An entire month of celebrating—celebrating each other, high-fiving yourself for every day you tuck in, and seeing the amazing in the ordinary. Yes, Mamaloders, we have much to celebrate.
Let’s take a little look back, shall we?
Potty training parties? Oh my. I think I am with Renegade Mama on this one.
Teri Biebel has tapered off of her antidepressants, now what?
Shawn Fink walks us through the 5 Reasons we yell at our kids. (Exhaustion anyone?)
Chris Treber”s Confessions of a Failed Morning Routine: “I want to kiss the strange woman. I want to thank her for not judging me, when I feel I deserve to be judged. For not judging my son whose face and mane are blotted with white crusty goo.”
Claire Bidwell Smith once again has just the right words in this letter to her daughters about the milestone of living half of a lifetime without her mother.
Alpenglow skin care—this is the product I use (skin, hair) personally. I am from that same town in Alaska. This stuff works and smells like HOME.
Nicki Gilbert story about dropping her son had the internet all a twitter. My favorite line of forgiveness: “I also don’t forget that I reached down and picked him up.”
And the one I want to make sure we wrap up this month with Joanne de Simone’s On the Eve of Sweet 16. Because, this: “It is always possible to discover small but significant joys.”
