Currently we are in the midst of a very tight budgeting season. 2018 was not an easy one and led to a challenging 2019. We now have to watch every single dollar we spend. We are so incredibly blessed,...
My sweet husband and I just welcomed our third bundle of joy, giving us three under five -- two in diapers.  What were we thinking?? Also, who in their right mind has a third kid in August in Phoenix?! (...but that's another...
I love the movement that is rising up and celebrating body positivity. The premise behind this is loving your body at any size and celebrating it. This movement encourages people to stop hating their bodies and instead appreciate what...
Did you just get that Mom's Night Out Evite asking you out for drinks?  Does saying "yes" to a random invite make your stomach turn? Are you unsure what to expect?  Is it even worth your time? I believe...
Kate, our co-owner, sat down with Billy Harfosh and spoke with him about Scottsdale Moms Blog and why we are so passionate about helping moms new to our community.  They touch on the importance of encouraging all moms in the...
My husband is probably one of the most amazing humans in the world. He’s such a good man and I literally want everyone to know him and his level of awesomeness. Although TBH, he would HATE that because he’s...
Kid in the Corner is a local non-profit dedicated to "helping each Kid in the Corner feel connected to and supported by the community." I heard Kid in the Corner founder, Francine Sumner, speak a few years back and...
It’s got to be the most used parenting cliché we hear: The days are long but the years are short. Usually this adage is spoken by other parents, and most people I know – in any stage of parenthood – agree with...
Let's talk about the new mom on the block. We have all experienced being new. Even if you have lived in the same zip code your entire life, you have probably attended a new school, church, book club, mom’s...
Let me begin by saying that I am an introvert. Any other introverts out there? You know, the one who mobile orders coffee so you can sneak up to the bar, grab your coffee, and walk out with hardly anyone...
  It was a very busy day and when dinner time rolled around I was pretty much over the whole thing.  I surveyed what I had in my fridge, freezer and pantry and felt very uninspired.  What I ended up serving for...
Hey soccer moms, we see you running from one activity to another trying to keep track of all the uniforms and gear, the crazy never-ending schedule all while trying to support your super star player! It is a ton...
My husband and I recently had dinner with friends who let it slip that they are expecting. A million things flew through my mind that I wanted to tell her, but I contained myself. As we discussed details and...
If you are anything like me, the thought of moving makes you want to break out in hives. The packing, the unpacking, the living among boxes, not remembering which box you put the toilet paper in… Switching locations, near...
I feel like one doesn't have to search long or far through the internet or among close friends for a story where someone was shamed for a parenting or lifestyle choice. I have a fairly sound and respecting group of...
May, the month we celebrate moms and motherhood, presents the perfect time to talk about…suffering. Yes, suffering. More specifically, how we shouldn’t waste the suffering that so frequently goes hand in hand with motherhood. And we can all agree...
I'm trying here, Costco. Really, I am. I want so much to hate you, and on paper, that should be easy.  I mean, after all: I thought Target was bad, but YOU. You are the $8.79 (if we're lucky) impulse-buy Green...
Thank You Thursday {April Edition} Thank You Thursday is a sometimes monthly Scottsdale Moms Blog series. The team at SMB is so LUCKY to receive products, try new local venues, and hear about new things to do all the time....
Our biggest event of the year, Bloom {an event especially for new and expecting moms} is this week! We would really love for you to join us on Sunday.  We are excited to present a filled event with over 30...
I’ve been remembering my days being pregnant, feeling sick, tired, nauseous. I was barely able to move, let alone feed, clothe and bathe my babes without enormous effort. We watched way more TV than I liked and we ate...
Dear Uninvolved Parents, Shortly after I got married, you specifically asked me to wait five years to have children. Well, apparently God had other plans, and we ended up having our first baby after only two years of marriage. You were such great...
Does your child suffer from anxiety? The answer is likely "yes," because we all have anxiety from time to time. I have generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) and my daughter has anxiety as well.  As she gets older, I want...
Before kids, your life was totally about you. Where you wanted to work, what you wanted to eat, how much sleep you needed (or didn't need!) - it was all up to you. After kids, well, let's just say,...
You’ve heard the saying, “What comes up must come down.” That pretty much summed up our situation. Everything WAS wonderful. Smooth sailing. Cloud 9. Picture perfect. Then the ball dropped. The company my husband worked for got a new CEO...
The Metro Phoenix Area is no stranger to "mom events." In fact our very own Scottsdale Mom's Blog has its Bloom event coming up soon! But I wanted to spend a minute to highlight an event that is in...
When we moved to Arizona eight years ago, I was terrified of making new friends. I had lived in Texas practically my entire life, so starting over in a town full of strangers was intimidating. I was very lucky...
Hi fellow mama. I want you to know that you are amazing. You put your heart and soul into parenting your kid(s) and although you often go unnoticed, I see you. I see how you stressed over choosing the...
My oldest is turning four this month. FOUR. I know in the grand scheme of life that is still quite young, but I can’t help but be cliché here and wonder…..where did the time go? I keep thinking about...
Many years ago, after my first child was born and I became fascinated with the whole birthing process, I became a certified childbirth educator. I loved helping couples overcome their anxiety about birth and making their journey to parenthood...
Are you enthralled with Marie Kondo's seemingly effortless and joyful take on tidying? I love watching "Tidying Up with Marie Kondo" because it reminds me of how great it feels to declutter and provides organization inspiration. I am one...
