Little conversations can be big life lessons. Thoughts on parenting and preconceived notions.

"Mommy?" "Yes, sweetheart?" "When I grow up I'm going to marry John." We were driving, running errands while her big sister was at school. There is one month between Chica starting school and Bug starting school. Sometimes that month can seem v-e-e-e-e-r-y l-o-o-o-o-n-g.

I'm due for a home update - and today I give you a sneak peek at some of my favorite areas of the new/old house!
How is it almost September?! School begins next week, and it feels that we were only just ending the school year. While we didn't do any big vacations this year, we had a lot of time making memories as a family. We hit up the pool, visited family, welcomed new babies, tended our surprise garden, ...

If you've got a +Regal Cinemas and an +AC Moore near you, you could have a Wednesday of fun for $1!

We're a little over the mid-way point of summer for most families, particularly here in Chester County. School begins in a little over a month, and while there is still time to do fun things, lots of parents are finding their "Bank of Activity Ideas" running dry. I have a GREAT day of fun for ...

::drumroll::

Here's a peek at my second +Stitch Fix!  Feedback, please!


#StitchFix
(Before we get started: if you need a background in Stitch Fix, see my first post.) OK. So as I shared a few weeks ago, I did my first Stitch Fix. You can read about my initial Fix here. It was overall a great box, but slightly off target for my style and a little high in price.

In honor of our First Day of School tomorrow (#HoldMe), I'm sharing my love for the Fit & Fresh Bento Box Lunch Kit.
As a kid, I was anxious about the bus ride, about my teacher, about my classmates. I'd worry about getting lost, forgetting my homework or encountering that awkward moment when you accidentally call your teacher "Mom" in front of the entire class. (What, no one else had that happen?) ...

Does anyone else spend Sunday night dreading Monday?
Work. Grocery shopping. School supplies. Giving the girls a few more opportunities to make summer memories. Conference call. Edits on content. Get to the gym. Transfer money to the bank. I lay in bed and the thoughts overwhelm me. One after another pops into my head, creating layer upon layer of ...

To the parents who lack sleep, whose patience over feeding has all but run out, who is hitting a wall and worry things may never get better: it does. And these Seasons of Parenting evolve more quickly than you think. Hang in there!

I sit here, in the quiet of the morning, typing while I wait for my kids to wake up. It's after 8am, which has become the norm this summer. And while I've gotten used to my girls stumbling downstairs bleary-eyed at this time in the morning, I'm reminded of a time, not so long ago, ...

After some solid research, I'm putting out my Summer Reading List for 2015 in late July.

--> http://www.moderndaydonnareed.com/2015/07/stephs-summer-reading-list-2015.html 

#books   #summerreading  
OK, yeah, I know it's nearly the end of July. So posting a "Summer" Reading List seems a little late to the game. But here's the thing about Reading Lists: you can use them all the time. Like, why do we make this big deal about people reading in the summer? I know when I go to the beach or the ...

Who wants to win a pool?

We had a blast reviewing the +Backyard Ocean Swimming Pools Float-to-Fill Ring Pool. And I'm giving away one on my blog - head over to enter!

#Swimming   #Pool   #Giveaway  
One of the best parts about summer is swimming, right? As a kid, we didn't belong to a pool. So, I was always overly-ecstatic every time I was taken to a friend's pool. I thought it was pretty much the Best. Thing. Ever. When we couldn't make it to our friends' pools, we had one of those tiny ...

Whip up some S'Mizza on your grill tonight: Grilled S'mores Pizza! 

http://bit.ly/1R77G0q
So I had a culinary epiphany last night that might have made me the coolest mom that ever walked the earth. I was making Cheeseburger Stromboli (a variant to my Easy Homemade Stromboli that I was trying out), and had half a pound of raw pizza dough left over. What was I supposed to do with a ...

Story
Tagline
A pee a little every time I laugh or sneeze. I also have a dangerous relationship with ice cream.
Introduction

One day when Steph leaves this world, she will be known for many things: Imperfect mother. English teacher's wife. Baking a wicked apple crisp. Shopping yet remaining unfashionable. Struggling to discern the line between reality and fantasy on TV shows. Passionately eating ice cream. Peeing a little every time she sneezes or laughs. Deep thoughts. Laughable housekeeping. Secretly crushing on MacGyver. And being a world-class blogger. Join her as she adventures through blogging, life, marriage, cooking, parenting and bringing sexy back, but not necessarily in that order. You can find her at Confessions of a Stay-at-Home Mom.

Stephanie loves community.  When she started blogging over 3 years ago, it was Steph's intent to reach out to any and every mother of the world, so they would know they were not alone on this journey called Motherhood. Since then, she has successfully (and somewhat humorously) redefined The Modern Day Donna Reed. Her blog has gained a faithful readership who explores parenthood, cooking, learning, growing, watching great TV shows and unabashedly loving the 90's.  The Confessions of a Stay-at-Home Mom blog has a lively and growing Facebook Page where there is a constant chatter.

Steph is passionate about things she loves, and is influential when sharing about something she believes in. She is the social media director/blogger for her local farmer's market, West Chester Growers Market, and is a regular contributor to thePhilly Burb Moms sites and MetroKids magazine, as well as the Philadelphia City Manager for SavvySource..  Steph is also an active member of Philly Social Media Moms.
