Just say NO to fruitcake and YES to cat pajamas (and other tips for the holidays)

December is a busy time of year (said EVERYONE EVERY year). Why can’t we JUST say NO more often? Wouldn’t that leave more time, space, and energy in our lives to say YES to the things (and people) that we care about? JUST say NO to: Comparing yourself to others.

T H A N K F U L F O R…..(bubble baths, diapers and preschool runs ​​) ​

  This Thanksgiving I am especially thankful for being a mom and for all the moms out there that do an amazing job to raise tiny humans.

I mean, did she even brush her teeth? -Someone must be having a bad day… -Is this going to be an extreme makeover story? Oh, I LOVE these! -How could she post something like this.

Bilingual Babies

It’s very important to me to teach my children Spanish. My parents understand English, but can’t speak it. So if I ever want my kids to have a close connection with my parents, I have to try and teach them as much Spanish as I can. Some days are easier than others–I often find myself irritated because my daughter says things like “no Spanish … Read More Bilingual Babies
