Prepping For Back To School With A Permanent Impact

    Everyone that knows me also knows that I hate back to school, I miss my kids way too much to get excited about the whole thing and my anxiety almost always takes over this time of year. I like to find ways to communicate with them and remind my boys that I am with them even when I am not because the truth is, it makes a mama feel better – selfish I know but it gets me through those long school days. You name it, I have…

Celebrity Mom Moments We Can All Relate To!

This mother’s day all I want is to relate to those beautiful people walking the malls, strolling with their kids to the park and those perfect women that we see in the spotlight. I’ve always imagined that their lives would be somewhat just as annoying, chaotic and busy as mine so I searched the internet to find these relate-able¬†moments from some really awesome and real life moments – brought to you by the celebs themselves! #momrealness #neverendingpileofdishes ūüėĒ A post shared by Jessica Alba (@jessicaalba) on Aug 19, 2012 at…

Bridging The Gap Between Teen’s and Parents

Seems that having a 10 year old has certainly made me think about the future ahead when it comes to communication – especially lately. I’ve been lucky so far to have a child who is super open and honest about the ups and downs he’s been experiencing in his little life circle thus far. What happens in a few years when that circle grows and his own thoughts on life evolve further? Will he be as honest as he has always been, ¬†am I being naive to think that he’s…

Neutralizing Gender Equality In The Toy World – When Will Barbie Get It?

I was compelled to reason with a mother’s emotional post recently and I think that it should be shared with good reason to urge toy companies to rethink the way they market toys today. Scrolling though mommy groups on Facebook, I often do not stop and read the lengthy ones, but this one was different because quite simply it was written almost as if I myself had written it. The authors words and heart felt emotion is something I have related to for the last 10 years of my first…

Raising Independent Children – We Can All Learn From New Dad Russell Brand

_____________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ There is no denying that I have sort of an intillectual love affair with Mr Russell Brand, when I hear him speak I am mesmerized by his genius and overall presence. However, recently he has been both criticized and praised for some words he said about how he will be raising his newest addition, and once again I have stars in my eyes and a heart that has turned to utter mush. During a recent interview on The Jonathan Ross Show, Russell has admitted¬†that through his fiancee’s pregnancy…

Birthday Gifting Made Easy! Poppit Packs Have Arrived!

_____________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ So your child was invited to a birthday, and naturally you have NO idea what to get him or her because in today’s society technology rules. Let’s face it, you can’t buy the kid an iPad so what do you do? Search endlessly for something that you will not have to return later on, or in my case settle for a gift card (how boring). I hate being that parent that sends a gift card with their child at birthday parties, because the joy of opening an actual…
