I Don’t Want Life to Go Back to Normal

Every day I hear the question asked. It might be from a friend, or on Facebook, or in the media: "When will life go back to normal?" People are sick of coronavirus. People are sick...

What I Learned in the First 100 Days of Kindergarten

A year ago, filling out those kindergarten forms seemed like the most daunting task in the world. Little did I know registration was the easy part! Even with the tough changes we've felt in the first 100 days of kindergarten, I am so excited to already have experienced all the positive ways she's growing and discovering and becoming. And, yes, parenting is a series of letting-go moments, but I can't wait to see what's next.

I’m Not Always Mom of the Year (and That’s OK)

Some days are easier parenting days than others. Some weeks fly by with a wonderful syncing of energy, listening, and fun. Some hours are spent crying in the corner, worrying you've scarred your smaller beings forever. Some days we are singing, hugging, and playing with our sweet little ones. Other days we are that mom in the hoodie and sweatpants, chasing after her kids running wildly in opposite directions.

Giving Thanks for Dirty Diapers

I am so thankful for my amazing daughters, my loving and supportive husband, and my community. I am so grateful for the laughter, the songs, and the hugs that are constant in my life. And I am thankful for... dirty diapers.

Saying No to the Bento Box

The fact is, this isn't about bento box at all. This is about the constant pressures of motherhood, the constant fear that we are not providing the best for our children, and the constant battle of social comparison. To me, the bento box encapsulates the constant striving for perfection. And, the fact is, I'm done striving for perfection. I'm striving to be perfectly fine.

3 Favorite Fall Soups :: An Instant Pot Recipe Roundup

All of a sudden, the school year has begun, the leaves are starting to change, and I'm putting on a sweater. This is the time for apple picking, for yard clean up, and for fall soups. Yes, soup! As the days start getting shorter and the temperatures start dipping, I find nothing more comforting than a bowl of soup. And as a mom of two trying to get dinner on the table after a day at the office, there is nothing more comforting than my Instant Pot — my amazing set-and-forget, one-appliance wonder.
you can always say no - Boston Moms Blog

You Can Always Say No

It felt so good! It felt so empowering to stand up as a mom and as a woman who has been socialized to say yes. I even took it a step further and avoided giving in to the urge to come up with an excuse as to why we would not participate in an activity we'd been invited to. I felt proud as I helped my daughter make a choice between activities. It felt so affirming to hold true to what felt right for me and my family.

6 Tips and Tricks to Get Your Kids to Eat Their Veggies

Of course, if it's full empowerment you're going for, why not have your kids help plant and grow their own vegetables? They will feel so proud of their work that the V won't be for vegetable, it will be for victory! If gardening isn't in your future, a trip to the local farm or farmer's market might do the trick. Even choosing the produce at the grocery store will help them feel more invested.
