My Complete Profile

Email Me

Kayla, my oldest. She is 4 1/2 and is a sweet, loving and silly little girl. She took us 2 ½ years and 3 IVF’s to conceive. Kayla is allergic to dairy. We manage her allergy and work to balance her safety with giving her a normal childhood. Kayla loves to read books and play games - she amazes me every day.

Alysa, my youngest. She is 3 years old and is a silly little spitfire. She’s our monkey and loves to climb on everything. She was a “natural” baby, but it was only b/c of my wonderful doctors that we were able to stop an impending miscarriage. Alysa suffers from Acid Reflux Disease and sleep apnea. She may be little, but she has a big personality. She adores her big sister and is so much fun to be around. She keeps me laughing every day.

I am a Mom for Modesty

It has been discussed lately in recent blogs how young girls dress. This too has always been a concern for both me and my husband. It was b4 we had children and even more now that we have two girls.

I wonder - how will our children learn to dress properly if their Mom’s don’t? On numerous occasions, I have seen Moms with their kids wearing revealing clothes and pants with comments written on the back side. What kind of message is this sending to their own kids, let alone mine?

I too want my girls to dress modestly. I want them to know they can look pretty and cute and just plain good dressed appropriately. They will gain more respect by dressing with their belly covered and no lewd comments on their shirts and/or pants.

Yes, a toddler can look adorable with their belly showing – let’s face it they have such cute bodies. But I won’t let them out of the house that way. Over the summer, I one day put an outfit on my odd and it was then that I realized, the shirt was too short and her belly showed. Of course, she looked adorable. But DH and I agreed that as cute as the outfit was, she would only wear it around the house. And honestly, she’s worn it maybe once since then. They do not wear sexy clothing or bikinis.

As a kid, I don’t remember wanting to ear anything that revealing. Both my sister and I gravitated towards modest clothing. I can’t say whether this was “the luck of the draw” or if it was solely due to our parent’s influence. I just hope that I don’t have to police my daughters as they leave the house for any contraband clothing they may have snuck in.

So I too, will take the Moms for Modesty Pledge and will do my part to keep my daughters well dressed. I will help them to dress with confidence and know they are loved, appreciated and respected for dressing as they do.

Yay! Now when you're out maybe we can go to the outlet stores and stock up on some modest clothing for the kids (and us!).
