The book is categorized with chapters, all pertaining to different aspects of motherhood. There is truly something for every type of mama at every different stage. Some chapters are about being a new mama; others are about having children all grown up.
But every chapter is filled with compassion for you as a mother. As I read the book, I feel like I am chatting with author, Kristine Carlson, over a coffee and getting hugs throughout! There is so much thought put into every chapter, and nothing is left un-discussed. I am savoring this book. I am so grateful to have been chosen for this campaign and I take this book wherever I go. The chapters are short enough to fit in between little moments in my day and give me an instant boost. And some suggestions that Carlson makes about taking better care of myself have already been put into place and are making a difference in my energy as well as my outlook.
She reminds us that it is important to carve out family time with meals together, reading books aloud together yay! Most of us probably know these already. But reading it in this context with loving thoughts of living a better, less stressful life, encourages us to make it possible! Here are some chapter titles to give you a better idea of what is covered: Do yourself a favour and pick up a copy for the summer.
And if you have a friend that has just become a mama, this book will be one of the best presents she could receive! I love quiet time with my tea after the kiddos are in bed and the house is quiet.
I am not a mom — but I do donate items at christmas times mostly childrens toys but this would be great to donate as well. And he said, I'm just putting an opportunity on the table. He said we'll keep the household normal, and we will keep the expectations high. If it happens, it will happen. If it doesn't, it will not. And we will not celebrate it each and every day. Well, it was very interesting.
When we came down from that meeting, first thing he asked me was like, mom, am I in trouble? And I'm like, no, Michael. You aren't in trouble. Coach Bowman just wanted to talk to us about, you know, some possibilities that could occur within your life - never really mentioned the word Olympics.
And during our conversation throughout the rest of the weekend where he was playing lacrosse, he was doing soccer, he was doing baseball and swimming all at one time, I said, Michael - I said, you know - I said, Coach Bowman told your father and myself that you are very talented in this sport. But you need to consider all the different sports you are playing. Are you willing to give any of those up? So again, when I mentioned about decision-making, I had Michael to be part of the decision-making process to be able to talk to him openly, to be able to share information with him, and for him to be able to make a list of pros and cons as to what could happen and what couldn't happen.
And he eventually gave up his lacrosse, his soccer and his baseball, and he focused all on the sport of swimming. Calvin Hill, we only have a couple minutes left. Do you think that it helped that you had your own life and your own success? I mean, I heard you say once that, you know, Grant didn't have the pressure of buying his mama a house.
You bought him a house. You bought his mama a house. You didn't - do you think it helped you to kind of set those boundaries because you'd had your own success and your own life? Well, I think possibly. You know, I never, you know - I mean, the fact that Grant was able to play basketball and to go to Duke and to play at a national level there and then go into the NBA was a complete surprise to me. You know, and part of it was I never wanted him to feel like he had to do it because his dad did it.
You know, when he made his choices, you know, they were things that he wanted to do. You know, I always tell the story that, you know, I was a big Carolina fan. And I wanted him to go to - you know, I mean, I liked - I loved Dean Smith because Dean was so important in the integration of the ACC and was a very progressive man - is a very progressive man.
And I liked that. And he chose to go to Duke. And, you know, it was his choice. Well, you know, I have.
I mean, I have. I mean, you know, it was his choice. And, you know, there were good times and there were tough times. But, you know, he always knew it was his choice. And, yeah, it worked out pretty well for him. But I think the key is, you know, just allow them to do what they want to do and to be supportive. But also to make them understand that once they make a commitment to a team or to go to a school, they must honor that commitment Debbie - Debbie, what about you?
You - as you mentioned, you were a highly regarded principal in your own right. In fact, we have one of your former students among us here who's waving at you. You can't see him. But what about that? I mean, on the one hand, the logistics of managing three kids and all those sports and your own career - we only have about a minute and a half left - but I'd like to, you know, ask - you have some thoughts about that, how you managed to do all that? It's all about team. I mean, we all worked together. I mean, on top of that, I even went back and get my master's during that time.
So I was kind of this crazy person that decided to do all those things. But, you know, you can do whatever you put your mind to. I know that's kind of an old cliche. But if you are focused and you work together and you share information and you love each other and you support each other, you can do anything you put your mind to. I thought, you know - no. I was successful in my schoolhouse.
And my children knew my love for my children that I had in my schoolhouse. I often said that my school was my fourth child I never had. So I took great pride in that. But I also took pride in each of my children's accomplishments. And I'm always there on the sideline making sure that they see me and that they know that I love them and I follow them and I'm supporting them percent - the same with my granddaughter But my granddaughter is a really great little cross-country runner at 7 years of age. So maybe she'll do a triathlon. But yes, they do swim at Michael Phelps Swim School.
Accuracy and availability may vary. The Pure Sweat Team hosts an amazing show! I found your Instagram page while going through my explore page and it literally sucked up 2 hours of my time and I didn't even mind. Honestly, I had given up on my dream of going Pro and playing D1. This season I made my first school team.
This is a perfect example of how pop and rock can work together, and no, they're not an ''emo'' outfit. I try very hard to adapt around their moods in order to decrease stress for them and also for me. I am 26 year old basketball coach. But there are values that are important. So, Debbie Phelps, let's go back to that first Olympics. And there have been so many people that come up to us and have spoken to us and asked for advice and told us stories. Don't Sweat the Small Stuff in Love:
I had tried out in middle school both 7th and 8th grade and didn't make it past first cuts and last year as a freshman I made it to final cuts and was devastated each time I didn't make it. I cried myself to sleep.
But this year I said to myself I'm never feeling this again, and trained every day possible, and made JV. Not what I wanted but better than I had before. I didn't play substantial minutes but I played a big role. As a freshman when I was cut my coach told me to improve my shot, and by the end of this season my coach told me I had the best shot in our entire school basketball program JV, or Varsity. You would have thought I had got my first kiss I lit up so much with joy.
But by the end of the season I had begin to sit more because my hustle had disappeared. After the season I said I wouldn't play for our school again because our coaching system was so unfair because it was "politics". This podcast and Instagram profile made me realize I wasted a blessing and sports are based on hustle. I keep whining because over the last few weeks my shot has been god awful and I'm playing like trash. I am pledging now to put up a minimum of 2, shots a week and play more than I ever have.
You have truly inspired me to be a better player than I have ever been before. And I truly appreciate it.
