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? .

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. .

#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!

The girls have been back to school for almost a month already. Can you believe it? #sponsored 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?

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? .

Happy Cards – The Perfect Gift + Your Chance to Win a $200 Happy Teen Card!

Our oldest daughter, Lucia, just turned 13. Cue the ugly crying face. I swear I just gave birth to her yesterday but somehow she is this suddenly this beautiful young lady, an inch taller than I am with feet that are two sizes bigger than mine. The days of stuffed animals and cute little tutu dresses are over. While it used to be so easy to buy her birthday gifts, this year I was racking my tired Mom brain trying to figure out what to buy her. And then I got an email from Happy Cards.

We were walking through Target one day last month and I saw these cards in the gift card section. Instead of the gift cards that are good for just one store, Happy Cards can be used in a variety of stores, depending on the one you purchase.  Choose from: Happy Dining, Happy Kid, Happy Teen, Happy Lady, Happy Guy, Happy Bites, Happy Eats, Happy Local Eats, Happy Beauty, Happy Bride, Happy Student or Happy Her. Happy Cards combine many great brands into one perfect gift for any one and any occasion and can be purchased in a grocery store near you. When I saw Happy Teen, that missing lightbulb suddenly lit up just above my head. It was THE perfect gift for Lucia!

Happy Cards – Happy Teen

Happy Teen features many of my daughter’s favorite places. And when Happy Cards presented her with her very own Happy Teen Card, she couldn’t wait to get to spending! We turned this incredibly generous gift into a day of shopping for me and my oldest baby… Yes, she’ll always be my baby whether she’s taller than me or not.

This wonderful opportunity gave us the chance to spend time together while giving her the ability to choose her own gifts which, as you may imagine, is very important at this age. Of course, she started off at Barnes & Noble. Lucia has never met a book she doesn’t love. She chose 3 that she’s had her eye on and was excited to pay with her own card instead of having to ask me for the money.

Next, it was over to the mall. She was disappointed to find out that Sephora wouldn’t accept the Happy Card because it was inside of JCPenney and not a stand alone store. The JCPenney Sephora’s operate differently than stand-alone stores, in general, from couponing, to birthday rewards, to gift card redemption. Luckily American Eagle was just around the corner and she was able to find so many cute, age-appropriate items on the clearance rack (that’s my girl!).

I found that since it was “her money”, she was so much more responsible with what she purchased, checking her balance before deciding what she would and wouldn’t take home.  It was definitely a proud Mama moment for me and since then, I’ve noticed that when we go somewhere, she is more aware of prices (even if I’m paying). Who knew that this little shopping spree would wind up being educational?!

Lucia did so well that she actually still has money left on the card and wanted to save it for next weekend so we can head over to the Nike Outlet. She wound up with a pair of shorts, 2 shirts, a romper, a dress and 3 books. Not a bad gift right? I can’t remember the last time I got such a great gift for my birthday!
