Why Being A Girl Is Awesome

When do your children return to school? My preschooler doesn’t go back until next week, and while a few of the days have felt extraaaaaa looooong, lol, I’ve been experiencing the greatest joy in watching my daughters interact. 

Lily is fiesty as ever and most certainly a terrific two 😬, and my Alex seems so mature!!

They keep growing up on me and as much as I protest they don’t listen! Ha!

This age yields lots of matching outfits (I will hold on to the twinning for as long as I can), and our days are chalk full of interesting conversations.  

Inspired by these adorable and empowering dresses from Princess Awesome, tonight’s bedtime discussion was fueled by the question “What makes girls so awesome?”. Here’s what my 4 year old had to say!

Motherhood is certainly not perfect.

Small Shop Spotlight: Bela Bracelets

A hair tie on the wrist is the universal symbol for a woman on the go. You never know when you’ll need to pull that hair out of your face, replace one that breaks, or lend one to a friend in need. 😉 Seriously, everybody needs them but they’re a far cry from stylish. Until now!

Bela Bracelets is today’s Small Shop Spotlight feature, and their hair tie bracelets are a must-have.
