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 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 19: Think About Your Mom Uniform

By the time I had my last baby, my wardrobe was, well, a hot mess. Cobbled together from Target’s “I’m not sure I like this but it’s 70% off so I should try, right?” pieces that I bought without even thinking about the other “Ugh I think I hate this color but it’s 60% so […]

Day 18: Quit Something.

Are you still getting BabyCenter emails reminding you that your “baby” is 49 months old? …Still getting regular emails from the online store where you used to buy diapers – even though your little one has been potty-trained for a year? …Still paying dues to a mom’s group you haven’t been to in months?

Day 16: Move Your Body. Even A Little Bit.

How do you feel in your body right now? Strong, confident, and energetic? Or tired, sore, and stiff? I’ve definitely been the latter. When I was in an earlier stage of motherhood, I was fortunate enough to be able to stay slim through the “breastfeeding huge babies and running after toddlers” diet. Unfortunately, that didn’t […]

Day 12: Toss out your old makeup.

Just when did you buy that lipstick rolling around in the bottom of your purse? How about that gummy mascara currently adhering your lashes to your lids whenever you open your eyes too wide? If the answer is “I don’t remember” or “Gosh…I guess I got it before I had kids,” it’s time to declutter your cosmetics […]
