ENOUGH!

I realized something yesterday while at a cookout for a friend.



Something pretty big!



Something awesomely amazing! Yes, I realize that probably isn't grammatically correct. Hush! It expresses how I feel!



The realization, epiphany, understanding that I came to…

No Justice When It Comes to Tween Body Image

No Justice When It Comes to Tween Body Image

Like most 10-year-old girls, my daughter loves to shop at Justice. So I was flipping through the latest Justice catalog that came in the mail, and I noticed a disturbing trend. Before I point out the obvious, see if you can see what's wrong with the following…

I Think I Left My Self Esteem at the Mall

So yesterday I took the entire day off to hang out with my son, who is not quite 14.  I told him that we could do whatever he wanted to do - the day belonged to him.  He said he wanted to go out to lunch.  I figured as much.  He also wanted to check out the latest "G.I. Joe" movie.  That would not have been my first choice, but what the heck.  It was his day after all and there were cute guys and some fighting and car chases.  I could roll with that.  But I was more than a little…

Virtuous Lip Gloss - Positive Words for the Lips

I could certainly relate to Sara Buntrock as she talked about her tween daughter when I met her this last January at a gift show. Being a mother of a tween myself (any child between the age of 7 to 12 is considered one), I know that they start having very mature tastes at a very early age (thank you Hanna Montana/Miley Cyrus and iCarly/Miranda Cosgrove).

Make-up is definitely one area that young girls love to explore. Although I do not encourage my young daughters to wear makeup, I…

Mommy's Make-up

When it comes to make-up I am no stranger. I’d say I exercise a reasonable restraint in resisting daily usage, but at the same time I enjoy the perfecting powers of foundation and blush on my tired mommy complexion. I never thought of my usage to be excessive or that it would have a negative influence on my daughters. But when my toddler started running up to me freshly done up with the make-up she took from her teenage Aunts room asking if she was “pwetty” I couldn’t help but wonder…. Was…

Frump Mama Vs Glam













"Kailie, stay with me."

"Cole, don't touch that, we keep our hands to ourselves."

"Victoria Grace! You must hold Mommy's hand," I say in a matter of 5 seconds flat as I attempt to navigate the department store in the mall with my daycare kids and my daughter while… Continue

What To Wearing My Closet





On Black Friday, rather than braving the crowds in the mall, I watched a What Not To Wear marathon. From 9:00a to 9:00p, the women of the

my house watched back-to-back-to-back episodes of Stacy London and Clinton

Kelly ripping apart the lack of fashion, setting closet rules and making 12

women look beautiful. We had to

wrestle the TV remote out of the hand of my father, and chase the males of the

house upstairs…

THIS IS MY BATTLEFIELD. MAYBE IT'S YOURS.

I had been losing this battle since I was 8. The battle's location? My mind. The battle's name? Heather against Herself (i.e., poor self esteem, low self image). I finally got ticked & sick of being defenseless on this battlefield--and worse--losing. So I sought God on how I could be a better warrior when this battle flares. And with endless love… Continue

The Prettiest Girl in the World

From birth, I tell my children how smart/sweet/handsome/pretty/amazing and miraculous they are. Constantly. This is the result:



Lily, you’re so pretty I said yesterday, as I made sure she was buckled in her booster seat.



I wish we looked alike, I sighed, staring at the daughter who inherited not one of my physical traits, save for the freaky double jointed thumb. Wouldn’t that be fun?



Noooooo!!!! She vehemently responded, without missing a beat. Because then I… Continue
