Day 10: Send An Email To An Old Friend

Have your old friendships survived motherhood? And if the answer is “yes”… …are they hanging on by a thread? It’s normal for relationships, no matter how close, to change after you have kids. You have less time than you once did for socializing, and even when you manage to get out, you might find that […]

Day 9: Fill One Bag With Outgrown Toys

 A couple of years ago, I realized my living room was completely monopolized by toys. Most of which none of my children had touched in years. Clara was three and a half, and well beyond many of the squishy blocks, feel-y board books, and rattle-eared stuffed toys that still dominated the toy bins, but I’d held […]

Day 8: Make Your Bed (Create A Clean Morning Habit.)

 I know, I know. I’ve been harping on making the bed for five years now, and if you’ve been reading my stuff long, maybe you’re sick of hearing about it. But adding that daily practice into my life has made a huge difference in the way I feel, think, and function throughout the day. From my […]

Day 7: Reflect On Your Progress!

  Congratulations and Yay, You! You made it through the first week of Beyond Baby Boot Camp. I hope you had fun setting aside little pockets of time to focus on your own needs, dreams, and goals. On Sundays, rather than an activity, I’m going to ask you to reflect on a few questions about […]

Day 5: Throw out your grody old underpants.

  See those? They’re maternity underwear. I got them while pregnant with baby #3 – eleven years ago. And I gave birth to my last baby over five years ago. So why do I still own – sorry, not just own, but WEAR – these hideous beige-gray maternity panties? (Trust me, they look even worse in person.) Well, […]

Day 4: Declutter a small space.

Is there a spot in your house that looks like this? If you’re like most of us, I’m sure the answer is “yes.” A few months ago, I posted at The Happiest Home about my spice drawer, which had gotten completely out of control. When I had babies on my hips and toddlers hanging on my […]

Day 3: Greet Your Spouse At The Door

  Don’t worry. This picture is NOT the kind of thing I’m talking about. As much as I love Mad Men, I’m not so much a subscriber to the 1950s “clean the house, brush your hair, apply lipstick and meet your husband at the door with a cocktail” marriage mentality. What I DO mean is just this: […]

Day 2: Clean Out Your Purse.

  See this guy? Earlier this morning I extracted him from my purse, where he’s been living for at least a month. Probably longer. I don’t know how he got there, but I’d see him from time to time, when digging around for lip balm or my wallet. Every time I saw the toy I thought “Huh?” […]

Day 1: Create a 5-minute self-care ritual.

Welcome to Beyond Baby Boot Camp! I am beyond excited to introduce the first daily activity, but first, I want to share a little story. This is a picture of me earlier this morning. I’d meant to be showered, made up, and camera-ready early so I could officially launch the program right after my kids […]
