Manners Make a Mama Proud {and Successful}

No comments:

"It's nice to meet you. My name is Lexi."

That's the way my daughter greeted ladies I was meeting with several years ago {and still does today}. Both were impressed with her manners, and commended me on my mommy-ness. I'm going to bet they also gave me credibility points, and those meetings will eventually lead to new business {they did!}. I had to take her with me to both meetings because she was out of school on "track break" (its a year-round school thing) and just leaving her in the car with the windows cracked open wasn't the best idea. I'm also always jazzed to model successful grown up woman and mom for her!

I started working with Lexi on her manners almost from her first moments. Please. Thank you. You're welcome. May I please ... Could you please ... etc. Repetition really is the mother of skill - pun intended!

How to Survive Summer, Single Mom!

Ladies, it's really hot out there! My daughter has been out of school for barely a week, and you might be hearing the same chanting I'm hearing: "I'm bored." "Why can't you spend more time with me?" "It's too hot outside ..."

It's a difficult balance for single moms to keep their kids cool and happy during the long, hot weeks of summer when, I don't know, everything else that happens the other nine months of the year needs to get done.

What's a mother to do?

Is it Possible to Get Along with Your Ex?

Here are some exes you might've heard about ... that get along ...

If Brooke Mueller and Denise Richards can get along with this guy, anything is possible.

I should know. I've had two contentious, expensive (and, as it turns out, unnecessary) court battles with my ex. If you would have said, even a year ago, "someday you'll have calm, friendly conversations with your ex that have a positive results and end cordially" ... well, I would've told you to put down the crack pipe.

But, with some hard work and a few key action steps, I can now see my ex's name pop up on my caller ID and not have a pit in my stomach or homicidal thoughts. I can even initiate informational texts, to keep him in the loop, because not only is it the right thing to do, it's the nice thing to do.
