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? Or, are your kids like mine and bounce back and forth between the two? Either way, there is a way to make lunches more fun for kids. 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! Plus, learn why we choose @JuicyJuiceUSA new better-for-you options, which are packed with functional benefits with juicy flavor that parents can feel great about serving to their kids.

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. Visit rcl.ink/UyB to check them out and make sure to take advantage of the sale they’re currently having. No discount code necessary! What are you doing to get back to you? .

#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? This dairy-free rainbow pepper pizza making kit featuring @daiyafoods dairy-free Mozzarella Style Cutting Board Collection Shreds! Today on the blog we’re sharing all the details on Falynn’s lunchbox favorite! #veganrecipes #veganrecipe #veganfoodlovers #dairyfree #dairyfreekids #dairyfreecheese #dairyfreerecipes #rainbowfood #pizzatime #lunchboxideas #lunchboxideasforkids #amazonfinds #foodstyle #foodpassion #foodography  #momblogger  #foodinsta  #foodielife #healthygirl #foodielovers #instafoods  #mytinymoments #kidfriendly  #yummyyummy #foodielife  #ourcandidlife #foodielifestyle #deliciosa #recipeinspo

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? .

AD: Let's talk time. I have none. Since school started, it seems like my days got even shorter, if that's possible. As much as I would love to spend an hour in the kitchen every day, preparing gourmet meals for my family, it's just not feasible during the week. So when it comes to dinner time, I'm always looking for fast, convenient options. While I was placing an online grocery order at @walmart last week, I found these budget-friendly Fast Fixin’ Restaurant Style® Country Fried Steaks in the freezer section. They were so easy to make and come with the country gravy mix right in the package! I just steamed some veggies and voila... restaurant quality dinner, ready in minutes! They are so crispy and delicious that my kids only stopped eating to tell me how yummy they were (multiple times). I've already stocked up for next week! @FastFixin #comfortfood https://lnk2.io/wjFg4JZ

The Day I Gained Over 500 Followers

While follower count doesn’t REALLY matter, we all know that as brand reps, we do want to provide our shops with the greatest amount of exposure that we possibly can, so growing our account does matter.  Our rep account has been stuck at 16.1K FOREVER!  It seemed I was losing followers as I was gaining them.  I was joining giveaway loops, joining Telegram groups, interacting more and more and still…. nothing.  I was in a rut until I discovered something absolutely amazing this week.  Something I felt I had to share with you!

You’ve seen them. I know you have.  Those follow loops. They are EVERYWHERE!!  I remember looking at them and thinking how incredibly silly they were.  I swore I would never do them.  I was sure it was a handful of people that did them and it would be a big waste of time.  And then I saw one of my fave accounts post one.  She is the blogger I want to be and has the activity I aspire to have.  At that moment I thought, shoot…. if she’s doing these follow loops, they must work, right?!

So I gave in.  I followed the instructions and went to the hashtag, followed everyone that posted and commented on each.  When I was done, I reposted the image and instructions and y’all…. I gained over 200 followers in just a few hours.  Wait… what?!  I  couldn’t believe it.  I was quickly searching for more of these loops and I was literally ready to fill my feed with them until I reached my 20k goal. What I realized was that the later you join, the harder it is to get involved since Instagram blocks you for commenting too many times or for following too many, too fast…. so…. I did what any other insane person would do.  I started my own follow loop.

I created an image, I found a hashtag that hadn’t been used yet and I posted.  I totally expected crickets but surprisingly, within a few hours, there were over 350 participants!  It was so successful that I created my 2nd follow loop only 24 hours later.  And just days after my first follow loop, I’m up 800 followers and well on my way to our goal.   I want to invite you to join in! I will be posting these follow loops every day or two, and they are all open to all reps, small shops and bloggers.  You can join in anytime and the best part is, it’s absolutely FREE!

While I am following some accounts that I may not have followed in other circumstances, for the most part, I’m finding new reps and shops that I may not have found otherwise.  I’m gaining followers, they are gaining followers and we are spreading the love!  Join us!  Check out #followunicornloop2 on our page @thesmallfashionista for my most recent loop.

    I considered doing one of these follow loops but am leery because even though I want followers, I do not want to follow back numerous accounts that are not in my niche. This will then clutter my feed with posts that I am not interested in. I was once told by a media expert that you should only be following 10% of the amount of people following you. When you follow too many people it makes your account look unauthentic. For example I have a little over twelve thousand followers and therefore should only be following a maximum of 1,200 people. I have tried to follow this rule. That is the only thing that keeps me from joining the loops because I do not want to follow all of those people back. I would rather if I could pick and choose only the rep and Shop accounts to follow.

      I’m only following 11% of those following me, so that’s not really an issue here. I think that this community is all about supporting one another so if helping out another rep, shop or blogger by giving them an extra follow will do that, then I’m doing my part!

    I felt he same way – and still kinda do. I was #13 in this loop and have had maybe 15 followers so apparently people are not following directions or I’m doing something wrong….idk. But I posted it last night and feel it should’ve been much better. I’ve even been going to the # following more but nope – not happening.
