Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be A$%holes

Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be A$%holes

My Mom is a HUGE Willie Nelson fan, so I grew up listening to this song.  And yes, I took a few liberties with the title and even included an “unkind” word, which could be considered a bit risqué for someone with a kids’ brand.  But I assure you, that language is meant for you- to catch your attention.  It, or any words like it, are not used in any of our Toolkits for your kiddos (I promise!)- although I have to admit my son has probably heard me say it a time or two.  But the message is clear and I know you know what I'm talking about.

So- here we are, discussing how scary it is to be raising a son in today’s world. 

But not for the reason that you may be thinking.  It’s scary for me- because of the overwhelming responsibility I feel to raise a compassionate and empathetic little boy that treats everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, with respect and kindness.

And it’s hard.

Another For-Purpose Kid is born!  Why we should be raising kids like Prince William & Princess Kate

Another For-Purpose Kid is born! Why we should be raising kids like Prince William & Princess Kate

Hear ye, hear ye- another For-Purpose Kid is born! 

YES!  Princess Kate gave birth on Monday to Royal Baby #3, a bouncing baby boy whose name is still TBD, although the “experts” are saying that Arthur, Albert & James are the most likely (at least that’s what people are betting on in the UK).

I’ve always been fascinated by everything “Royal Family”

…and even have the commemorative spoons and mugs to prove it. 

Perhaps it stems from the year I lived in London after college, or perhaps it’s because I grew up like most girls in the US, where the idea of being a princess sounded magical and wonderful. 

However, most of us have grown up now and have realized, along with the many stories written about fallen princesses, that being a princess is probably a great deal harder than it looks.

With that being said, there is something so relatable and “down to earth” about Prince William and Princess Kate and like most of the world, I’ve become captivated by them, and the royal family, once again.
