Raisin' Ladies

Posted by

It's hard raising girls. We have 4 girls, no boys. A lot of our friends have only girls as well. I can tell you we are not quite there yet with equality and I know this is just the beginning but I have 4 girls who love sports and they are all lucky enough to be extremely good at whatever sport they do. This year I am blessed to have 3 of my girls on the varsity high school soccer team. It is so nice to see the twins playing on the field with their older sister. There is only one thing that could top it and that's if all 4 girls played together. My fault I spaced the first 2 out too far.

Last year at the end of the soccer season when the girls were winning Districts and Leagues the girls always got the first game and the boys had the night game. I always had to ask to leave work early but the boys parents never had to worry about that. This season I open the local paper to the sports section and there are photos of football (boys obviously) soccer, only the boys team and golf, again-boys. There is a small write up on girls soccer and other sports. On the adjacent page is a huge write up on nascar, didn't know that was local. I have 3 daughters on the same team, on the field at the same time and they are all pretty decent players but there's no coverage, no photos, no mention, oh that's right they're girls. If I had boys it would be different. 

Sadly I will have to explain to my girls that boys will always get paid more, they will get better scholarships, they will get prime playing times and they will have more photos and write ups in the paper. Nah, I'm not going to have that conversation.....I will let them have faith that they can make a change and hope that things will change.

College is for Learning Right?

Build your future. Build your life. Learn how to be an adult right?With my oldest in her second year of college [...]

Today is the day I dreamed of when I started this business. This is the one place I wanted to be, the one place I saw this brand, the one place everyone eventually goes when they find out they’re pregnant. Today is the day we launch on Babies R Us! This is truly an amazing [...]

One Thing I Learned

Well, I learned many many things in my #& years. (that’s right, I’m not tellin :) but this one thing I could never figure out is how my middle daughter (Is she really “middle” if I have 4 kids and 2 are twins?) could always tell the twins apart. Maggie is 2 and a half [...]

Snow Day!

It’s mid March... I would have preferred an epic snow storm in February but I will take what I can get. The twins enjoyed it and I know they had their Sparkling Snowman Long Sleeve tees underneath their snowsuits : ). I am fortunate enough to work for a company that allows you to work [...]

We, as a company, are on the verge of bigger things. Talks with major retailers, expansion of the line into something more than t-shirts…I just needed her to wait maybe one more year. On the other hand this is GREAT news! What better connection to have with someone than being a mother of twins and [...]

One Of My Best Days EVER!!!

Did you ever have that one celebrity you wanted to meet? That one celebrity that you would stand in line for hours just to say “your my favorite” if you had the chance? Most people never get that chance but fortunately for me the one person I wanted to meet also happens to own [...]

I'm Just a Mom.

This blog may seem more like I’m venting than anything else but there comes a time when everyone needs to vent now and again.I recently took my daughter, who has asthma, to the doctor because she wasn’t feeling well. The doctor said I don’t know if this is her asthma or if it’s a cold [...]

What is a Gift?

Some gifts are tangible, something you can touch and put a value to, while others are not and to me these are the true gifts. There are many times as a parent where I thought “oh I didn’t do that right” or “I should have handled that differently” and other times I wish I could [...]

I Can't Wait.....

I can remember saying, when my kids were little, “I can’t wait” on so many occasions....”I can’t wait until they are out of diapers”, “I can’t wait until they are out of strollers”, “I can’t wait until they start kindergarten”.....When you are in the moment it’s easy to think that things will be easier later [...]
