Sometimes being EMPOWERED comes in many forms.

What a fun and empowering way to start off the school year! Especially for your kids! As many of you know, we’ve been running and INCREDIBLE and very VALUABLE contest ! And here’s how you can find out who won – it might be YOU!
It’s the eternal paradox of parenting. It’s Back-To-School time. Are you triumphantly dancing at the freedom or are you grabbing your tissues for your tears? No matter where you fit in that mix – here’s some perspective you won’t want to miss as you prepare yourself and your kids for the new school year.At the end of the school year – you can’t wait for summer! But by the end of the summer – for me anyway, I’m glad my kids are still alive! But the new school year is always more than just that, it’s a new beginning. A new school start.. The juxtaposition of “Thank GAWD they are back in school” and “Oh wait! You’re growing up so fast – too fast”.…. these bittersweet thoughts always smack you straight upside the head when the new school year rolls around. At least it does for me.

All the while strengthening their roots… but also one more step towards developing their wings to fly on their own. No matter their age, or their grade: the trepidation is the same, the glances back from them – no words needed, because, while their words say, “Momma, we’re big and growing you know…” ; their hearts and eyes need no words to say, “Momma, Daddy, I’m kinda scared, kinda excited— and I’m trying to act like I don’t need you.” My Precious Babies: From my heart to yours – I am saying the same thing. Here’s reminders to empower YOU and YOUR kids for this school year.
