There’s always a ton of articles about how to lose your baby weight, but what about those of us who have managed to keep it on? Sometimes even YEARS later. Doesn’t our effort count for anything?!?!? Click through to see my best tips. 😎
There are seriously so many goodies on this list – from my (expensive, but use it every day) Nespresso machine to my Glossier make up, which makes me look awake for school drop off – it’s LIFE-CHANGING. If I do say so myself. 😂
What if you could make one tiny change a week until you found yourself living life with more joy, connection and confidence? What if you made the tiniest shifts and started feeling like the truest version of yourself? What if you finally unleashed your inner rock star on the world? It can happen. Pinkie swear.
There’s nothing I love more than a romper for Summer – there’s basically nothing to think about! I took one of my faves (a basic black version) and styled it three ways for going out, heading to the park, and off to work.
As you gals know, I’m a big believer in easy fun that delivers a big bang for your buck. And coloring your kid’s hair with markers does exactly that.
In fact, it’s such easy fun it feels ridiculous to dedicate an entire post to it, because the instructions are: Color your kid’s hair with markers.
Yes, that’s it! You ship yourself a set of these Mr. Sketch smelly markers (for some reason these seem to go on a much deeper color than other brands) and get coloring. MIC DROP.
While we’re here and chatting though, can I remind you that having fun with your kids doesn’t actually have to be hard? It’s easy as a mom on Pinterest and Instagram to think more work = more fun, but I actually think the opposite is true.
For me, typically, more work = not following through, as evidenced by my very large pile of DIY kits I keep “meaning to do” with my kids.
Instead, the fun that gets done is the fun that is built into your everyday life. The times you spontaneously have a dance party in the kitchen, or pull off the road to check out an interesting museum, or everyone wears funny headbands that you find in the dollar bin at Target.
Those are the memories that actually get made because if something is easy enough to do, you’ll probably do it.
As for your kids, I promise they don’t need an all day, craft extravaganza, if that’s not your thing (although if it is, GO FOR IT, and can I please send my kids to your house for an afternoon? 😂).
Five minutes of coloring their hair will put a bounce in their step, promise. My kids love the compliments they get, and when we did it for my daughter’s birthday party, it was a huge hit (although, be aware, if your kiddo’s hair is darker, these may not show up very well). We still pull them out every so often as a way to fun up a regular morning.
So, this turned into a whole thing. 😎 Who knew that coloring your kids’ hair could lead to such a passionate discourse? Let’s go forth and have daily fun, k?
