Cool Moms unite: it’s about to be game time aka the weekend. Sip that extra cup of coffee and take a few minutes for yourself to get ready to be present for those littles under foot. They are the rhyme and reason to your purpose. You got this moms! #coolmomnotaregularmom #coffeebeforetalkie
At the end of the day, these are the people that drive me the craziest but whom I love the fiercest. This job we have as moms is so hard. Ugh, like down on the ground ugly crying hard. I let the nonsense get the best of me too often. And I fail them regularly. But I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I wasnt meant to just be a mom. I was meant to be THEIR mom. And so were you. Stand proud in your role today. Even afer your mess ups. You are the right one for the job, I promise. #momlife #momoftheyear
There’s a million things on “the list” today and I don’t feel like I’m doing any of them well. I’m doing my best to remain focused on thr fact that my kids and my family ARE my purpose, and not just getting IN THE WAY of my purpose. The struggle is real, and it would be nice if I could just get a few more of my brain cells back so that I could feel like I’m firing on all cylinders. Anyone relate?? #momlife #momstrugglingwell
Lets talk family dinner. Do you do it? How often? Put the food aspect aside, how do you use that time at the table? Conversation questions? Is there a regular cadence to your family meals? Let’s share our tips and tricks with each other because baseball/sports are taking over and thus no fam dinners. 🙃 #crowdsourcing #familydinner #okayestmomever #modernfarmhouse #farmhousetable
Raise your hand if you’re excited for the Royal Wedding this weekend?! @courtneydefeo had a fun idea for all the girl moms to throw a mini royal viewing party, complete with silly pomp and circumstance for the mini princesses in your home. We’re not a super big princess fam, but I’ve got a little boy who loves the pomp and circumstance just like his mama. It’s our jobs as moms to be students of our children. But they like different things than me you’re thinking! Ugh, I know - I’m with ya. (ie you like quiet and they like noise 🙃). But I know that the way to their hearts is getting to know who THEY are, and calling that out in them. Meeting them right where they’re at and letting them know they are loved. Sounds like how we want to be treated right? // What is ONE THING that you can do today to enter into your kids’ world? What do they always want you to do that just goes against everything you WANT to do? Is there something silly that you can do this week to win some points with your kids?
Teacher Appreciation week 2.0 continued this week. Assignment was to bring 2 stems for my daughter’s teachers. 8pm last night I got a text from one of my tribe asking if I had gotten it yet. Clearly she’s still getting to know me because, no, I definitely had not. #okayestmomever So what did we do? Divide and conquer. Her husband would stop and get the flower stems and I would anchor pick up and drop off of the kids. Teamwork makes the dream work people. There’s no reason we ALL need to be going to the store for 2 stems! Divide and conquer with your people AS MUCH and AS OFTEN as you can! Carpool to baseball, trade play dates, potluck dinner - seriously just get your people together and do life. It’s so much more efficient and fun. I looked like I had my ish together today for the teachers, when in reality, I didn’t. 😂🙃 Also, next time, I’ll just Venmo the teacher so she can get some real flowers. 😂 // How do you divide and conquer in your mom world?
