There is always an interesting story of 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 a 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.
