Friday Free-For-All

Goodbye, August! I can’t believe summer is almost gone. Of course, our summer flew by in a bit of a new-parent haze, but still. Slow down, time!

Is it just me, or is everyone and their mother selling Beachbody plans? Don’t get me wrong, I understand woman wanting to find a side hustle to help provide for their families, but it just seems like you can’t swing a dead cat without hitting a “coach” who wants to sign you up for her “team.” I’ve been trying to connect with people on my new blog IG handle, and it seems like every single person who has followed me so far is trying to get me to sign up for their next challenge group. I’m sorry, but last time I checked, selling superfood shakes and pushing someone else’s workout plan doesn’t make you a coach. Maybe I just don’t really understand how it works, but it feels icky to me. Unless you have some kind of legit certification, you are no more qualified than I am to be telling another person how to work out.

I have determined that I will only shop in the boys section for Vera from now on. The clothes are just so much better. Honestly. There are a lot more of what I would consider to be gender neutral options in the boys section. As far as I’m concerned, dinosaurs, robots, and woodland creatures are neither masculine nor feminine. Yeah, you can find that stuff in the girls section, but the animals have eyelashes and pink bows. I got these awesome pants for Vera in the boys section at Old Navy, and I can’t wait to put them on her.

Do you stick to the “appropriate” gender section when shopping for your kid(s)?
