Two years ago, when my oldest daughter started to show interest in becoming a ballerina, I started looking for a dance studio for her to get some formal lessons. I stumbled across Dance Spectrum in Depew in my internet searches and was pleasantly surprised to find that they offered 4-6 week, 45-minute workshops for toddlers and preschoolers. What a great low-commitment way to see if we liked the studio!
I have been blessed since childhood with amazing friends. Each of my closest friends have taught me so much about life and the importance of friendship. I couldn’t get by without their support, laughter, and unconditional acceptance of my impatience, bossiness, and lack of returning phone calls. (I am much better with texts!)
This past weekend when we were out, my son was being crazy and I was being frazzled, as per usual. Another parent near me said something to the effect of how lucky she was that her daughter was so well behaved and I immediately felt embarrassed. First, because my child was clearly so ill-behaved that a stranger needed to passive-aggressively say something to me about it. And second, for letting her make me feel like my son was anything but great. She doesn’t know my kid. I should have had his back instead of politely laughing and agreeing my kid was crazy. (I’ll take mom guilt for $100.)
I am so excited to announce the newest feature at Buffalo Moms, “Maker Moms” – a place where we can highlight talented mommas and their handmade businesses!
First up on this new segment is Harp & Heart Co., handmade lip balms made from 100% natural ingredients and Young Living Essential Oils. I’ve been lathering my lips with the Mango Citrus for a few weeks now, and I can’t get enough!
