Summer Sunsets and Back-to-School

These last precious moments of summer pave the way for the annual back-to-school countdown. Are you ready to rumble? While we’d love for all our days to be relaxing, purposefully lazy and carefree, we know that’s not reality. Darn it. Sounded good though, didn’t it? How do we make that transition smoother? What’s a mom to do? You’ve gotten used to the kids being around, if only for a few weeks. With the change in season, come changes in schedules and stress-levels potentially on the rise. Here are a few quick tips to… Read more Summer Sunsets and Back-to-School

Sex Isn’t Just to Procreate-It’s Important for Self-Care

Let’s face it – summer is hot. This summer is no exception, especially in the Midwest where the temperatures are hotter than the sub-tropics. What better time to talk about sex than when it’s hot? Sex is hot, just like summer. Well, it can be if you want it to be. Your version of sex doesn’t have to match “those” kinds of movies or involve any fancy moves or technics. Sex is what you want and need it to be. Whether it’s more about intimacy or steamy, sweaty action, sex is part of… Read more Sex Isn’t Just to Procreate-It’s Important for Self-Care

50 Shades of Grey Mama Style

Did you know that one of the two most common complaints women report to their doctors is low libido? Well, the popularity of the new novel 50 Shades of Grey certainly suggests otherwise. So where’s the disconnect? Check out what Mollee Bauer of pregnancy.org had to say about this. “It’s not easy feeling sexy in regurgitated breast milk and hair that is matted with mashed bananas (which of course has been strategically placed by your wee one). Sex and motherhood – is that an oxymoron? These days, it seems that… Read more 50 Shades of Grey Mama Style

Dads Matter Too!

We pay a lot of attention and respect to moms, why can’t we do the same for dads? Father’s Day is a great way to start. Father’s Day isn’t just another “Hallmark Holiday.” It’s a time to honor the other half of the parenting equation. While there are exceptions to that equation – mainly single moms, families with two moms or no parent left at all – dads can and really do play a key role in their children’s lives. Dads shouldn’t be passed over or forgotten. Unfortunately over the… Read more Dads Matter Too!

Battling the Bulge While Embracing Equilibrium

We all have our battle scars when it comes to our bodies and losing weight. I’m living proof of someone who often turned herself into a guinea pig – all in the name of getting healthy…and possibly finding balance. “Hi, my name is Mollee and I’ve struggled with my weight for over 15 years. I am a self-admitted foodie who historically has had a hedonistic relationship with food.” While saying that “out loud” doesn’t magically make the pounds disappear, acknowledgment and transparency does at some point. Frustrated at having tried… Read more Battling the Bulge While Embracing Equilibrium

Love ThySelf-To Thine Own Self Be True

There are bucket lists, rainy day lists, pros and cons lists, but what about a DO list? Do you have a list of things you actively want to do for yourself but just “can’t find the time?”  Valentine’s Day is a perfect time to put that plan into practice. While most people associate Valentine’s Day with lovers, and couples, kids and families, the perception that we can love ourselves gets a raised eyebrow. I’m not talking about THAT kind of love. I’m hinting about love of self and pampering ourselves… Read more Love ThySelf-To Thine Own Self Be True

Making Your Resolutions Stick!

January is coming to an end and our New Year’s resolutions are in full swing…or are they? How do we make the resolutions we committed to come to fruition? These ideas might help you get rid of bad habits and kick-start that new phase in your life. 1. Pick just one thing. If you’re aiming to change your life, don’t try to do it all at once. Pick one area or thing to change and start there. 2. Plan ahead. To ensure success, research the change and plan ahead so… Read more Making Your Resolutions Stick!

Call for a Self-Care Revolution

Self-care should be a revolution – it’s an idea so basic that many people, especially women don’t even think to take the time or make an effort to be a “cult of one,” to take care of themselves first. That’s where this self-care challenge comes in.  Day one’s challenge of chanting the mantra, “Taking care of me benefits others I love,” sounds simple and it should be in theory. But we tend to clutter our lives with complications and excuses. I take this mantra to heart lately. I can’t do… Read more Call for a Self-Care Revolution
