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. .

#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!

It was the 8th grade. I was 13. My hair was a hot, frizzy mess, I could not get my bangs to do that fun fan thing that was so popular at that time, my face was always accessorized with a pimple or two, everyone was in a relationship except me and I was becoming a woman in the most awkward and uncomfortable way possible.

As my daughters grow up, I can’t help but want to snap my fingers and make their middle school experience easy and magical.  Unfortunately, I’m no magician. So while I can help with the hair and pimple issues that are bound to occur, I can’t take away that uncomfortable feeling we all have one week out of every month. I’m not talking about the cramps and bloating (though those are awful), I’m talking about the giant pads we use to prevent possible leaks. I thought of them as my safety net.

Like most things, our girls have it so much easier these days. Because now, instead of giant pads, they have better, safer, less bulky options, like Knixteen. Which is awesome because middle schoolers in our county are forced to walk around with a see-through backpack and how many places can you hide a pad when people can see what you’re carrying around?

Knixteen is a brand built for teens, with products designed to make growing up easier. They are the creators of the perfect leak-proof period underwear and comfy training bras. Why weren’t they around in our teenage years? It would have made that awkward time so much less awkward.

What’s great about Knixteen period panties is that they look and feel like regular undies (prettier, actually). The difference is, they are absorbent, sweat-wicking, odor-crushing and seamless. Basically, they are magic for your period and you don’t have to be a magician to own them! Forget putting on your ugliest, biggest undies when Aunt Flo arrives (do they still call it that?). Why shouldn’t we feel comfortable and pretty all month?

Growing up is hard enough, and I don’t want my daughters worrying about their period ruining their pants. Plus, Knixteen is good for the environment and your wallet. No more buying disposable, non-flushable products that serve as a constant reminder that it’s that time of the month (though they can be used as a backup, if you need them). No chemical concerns or forcing them to learn to use tampons before they’re ready. I know I wasn’t ready until I was in my 20’s. And if I’m being honest, I’m still not a fan.

Knixteen offers a variety of shapes and sizes, including ‘Oh-No’ Proof Bikini, ‘Oh-No’  Proof Boyshort and Sleepover Short. The sleepover shorts are my daughter’s fave. There’s nothing worse then waking up in a panic because you’re afraid you’ll mess up your sheets, or worse, your mattress! They are comfy, soft and give her the peace of mind she needs.

And it’s not just undies they offer… One of my favorite parts of the Knixteen website is their Period Talk page, a great resource for your girls to have their questions answered.

Questions like

“Why is this happening to me?”

“Why does it feel like ninjas are attacking my stomach?”

“How do I break the news to my Mom and Dad?”.

I have to mention the little reusable pouch they send you with your order is everything. It can be used for a variety of things, including a DIY heating pad for when your cramps get bad! Just run a small towel or washcloth under hot water, insert it into the Knixteen pouch and you’ve got a heating pad! They’ve really thought of everything.

As a Mom, I appreciate companies helping our girls to feel more comfortable about this uncomfortable time in their lives. While my girls ask me lots of questions, there are times when they might feel a little more comfortable reading those answers from a reputable company that knows what they’re going through.

Are period panties a good option for your daughter? We definitely recommend giving Knixteen a try. She may just have the magical school experience that we didn’t! Use code SUPERMOMLIFE15 for 15% off ONLY underwear; expires July 31, 2019.

    I am so grateful that technology has afforded today’s teens thinks like period panties. I would have worn them every day, just in case.

  • Tiffany La Forge-Grau
    June 21, 2019

    I am absolutely in love with these. I sure wish they had something like this when I was younger.

  • Jenn Mitchell

    I have heard of these before and I love that I now know more about them. I will definitely be passing these along!

  • Katrina Ellen

    This is such an amazing alternative to a pad! I know that lots of places have gone to the see through bags – so this is so awesome.

  • Ronnie

    Where were these when I was 13?? My mom used to send me with such large pads that I looked like I was wearing diapers. Till today I’m embarrassed!

  • Subhashish Roy

    These days with such innovative products coming in everyday, life has become so much better. I guess the products will be of excellent quality.

    I can only imagine what you go through. These should be a big help in leading an active life

  • Danielle Rice

    Give me all of them. With my job, sometimes during my cycle, I don’t get to the bathroom on time. I think these panties will help with me not having to double up on tampon and pad, just so I don’t have an accident.

  • Krisy

    Why haven’t I known about the existence of period panties??? I’ve needed it before and I still need it now! Thank you for this, will def make a purchase.

  • Fatima Torres

    I’ve always LOVED period panties. Holding your pads in place, keeping you from accidents — what’s not to love? 🙂

  • Roch
    June 19, 2019

    I can’t imagine wearing a period panty because I’ve always worn disposable pads. It could be interesting as it’s something new to experience. I’m not a fan of tampons or menstrual caps either.

  • FOODIE FINDS HOME

    I am so getting some of these for my daughter. She just finished up 8th grade and I think she would love to have these for high school. I honestly didn’t even know that there was such a thing and yes, why did we not have these when we were younger? Ugh, it would have saved me from so much period induced anxiety.

  • Joanna Clute

    If it works then use it! These are a really great solution for these situations!

  • Vicky
    June 19, 2019

    I so wish they had something like this when I was growing up. It is a genius idea. I love all the options young ladies are afforded these days. Growing up is stressful enough without having to worry about your period.

    This is so fab! teens these days will have worry free period days because of this.

  • Leigh Suznovich

    Where were these when I needed them as a young, awkward teen of the 90’s?! They look awesome, such a better option than the bulky pads.

  • Claudia Krusch
    June 18, 2019

    These sound awesome! Love that hey offer so many varieties for different occasions. It’s great to have options!

  • Stacie
    June 18, 2019

    This is brilliant! I think it’s so needed. Girls can sometimes be so nervous and often periods some so randomly that these could really save a lot of girls some stress!

  • Kathy
    June 18, 2019

    I’ve been wondering a lot about these products. I think they sound awesome too. Something I really need to think about more and possibly give a try.

  • Amy
    June 18, 2019

    Very interesting concept. I know for me, I would never want to go freely in undies. But, I guess it is cool for kids.

  • Erica{Mama Ash}
    June 18, 2019

    This is something I’ll have to consider for my girls when they get to this age and depending on their flow.

  • Liz Mays
    June 18, 2019

    These sound great and I’m glad they offer so many varieties for different occasions. They must be helpful!

  • Annemarie LeBlanc
    June 18, 2019

    I wish those were available when I was a teen. Oh I remember those days. I was scared to move because I feared I would have a strike through! Anyway, I am glad that there are products like these period panties that help the young girls be as comfortable as possible during their periods.

  • Jenn @ EngineerMommy
    June 18, 2019

    I’ve never tried these but I heard good things about them. They would simplify that time of the month for sure.

    I work with kids and a lot of my 5th graders are just getting their periods. It is so important to talk openly with them.

  • Sarah Bailey
    June 18, 2019

    I love that period items have come so far over the past few years. These pants sound absolutely fab I think I need some myself.

  • Paula @ I'm Busy Being Awesome
    June 18, 2019

    These sound so interesting, I bet your daughter loves them

  • Cinny

    Sounds like a nice option to have. I’ll have to look into these more.

  • Rena
    June 18, 2019

    These are amazing! My mind is blown I had never seen this before. I don’t have periods anymore (wish they made pretty bladder control underwear), but I am going to show this to my daughter for my granddaughter even though she’s not there yet. It’s good to be prepared. Now is there anything for the emotional rollercoasters?

  • Brianne
    June 18, 2019

    Where were these when I was a girl going through that time of the month? I am grateful for these, for when my daughters get that age.

  • Tara Pittman
    June 18, 2019

    These sound so great and so easier to use than pads. I wish these were around when I was younger

  • Catherine @ To & Fro Fam
    June 18, 2019

    I need some of these! Leaking is the worst, and I hate the waste of using pantiliners throughout my period.

  • Amber Myers
    June 18, 2019

    I’d pick these up for my daughter to try! She hasn’t started yet, but will soon, and I know she worries about leakage. We talk openly about what happens when her period comes, which I think is always important.

  • GiGi Eats
    June 18, 2019

    GENIUS INVENTION right here!!!!! GENIUS! Seriously, way to bring confidence back to little girls who just start their period!!

  • Ashley
    June 18, 2019

    I’ve never heard of these, but you’re right they would have been great for me when I was starting all this stuff as a young girl. I’ll have to check them out.
