When my husband and I were first married, it was adventure filled bliss! We could travel at the drop of a hat, explore new places and eateries, catch a show whenever we wanted…and then ALL of that changed.

It was like a switch flipped, and there were no more impromptu dates, and there was certainly no last minute secretly planned trips to destinations unknown.

Lessons I Learned From My Anxious Child

So there we were. Our son standing on the edge of the pool, about to jump in, and it hit. He was having a total meltdown! I mean full on trembling, tears, snot…LOSING IT! I was helplessly watching my anxious child.

Now, he had jumped into the pool countless times before, but somehow this time was different. He was absolutely full of anxiety and fear over the thought of jumping.

I wish that I could tell you how patient I was, and that I deserved an award for being an awesome mommy during that moment. Unfortunately, that is not the case, but I did learn something from the experience… so there is that! 😉

4 Things All Moms Should Be Wearing

We have all seen it…the LISTS. You know the ones? The lists that tell women, in particular moms, what they should no longer be wearing.

There was a recent list I read, ‘what women over 30 should never wear’, and honestly it just made me sad.

This list included items such as graphic tees (ain’t nobody taking my #MomLife tee from me!), and hoop earrings. What the what? Hoop earrings??? Seriously, a staple of my wardrobe.

So with all the lists telling us what not to wear, I thought it would be a nice idea to list some things I think all moms SHOULD be wearing, on the DAILY! 🙂
