Making It Through the Breastfeeding Blues

I chose to breastfeed my daughter – and I’m so glad I did. We had a truly amazing experience, one that I would not trade for anything. Now… before you start hating on me, thinking that I’m gloating, making assumptions about my journey, know that it was not easy. Not at all. I was not […]

Words Matter

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me. This old nursery rhyme got it wrong. Words are powerful, and words can build you up or tear you down. In a world where we are constantly seeing headlines of bullying, cyber-bulling, social media, and texting, we have to start equipping our children at […]

Disability or Possibility?

As an educator, the hardest thing to do is tell parents that their child is struggling.  Whether the struggle manifests itself through behavior or math, reading, and writing deficits – you want nothing more than to take the struggle away. When you hear the term learning disability, what comes to your mind? Did you know […]

Lori Parish Memphis Moms Blog introduction

Welcome! Lori Parish

Hi! As I sit here after bathing, reading to, and tucking in 4 little kiddos, folding mass amounts of laundry, packing lunches, checking homework, putting away previously mentioned laundry and doing ALL THE THINGS,  I’m finding it hard to write about myself. Which is actually quite humorous because I’m quite the talker. So here goes… […]

Meet Our Owner and Founder!

If I’m being completely frank, I think my journey through life and motherhood could probably be summed up as a series of “I’ll never… ” statements, followed by me inevitably putting my foot in my mouth. Parenthood really has a way of making us into total liars, doesn’t it? I’ll never have kids… And then wouldn’t you know it? […]

The Case for Summer Camp

Part of a mom is learning to exist in the moment while simultaneously planning ahead…and so today, though it is chilly, dreary, and decidedly winter, I want you to think ahead to summer. Have you considered whether your kiddo will be going to summer camp? If you haven’t, or if you’re on the fence, I’m […]

Working Mom Sanity Savers

Let me start off by saying that this is not going to be a post about how working moms work harder than stay-at-moms or a post about my feelings of having to do it all. That’s just not beneficial, and this isn’t going to be a vent or an essay about how one way of mothering […]
