Add a little flirty flair to your style

Looking to update your wardrobe? Maybe add a little flair when you go out to run errands, are at work or just out with friends?
I found something I really like. As a mom, I’m always trying to just dress up a little, add a sexy hourglass shape and hide flaws.
Chic Star has an amazing shirt that can really make your night out. It’s called the Flounce Ruched Ruffle Belt Shirt.
It can dress up a pair of jeans or be worn at work. This really appeals to my mom friends who are trying to add a little sexy flair to their wardrobe and hide flaws. Even better, it’s in plus-size which gives added comfort so you can show off curves without squeezing into a top that’s too tight. The wrap around design lets me adjust the fit so that it’s comfortable. I love the fact that it is a v-neck style that lets me accentuate my positive assets. :)
The shirt is great because it is not too hot, but adds style with light comfort.
Black Plus-Size Flounce Ruched Ruffle Belt Shirt
I’m really liking Chic Star’s designs. It’s not expesive, and adds a edgy, punk or vintage 40-50′s flair to your wardrobe.
Why not look posh when you drop the kids off this week or get compliments when you’re at work or just picking up coffee.
I can’t imagine a better pick me up.

How My Breasts Saved the World

I have to give up nursing. It’s more of a habit for the two of us now than it is about nutrition. I have become sicker than ever and I have tried taking all meds that you can with breastfeeding. I hope to get some sleep tonight without this dreaded cough. The new meds I have can’t be taken if you’re nursing. So here we go on another adventure.

I have tried for months to get my kid to take a bottle and sippy cup, but by accident he started taking a straw. I offered it to the wrong kid and lo and behold he drank it. Surprise, life is a box of chocolates.

Looking back over my nursing adventure, I went from:
I’m not doing that,
to I’m doing it!
to this is convenient
to this is not convenient
to this is a wonderful bonding experience
to I can’t believe you’re growing so fast.

I heard about this book as I was googling weaning.
It’s called How My Breasts Saved the World: Misadventures of a Nursing Mother, by Lisa Wood Shapiro.
I wonder how this woman’s experience is similar to my own.

Uh, off to tuck him in again, don’t give in, don’t give in, don’t give in….

Wtf

Why is it that when we become a
Mom, no one tells us we become supermom to everyone?
Only we don’t get super powers.

It’s that time of year- suicide season

The holiday season is not filled with holiday cheer for all people. Statistically people commit suicide during this time of year more than any other season. Holiday stress, competitive pressure, family issues and even seasonal depression due to lack of sun.
Over the holiday break a neighbor mom killed herself and left behind a teenager.
Moms, please reach out to each other. We can all put up a front that we are “supermoms”, but we are all human. Talk to each other, tell someone if you are having a hard time. Talk to a neighbor, friend, co-worker, another mom or counselor.
Please don’t do anything selfish. Your child loves you unconditionally and doesn’t deserve single day without you.
