Instagram Roundup

Looking back on this week's special memories captured on Instagram...

Trying on outfits for our 80's prom tomorrow night. #shirtlessmark@markhowerton @chadmarkley

Fun night celebrating this girl. (Will celebrate her real birthday next week seeing Hamilton in New York City!)


This is my hair in it's natural state. Tonight our PTA has an 80's prom so I washed it and let it airdry into it's full frizzy glory. My hair is always a flatiron away from looking like a bad 80s perm. There have been about 10 neighbor kids in and out of the house today, and Karis is quick to explain my hair to each one that arrives, because I guess it's just that embarrassing for her. 😂

My friend @tshoxenreider's fun and inspiring book about her family's adventures traveling the globe with three kids is only $3.99 on Kindle right now. Go snap it up! Such a great thought-provoking read. #athomeintheworld

80's Prom!

My friend on the right is wearing my actual prom dress from high school. (It . . . uh . . . it was a little snug on me.)

More silliness from last night's 80s prom. @gergerdee_z @cleezy@shesgonnalive @markhowerton@chadmarkley

Last week I kicked off a video series with the fabulous Leslie Dixon - a sex educator with a passion for helping parents empower their kids to make good choices when it comes to puberty, peers, and sex. We are going to be chatting again today live on Facebook at 3 PM PT, and specifically talking on the issue of how to start the sex talk with younger kids. Come join us! We will also try to answer your questions.

We made it!

I brought her to New York for her birthday but I want her to stop playing her DS so we can explore the city, so I'm an asshole. #assholeparent

India's rocking her Schuyler sisters shirt in anticipation of tonight. Work!

Girl power.

Subway vibes.

At some point, I'm going to write a post about how to eat well in New York with picky kids. Chelsea market is one great solution. I'm eating Israeli food while the girls eat plain bagels. 👍

Walking the High Line

No understudy! Ben Platt fangirls in the house!! @dearevanhansen

India found her happy place

What I want you to know: Shit happens, we'll be okay

What I Want You to Know is a series of reader submissions. It is an attempt to allow people to tell their personal stories, in the hopes of bringing greater compassion to the unique issues each of us face. If you would like to submit a story to this series, click here. Today’s guest post was submitted by "E".

"I'm laying in my bed trying to figure out how the H I got here.

This week has been full of mediocre-ly bad news: check engine light on, need a root canal, gained even more weight, water heater pump is out and the garage flooded.

None of these things is overwhelming by its self or impossible to deal with, but all together and WHAM, it feels like too much to handle. And honestly, the one that gets me the most is the weight gain. I'm feeling pretty peeved at my body. I've always known I had angry lady parts, but in the last year I have felt the wrath.

As a 31 yo, single dame, I really love talking about hormonal issues, but seriously they are driving me nuts.

Oh sorry 'bout that, did my hair just fall out on you? That's how it effing started, a bald spot that got bigger. Is it alopecia or an thyroid? No, it's testosterone taking over my body.

I noticed the weight gain and I tried to fight it, I thought I had gotten my weight in control and I was going to win this battle. Then the hormone problems coupled with mass moves to the Arctic then back to the Midwest and now I have even more problems.

Yesterday, my doctor said (after I found out I'd gained another 5 pounds this month) that my body is currently turning everything I eat into sugar and that I have high liver levels. Coupled with high testosterone and I'm the ideal date.

Excuse me while I take one medication to make sure my hair doesn't fall out again, one to bring down my insulin levels and fingers crossed for the liver.

Here's what I want you to know: sometimes shit happens and we gain weight. Maybe sometimes we could do more about it, but other times were just tryin' make it through the day.

As I hide behind bushes and try not to make it into any family portraits while humming Hillsong and reminding myself that I can be like Kelly Clarkson and hold me head high, I'm struggling over here.

And just in case you are too, I thought I'd let you know. Shit happens, we'll be okay."
