Welcome to the weekly Wednesday Be Clean Be Green With Kids Link Up to share and garner ideas about simple ways to make family life a little easier, eco-conscious and sustainable. The ideas we share don’t have to be rocket science, so let’s help out another mom (or parent!) discover just the right idea to find a conscious cadence in everyday life.
On the blog this week…
With expectations sky high for a perfect Pinterest-worthy birthday party, hosting a young child’s birthday can easily become an overly stressful experience. Check out this lovely birthday party for one of J’s classmates that we attended a few weeks back. This is something with which I can definitely get on board.
She’s an up-and-coming Instagram rockstar, and I couldn’t have been more excited to interview her. Ralphie, of Simply on Purpose, shares all sorts of brilliant yet simple ideas about how to be a more patient and peaceful parent. I’m addicted. Check out the interview with her and find out where to get your own fix of her great insights.
Becoming a mom changes everything and, in my experience, can bring with it a serious case of Mom Guilt. Mom Guilt is bittersweet, an indication that I have lots of opportunities, for which I’m grateful, and many commitments that weigh on my heart and mind. I shared more about this internal battle I fight with myself as my own worst critic. I suspect many moms might be able to relate.

There are no requirements about pinning or following or sharing in order to participate. Those kind of drive me crazy.

Looking forward to seeing what’s working for your family!
