This weekend my husband and I are taking a minute to celebrate his birthday with special friends. A baseball game, a good meal, some yummy desserts — we’re away from our kids but we’re loving being together. Our kids benefit when we take care of ourselves, too!
As we parent, it’s all about teaching our kids to be okay with failure, learning from their mistakes and fears along the way. Let’s aim for “brave, not perfect,” as @reshmasaujani would say.

Clocked out of work. Went straight to yoga because “doesn’t it feel amazing to have an hour every once in awhile to move and to breathe and just be however you want to be?” Yes, yes it does. Take a break, mamas. Your kids will thank you. @yoyoyogis
What are your holiday plans tomorrow? Mine include sleeping in, taking it easy, and spending quality time with my family. Make sure, in all the hustle and bustle, to take some time this Fourth of July to rest and relax with the people you love most. 🇺🇸
Hey beautiful! That’s how someone started an email to me today. It’s so important that we show our kids the beauty in their worlds but also in themselves and, mama, let’s get real: Especially when it comes to healthy self-esteem for our daughters, it starts with how we talk about our own bodies. Talk about yourself the way you hope your kids will talk about themselves one day. 💛
