Letting go of taking Gold at the Mommy Olympics

By: Meghan Simington, Connect with her on Facebook and follow her on Twitter.
Sometimes you just have to take off the ‘Coach Mom’ jacket and let your little one loose a race or two.  As new moms we dive into parenting as if we are trying out for the next Olympics with our infant. We ‘train’ and ‘practice’ and hope that we can take home each and every gold! Then we suddenly meet the uber-mom that is leading the pack and wonder how can we catch up?

I am a busy mom… or at least people keep telling me I am. Women around me often say “how do you do it all?”  (to which I usually can’t respond cause I am laughing so hard!). I get a little confused by this.

“Stumped by some of the trends this season? Need pro styling tips on
how to wear fall's hottest looks? You asked and I answered – and as I
always do, it’s served straight up.”
I want to wear leopard prints, but how?
“I’m a big fan of leopard, always have been. Trick here is to tame
the meow-mix by wearing only one piece of leopard print at a time.
Pair leopard pumps with your LBD. Or a cheetah-print scarf over that
camel coat. Head-to-toe leopard works on Edith Prickley. On you?
Not so much. ”
