopefully make your experience go as smoothly as possible as well.
At our house, we read books nearly every night. Our daughter loves to read! We love finding new books each season to read to our daughter. Here are a few of our favorite books that we’re reading this Holiday season. They are fun, festive and educational in some way!
Freshly Picked, the masterminds behind the adorable and stylish children’s moccasins that all Mamas obsess over, just gave us all yet another reason to love them. They just announced that they’ve collaborated with none other than DISNEY; one of the most iconic brands in the world, to bring us one very magical collection. You better believe our daughter will be rockin’ some of these adorable shoes at the Parks this season!
Balancing the demands of motherhood, a career and being a wife is no joke. I have no idea what the heck I’m doing most days, but that’s what makes life interesting. There are times, though, when I start to feel overwhelmed and I need to take time to regroup and revitalize so that I can be fully present with the people in my life. I heard that going to a sauna is a good place for that. So I tried one.
There are so many resources that help walk you through pregnancy and early stages of becoming a new mom. I put together a list of the best apps for new moms and moms-to-be that I used that will help ease some worries and concerns during your pregnancy and postpartum.
Did you know that a lot of toys that children play with today are made with harmful chemicals? Luckily, we can choose to make better decisions for our own health, for the health of our families and for good ole’ Mother Earth.
As you all know Mother’s Day sneaks up on us and next thing you know you’re last minute shopping for something meaningful/useful for your special lady. It’s time to prepare to pamper and spoil our Mamas. Here’s a roundup of some of my favorite Mother’s Day gift ideas this year…
I recently visited Blown Away Beauty Bar in Laguna Niguel and received my first blowout EVER. Blown Away Beauty Bar is extremely courteous of your time and always wants to ensure that while you’re there, you’re being pampered, you feel relaxed and leave the salon looking and feeling empowered. I can definitely say that that’s EXACTLY how I felt while there and when I left.
With all the craziness and chaos in the world today, I often think about our daughter and how we hope to raise her to be accepting of all people and to know her identity rooted in Christ. We also hope that while she’s growing up and starting to build deeper relationships with friends, that she’s known to be loyal, someone who’s selfless, and always putting the needs of others before her own. I’m so grateful to have found a children’s book series that points our kids to God in a compelling way.
Netflix UK recently announced that Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is now streaming. I LOVE that show. I mean who doesn’t?? I still know the theme song by heart! While I go bask in my 90s nostalgia, here are some of the funniest Fresh Prince of Bel Air gifs that perfectly describe some of the craziness that is MOM LIFE.
