Friday Faves & Finds (3.23.18)


week in review

It was a good week for my family as we learned our daughter got assigned to our first choice of public kindergartens in San Francisco! If you’re not familiar with the process, it’s overwhelming, so we’re grateful and relieved to have it behind us. I’m hoping you’ve heard good news, too, if you’re in a similar boat for school admissions.

Here’s some good stuff from around the web that I used to distract myself.


Here’s a good list for your March for Our Lives protest signs.

Ramshackle Glam shows off her master bedroom closet transformation that’ll have you grabbing for your sledgehammer.

After the kids go to bed, we’ve been tuning into The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Love. What shows are you binging?

I flew solo with my kids for a mid-week visit with my family in southern California. These travel car seat vests make Ubering to and from the airport so, so much easier!

In case you missed it. . . 

We recapped last week’s Facebook LIVE that’s chock full of helpful advice for helping your babies sleep at night.

Andrea admitted to her internal struggle over buying a minivan.

I talked about a big realization I had while potty training my kids.

Meredith shared what it’s like to “feel all the feels” and mother as a highly emotive person.

Lorrie explained why she’s taking her preschoolers to tomorrow’s  March for Our Lives rally in San Jose and how she’s talking to them about gun safety. 

And over at San Francisco Moms Blog. . . 

Starting the conversation to tackle the mental load of motherhood; declaring that moms need to take sick days; unveiling our amazing Burke Williams prize for our Mommy Madness Tournament; calming your concerns about getting your baby to sleep when you travel; reminding us how to sleep train ourselves; motivating us to book a trip up to Northstar in Tahoe with the kids.
