Hey girl, I’ll help you get your shit together. 😍
I finally started a bullet journal (mostly because my pal @bigflavors literally forced me to) and it CHANGED MY LIFE. No more scraps of paper scattered everywhere. Everything I need to remember to do is right behind Ryan Gosling’s face. 🙌🏼 .
Head to the blog for some fab organization tips from a bunch of bloggers who are way more organized than I am 🤣 #keepingitreal #imagrownupiswear

New addition to yesterday’s cardboard box fort 🤣 I consider this a win—it’s a line from her current favorite book, #thebookwithnopictures by @picturesoftext

Dear cardboard box, thanks for helping a mother out 👊🏻
Ellie decorated and played with this thing ALL day long. Note to self: stop spending money on toys.

Pretty soon I’m gonna be mistaken for a bear. 🤷🏼‍♀️ #HaikusforMoms // 3
Ever have one of those moments when your kid is upset or disappointed and you just want to rush in and fix it? You want to tell off a mean girl or rebuild something for them or help them climb to the top of the rock wall. I’m pretty sure all parents have. I try to remember to sit back and let them do those things themselves—to let them struggle a bit.
It’s not easy, but it definitely builds character. And it’s a little easier to teach them to keep trying when you let them see your own failures—and the failures of others—and watch as you get back up again. These five books are great examples of resilience that are perfect to turn to when your kids need a little helping bouncing back on their own. Head to the blog for more 📚🐛
We read so many fan-freakin-tastic kids books last year (like this one by @oliverjeffers that tugs at my momma heart strings a little bit more every time I read it). .
I put together a post with eight of our favorites that were published in 2017. Check it out so you have something to do while hibernating with your kids until April 🤪

90s hair, don’t care. 💃🏼
This week’s #majesticallyawkward podcast episode is about puberty—so I thought a fantastically awkward shot of me in all of my pubescent glory would be fitting. We share lots of awkward stories and discuss how things have changed now that kids have social media to contend with. Let us know what you think! 🎧

Closing out this shitastic year with an awesome case of pink eye 👌🏼 This little of set of photos saved me from sliding full on into the Negative Nellie zone though. There were definite bright spots in the middle of all of the suck. It’s a pretty solid reminder to take a step back and be grateful for what’s right in front of your face. 💕

#HaikusforMoms // 1
Inspired by @carolinecala’s (fantastic) Haikus for Former Lovers series, I’ve found myself writing Haikus for Moms when my brain isn’t cooperating with other writing projects I’m working on. It’s been a fun way to force myself to write less passively (if that makes sense) while still documenting moments in motherhood. Hopefully they’ll make you laugh and nod your head. If not and you hate them, just keep on scrolling 🤪

It’s holiday crunch time. 🤪🤯 Don’t forget to carve out a little time for yourself, like I did while working with @lincoln to test drive the 2018 #lincolnnavigator. I took that beauty down to the river and enjoyed a nice heated massage while I sat there drinking up the view. 🙌🏼 Head to the blog for more self care tips to help hold onto your sanity this holiday season. #ad

Ellie discovered a new #rebelgirls obsession tonight: @mardiniysra. She officially joined my girl’s list of favorites, right after Rosa Parks. 💪🏼💕

I’m pretty sure that a mom’s definition of a dream car is one that has enough space to let feuding children sit in completely different rows while you drive them around getting a warm massage. It doesn’t hurt when it’s really pretty too (swipe to see the exterior 😍)
We were thrilled to partner with @Lincoln this weekend and so sad to give the #2018lincolnnavigator back—the girls decided we could pretty much live in it 😂

The new planetarium in @libertysciencecenter is ENORMOUS (the biggest one in the Western Hemisphere!). We got a chance to check it out today and, in case you can’t tell, we were totally in awe ✨
