Day 29: Dream Big (But Start Small.)

Over the last 28 days, we’ve made some great progress, haven’t we? We’ve cleaned up our living spaces, strengthened our most important relationships, and even took some time to focus on style. Now it’s time to explore some slightly scarier terrain. When I work with moms, this is often the hardest part of the process for […]

Day 26: ReDo Your ‘Do

When I was a relatively new mom, I got the sassiest shaggy ‘do! …and then, I let it grow and grow, and got bad in-between maintenance haircuts, and went too long between trims and color, until my in-the-now circa-2001 shag turned into an in-the-never overgrown-Shaggy-from-Scooby-Doo look by 2003. Maybe you can relate. When you have a […]

Day 25: Clean out under the car seats.

 On a scale of 1-10, how tragic is your car’s interior? If you’re like many moms emerging from the toddler phase, the answer is probably “11.” It’s survival, right? When you have babies and tiny tots screaming at you from the backseat, you’ll do almost anything to calm them down, including chucking toys, juice boxes […]

Day 24: Re-Imagine Your Post-Baby Family Life

I remember one day shortly after Clara potty-trained, looking at my five kids and thinking “Holy cow – we’re a family.” For so long I’d thought of my kids more as individual people to be cared for, one after another: first helpless babies, then busy, daring toddlers, and so on; a collection of small people who needed to be […]

Day 23: Add Some Grownup Media To Your Daily Mix

When my oldest kids were very small, I spent a lot of time in the car. A lot of time in the car. You know how it is: I didn’t always have anywhere specific to go, and taking babies and toddlers into the store or library was sometimes too overwhelming to contemplate. But I didn’t want to sit around […]

Day 22: Make That Phone Call You’ve Been Putting Off

Is there a phone call weighing heavy on your mind right now? You know the one. The appointment you need to make to get your hair cut, or your teeth cleaned. Or the voice mail you need to return from an estranged relative or the library (yes, it’s time to admit that book is hopelessly […]

Day 21: Three weeks down!

  Wow – we’re done with the third week of Beyond Baby Boot Camp. You’re making an investment in yourself, which can feel uncomfortable at times. Let’s all remember that when you’re happier, more inspired and better rested, you’re naturally a more effective, more engaged mom and a healthier role model for your kids. I’m proud of you! […]
