Wishing all of you a wonderful holiday full of friends, family, good food and some much deserved down time. We’re taking a small break from posting over the holiday, Jess will be back on Wednesday with an exciting post about 2018 content and some questions for all of you as we plan for the new year. In the meantime, sending all of you good vibes and lots of love for the holidays.

Where do kids learn about gender roles? Their parents’ relationship.

Major props to Catt Sadler for deciding to not stay at E! after finding out that she makes half of what a male coworker makes.

Thank you so much Kristin. Happy Holidays to you as well xx
Love these link round ups! Its similar to my current post!
Merry Christmas Jess, Craig, Nora, Fuji, and Hunter. We have had a rough patch with our real kids in the hospital and reading your blogs and seeing your fun vlogs with the snow and your adorable fur kids always made me smile when I wanted to cry. Enjoy your family and your puppies and have a wonderful and Blessed Christmas!!??
Oh I’m so sorry to hear that Lynn. I hope everything is ok now. Wishing you a Happy Holiday xx
I love how you attached an article about gender roles! My partner and I both share responsibilities, we make it a point to take turns cooking, cleaning, getting our daughter ready, literally everything is 50/50 and we both take turns doing everything.
Growing up I was definitely a tom boy (I grew up with all older boy cousins), so if I find an article of clothing that I like for my daughter in the “boys” section I won’t let that stop me from buying it for her. She likes playing with cars and trucks over baby dolls and that’s perfectly fine with me. We have never and will never tell her she can’t do something because she’s a girl.
That’s so cool Sam! I love that. You’re gonna raise a bad ass little lady. Happy Holidays xx
