Well, it’s official.

Today is my fortieth birthday. Yup, it’s been four decades of life for this gal. I’ve delighted some folks, pissed off others, and picked up some wisdom along the way.

If I’ve learned anything in my 40 years, it’s that happiness is a choice, good hair products are more than just a passing phase, and taking care of myself is a must. Not to mention, it IS possible to get better with age.

And there’s a few more nuggets of wisdom that I’ve learned along the road. Perhaps some of you old folks can relate to these wise words?

Mom-Of-Three Proudly Poses In Bikini: “They Aren’t Scars, They’re Stripes”

bikini-mom-of-three

Redefining beauty!

Fellow blogger and mom-of-three, Rachel Hollis, posted a photo of her bikini body last week, encouraging all moms to take pride in our post-baby bodies.

“I have stretch marks and I wear a bikini,” Hollis, 32, wrote on Facebook. “I have a belly that’s permanently flabby from carrying three giant babies and I wear a bikini. My belly button is saggy… (which is something I didn’t even know was possible before!!) and I wear a bikini. I wear a bikini because I’m proud of this body and every mark on it.”

Viral Video: Mom Parody Pokes Fun At ‘Perfect’ Social Media Photos

View Slideshow »»

I just had to post this latest mom parody.

Why, you ask?

Sure, it’s good, clean fun. But mostly because they’ve used Jon Bon Jovi‘s Livin’ on a Prayer!

As the hugest JBJ fan of all time, I love how What’s Up Moms has taken the ’80s mega-hit and used it to poke fun at a common-day ‘problem.’

These funny moms have created Livin’ for the Share, to outline how difficult it can be to get the ‘perfect’ family photo to post on social media.

In the parody, one of the moms is posing for a pic while holding her cutie — with spinach between her teeth!

Lordy, Lordy, it looks like I’m turning 40!

On March 27, 2015, I will turn the big 4-0! But it’s not just me. My birthday twin, pop superstar Fergie, will leave her thirties behind on Friday, and everyone’s favorite reality star mom Kate Gosselin will celebrate forty candles the following day.

The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus Advocates For Breastfeeding Moms

norman-reedus-breastfeeding-photo

Swoon! Look who just won Instagram, ladies!

The latest breastfeeding advocate out of Hollywood is none other than The Walking Dead hunk Norman Reedus.

Although Daryl Dixon had us at his sexy crossbow skills, the notorious zombie survivor has made even more fans after posting a pro-nursing photo via Instagram Sunday.

“Free it! Love these ladies! Tonight’s show is gonna be awesome!!!,” Reedus captions the image holding a fake book alongside two proud breastfeeding mamas.

Showing his support for moms to nurse in public – and to share breastfeeding pics on social media – the actor, 46, gives the peace sign to encourage all the lactating moms out there.

According to Momma Is A Hippie’s Facebook page, Reedus is fully supportive of nursing mamas.

“We had taken a pic and he was holding a fake boob for it,” she wrote. “He made a comment about boobs and so many babies. Somehow breastfeeding was mentioned and we offered to take a nursing pic with him. He was excited and said it was the best pic he’s ever taken.”

Reedus is no stranger to breastfeeding — he is dad to son Mingus, 15, with ex-girlfriend, supermodel Helena Christensen.

I don’t know about you ladies, but I’m an even bigger fan of him now!

Free it! Love these ladies! Tonight’s show is gonna be awesome!!!

Blogger Tells Stay At Home Moms: You Don’t Have A Real Job

Are you a stay at home mom?

If so, you might be just delighted with a new blog post from Liz Pardue-Schultz, a former SAHM who says that staying at home with your children is not a real job.

Yup, Liz proudly states the following: “Being a stay-at-home mother to your own kids is not a “job,” no matter how difficult it is or how hard we work. Period. Getting to do nothing but raise a person you opted to bring into the world is a privilege, and calling it anything else is ignorant and condescending.”
