Gabi Shull was just nine-years-old when she was diagnosed with cancer in her right knee. In order to save her life, doctors were left with no choice but to amputate her leg. They removed her knee and then reattached her foot backwards in order to give her the best chance of walking comfortably in a prosthetic.
The tiny dancer recovered, but she was left with a decreased ability to dance en point for her ballet classes. Things seemed hopeless on … Keep Reading!!!
I am going to get in the habit of these weekly wrap-ups because…
a. every blogger and their mother seems to do it.
b. I’m clearly a conformist.
So here are the weird things I read this week when I wasn’t sitting at Starbucks making frantic calls to people about funding for the water project in Ethiopia.
First up is very timely and slightly prophetic, since it deals with Starbucks AND water…frozen water to be exact.
Someone just filed a … Keep Reading!!!
Kid president is at it again with his adorable charm and wise words. He recently created a short for Mother’s Day about supporting mothers. He pointed out that in our society it’s common and somewhat accepted for mothers to shame their peers based on their parenting choices.
In his segment Kid president dons a ridiculous wig and reveals the character of a judgmental mother.
Hey everyone… I feel like I haven’t discussed some more personal things in awhile. I’ll use this post as a little update.

In November I was in … Keep Reading!!!
Did you know that Walt Disney Productions was the first production company ever to use the word “vagina” on film?

Today would have been Audrey Hepburn’s 87th birthday, which seems pretty incredible given the fact that her image as a young woman still is one of the top telling images on merchandise, grossing multi-millions of dollars every year.
Most of millennials know the icon for her role in Breakfast at Tiffany’s as well as from other classic hollywood movies, but what most people don’t know was her strong desire to be a mother and her heart for humanitarian work.
The internet is once again in having a fit over another breastfeeding image.
Terry Richardson posted a photo of his girlfriend, Alexandra Bolotow, breastfeeding their twin sons as a tribute to the new mom on Mother’s Day.
The photo was a very raw shot, capturing the very relatable moments of the newborn stage. The image featured Bolotow nude and tandem breastfeeding her twins in bed. Any new mom can tell you this is a very normal depiction of breastfeeding and … Keep Reading!!!

Prom – the magical season of festivity and romance, not to mention the outrageous “promposals.” Whether your daughter is going with her group of friends, or her true love, or the guy who really stood out with his promposal, she is going to need a dress; and this means you’re going to have to endure prom dress shopping.
It’s pretty serious stuff, finding that perfect dress. Even the most laid-back moms can get frazzled. Panic can set … Keep Reading!!!
I’ve been writing for I Am Not the Babysitter for a few months now and the one thing I’ve noticed is an overwhelming sense of community. Not everyone that follows the page takes the same approach to parenting or lifestyle choices but no one seems to bash anyone. It’s a wonderful concept but what happens when the topic of something other than parenting or breastfeeding comes up? I was inspired by the live Q & A with Dr. … Keep Reading!!!
If there’s one thing that technology hasn’t yet made easier, it’s finding healthcare practices you and your family can trust. From finding a pediatrician for your children to an optometrist for your spouse, online reviews aren’t quite up to speed. That makes them less than helpful. So when the time comes to start taking the kids to the dentist, what can you do? For many moms, finding the right dentist for the family isn’t an easy task, particularly when figuring … Keep Reading!!!
