Body Talk And Self-Discipline

If you follow me on Instagram, you'd know that I've spent the past five days detoxing my mind, body and soul. Which is why I'm sharing this excerpt from Everyday Chic on self-discipline and body image. Anyone can have self-discipline, you just need to be in the right mindset.

Inner Work For Supermommas

As parents, we are always learning and adapting as our kids get older, change, and develop different needs. As women, professionals, wives, mothers, and friends, our needs are always changing too. Below are a few of the big issues that I find myself constantly navigating, some of which you might be navigating too. They are ongoing, and I’m doing my very best, but some days, some weeks— maybe even some years— are better than others.

Inside My Kids' Playroom

In our previous house, we didn’t have a playroom. Our living room was also the playroom. I’m sure a lot of you can relate! In fact, the train tracks and train that Grandpa Ray gave Brooks were pretty much permanently on the coffee table. Today, we're taking you inside the most fun room in the house: the playroom.

How To Truly Age Gracefully

Aging is a biological reality that all of us share as long as we have the privilege to continue on this earth. And there are numerous benefits to aging. But in our culture, especially for women, aging is big fat negative. It’s associated with all kinds of bad things that we are supposed to “fight.” The language we use when we talk about aging is like we are in a war against nature and time: “Turn- back the clock.” “Try this new anti- aging miracle cream. “Fight wrinkles and sun spots.” And I’d be lying to you if I said that I was completely kumbaya about aging— that I love every dark spot and undereye circle and fine line so much that I want to sing a song about it. Hell, no. It’s especially hard when you’ve made a career in entertainment.

Our Parenting Principles

Parenting is, hands down, the toughest job in the world. Both Scott and I know that being an engaged parent is no small task and that there is no one right way to do it. But after three kids (and making many mistakes and learning along the way), we have discovered a few things that work for our family, most of the time. These are by no means the last word on parenting; the fact is, parenting is such an individualized thing that what works for one family will not necessarily work for another. Even so, I wanted to share a few ideas with you in hopes that what helped us might help your family too.

The Family Calendar = Security + Sanity!

I live and breathe by our family calendar. Without it, I am nothing. I would never remember Brooks’s soccer practice, Scarlett’s playdates, my meetings, or Scott’s travel. I would go supermomma batsh*t crazy without it. It’s not that I want to be rigid. It’s the opposite actually. With the schedule written out and accessible to Scott and myself and our child- care providers, we can relax because it provides clarity and order.

Tips For Photographing Your Family

Documenting the everyday and special occasions is so much easier in the modern age. We’ve got high-quality camera phones and even video cameras wherever we go. With ease, we can record and play back our lives. However, I do still love the tradition of setting up more formal photos for special occasions, such as the holidays, summer vacation, big family gatherings, and the annual family photo or during a pregnancy and after the birth of a new baby. The photos can be candid or more formal, but the point is, they are precisely captured. It’s so touching to look back on these years and these events and have a collection of images that tell our family story.
