What To Do With Your Race Medals?

How Your Medal Can Make A Difference

by: Sharon DeVellis

I believe there should be scores in soccer and that every kid shouldn’t get a medal for just showing up.

For the record, I’m cool with participation ribbons.

So it’s ironic that I’m left wondering what to do with the medals from all the races I take part in, medals I don't even want.

Why Social Media Makes Me Want To Churn Butter In The Woods

I'm Becoming More And More Low Tech As I get Older

by: Sharon DeVellis

I am becoming more and more low tech as I get older. In about two years you will find me churning butter in a cabin in the woods. Feel free to join me because, butter.

A few weeks ago, it was the annual Fall Fair in our community. The boys and I have been going for ten years and this small fair is anticipated with as much excitement as Christmas morning.

Parenting Pain: From Headaches To Stepping On Lego

How To Ease The Aches

Ways To Reduce Soreness From Being Active

I’m a pretty active person and I’m not saying it in a braggy way. It’s more of an I-need-to-be-active-or-I-will become-an-eating-potato-chips-while-on-the-couch World Champion.

By the way, that should totally be an event.


The Face, The Voice, The Blog!

Sharon is a Common Sense Parent which is somewhere in between being free-range and helicopter. She believes in being active as a family and eating well 85% of the time. The other 15% is for the days when she's PMSing and then all bets are off. So far her parenting style has worked wonders for her two boys who astound her on a daily basis but that's not to say she doesn't have time to totally screw it up. She can't teach you how to keep your house clean while balancing a job and motherhood but if you're a mom who's struggling to figure it out, you've found your tribe.
