Photo: We can either let toy and game companies advertise, market, and influence what we buy for our girls, or we make our own rules. My rules are simple: explore what’s interesting, fun, challenging; Link what you do with the real world when you can; allow girls to feel the highs in building, tinkering, and engineering. #momsandaughters #build #mommymakerlab #love #children #girlsandscience #womenandscience #valueofmotherhood #stem

Photo: “Be who you are and say how you feel. Because those who mind don’t matter. And those who matter don’t mind.” – Dr. Seuss. A good quote for these little munchkins as they grow. Bright and beautiful day at this masterful flower garden that even the tenders at Kew would envy. #flowers #love #kids #wisdom #philosophy #readphilosophy #mindset

Photo: A lemon tart made with Meyer lemons from the backyard here in California. Smelling, touching and seeing citrus trees is enchanting – one of favorite aspects of California living. My daughter and her grandpa made the crust from scratch – we used about 6 Meyer lemons – zest and juice. It was a gorgeous presentation at the end and another cooking experience for this 5 year old. I want to continue to teach her about the origins of whole, real food, and the satisfaction and art of cooking from scratch. My book, The 3-Day Reset, is available on Amazon.com. #the3DayReset #cooking #wholefood #healingfood #food #love #life #california #spring

Photo: Happy belated #InternationalWomensDay  The title "mother" bears an enormity that goes, foolishly, undervalued in American society today. Mothers raise and grow our future. The better we can raise our children, the more hope we have for tomorrow. Raising is not easy – it take effort. It takes sacrifice. It takes dedication. It takes strength. Above these responsiblities, society expects women to be able to put in all the time it takes to compete in the workplace and the world. Winning at both is not doable for most without resources and a supportive philosophy from American society – we need laws that allow women greater work flexibility, more time off to breastfeed after birth, more childcare support, more emphasis and support for the family unit (immediate and extended family), and mentorship opportunities. In order for women to feel just as limitless as men and feel as though she can reach her full human potential, changes need to be made. The first step is to acknowledge it all. This Day is also fitting for me to push my advocacy for breastfeeding forward. Women need more support at hospitals and during pregnancy to enable breastfeeding – its healthier for babies from an immune standpoint and its healthier for moms (can help avoid certain cancers). It boosts the IQ's of our future. We need to stop frowning upon it, and instead celebrate it with all our strength, both men and women alike. In this picture my baby is 10 months. I am still breastfeeding her now at 14 months and very proud to do it. I realize some women cannot breastfeed, though I venture to say, there isn’t enough education for it in our country versus others and many women can’t – not for biological reasons – but due to a lack of education, awareness, laws, and support. As one breastfeeding counselor told me last year, “there is always milk”. #breastfeeding #internationalwomensday #metoo #women #womenareamazing #babies #birth #valueofmotherhood #future #thefutureisfemale
