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. .

#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!

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.

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? .

Remembering My Childhood with Vicks VapoRub

This post is sponsored, but all opinions are my own.

While there isn’t much of my childhood that I really remember anymore, there is one specific thing that I’ll never forget…  The soothing smell of Vicks VapoRub. When I was congested or had a cough, my Nana would always go into her medicine cabinet and grab the VapoRub.  Once she rubbed it on my chest and neck, I instantly felt comforted and was able to go to sleep. The smell still brings me back, all these years later.

My Nana and Papa’s house was a huge part of my childhood.  I remember every inch of that house. From the yellow wallpapered kitchen to the green 70’s style chairs in the living room.  The fruit trees that lined the sides and back of the home and the little bedroom where I would lay on the floor and make shadow puppets on the wall.  There was something about that house that always made me feel safe, comfortable and so loved.  Although, I think anywhere my Grandparents were, was my comfort zone.  My Grandparents were amazing people and I owe so much of my drive and personality to the both of them.  While I miss them enormously, I continue to share their methods with my own kids.

As a Mother of three, when my girls are congested, I have the job of bringing that same relief to my daughters when they’re feeling under the weather. They seem to bring home some sort of cough on a regular basis. Aren’t school germs awesome?  And it’s always the kind of cough that lingers and acts up at night.  When they are kept awake, so are we.  Lucky for us, VapoRub’s medicated vapors last up to 8 hours to help parents and children get cough relief so they can get rest.

When my girls are feeling under the weather, they know what to do. They grab the VapoRub from their medicine cabinet.  I love watching their faces as they inhale the medicated vapors and get ready for bed. I must have told them a million times that it was my Nana’s favorite.  Part of me thinks that they love it that much more, because it’s a part of her that they can still connect to. And while she’s no longer with us, her traditions can still live on through us.

While we can’t rely on much, I know that we can rely on Vicks. The Vicks® legacy is about more than just cold and flu medicine. It’s about giving families the opportunity to continue life—even on sick days—for more than 100 years.  I love that Vicks® VapoRub™  is great for ages two and up. It’s topical cough medicine with medicated vapors starts working quickly for adults as well to relieve cough symptoms. VapoRub is the #1 pediatrician recommended cough rub.

    I love how it smells. I have a cool mist humidifier from them and it has that scent. I have it going right now.

    This reminds me of my childhood too because my mom made sure that we always had Vicks VapoRub. And I still use Vicks VapoRub until now.

  • Jennifer

    Same here! Many nights I got Vick’s slathered on my chest so I could sleep when I had a cold

  • Nichole Arnold

    My Mom used it on a me a few times. I keep it in stock at all times for my son. It really does help!

  • Lisa Bristol

    Vicks VapoRub is my go to when am congested. My Mom used to rub it on our feet and put socks on us. It always helps me feel better.

    Vix was my mothers saving grace. She always used it to make us feel better.

    Oh yeah, I remember old school memories. I think my mom used Vicks for me when i was a child. It’s really good!

  • Chubskulit Rose

    My Mom always use this when we have a cold and couldn’t breath well. I do the same for my kids now.

  • Victoria Heckstall

    I love Vicks products. I always use that especially the one for the babies. I feel better whenever I used that.

  • Ricci

    There are certain scents that bring back childhood for me and VapoRub is definitely a scent that brings back some memories! LOL!! Also boxed Mac and cheese!! HA

  • Dina Demarest
    February 21, 2018

    Yes my mom and grandparents used Vicks on me. I in turn use it on my kids and myself to this day. It’s such a great product.

  • Becky Willis
    February 21, 2018

    Yes, my Mom used to always use it on myself, my sister and brother. I remember she would drape like a washcloth over our chest and it was warm and somehow secure it around our neck. So when I had kids I thought I would do the same but my 2 boys hated anything like that so I would wait until they went to sleep then rub it on their back lol. Now if my husband and I use it we put it on our feet and put wool or heavy socks on. That works wonders.

    The menthol scent of Vicks VapoRub definitely brings back memories! Now I use it on my babies when they are sick. Classic comfort for sure!

  • GiGi Eats

    I have actually NEVER used this stuff before!

    I can’t smell Vicks VapoRub (or anything that smells remotely similar, for that matter) without memories taking me back to my childhood. My mom would always rub it on my chest when I had a cold, as well as put a dab in our vaporizer that she would set up in my room. Not only are those fond memories, it works so well! My daughter uses it for her kids, too!

  • Jocelyn @ Hip Mama's Place
    February 21, 2018

    I don’t think I can live without Vick’s vaporub! We always have that at home and it’s the perfect product that provides instant relief not just for the kids but for me and my husband as well.

  • Paula Schuck
    February 20, 2018

    This is a brand that my Mom always used with us when we were sick. I totally trust Vicks and even kind of have come to like the smell and associate it with being a kid too.

  • Marysa
    February 20, 2018

    It’s funny, because I have heard so often how scents are linked so heavily with memories. So often, I smell something and it takes me back to somewhere, sometime. I do associate Vicks Vaporub with my childhood!

  • Michele Brosius
    February 20, 2018

    Oh my gosh! Vicks brings back a lot of childhood memories for me too. I can vividly remember my mom coming in my room in the middle of the night and rubbing it on my chest. I used it all of my kids, too.

    Vaporub is soooo handy. I even use it as an adult when I get sick-it always helped when momma used it.

    Hands up I love Vicks I have some in the draw in my bedroom and it always comes out when someone feels ill it really does help with breathing!

  • Jennifer Van Huss
    February 20, 2018

    Vicks is definitely a part of my childhood memories. Whenever I was sick, I remember my mom getting out the vick rub and putting it on my chest. The minty smell always makes me smile as I knew I would be able to sleep after she put it on!

  • Danielle Smith
    February 20, 2018

    How wonderful that is to have such fond memories with your grand-parents! Vick’s has been a big staple in my family’s life for many years. A friendly tip (unless you’ve heard of this before): Rub Vick’s on your feet and wear socks before climbing into bed. It works wonders!

  • Joely Smith
    February 20, 2018

    I LOVE Vicks Vapor Rub! I know that sounds silly but Vicks has been used for generations in my family! It reminds me of HOME in some strange way! Home being my grandmother’s where I grew up. Vicks WORKS in the way that is should but it is also just so soothing when you feel horrible. We all want that right?!

  • Stacie
    February 20, 2018

    The smell of Vick’s brings such great memories for me. I remember how nice it felt to be tucked in and doted over by my mom when I was feeling bad.
