Back to School with The Children’s Place

Back To School Look #FirstDayPLACE

Today's post is a collaborative post with The Children's Place! Preschool has officially been underway for two weeks and Mabel has been loving it!  And of course I'm loving it because she's been having so much fun! All moms know that when school starts, it also means the addition of some cute new clothes for your little ones.  I love scoring some great deals when it comes to Mabel's clothes (because spending too much is overrated since little kids just grow way too quickly!) but of course I want quality and fashionable clothing too!  The ... continue reading...

A Very Late 6 Months

6 months

We are just about a week shy of turning 7 months old...so without further delay, here is Miss Millie's 6 month update: *This picture is fitting because she's itching her poor little arm.  Eczema is not a fun thing and no matter what we put on her skin, she still itches like mad.   She's been having to wear long sleeves and pants so that she won't itch her inner arms and behind her knees.  She also has to wear socks on her hands at night so she won't scratch at her face and scalp.  It's painful to watch.  We actually have her 6 month ... continue reading...

Friday Five

fampic

Time for another edition of the Friday Five!  ;) 1 - I'm trying to cut sodas out of my life (or realistically just limiting the amount I drink).  I've got it down to one can every other day and have seen a drop in weight just from the past few weeks.  I don't need all that excess sugar! 2 - Millie has to sleep with socks on her hands to prevent scratching.  Eczema is no joke people!  I'm hoping that at her next checkup, the doctor will consider giving her a prescription cream because the over the counter stuff just isn't cutting it! 3 ... continue reading...

“Mullie, Here’s a Pink Heart!”

Having fun with shapes and colors #playskoolcrew Pop Up Shape Sorter

We’ve had fun exploring shapes and colors with Playskool as a part of a sponsored post for Socialstars!  And as always, you wouldn’t see it on this blog if we didn’t genuinely love the products! #PLAYSKOOLCREW My girls... I can't tell you how much joy it brings me to see them playing together. I surprised them a few days ago with the Playskool Pop Up Shape Sorter and Mabel couldn't wait to show my her shape sorting skills...Millie once again just wanted to slobber all over the shapes (but hey, that's how babies learn so do your thang Miss ... continue reading...

I Can Never Have Enough…

This post brought to you by Carmex. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Modern Mommyhood. I can never have enough lip balm... And that little addiction probably started in middle school. I can't tell you how many tubes of it I have at home, on my nightstand, in my purse/diaper bag, in the car, in my husband's car...I could go on and on. I mean you gotta stash one in every room, right? Or maybe that's just me, lol! Carmex has always been one of my favorites and I'm pretty nostalgic about the little pot of it that I ... continue reading...

My Little Tumbler

sparkly gymnastics leotard

Last year, many of you will remember that we tried Mabel out in a ballet/tap class.  That lasted about two months (once a week).  Between Mabel having a tiny bit of separation anxiety, another child who was a bit rough, and ballet just being a little slow to keep her attention...we just felt it wasn't for her at the time.  I'm all for having our girls exposed to lots of things in life but I figure if they don't love it, why force them to do it?  So we waited a year. And what a difference a year makes! We entered the gym and Mabel was ... continue reading...

Where Am I Going With This?

Using laptop

Lately, I've been thinking about blogging a lot. How I want to change things up, tackle new topics, and how to reach more mommas out there. Most of you know that I used to be a teacher...and besides working with amazing little kiddos, I really enjoyed having my own income.  Nothing is better than independence, right?! But then I got pregnant and decided I wanted to stay at home with Mabel when she arrived.  That meant goodbye to my salary.  Yes, my husband works...but that doesn't take the place of a double income home.  Not to mention, ... continue reading...

Surprize! Stride Rite and Target Do It Again!

This post brought to you by Stride Rite. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Modern Mommyhood. *I wrote this post two weeks before Mabel started school...so I apologize that it's posted late!  She actually wore her new shoes 4 out of the 5 days last week!*  ;) Back to school shopping is in full swing! And with Mabel starting preschool in a few weeks, it's time to get her hooked up with a few new pieces of clothes and shoes (because her feet grow non-stop!). You all know that I've posted before about Stride Ride and how we ... continue reading...

Get Your Face On – e.l.f. Edition

Get Your Face On - e.l.f. Edition - Super simple and quick on the go makeup tutorial!

So the other day I went a little crazy buying e.l.f. products (eyes lips face...not Santa's minions) and posted a pic of my loot here. And I was surprised with the feedback that I received on Facebook!  Apparently a lot of you have some favorites of this brand (myself included) so I figured I'd share my thoughts after creating a super simple/quick on the go face with just e.l.f products.  FYI - e.l.f. has no clue who this momma is nor do they know about this post, lol! Now I'm not going to talk about every single product I bought the ... continue reading...

Friday Five

It's Friday, so here's another five coming at ya: 1. - I bought 4 fall candles from Bath and Body Works.  Fall is probably my favorite time of the year and you can never own too many fall scented candles (this one called Sweater Weather smells amaazing).  Also before anyone freaks out at the price, didn't spend close to $100 on candles, lol!  There was a deal going on for 2 for $24.  ;) 2. -Mabel has started crying everyday during pickup at school.  The first two days I couldn't figure out why...and then yesterday she told me that ... continue reading...
