Self care is a catch phrase these days -- and some suggest that it means bubble baths and pedicures.
We aren't going to tell you NOT to do those things, but we want to make sure you dig deeper and get the kind of self care that will actually CHANGE YOUR LIFE!!!

Emmalou Penrod of Healing Your Families talks about relationships with the grandparents of our children
Momivate teaches that Moms R.A.I.S.E. U.P. Society -- with each of the letters in this acronym identifying a role of motherhood that isn't just chauffeuring or making sure the kids don't drown! The "R" is for RELATIONSHIPS -- and there are so many kinds.
In this Momversation, Emmalou Penrod of Healing Your Families talks about relationships with the grandparents of our children -- so, our own parents and our in-laws. These can be so advantageous as we realize that we are not on the mothering journey alone. These people who love our children almost as intensely as we do can be so beneficial in the lives of our children when we cultivate positive relationships based on boundaries, trust, and gratitude. And our children can be the jewels in the crowns of that older generation during their golden years -- and can help them figure out computers! Ha ha.
Momivate is so thankful to Emmalou Penrod for freely sharing her wisdom as she's gathered so much in her years of motherhood and grandmotherhood!
