You guys know I love to read, but I’m also super picky when it comes to what I will read, and for good reason. If I’m going to use the rare free time I have to read a book, I want it to be WORTH IT. Which is why I’m always asking friends for recommendations on books that they really loved. Today on the blog we have Aimee Coates, mom to Amanda, age 1, reviewing Love Warrior: A Memoir by Glennon Doyle Melton…
I like to call Gabby Bernstein my “gateway drug” to meditation. Even though I was a kids yoga teacher and would try to teach meditation to the kids in my classes, I would usually pretend like I didn’t “have” the time to meditate. It wasn’t until I started reading more of Gabby’s stuff that I came across the one sentence that really jolted me into making the time to meditate and be mindful.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, even as a mom of five kids I sometimes feel like I’m doing things for the very first time. All kids are different, and they all do things on their own schedules, in their own style, and potty training is definitely one of those things.
With my oldest, I boot camped him into potty training. He HAD to be potty trained in order to go to his preschool program, so we did a no pants party all week and pretty successfully pulled it off in just a few days. With my second, it was a little bit trickier, and I came up with a whole new game plan. With my third, well, I have to tell you guys he pretty much potty trained himself, I can’t take any credit for it. Now with my fourth I’m back to having zero idea how to start, but I know we need to start, soon.
