Happy Mother’s Day! Hope you guys are being spoiled rotten. And by “spoiled rotten” I mean plenty of those fierce little hugs that squeeze as hard as those little arms possibly can, coffee in bed, and a day free from cleaning/washing dishes/emptying the dishwasher. (That last one is my own personal hell.)
And for those of you who went out for Mother’s Day Eve, high-freaking five. Let’s make this a thing next year.
Big, HUGE News
We’re getting a new contributor! And to be even more of a horrible tease….we’ll announce her next week. If you’d like to the be the first to know, follow our Instagram (@themomedit) – we’ll announce there first. (Plus we have a few sneak peeks up, if you can guess….)
Speaking of Instagram…. Liketoknow.it has just launched a new Family channel! We’re thrilled. It’ll be an easy place to find inspiration for bump style, nursery decor, kids stuff, and mama essentials. (Personally, I’m hoping sneakers will be featured on the regular.)
Sorry, Kid. House rules. A tank top for sleep-deprived mamas.
Near, Far, Wherever you are….we will be wearing this, um, “designer” tee. (Hilarious find, Scotti!)
A few favs from IG Stories: If you’ve been watching my Instagram Stories (@shanachristine), you’ll notice that my outfits follow our crazy weather. Specifically, these silver lame track shorts one day…to these taupe, waterproof Sorels a few days later. (I also tried these boots, but the taupe Sorels won.)
Hey PA – Vote on Tuesday! Tuesday is Pennsylvania’s 2017 Primary Election. Philly.com has a helpful rundown of what’s on the ballot, but if you live in the city of Philadelphia, consider voting for Rebecca Rhynhart for City Controller. I’ve had the opportunity to meet her on several occasions, and not only is she seriously pumped to take on this thankless (and frankly, boring-sounding) job, but she has a ton of fresh ideas to save this city some major cash….compared to her opponent, who has been in office for 27 years. [snore] If you want deets on what she has up her sleeve (or just want to know what the heck City Controllers do), she outlines most of it here.
Such a sweet song for Mother’s Day – thanks for the find, Cam!
Lastly, I just wanted to say again how thankful we are for this little community. I was blown away by the supportive, understanding responses to the latest letter from A, and as we sat there reading through them (with tears streaming down our faces), the burden that is so very heavy felt lighter for a few moments. To the Mamas who are caring for sick children, we are saying a special prayer for you this Mother’s Day. For your strength to keep going, but also for your continued ability to shine the light for your child, even as darkness threatens. I stand in awe of your courage and grace.
Happy Mother’s Day.
