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? .

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. .

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.

Helping Him Find His Smile

If You Love It, Share It!

My husband is so handsome.  I don’t say that to brag, I say it because I truly believe it.  He is such a good person on the inside, but not bad on the eyes, either.  He’s got confidence, but is so humble and makes people love him almost as soon as they meet him.  And while I think he’s perfect, I knew that the one thing that has always bothered him was his smile.  I have so many pictures of him that I wish he looked happier in.  And it wasn’t because he wasn’t… it was because he was ashamed to show his not-so-perfect teeth. I knew that partnering with SmileDirectClub would change his life.  I am so grateful to them for working with us and helping him to find his smile.

It all started with his impression kit.  He was so excited to rip that box open and get the impressions back to the company. The process was so easy and so fast.  I could see the excitement in his eyes and I was over the moon for him.

Not long after he shipped the impressions back, he received this big box which contained all of his aligners as well as all of the tools and instructions he needed to get the smile he’ll love.  He is just about halfway through with his treatment and I already see such a drastic change.  Not only are his teeth much straighter, but his smile is so much bigger and brighter.

One of the things he mentioned to me was how hard it is for him to smile. Not because the aligners are uncomfortable but because he just never knew how.  He’s still learning how to smile and show his teeth, but when he does it on his own, it makes my heart skip a beat.

The aligners are clearly marked by month and week, so you know which to use.  According to my husband, they are a tad uncomfortable the first day, but it’s very easy to get used to them and they’re not painful at all.  He finds that he takes much better care of his teeth now and sees a difference in both his smile and how he feels.

A Little About SmileDirectClub:

SmileDirectClub‘s invisible aligners are BPA-free. Their lab custom-makes several sets of tight-fitting, clear aligners for each patient to gradually shift their teeth into the desired position. SmileDirectClub Invisible Aligners are 60% less than the price of other treatment options and usually don’t require any office visits.

While SmileDirectClub removes the hassle of in-office visits, they work with licensed dental providers to give you the peace-of-mind of professional treatment. Your local SmileDirectClub affiliated dental professional reviews your photos, medical history and a 3D image of your smile before determining the exact treatment option. And of course, their patient care specialists are available by phone, email or live chat to answer any questions you might have during your treatment.

Putting the before and current picture side by side really shows the difference in his teeth.  Doesn’t he look great? I can’t wait to continue to watch his smile transform.

    This is a very interesting service. I got basically the same treatment from my local dentist near me at M&G Family Dentistry in Katy, TX. Their service in top-notch, and now I can smile without feeling embarrassed at all.

    I love that this product has become available. As someone who has had braces (a few times) and my teeth would go back to being crooked and I would feel super self-conscious about my smile, I completely get it! This makes getting your smile back so much easier and affordable as busy parents.

  • Tara
    June 22, 2018
