Our little life is getting a whole lot more active with Leah on the move. Derek puts it into the perfect visual: You know in the movie “Step Brothers,” where Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly are sleepwalking, stumbling around, throwing shit everywhere? That’s Leah. All day every day. (In case you missed it or want a refresher, here is the clip.) And Mya’s the one following her around picking up her messes, saying over and over again “Leah, we don’t do this. You’re making a mess. Please stop this.” So that’s what we’re dealing with in a nutshell. Luckily, we were able to break out of the house and enjoy the weather a bit. Fresh air was a total game changer.

I even snuck away by myself (gasp!) to have a little “mommy time.” On Saturday, I went to my first pop-up shop and it was pretty amazing. It was hosted by my friend Betsy’s companies, SwimZip and Shedo Lane. In short, Betsy is the ultimate mom boss. I am in total awe of how she runs two companies with two kids. And she’s been on Shark Tank. So she’s basically my hero. But what makes Betsy and her companies so beautiful is her true passion and devotion to sun protective clothing. SwimZip “makes UV protection a zip” as all kids’ swimsuits feature a zipper for every child’s (and parent’s!) ease. Mya loves the pool, but she hates taking off a sticky, wet suit, so SwimZip basically helps avoid a major meltdown every trip to the pool… and keeps us sun protected! Double win.

And you’re going to love SwimZip too because they’re giving one lucky winner a $50 gift card. To enter, do 1 and 2 below:
