When all things went on lockdown in March this year we, as parents, had an immensely difficult situation to explain to our children. Now, on the eve of the new school year, we are again faced with a seemingly impossible conversation. How can we make this easier?
In some capacity we will all be navigating a piece of our worlds virtually this fall. School. Work. Self-care. Exercise. After a summer of perhaps more low-key living, we again find ourselves on the cusp of a school year that will look completely different from anything we have ever seen before. As we enter this uncertainty (and “Into the Unknown” rings in my head… thanks, Frozen II), we'd would like to offer a few pieces of advice to you.
Mom guilt. It's real and it's 1,000 times more prevalent these days as we navigate new roles as mom-teacher, mom-nurse, mom-entertainer, mom-maid, mom-mom. How can we feel good while we're surrounded by chaos?
This is Mother's Day 2020. Each year this day is so very special for mothers and mother figures (and the little ones who love them). The need to share the special moments that we will remember for years to come is more important than ever as we continue to navigate our days. While most of us may be physically separated from our extended family members, here are a few of the memories we can still make on this day celebrating the love, kindness and strength of mothers.
Mother Love Challenge 2020 (MOLO) has been a whirlwind of ups and downs. Most importantly, it has been full of positive changes. I was so excited to start my first MOLO and really wanted to put my all into it.
I am so thankful that I was putting the time and effort into making myself a priority during the Mother Love Challenge (MOLO 2020). It helped me lay a solid foundation of support during these uncertain times.
