It’s the last official weekend of Summer and I’m hardcore celebrating. And by hardcore celebrating, I mean lighting my @raedunn fall scented candles, binge watching Netflix and going to bed before 10pm. 🙌🏻 Remember when our nights didn’t even start until 10pm? I would dance all night, get back home with just enough time to shower and change before heading out to work. AND I could work a full 8 hours without ever feeling the fact that I hadn’t slept in more than 24 hours... Now I’m unable to function if someone wakes me up 15 minutes early. Getting old is awesome. .

It’s the last official weekend...

I read something the other day on Facebook that said that the song that was number 1 on your 14th birthday, defines your life. I googled it, excited to find a message, a sign (I’m a sucker for that sort of thing). Instead, I found it was “Cream” by Prince. 😐 Cream? What does that mean? Ice cream? Coffee creamer? 
So I looked it up... and read the lyrics. "Cream" was meant to mean “cream of the crop”. There are lyrics like “everything you do is success” and my favorite part... “Do your dance
Why should you wait any longer?
Take a chance
It could only make you stronger”  Message received, Prince. Message received. 
What song was number one on your 14th birthday?

This girl lost another tooth last week. I’ve been waiting for this toothless smile since she knocked her other one out last year. Unfortunately, it’s not going to last long because her adult tooth is already growing in 😭. (Zoom in to see) Yesterday I noticed both of her front-bottom teeth are peeking out behind her baby teeth too. Does anyone know how to slow down time. A button? A phone call? Maybe a time machine? My baby isn’t a baby anymore. Cue the tears. Have you celebrated any milestones with your kids recently?

I don’t get bouquets of flowers for no reason…. But I do appreciate the flowers that grow by our mailbox, like this one. And it made me realize something this morning.  I’m over it. 
I’m over comparing my life to other people’s lives on social media.
My house might not be as fancy. 
My wardrobe is not as expensive. 
I don't apply makeup as well or even at all most days.
I don’t have beautiful, long flowing hair.
I don’t drive a car that’s worth bragging about. 
We don’t go on lavish trips around the world. 
I don’t carry loads of money in designer handbags. 
Does that make me less of a person? 
Does that make me less of an influencer? 
No. It makes me a regular 40-something Mom who has chosen to open up and share our lives on social media.  It makes me someone who has built this hobby of photography and writing into a business that has solely supported my family for a year and a half. 
I’m proud of that. 
I’m proud that I’m not a follower.
I’m proud that I have worked hard for what I’ve achieved.
I’m proud of influencers like me who are unapologetically themselves.  What are you proud of? .

F O U R T...

It was just after Iyla's third birthday. She seemed to be on track, at least according to the pediatrician's checklist. She could follow instructions, name most familiar things, knew her first name, spoke in sentences and could carry a conversation, though she was hard to understand most of the time. We enrolled her in preschool that year and she was a little social butterfly. But as that school year went on, her teachers started to notice that she was struggling to get her words out. Most people that know Iyla today, have no idea that she was in speech therapy classes for two years. They have no idea that I fought it for almost 6 months and that I felt a tremendous guilt about it, because I thought it was my fault that she was stuttering as badly as she was. Today on the blog, I’m sharing the mistakes I made, in hopes that if you are ever in this situation, you take advantage of early intervention. .

There are two types of kids. 1) The kid who wants to eat the same thing every single day of the week, sometimes more than one time per day and 2) The kid who loves something one day and then hates it the next. #ad Which type of kid do you have?

#AD Our girls love nature, so this weekend, we headed to a local nature preserve for a little animal watching, walking and family time. We always pack the essentials when we're heading out in this Florida heat, including snacks, sunblock and @smartwater, because we know how important it is to stay hydrated. We love smartwater® because it's purified water made using vapor distillation, similar to the way water is purified in nature. It's available in 700mL and 1L bottles. Now through 9/15, you can save $2.75 off at Sam's Club, so stock up!

Ahh… the bathroom. The place where you can have privacy and a few minutes to yourself to doo what you need to doo.  A sacred place that we took for granted for a long time, before we had kids.  Somehow, after you become a parent, the bathroom is no longer your private place.  They failed to tell us that our kids have a radar that tells them exactly when we walk into the bathroom so that they can knock, stick their tiny hands and feet under the door, ask you a million questions, beg you to come in… the demands are endless and always seem to be that exact moment when you finally take a break from your busy life to use the bathroom.

Whatcha doo-in Mom?

I miss those days. The days when I could sit down and actually relax for a moment as I did my doody…. As a parent, I find myself having to rush through it before someone knocks on the door and needs my attention.  And honestly, I miss it.  And while I know that my girls are growing up so quickly and one day I’ll miss those bangs on the door and endless questions, right now, I just want to be able to poo in peace.

I have been a fan of Poo~Pourri Before-You-Go® Toilet Spray for years.  If you haven’t heard of it, you may be living under a rock.  It’s genius.  When you live in a household of 5, you don’t want to walk into a bathroom and get a whiff of what the person before you left behind.  This all natural spray is made up of essential oils and traps the smell with just a few sprays before you go.  So after you flush, you don’t leave anything behind but a refreshing bouquet of natural essential oils.

Mama, Are you Done Yet?

When I found out that the founder of Poo~Pourri, Suzy Batiz and The Poo Crew had written a book, I couldn’t wait to read it. The WOO of POO: Change Your Life In The Time You Take a Sh*t was not only the perfect bathroom read, but gave me a reason to stay in the bathroom just a little bit longer.  Each chapter is inspiring and gives a little insight into how you can be a better person.  Between the company’s triumphant stories to the “Take a Shift” exercises, you can’t help but leave the bathroom a changed person.

While I loved the entire book, my favorite chapter was Woo #4: Doo it on purpose.  This particular chapter focuses on how we can become the person we’ve always wanted to be.  It really resonated with me because up until a few years ago, I felt like I was living the life I was supposed to live, not the life I wanted to live.  I think we are brought up that way.  You are supposed to get married, you are supposed to have a career and you are supposed to have kids… and while all of this is awesome, is it what you wanted or what you were supposed to do?  When I finally stopped worrying about what my life was supposed to look like and more about what I wanted my life to look like, things changed, drastically. I was excited to get up in the morning. I was excited about my career. I was excited to be a Mom and a wife.  I had a purpose and it was the purpose I chose, not the one that was chosen for me.

Sometimes, I think we need a little reminding.  And so this book not only serves as that reminder, but also gives you a few moments back in your day to allow yourself to focus on you and how you can live a better life.  If this sounds like something you’ve wanted to do, please take a moment and check out The WOO of POO: Change Your Life In The Time You Take a Sh*t. I know it’s going to change my life and I’m sure it will change yours.

    Oh my gosh! This is really funny! I think it would be great as a gag gift, or something to keep in a guest bathroom. Its so true, once those little people pop out of your, your bathroom time is diminished. It’s never the same again and this is also true with an 8 and 6-year-old. You’d think by that age, they’d get when mommy is in the bathroom.

    This would be such a fun gag gift for my husband who is typically the one who stinks up our bathroom the most. Thanks for putting it on my radar.

    We haven’t tried this brand but we used a similar one. When we were still at our old house, we only had one bathroom and the interruption happened a lot of times!

    I love products that use essential oils. I think we could the Poo~Pourri Before-You-Go Toilet Spray in our home!

    Pou-Pourri should now be part of my travel and bag essentials. Well, respect to those who will be next to you. I am sure no one will be happy entering the comfort room with bad odor.

  • Anosa Malanga VA

    Wow, this is my first time to learn about this product and I am amazed. Me and my officemate were just talking about out Comfort room experiences at the office and this is the answer! Hahaha I should get one or two of this.

    I have heard so much about poo-pourri. I had never actually seen it until I went on a trip and there was some in the hotel bathroom.

  • valmg @ Mom Knows It All

    I have seen this product mentioned online many times and on the tv. I’ve never seen it in a local store so haven’t tried it and always wondered if it worked.

  • Sarah Bailey

    I keep meaning to buy Poo-Pourri to see what it is like, I find it hard to believe it will turn the stink to a good smell but hey so many people say its good!

  • Amber Myers
    January 11, 2018

    I cracked up at this post! We actually DO buy Poo-Pourri because I have a stinky teenager plus a husband. It comes in handy. I love this book too.

    There is an ongoing joke amongst my close friends about how I will poop anywhere should the need arise. I can certainly see Poo-Pourri becoming a purse staple of mine!

    Oh my..I must admit, I laughed when I read your title! I’ve heard of the Woo-of-Poo spray, but didn’t realize they had a book. I can only imagine it’s a good read!

  • Sarah Honey
    January 11, 2018

    LOL! This sounds like a great product.

  • candy

    Since I haven’t heard of this product or book well yes I must be living under a rock. That is okay we put locks on our bathroom doors for privacy. Have fun with the spray and book sounds fun.
