Motivating Mom Stephanie

Motivating Mom Stephanie is a mom of a toddler and works from home on her business raceHer. She has some great advice for taking care of yourself first, giving yourself grace or calling yourself out when needed.

…moms get in constant caregiver mode and it can feel weird or indulgent to do something for yourself but its all about balance and remembering you are important too!

I love hearing from other moms and how they stay committed to a healthy lifestyle and model healthy habits for their children. Stephanie is a mom who works from home, and has figured out she can’t do it all. She has really inspiring advice about finding the time to take care of yourself, trading off “Parent #1 duties, and taking help where you can get it to be a better Mom!

Mother's Day Experiences: Gift Experiences instead of the traditional flowers

Mother’s Day Experiences Instead of Gifts

There is something better to give Mom for Mother’s Day than a card, gift, or flowers. Giving Mom the chance to experience something, take an outing, go and do something without the kids, or spend some time pampering herself is the best gift ever! Here are some great ideas for Mother’s Day Experiences instead of gifts.

I always love giving the gift of an experience rather than a physical gift. I like to think of these types of gifts for my kiddos and, since Mother’s Day is coming up, I’m thinking about something unique to get for my own mom.

Another great bonus about gifting an experience is that it’s something you can get last minute from your computer, but it is still something that comes from the heart and is sure to impress and show you care.

Here are some fantastic Mother’s Day Experiences you can give or share with your own mom this Mother’s Day!

Here is Day 4 of our WDW 2017 trip. You can find Day 1, Day 2 part 1, Day 2 Part 2, and Day 3 here.
