Girls Back-to-School Must-Haves

Sponsored by the Disney Store. All opinions expressed within are entirely TMOs.

I’m still in denial that our oldest is turning six in a few days and that she will no longer be in Kindergarten. I think it’s due to the fact that I have very fond memories from when I was a child and in that grade level.

And if anyone knows if there’s a way I can just keep my baby girl (yes, still call her that) this little forever, please share. Because this past year was seriously full of many firsts. I know what you’re thinking. Wait, isn’t the infant stage the one with the most firsts? Well, let me tell you. Being 5 is up there too. Having a 5-year-old certainly rocked my world.

It was her first year in an elementary school, first time reading an entire easy reader book on her own, first note from The Tooth Fairy (which happens to be off on Mondays. More on this later) to her first time tying her own shoe laces. But watching her become more and more independent at this age has made me realize one thing. It doesn’t seem to get easier for me to let go. And I have a feeling I’ll be a mess still when she goes to middle school and high school and oh my word college. Ok, not going there right now. Instead, I’ll focus on the present and the fact that she’s officially a 1st grader. Please pass the box of tissue this way.And if you’ve also been too busy having fun this summer and haven’t had the chance or made time to go back-to-school shopping with your little nugget, no worries. We have an awesome one-stop-shop for you. The Disney Store! Yes, you read that correctly. The Disney Store has the cutest back-to-school finds all at affordable prices.

This is hands down such a life-saver for us busy moms that are looking for healthier delicious options without leaving the comfort of our homes and having to pack the kids up just to grab a quick bite to eat. #sponsored #mypanera #PaneraDelivers #panera #momsonthego #busymom
  • 🍭Oh Lexi, you’re so full of sweetness and sass. Wondering if it’s true what they say...The youngest will surely give you more gray hairs. 🤣🙈 .

And if you have a winter baby, I’ve got a cute birthday idea for you on our blog. Check out how we celebrated Lexi’s 2nd bday. Link in bio. ❄️🎂 📸 @lilyro_ 😍 #terrifictwos #winter #birthdaygirl
  • Mom life is definitely not easy but seeing my kids eyes light up when they learn something new or see something magical🌈, that right there makes it all worth it. 💕#makeeverydaymagical #magicofchildhood #momofgirls

Someone recently asked me how on Earth I go  to places like the zoo or Disneyland with these two alone. The truth is, it’s not easy. Yes, sometimes my husband or my mom come along but they’re not always able to. So what’s my secret? .
.
I pushed myself to do it once. I thought, if it’s a total fail oh well, at least I gave it a shot. And well, I’m here to report, I survived, they survived and we have tons of good memories (I don’t think they’ll remember the tantrums🤪) to look back at from it. *Tip: Buy a Zoo membership or theme park annual pass or Groupon. Go early in the am when there’s less crowds. Stay for a few hours and leave before it gets too crowded. And bring lots of snacks. 🤣You got this mama!! 💪☺️ #sandiegozoo #twinningtuesday #momofgirls #motheroverloadhair
  • Most of you know my oldest is severely allergic to eggs. For that reason, date nights with the Mr. tend to turn into brunch dates. Which is why we were so excited to get invited to the opening of @toasttemecula 😋

Loving all their delicious menu options from chilaquiles verdes & micheladas, adorable pancakes w/ berries & kiwi for the kiddos to healthier colorful options like their avocado toast w/ egg🥑 and vanilla ice ice charcoal matcha. 🍵 Oh and did I mention they even have gluten-free options and play 90s music? 📻 🙌🏼😍

That mom guilt is real yo! Some days are harder than others, right? But we got this mamas. 💪 Trying my best to carve out quality time with my girls and really being present. It’s my goal moving forward not just this new year but FOREVER. Joting down girl dates, hubby dates and family dates on my calendar and making them a top priority. And that includes putting the phone down. 😜

What are you focusing on this year or trying to change for the better? #momguilt #bepresent #dailyparenting 📸 @lilyro_ 😍💕😘

Throwing it back to a couple months ago when I went solo for the first time with these two little loves 🤪...This pouty face happened when a cast member volunteered to take the pic for me & Pluto graciously photo bombed it. 😂Oh Hi Pluto!👋
