mommyshorts How awesome is my new mousepad? It's Harlow looking at me with disdain every time I get on my computer. "Really? You are on that thing AGAIN???" I'm having fun with @Walgreens photo gifts on the blog today + a giveaway (link in profile). #sharelifeshappy 3d

mommyshorts Just want to give a big thanks to @landsend for inspiring my family to plant a tree in our yard and teaching Mazzy that pink can exist in nature and not just in her My Little Pony collection. We picked a Magnolia! Can't wait to watch it grow. Follow @landsend who has planted 1 million trees through the National Forest Foundation. And that doesn't include mine! #Earthday 🌳 4d

mommyshorts This past weekend, Mike, Mazzy, Harlow and I planted a tree in our yard to grow up with our family. Guess what kind of tree the girls picked! Hint: It's pink. All the details and a big @landsend giveaway for an $250 gift card on the blog today (link in profile). Happy Earth Day! #IAmLandsFriendly 5d

mommyshorts If you were wondering what I was doing in Minneapolis last week, this is me actually baking in the @bettycrocker test kitchen. Don't worry, I didn't break anything. Thanks for trusting me with a knife and an oven, @generalmills! 6d

mommyshorts Have your kids ever asked questions you weren't sure how to answer? Today I'm featuring Heather and her very curious 5yo son Warren in my blog series with @go_faar about establishing honest and open communication with your kids. Heather has three kids she adopted through foster care and she talks about fielding questions from her 5yo about adoption, special needs, race, alcohol, and the permanence of family. Plus, Responsibility.org is giving helpful tips on how to respond to your kids even when you don't have all the answers (link in profile). #convoswithyourkids Photos by @RaquelLangworthy 7d
  •   flutterby_33 Yep. It hit home and inspiring is an epic understatement!!!! :) 7d
  •   lafferty_nuthouse As a fellow foster mom we have had a lot of similar conversations thanks for shedding some light on the foster family community . So many of us are normal and appreciate the positive stories about other foster families !! 7d
  •   allybird7 My 3 year old asked me what I like about myself out of no where one day and it was the most eye opening/horrifying thing that I don't think I'll ever forget. I couldn't answer her and I was so disappointed in myself. I have spent the last year changing that. My mom being adopted is one of the things that I love. 7d
  •   nolegirl1974 Thanks @mommyshorts for letting me and Warren be a part of your project!!! We had an absolute blast! Warren LOVED meeting @raquellangworthy (I think he's talked about her nonstop since she left)! I'm so glad you did this series with @go_faar on #convoswithyourkids because some of this stuff just doesn't come naturally and we all need a little help fielding the tough stuff! Warren sends hugs!!! 7d
  •   nolegirl1974 @lafferty_nuthouse I understand!!! I wish more people understood we're normal families with normal lives (sometimes chaotic but still normal)!!! 7d
  •   ashleywabbit God 6d
  •   ashleywabbit Oops^^ 6d
  •   go_faar What a beautiful family!! Thanks for letting us work with you to spark these inspiring conversations. 6d
