If you didn't get a chance to send a little sidewalk chalk love to the kids in your neighborhood this week, it's never too late. Check out these fantastic pics from Everyday Heartbeats for more inspiration. If you want to own this project from A-to-Z, you can even make your own chalk.
If your mother guilt is kicking into high gear with the start of the new school year, never fear. Devra and Aviva will give you permission to tell yourself (and your kids!) the truth and get on with being happier and guilt-free. Brene Brown from Ordinary Courage offers yet another alternative--why not celebrate finishing the first week of school with some good old fashioned family fun?
If you find yourself (like me these days) in constant negotiation mode with your firstborn--the future world class litigator of your family--console yourself with this good advice on keeping things positive. Or better yet, write a love letter to that child who's a little tough for you these days. You'll find yourself warming up and getting the energy you need to meet the challenges of this age and stage.
If you are a mother to toddlers and lamenting the fact that there will be no back-to-school for you this week, you are invited to cozy up to the good companionship of these mother interviews--a perfect way to spend naptime. And if that toddler won't leave you be in front of the computer, pull her on your lap for some worthwhile fun here.
