My Son is Just as Much as a Treasure as Your Daughter

My Son is Just As Much A Treasure As Your Daughter Blog

Every Prom season, I love seeing all the pretty pictures of the girls in their dresses and guys dressed up so handsomely in their tuxes. I know one day my sons will be those dapperly dressed boys. But there’s one picture I’ve seen making the rounds that I just can’t like. I think the girl is very pretty but the dad? That’s a whole different story. I get that this is a joke and the girl is laughing. I also understand that’s it a play on an old pop culture joke but given the current era … [Read more...]

Four Steps to Go From Soccer Team Mom to Coach Mom

Four Steps to Going from Team Mom to Coach Mom

This spring, I’m trading in my #TeamMom headband for #CoachMom headband. Yep, I’m coaching the soccer team for the little one and I realized that I have given over all my Saturday mornings for the next 8 weeks. I’m a little overwhelmed by this development but when I signed up on a whim (I was asked when I signed them up), I figured “How hard can it be? They’re preschoolers. ” I realized that this is going to be a big difference so here are four ways I’m going to set us up for success. First, … [Read more...]
