The 2 Most Important Values I’m Teaching My Children

Personalized notebook - The Two Most Important Values I'm Teaching My Children & Personalized Products By Just So Posh

Of all the chaos in the world, and all the chaos in our own house with two young, growing, rambunctious kids… the drive to school in the morning is kind of a special time for me. It’s a few minutes without video games, TVs, loud toys, running, yelling, screaming (if we’re lucky), when my kids and I can really talk. We talk about the day ahead, upcoming plans… about everything from the lunch menu to what they want to be when they grow up.

But whatever we talk about, the last thing I always say to them before they hop out of the car and disappear into the crowd of kids is, “Be brave & kind.”

They’ll face some of the toughest challenges throughout the next several years… peer pressure, bullying.. not to mention math and science. And if I can arm them with a little bit of those two qualities, I feel they’ll make good decisions.

Just So Posh provided me with a complimentary product for this post. I also receive a small commission if you make a purchase through my affiliate link, at no additional cost to you. All opinions are 100% authentic and my own.


And I want them to remember our mantra even when they’re not with me. I want it to empower and inspire them. That’s why I got my daughter this beautiful, personalized notebook with those special words on the front.

She loves to draw pictures, write down her thoughts and send notes to her friends. This notebook is perfect for that. And with the pretty design, she loves it and wants to take it everywhere.

We got it from Just So Posh. It’s great quality and they make it so easy to customize to your style.

They have tons of options and give you the ability to choose every little detail through the designs, colors, and fonts.

And they have a ton more products too! Everything from notebooks and journals to backpacks, beach towels, and home decor. And you can personalize it all to your style.

Check out all that Just So Posh has to offer here.

And tell me what values you want to impart to your kids. Do you have a family mantra? I’d love to hear about it in the comment section below.

As a mom, there are many small and sometimes major moments that signal to you that your kids are getting older and they’re no longer babies. Some of these moments cause a sigh of relief… like when they’re potty trained, when they can feed themselves and when they finally stop sticking everything in their mouths. But some are a little more bittersweet… like when they’re embarrassed to have you kiss them when you drop them off at school, or when your daughter starts to rebuff the pretty, fluffy bows you’ve been sticking in her hair for years. That last one especially stings me lately. (more…)

Mother’s Day Gift Card Printable Bundle

Mother's Day printable gift card - Mother’s Day Gift Card Printable Bundle + $300 Target Giveaway

I have a confession to make. I love Mother’s Day. I mean, what other day of the year do you have kids and husband fawning over you and constantly telling you to relax… and sometimes that even happens. But that’s not the confession. The confession is that I am so self-centered, I think Mother’s Day is all about me. But it’s not. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for an amazing mother of my own. But… back to the self-centered part… I tend to leave my own mother’s gift to the last minute. :I

If you’re anything like me, rest assured that mother’s day gifts don’t have to cost a ton of money or take a ton of time to pick out, buy, or make. What matters is that the gift comes from the heart. It can be as simple as a book you know she’ll love, a cute coffee mug or a comfy pair of pajamas.

I also have the perfect gift card covered for you in this Mother’s Day Gift Card Bundle! (more…)
