The Girl From On This Day

Like many of my fellow millennials, you have probably been “lucky” enough to have your entire adulthood immortalized on the internet. AOL Chatrooms and MySpace anyone? If you had to have a college email address to create a Facebook account you can relive the best, and unfortunately the worst, of your memories. As ill advised […]

When Mom Life Feels Lonely

When you’re a mom, especially to littles, you’re never really alone. Even bathroom breaks aren’t solo experiences, and if you think for a moment that it is, the silence is interrupted by a tiny hand pounding on the door.

Giving Up Social Media

The honest truth is, most parents I know – scratch that – most PEOPLE I know could do a much better job at being more present in their lives. I’m sure most of us have witnessed this scene before: you’re out to dinner, and at the table next to you, the entire family is on […]

What’s Your Mommy Brand?

I’d like to invite you to take a few minutes today to think about brands. What are some brands you know and trust? As I look around my daughter’s playroom, I see brands like Lego, Step2, Fisher Price, and Melissa & Doug. These are just some of the brands that help my daughter learn and […]
