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. .

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?

#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. 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?

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? .

An Innovative Children’s Book That Stars Your Girl as a Tech Hero

If You Love It, Share It!

Our girls LOVE to read.  We actually had to build a floor to ceiling shelf for them to hold all of their books and they still don’t fit!  It’s a collection that we don’t mind them having and are more than happy to help them to grow both their stacks of books and their love of learning.  I have always loved reading myself and while I didn’t have hundreds of books like my daughters do, there are a few that I still remember loving, even though it was SOOO long ago.  One of those was a personalized book.  It had my name and my friend’s names and was custom made especially for me.  It made me feel so special and it’s a feeling I’ll always remember.

When I was contacted by Your Secret Code, I was over the moon!  I knew that Falynn was going to go crazy when she saw that she had a book with her name in it (and boy was I right!).  When the book arrived, it was so much more than I imagined.  The illustrations are absolutely amazing and the story was awesome! Your Secret Code is about a little girl who loves coding and building robots and is always making messes. She decides to build a robot to do her chores for her. But when she arms it with artificial intelligence, things quickly go out of control – until she saves the day. We barely got it out of the package before she was begging us to read it to her.  And once we were done, she was begging us to read it again.

I’d have to say that her favorite part of the book was the part that shows her Daddy talking about her messy room.  She looked at me, looked at her Daddy and was shocked.  I think it was at that moment that she realized this book really was about her since Daddy is ALWAYS telling her to clean up.  That was a detail I didn’t even have to share when we ordered the book.  I guess she’s not alone in the mess department!

Your Secret Code is an innovative children’s book that stars your girl as a tech hero.  As a mother of 3 girls, I don’t think there is anything more important than teaching them that they can do anything that they put their mind to!   According to their website, studies show that children begin to associate jobs to genders between ages 5 and 7, and they base their aspirations on what they are exposed to.  Stereotypes come from everywhere and children’s stories are full of them. Girls, especially female minorities, need more sources of inspiration in order to break down stereotypes. This isn’t just a story about technology. It’s about bravery, problem-solving and leadership: values that are ubiquitous to any fulfilling future. Expose your children to positive role models who will inspire them to become the leaders of their lives.  A strong message wrapped up in a beautiful, personalized book.  It’s the perfect gift for any little girl!

Now that you know all about it, let me share with you how it works.  You personalize your girl’s name, skin color and hair style, and receive a beautiful hard cover picture book in 2 weeks. Having this book in my hands, I can tell you that it’s worth every penny! Just visit to get started!
