Real Dad Talk: Going Beyond Flowers

  Don’t get me wrong, you should ALWAYS get the mother of your children flowers on Mother’s Day. Since flowers don’t last forever, I tend to buy affordable ones from Trader Joe’s or a local Farmer’s Market. I avoid the mark-ups and delivery fees that come with going through a florist and am able to invest my savings into a thoughtful gifts that will last longer. Here’s a couple of ideas to fit any budget this Mother’s Day: Framed Kid Artwork What’s Mother’s Day without a homemade gift? Help extend the life of Junior’s artwork by displaying it a frame

Real Mom Talk: The Sisterhood of Motherhood
May 12, 2015 8:12 pm | by

When I returned to work after having my third baby, I can’t tell you how many times people would shake their head and say, “I just don’t know how you do it!” As if I was crazy for trying to keep my job and raise children at the same time. These comments usually didn’t come from men either! I heard it from other women, even other moms! Perhaps it was my post-partum hormones, but I took it as a back-handed compliment—even though they probably said it with good intentions. The thing is, I didn’t feel like I was doing “it” very

Contest: Every Good Mom

Can we be honest for a second? It’s HARD work to be a mom. And in a world filled with mom wars, shaming and bashing, it can be even harder. We all work relentlessly to be a good mom. But when someone disagrees because of your lifestyle or parenting choices, it can really, REALLY hurt. It doesn’t matter if you use cloth diapers or disposables, breast- or bottle-feed, co-sleep, homeschool, eat only organic, work full time or stay home. You are a good mom.  Everyone is different, and those differences are exactly what make your unique journey through motherhood so special. Rather than looking down

Real Mom Talk: My First Mother’s Day Card
May 11, 2014 11:50 am | by

My first Mother Day card read “Happy Mother’s Day to a Wonderful Mother.”  My friend bought it for me when I was 33 weeks pregnant.  Reading the words “Wonderful Mother,” in a card addressed to me was very unnerving.  Mothers wore pearls. They were older and had their lives together.  And this wasn’t me. I wasn’t ready to be a mother (or so I thought) and definitely didn’t have anything together. The moment motherhood actually started to hit me was when I was sitting on the floor in a Walgreens bathroom, holding three positive pregnancy tests.  I took three just

Mother’s Day is just a few days away and, if you’re like most parents, you’ve probably been too busy to even realize it.

That’s why we created this l ovely little shirt to remind you that “You’re one good mum!” This shirt is intentionally printed backward so when you see yourself in the

Real Mom Talk: I knew I was a mom when…

On this Mother’s Day, I (and every other mom in the country) will get to celebrate the honor that is being their child’s mother. But this year, I’ll be approaching May with nervous excitement because by the time Mother’s Day rolls around, I’ll be 40 weeks pregnant with our third child, which is an honor indeed! And even with the impending arrival of said third child (who literally seems to be trying to kick his way out of my womb), I’m still often taken aback by the hilarity and profoundness that comes with being a mom. I’ve realized my station
