A lot can happen in a year, a month, even in a day.
Local Mom Scoop has been contributing to the Pineapple Newspaper for a year and it’s been my pleasure sharing the Scoop with all of you.
When I look back at the articles I’ve written, I can see how my life and Local Mom Scoop has changed.
Here are a few things I’ve learned along the way as a mom and an entrepreneur.
I thought with my kids being older, those baby years would be behind me. Now, there are nightmares, sleep walking, stalling, colds, nose bleeds, and just general missing your mom.
There are times when you need to throw your phone in your purse and forget about it. It can be such a distraction around your family that you might miss out on some of the most cherished and hilarious moments.
Want to hide those flaws, put a spark in your relationship or get your glow on in photos, then you need a spray tan.
Over the past year, so many new boutiques have opened on the Avene for men and women. When I was in need of an outfit for an event or special occasion, I’ve reached out to the local boutiques to look and feel fabulous. I’ve also made some great relationships with owners and managers of these boutiques. You need personal attention? They are there to help.
After attending many events and being in front of photographers, I realized “one hand on the hip” is my pose. It may seem funny or weird when you are doing it, but your photos will look so much better.
I take my kids to birthday parties, ballet practice and soccer games. We have movie, karaoke, and beach nights and the list goes on. It seems when it’s time for work events, date nights or a girls night out, I’m made to feel like I’m the worse mother alive. Well, someone once told me to “give guilt the finger”. Walk out the door, do what you need to do because you’ll probably have a visitor in the middle of the night anyway.
Enjoy EVERY Day
There are amazing highs and some lows of being a mom. Scheduling, Sleep, making time for yourself all sound like the perfect combo, but they don’t always go as planned. So, have a dance party, drink a glass of wine, take a deep breath, smile more, watch a funny show, go to the beach, because you need to know that you are doing the best you can!
