I have amazing friends who create amazing mom-hacks! Here’s one of my favorites for keeping the kids entertained on planes and at restaurants!
And how do I know all this, you might be asking? Well, it’s part experience working with a huge variety of people and personalities and finding successful approaches for each of them, it’s also part research and reading late into the night about this stuff (Im a huge nerd about healthy living!) and it’s part based on my own experience as I struggled through years of disordered eating and body image issues.
We have enough mom guilt these days. Let’s take a shift and look at the world a bit differently. What if you didn’t judge and, instead, you imagined a world where the guy riding your bumper on the freeway is really in a rush to see the birth of his baby, or the rude person at the store just got the worst news of her life and is having to navigate chores and deal with trauma at the same time, or that mom who is looking at her phone is…actually an awesome mom. Try it out! It makes the world feel so much better! Check out this post I wrote for the Mid Peninsula City Moms Blog!
