Hello hello! Since I love reading posts like these from other bloggers, I hope you indulge me as I share my own. I may look a little scatterbrained, but c’est la vie. Have a great week, friends!
- I could not stop laughing when I read this. I wouldn’t change our family vacations for the world, but this post nailed it on the head.
- Since I assumed the role of mom, making plans can be a monumental task. Once plans are made, I try my darnedest to stick to them. I can count on my hands the number of times I’ve bailed, but it is typically because one or both of my children are sick. This article really highlights how things have changed in the age of the smartphone. I love the convenience of technology, but there truly are downsides.
- Bounce back? HA! This video is hilarious, raw, and completely relatable for any new mom out there.
- Speaking of motherhood (and the journey to it), I stumbled on this post from 2016 that really resonated with me. It is worth a read to prepare how you might support a friend going through a miscarriage.
- YES to this article about summer camp. I grew up going to Camp Lakeview, nestled in the heart of Southern Indiana. I truly found my footing as a young adult there and gained the confidence I needed, outside of the confines of my small town. (I also made some wonderful lifelong friends there!) I cannot wait to send our children in a few years — mostly so I can live vicariously through their own experiences. I’m only partially kidding.
- If you’ve read any blog this week, there was probably chatter of the Nordstrom Sale. I was pumped because they actually included a pair of my favorite jeans (with a nice high rise to hold in all of that mom stuff without looking terribly unfashionable). I did pick up a new work coat and I finally snagged one of these cardigans. My favorite ‘going out’ leggings and easy top from last year’s sale were also included. Since you’ve probably been inundated, I am not going to devote a post to the sale, but I will share my favorites here.
- This piece was a Mother’s Day find, but it is still worth sharing. My mother was equally stunning before and after children, but there are a few photos I cherish of her in her carefree and childfree days. I shed some happy tears with this one.
- In case you missed it, I shared a post this week on how to prep for your child’s first day of daycare. As a seasoned daycare mom (more than two years in), this is the type of post I wish I had when we started back in March 2015.
