As a mother of three daughters, it’s so important for me to teach my girls about strong, talented women who were able to turn their dreams into success. I love that Lucia chose to honor Frida Kahlo and her own Hispanic heritage by choosing this particular costume as one of her Halloween looks. I was even more pleasantly surprised that she was able to put together this DIY Frida Kahlo costume for under $5! Head to our blog to find out how. Have you ever made your own costume? .

I will never forget the day we brought Elle home from the rescue. Super Dad took one look at her and said he was sure she was part lion... She was just missing the mane. So, when we had to decide what type of costume to get Elle this year for Halloween, I knew she HAD to be a lion! And @chewy had the perfect costume for her! Of course, Super Dad and Falynn had to get in on the action too. 
Now tell us, WHO WORE IT BEST?
Super Dad, Falynn or Elle?

Yesterday we visited a local farm and Falynn had the best time ever. She desperately wanted to hold a chicken but she didn’t know how. I love that she wasn’t afraid to ask for help. After learning the right way and trying a few times, she finally got the hang of it. I believe she held 3 different chickens. One 💩 on her shirt and we told her it was good luck. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣 How was your weekend? Did you try anything new?

World Mental Health Day is a day that affects us all. Whether it’s you or a loved one, it seems as though more and more people are speaking out about their struggles with mental health and how it affects their lives. Since having been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder myself years ago, I’ve connected with so many people through social media and am so grateful for this platform where we can reach out to others and let them know that they aren’t alone. What hurts my heart the most, is hearing about the amount of kids that deal with anxiety these days. I wish there was a magic button we could press to take away anxiety from our kids, so that they can enjoy their childhood, but unfortunately, it’s not that easy. Fortunately, there are steps we can take. I am grateful to @theanxietyhealer who has written another guest post on our blog today for those with teenagers who may be struggling with anxiety. She shares what signs to look for and when to seek help. I hope you’ll take a moment to check it out and pass it onto anyone with teenage kids. Let’s help in any way we can. .

Nine already. I wonder where the time went.  It was just yesterday that we found out we were expecting you.  Your Dad and I couldn’t have been happier.  From the moment we saw you, we loved you so much.

You’ve always had a smile on your face.  It’s a smile that lights up the room.  My friends started to call you “cheese” because you had this huge smile that would make your nose squish up. It was the cutest, most genuine smile I’ve ever come across.  You still squish your nose up sometimes and I flash back to when you were a toddler.  I hope you never lose that joy.

Making friends has always been so easy for you. You were always a little social butterfly, even on your first day of school.

You found a love for dance and gymnastics early on.  The passion I see in you when you dance, tells me that there is so much beauty and grace inside of you.

You care so much about others and love with your whole heart.  You are always talking about how you’re going to take care of your Dad and I when we’re old and I have no doubt that you will keep that promise.

You love to coupon!  I’ve never seen a child so excited about saving money, though I know that it’s less about the money and shampoo and more about the time we are spending together, just you and I.  I love it just as much as you do.

You are just as sweet as you are goofy.  You don’t care what people think. You are more concerned about how they feel and you will stop at nothing to make sure they are happy.

You are so sensitive.  When you cry, it breaks my heart but one day, I hope you’ll use that compassion to change the world and make it a better place.

You are scared of thunder and love to make a safe place for you and your little sister to sit and wait out the storms.

Your faith is inspiring.  You’ve worked so hard to learn and really understand your religion.

You’ve wanted to grow up to be so many things (sometimes all at once): a veterinarian, a singer, a teacher… This month, you want to be a pediatrician.  I wonder how many times that will change before you are an adult.  I know you’re going to choose the perfect career and change the world, no matter what it is.

Watching you grow up has been a pleasure and an honor. I can’t wait to see what the next 9 years has in store for you (but please, let’s not rush it, I want you to enjoy every single part of your childhood).

Happy 9th Birthday Iyla! Daddy and I love you more than words could ever say.
