There is always an interesting story to how a child life specialist discovered the field and how they provide services in a non-traditional way.
I was thrilled to be interviewed by child life colleague, Katie Taylor, from Child Life On Call. Listen to the podcast and find out my journey to the child life profession, community based practices and advice for parents.
Every Friday after swim lessons the boys and I have date night together.
Pizza and frozen yogurt.
I love my time with them, but man I wish I could get a glass of wine. 😉
Do you have a special tradition with your kids?
Being a very busy mom of two, I look the part. You could spot me out in a sea of people, as I have the typical “mom look.” You know that mommy fashion; wearing the same pair of jeans or yoga pants four days in a row, t-shirt with a stain, hoodie and tennis shoes. My hair is in a pony, my makeup consists of chapstick and loose powder foundation to cover the dark circles under my eyes and the only jewelry that I wear is my wedding ring. Yep, the mom look.
Well, Monday night I had the opportunity to transform out of my dirty pair of yoga pants into clean, stain free attire, to attend The Center for HOPE‘s annual family holiday dinner. I had the opportunity to clean up my style with a new pair of pink pearl earrings from Pearl & Clasp.
The earrings were beautiful and made me feel more like a woman instead of just a mom. I haven’t worn a pair of earrings in 7 years, gosh that sounds terrible to say out loud, but it’s true. I found myself pulling my hair back behind my ears to show them off a little more.
This is the perfect time of year to get them as there are so many holiday events to attend. I can dress up my mom style into a modern, beautiful look.
These earrings come in freshwater, silver and pink. Click here to get a pair for yourself or a friend.
Don’t forget to stop by and see some of the other amazing jewelry pieces they have to fill your holiday shopping list, you won’t be disappointed.
