MOMtor Monday – Staycations

It’s my MOMtor Monday today, so I’m guest posting over at Mothering From Scratch.

Today’s post is all about Staycations.  As a staycation veteran, I was only too happy to share what makes a great staycation.  I even dished about the one that wasn’t so good.

Why I’m not crafting Easter Eggs (MOMtor Monday)

no easter eggs for meI’m not planning any Easter Egg crafts with my kids this week.

We have a ton of ways that we’ll be celebrating Easter, but crafts involving bunnies, eggs, plastic grass, or colorful candy just aren’t on our list.

I adore seeing all those cute crafts on Pinterest.  There’s nothing wrong with them.  They just aren’t for me.

I’m dishing one of my deep dark secrets as a mom over at Mothering From Scratch today.

MOMtor Monday – Mothering from Scratch

Some time in the past three months, the lovely ladies at Mothering from Scratch invited me to be a MOMtor on their blog.  I was super geeked out about it and probably annoyed my husband by talking about it a wee bit more than I should have.

What’s a MOMtor?  So glad you asked.   Per Mothering From Scratch…

A MOMtor is a seasoned mentor who shares advice, wisdom and life lessons which help us in our mothering journey. These carefully selected mothers dish out their experience with a side dish of compassion. Our goal is to leave you wanting more.

I’m honored.  I’m tickled pink.  And I love it.

Today is my third post as a MOMtor.  I love the timing of this post because it’s the advice I really needed this morning.  I hope you like it  too.
