See what happen when you refuse to let your little girl wear her favorite sundress on a cold, blustery winter day? You dress her funny on purpose and then she grows up to become mommy to a true fashionista.
Why was this look not on the runways during Fashion Week?
Not one mother out there has never said (or thought to herself) some snarky, mean thought about other mothers doing it wrong, meaning not the way we are doing this mothering thing that we do so maybe we should chalk up Gwynnie’s thoughts to her doing just that. We can then smirk and shake our heads over her being a lot clueless and get back to trying to do our very best being the mothers that we are.
You can support Girls on the Run — the charity on whose board Monika sits — and UCSD’s neurooncology lab where she is being treated, or you can go for a run tomorrow morning wherever you live, in a tutu or anything else you like. #ChangeTheConversation #KeepingItPositive
So apparently “selfie” is the word of the year, according to Oxford Dictionaries. So it would follow that one should post a selfie. Except for the fact that I am wearing no makeup and barely brushed my hair. I DID brush my teeth. Surely that’s a win. But I spent the day bare-faced, rag mop hair tied up into a pony tail, wearing sweats and a tee that did not match at all. I even went out in public like that. To take Daniel to school, to Starbucks, to pick up Hazel and Daniel from school, to the dance studio and to the pet store.The rest of my day was spent folding laundry with a kitten curled up on my lap…for a couple of hours. I could have moved her but…
It was that kind of a day.
This is the only kind of selfie I am willing to post today.
Last month I received a wonderful package in the mail made just for me, the nurse.
Because when one works in the hardest working profession taking care of the tiniest and sickest human beings at the best job ever one deserves a little pampering from time to time. Thank goodness for Scrubscriptions.
Scrubscriptions is the first nurse-inspired monthly medical scrub delivery service of brand new scrubs and pampering products to help you relax, renew and be pampered! Learning firsthand from family and friends in healthcare. Scrubscriptions was started because they wanted to highlight the fact that nurses need to be appreciated for the hard work they do and be provided a service that caters to them.
Joining Scrubscriptions, “scrubscribers” receive every month a box packed especially for them with full sized pampering products, health and wellness tips, a personal note of encouragement and a pair Dickies or Cherokee scrubs. The people at Scrubscriptions are right, sometimes it is the little things that count. Receiving this package indeed made my day.
And the scrubs are pretty nice too! Actually they are more than nice. I selected the “Pamper Me” package and received this pair of Dickies scrubs. They proved to be very comfortable and had that which almost every nurse wants/needs…LOTS of pockets. They were flattering too as I did receive lots of compliments during my busy 12 hour shift the other night. My only quibble is that I seem to be between sizes as large is a little bit too big (especially the top) and medium seems to be too small. But no worries. The customer service at Scrubscriptions is beyond excellent as they patiently spent the time to get my order sized just right for me. They truly went out of their way which, I have to say, made me feel all the more pampered.
I received no compensation for this product review. I “scrubscribed” and offered to share my experience because I believe that every nurse deserves to be pampered just a little.
Of course you will go your own way…as you always do.
It seems as though little Miss Fallon Elizabeth has practically overnight transformed from a chunky little toddler with dimples and rolls of chub into this tall, lean small child. Her parents need to slow this girl down…like right now.
