Go to the gym – lol, that’s funny. It’s hard enough getting to the gym let alone when your a mommy. Remember life before a kids when you could work, play, exercise and still have time left over to sit and enjoy some TV at the end of the night? Ahhhh…those were the days. Now you’re lucky if you get enough steps in throughout the day. Well good news. There is a great, easy 10 minute workout that you can do just about anywhere, anytime.
Exercise is so important that goes far beyond having a bikini body. It’s so important for your physical and mental health. With everything you have going on in your busy daily life, I promise you 10 minutes of exercise a day will make a big difference in how you feel. It’s so easy to come up with one excuse after another, but 10 minutes out of your daily grind will be a nice break and will not seem like a chore.
Do one set of each exercise with minimal rest in between. When you’ve done them all, gulp down some water and repeat twice more.

Is there anything worse than seeing your child fall down and hurt themselves? It just cuts through your heart to see them hurting, even if it’s just a little scrape. Just about any parent’s first reaction is to run over and kiss it better. That always seems to help stop the crying, acting as a loving kind of placebo effect. Well – good news, it is not just a gesture of love to make your little one feel better.
Research is showing that saliva has properties that can actually advance recovery, which is why cuts in the mouth heal quicker. Makes perfect sense right? Professor Vicente Torres, of the University of Chile, states “These findings open new alternatives to better understand the biology underlying the differences between oral and skin wound healing. We believe the study could help the design of better approaches to improve wound healing in tissues other than the mouth.”
Professor Torres uses all sorts of cool scientific medical jargon such as histatin -1 and a process known medically as angiogenesis. What does that mean you ask? I don’t know, I’m not a scientist, but I do know that if it’s going to make my little one feel better and heal quicker…I’m all for kissing it and making it better.

Just because you’re pregnant doesn’t mean you can’t rock a swimsuit at the beach or a pool this summer! In fact, you should show that beautiful mommy body off and be proud of it! The days of “showing some skin” are not over just because you are pregnant.
With that said, yes you absolutely can wear a swimsuit. When you get pregnant the days of showing some skin are not over. A lot of women are very hesitant to even think of the word swimsuit while being pregnant. We get so hung up on what we “should” look like. First off, never compare yourself to other people, especially other people who are not pregnant. Your going to have a differnt body than them, there’s no getting around it, but that is not a bad thing. You are pregnant and that’s a beautiful thing! Second – most people are admiring you, not judging you.
Whether you prefer to go conservative and cover up or accentuate your baby bump, you’ll find what your looking for on this list.

I’m sure you have heard of the new Wonder Woman movie by now. It’s sweeping the world as one of the best superhero movies ever. Not only is it an action packed, nerdfest for comic fans, but a positive rolemodel for our little girls to look up to. Wonder Woman is a strong, independant woman that knows no bounds and to make it even better, she’s killing it at the box office. Again…not just with the nerds.
Kids pay attention to and soak up everything. Even when we don’t even realize it, they are processing what’s going on around them. There is so much negativity out there in the world today, it is nice to know that Wonder Woman movie director Patty Jenkins has given our children something positive to absorb – especially the girls – but not just the girls.
Jenkins tweeted a list of kindergartners’ reactions to Wonder Woman, and no pun intended…but it is wonderful.
My producer just sent me this… ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE! This makes every hard day worth it. Thank you to whomever wrote it!!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ pic.twitter.com/3DzIaMueIh
