Defy Gravity

I think I may have mentioned recently that Ariel’s obsessed with Wicked, the musical.  Obsessed may not be strong enough…. she is possessed by it!!

I now know all of the lyrics, where the pauses are, which parts she wants to skip over, and which parts get replayed.  Over and over.

I found this awesome Wicked graphic over at Amazon and am thinking of getting it for her bedroom as a Christmas gift.  I have absolutely no idea about installing something like this, so I’d love any tips you have.

So excited to have a new Taylor Swift tune today!!  And it’s perfect that it came at the beginning of the school year because while the summer was drama-free, I’m fairly certain school will not be.  :(

What to do about all the haters?  Shake it off!!  I love it!!

(Of course, I’ve been telling Ariel that for years but now that Taylor Swift is saying it…..!)

Tween’s {IRL} First Day of School Outfit

What I have to wear on the first day of school

Yes, her school mandates certain styles and designs.  Nothing sheer.  Must have a sleeve, even just a cap sleeve.  No skin above the knee can show.  So. Very. Painful.  For both of us.  I am all about the uniform right now.  It would be so simple.

Last week, we posted Ariel’s Dream First Day of School Outfit.  Today, back to reality.  ;)

Tween’s {Dream} First Day of School Outfit

If only there wasn’t such a thing as a dress code at school!!  Sadly, all skin above the knee must be covered… so none of these bottoms would be appropriate.  But a tween can dream, right?

Remember #Batkid?

It was the feel-good social media moment of last November.  One little boy’s wish, to be a hero, was granted and those of us who watched won’t ever forget the warm fuzzy feeling it gave us.

Now a documentary is in the works to tell the story-behind-the-story of that magical day.  Want to help it become reality?  Check out the Batkid Begins project on Indiegogo here.   Be sure to read down the page to relive the wonder of that fabulous day.  And have your tissues handy.  Again.

Keep Momming

THE POST BELOW MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. FOR MORE DETAILS, PLEASE SEE OUR DISCLOSURE NOTICE.

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Shire. I received a promotional item to thank me for participating.

As an actress, a public health advocate and former journalist, Holly Robinson Peete has seen it all. And as a mother of four, she’s encountered just about every parenting challenge you can imagine. One of her biggest challenges as mom is building and maintaining a close relationship with her teenage daughter, Ryan.

The mother-daughter relationship is a unique one, and that dynamic can be even trickier during the tween years. Yet sometimes, people dismiss certain behaviors as “typical tween girl behavior” when those behaviors can be symptoms of something more serious. Research suggests that girls are more likely than boys to report having mostly inattentive Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) symptoms. Since inattentive symptoms can be less noticeable than hyperactive and impulsive symptoms, it is important that moms know what to look for.

I’m proud to be joining forces with Shire, CHADD and Holly Robinson Peete to announce the launch of keep momming, a new public service initiative geared towards the moms of tween girls to raise awareness of ADHD.
