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?

This girl lost another tooth...

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? .

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?

I'll let you in on a little secret... creating fun lunches is more fun for us too! This week, we created our first character, Inspector Caper Eyes. Head to the blog for more details!

Remember I told you guys about our day dates now that the girls are #backtoschool? Well, we’ve really been enjoying them. #sponsored We walk, talk and laugh (a lot). Have you seen our IGTV yet? It’s a cheesy, beautiful video of what our relationship is like. I love that we’re able to connect and that we can make the time in our day to focus on our relationship and our health. Since we have three daughters, it’s even more important to go the extra mile when it comes to taking care of ourselves. These awesome @amazfit watches help us with that. I have the Amazfit Verge and Super Dad has the Amazfit Bip. They are lightweight, have app notifications and track your daily activity, your heart rate and so much more. The Amazfit Bip comes with a 30-day battery life and the Verge comes with Alexa built-in and you can make and receive phone calls through the watch. We can track our activity, sleep and heart rate and hold each other accountable for better decisions, when it comes to fitness and health.

#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!

Almost F O U R T E E N. Where did the time go? I blinked and she’s this beautiful, little lady. She’s so smart, so talented and although she has her teenage girl moments, she is the best first born I could have ever asked for. Less than 2 weeks until she’s officially old enough to get a job. 😳 Where did the time go? .

The girls have been back to school for almost a month already. Can you believe it? They love their teachers, are happy to see their friends again after a long summer vacation and are looking forward to a year packed with education, fun and new experiences. While they’re at school, Super Dad and I are working hard to make sure they have everything they need. At the top of that list, is a healthy and yummy lunch. When you have three girls with very different tastes, it’s important to make sure they are getting what they like, but more importantly, what they need. Our latest creation? This dairy-free rainbow pepper pizza making kit featuring Daiya dairy-free Mozzarella Style Cutting Board Collection Shreds!

ingredients needed to make a dairy free pizza including daiya plant based cheese

flatbread and basil in a lunchbox

rae dunn yum spoon

It’s pretty simple to put together! All you’ll need is:

  • Flatbread or crackers
  • Marinara sauce
  • Chopped up bell peppers in a variety of colors
  • Dairy-free Daiya Mozzarella Style Cutting Board Collection Shreds
  • Any other toppings your kids may enjoy

Using a BPA-free stacking bento box lunch box that has 4 compartments and is microwave-safe, I’m able to provide all of the necessary ingredients to create this fun and yummy recipe!

I fill the two smaller containers with marinara sauce and Daiya Mozzarella Style Cutting Board Collection Shreds. Daiya’s Cutting Board Collection Shreds have more dairy-like flavor, texture and aroma than ever, and stretch and melt like the real thing! It’s hard to tell that they are dairy-free!

The first big compartment is filled with their favorite healthy topping(s). In Falynn’s case, that’s red, orange, yellow and green bell peppers, placed to look like a rainbow. The final compartment holds the base for your pizza. We use flatbread or crackers.

The best part about this lunch box idea is that Falynn doesn’t need to bring an extra snack because she snacks on the leftover peppers, once she’s finished enjoying her pizza. When you are creating yours, make sure that the toppings you include are things that your kids already love! You’re more likely to get an empty lunchbox at the end of the school day.

Your kids can easily put together their pizza at school, by spreading marinara sauce on the bread or crackers and then placing the toppings on.  The pizza can be eaten as is, or if the school allows them to, they can microwave the pizza as well.  Just make sure that the container is microwave-safe!

This also makes the perfect after school snack because it’s easy to make and the kids love it! Falynn has even made Super Dad and I a dairy-free pizza and has become quite the little chef! She loves to switch up the toppings and see what she can create!
