Favorite Everyday Activewear for Moms

As a human being, we all need to stay fit. As a mom, who birthed two children, I gained some weight that I'm working on losing. Having the right type of clothing for working out is ideal. My favorites are leggings and comfortable and flexible shoes, and I use these ALL the time, not just to work out. Activewear is so comfortable and adaptable that it has become my everyday mom-wear.I wear it at home, I wear it to Zumba classes, I wear it to the playground, and I especially wear it to go to the Zoo (because it's super humid…

There's been a lot of back and forth about kids doing chores around the house. Some say it takes away from letting a kid be a kid while others say it teaches responsibility. I think the real concern is, how it's enforced. Of course it's essential that a child does not grow up in prison-like conditions, where they are forced to do hard labor. But do you want your child to grow up to the opposite extreme of having no clue how to care for themselves or do basic things like cook and clean!? The key is: know your limits. There are great…
