In Case You Missed It:
Happy Friday, GEMs! Here’s a quick peek at some of our top stories of the week in case you didn’t have a chance to follow along . . .
Around here, we talk a lot about stepping out of our comfort zone. We know it’s not easy sometimes, but we firmly believe that you cannot get far unless you’re willing to do it every now and then. Take a look at this week’s 10 From GEM: 10 Ways To Stretch Your Comfort Zone to help make the task a little easier.
Dave talked about getting to know your kids’ personalities and helping them figure out and achieve the goals that they want in Our Story Begins: Understanding The Interest. It’s so important to be able to let your kids grow and flourish into what they want as opposed to what you want them to be.
Did you see our Good Enough Mother GIVEAWAY! Win A Caboodles Classic!? These are the best things on the planet to organize all the little stuff in your bathroom, or anywhere really – especially if you have a teenager with 5,000 different kinds of make-up for every area of their face. Stop by and enter to win one of your own!
Sometimes, it’s really about the little things when you’re in the throes of raising children. They don’t know (or need to know for that matter) that some weeks are more rough than others. Friday always comes at the end of the work/school week and no matter what you do, it’s always great to have a little something special planned on Friday nights. Take a look at Single Mom Slice Of Life: Yes! TGIF! and see how the tradition in Wendy’s family is still going with her big kiddos.
Growing up, everyone always told me that when movies came out based on books, I needed to be sure that I’d read the book before I went out to see the movie. In Moms Must Read: Read It Before You See It, Pam talks about five movies that started out as books that you won’t want to miss.
It’s just about the time of year for our annual Gem #SurvivorStories2015! This year is going to be the best one yet as Rene’s got something very personal to share. Check out Kicking Fear In The A**! Breast Cancer Survivors We Want YOU! #SurvivorStories2015 for more details.
Hope you all enjoyed the roundup and that you enjoy your weekend as well!
