Get Your Kind On!

Get Your Kind On!

So. If you know either one of us at ALL, you know that we pretty much live in our Mama Said Tees. And we LOVE when we spot one of our friends or a total stranger in them. Usually I (CS) will make a comment you could expect to hear like... "Hey girl... LOVE that tee. Cutest one I've ever seen!" And it is always received with something like "Oh my gah I live in your tees! They are THE COMFIEST EVER!" And I am all like "OMG I know right!? Cozy. Comfy. AND they spread kindness!" You get the point. Anyhow, we thought it would be fun if every now and again we did a flat lay to showcase our tee with things pretty much every girl can find something close to in her own closet, and then those same items ON one of our bodies, to show you what we're up to & how easy it is to wear our tees in a zillion ways.
So TODAY I give you the most dressed up I get in a work week, seeing as how I work from home! Here we have...
Our Love One Another tee, in oatmeal
A really adorable necklace I got at a charity event for Fields of Dreams
My favorite clutch from Madewell
My fave jeans (sorry I really don't know where they're from...)
I wore this very easy, simple, and in my opinion darling ensemble to counseling tonight, and I am proud to report that Danny, my 10 year old, is officially done with regular counseling as of this evening! If you don't know anything about our story and why we go to counseling, you can learn more here :) Anyhow, Danny took this photo of me & was very proud of his efforts! And I am pleased to show you how easy it is to make our tees look cute with (believe me) very little effort! We would LOVE to see how you style your MST tees, too! So never hesitate to help us with our KiNDstock :)
hello@mamasaidtees.com
So ummm yea. That's all I got for now. Until next time... Love One Another!

He is a bit different...

He is a bit different...

Sometimes it isn't easy being a mom who talks about kindness, designs with kind in mind & preaches about EVERYBODY being NORMAL. I can't raise my voice without someone calling me on the carpet or telling me to T.H.I.N.K! Or if I get mad at my husband over something silly, I get that head tilt, eyes up, "shame on you that was uncalled for and UN KIND!" look. BUT. Being a mom who is actively and passionately and constantly talking about kindness also has it's benefits.

I truly don't just talk about being kind, but I really TRY to BE KIND. I am only human of course, but there pretty much isn't anything that happens that I can't find a bright side to. There isn't any glass in our lives that isn't refillable. I grant myself permission to have crazy I'm a mom of 5 and my husband uses a new towel EVERY DAY day, but I never stop talking to my kids about love, kindness, and acceptance.

I want to tell you all why I think it is SO important and NOT a waste of time. Last night my oldest played in the Semi Finals for his CYO school basketball team. (GO CARDINALS!). Sigh. We did not win the game. BUT we learned. We played our hearts out. And every single parent was extremely proud of our boys, their hearts & valiant effort. We could have had that game. We didn't. But we gave it our all!

That being said, a player on the other team (I might add that this team was exceptionally talented & well coached) has one half arm. It is certainly something that everyone on our team probably noticed the first time we played them, but we didn't talk about it. I am certain that every one of us was thinking the same thing, though. That kid is GOOD. One and a half arms or ten arms. That kid can PLAY. Just as well as his teammates. He doesn't let what makes him different hold him back. And I think that he is plain AWESOME.

Anyhow, when we got home way past bedtime, I was tucking Ryan, my 5 year old, in by myself because daddy had to run out with our 2nd oldest to get materials for his Science Expo. I only mention this because I WISH he had been there. He usually is. I will never forget this conversation and I walked out of his room soon after crying happy tears.

So I finished tickling his back, singing "My Wish", tucked him in, kissed his forehead and turned to leave. He called me back and quietly said to me, "Mom. Did you see that boy on the blue team that God didn't give him both of his arms?" I took a deep breath and said, "Yes Ryan I sure did. He was a REALLY good player wasn't he?" Ryan replied, "Yea he was really good. I can't believe how good he was since he doesn't have both of his arms." I said "I can't believe it either! But it just goes to show you that God makes everybody the way he makes them for a reason! And maybe God made that boy special so he could show others that being different doesn't mean you can't do what everybody else can do!" To which Ryan replied, "Mommy. He is a bit different. But different is normal. And God loves us all the same."

You can imagine my pride and surprise. We talked about how curiosity is perfectly fine, and then I got out my phone and showed him pictures of Mary Cate Lynch. We talked about what makes her different and what to do if and when we see someone like her or someone like the boy in the game. It is so natural for kids to wonder and have questions about things! We don't want to dim their wonder! But as parents it's our job to teach them that we are ALL DIFFERENT!!!!!!!! If we see someone who looks different or acts differently or doesn't share our same interests or opinions, it's ok to wonder and or be upset. It's not ok to laugh or point or make fun of them. If my 5 year old can grasp this concept, anybody can. They are never too young to learn. And we can always take the time to make the time to have these conversations. Kindness always wins, bottom line. And as parents, it is our privilege and our duty to lead kindly.

YOU made a difference this year!

YOU made a difference this year!

The end of the year is a time to reflect and we have some pretty wonderful things to reflect on! To say we are thankful for each and every one of you is the understatement of 2016! We could not do any of this without YOU! Yes, YOU! With every story shared, picture taken, act of kindness completed, conversation sparked from your t-shirt, comment typed, etc... we are beyond grateful. And no, we are not just saying this because that's what companies SHOULD say around the end of the year. We screenshot so many comments, stories, emails, etc... to each other and BURST with excitement. We recognize your names from orders & social media and we feel like we know you. That is the wonderful (and sometimes creepy) thing about technology. Wherever you are, whomever you are with, you are not alone. We have learned so much from you and hope in return we have given something back to you! You are a part of our Mama Said Tees family and we are pretty darn proud of it! We believe this is more than a super cool kindness empire of fun stuff, but this is a way of life. We believe these messages truly will change the world, and you are all making that happen! So thank you from the bottom of our overflowing hearts. We wish we could knock on your door to deliver hugs & homemade cookies (that would likely contain dog hair & kid spit)! Remember that YOU have made a difference this year. You have made a difference in our lives. We are wishing you the happiest holidays and cannot wait to see what 2017 has in store for everyone!

Planning to be Present

Planning to be Present

Planning to be present. Sounds like an oxymoron huh? Maybe it is, but for a planner like me, it's the perfect plan to avoid guilt & stress.
What does "Be present" mean to you? Does it mean to drop everything and play a game with your kids? Get off your Facebook and finish your work? Take a deep breath and say "om"? We created our hoodie as a reminder to check in and even as co-creater I feel a sense of guilt every time I think about it. How can I be present in all facets of my life at the same time? Well I've realized that it's impossible and to squash this guilt I've come up with a plan; a plan to be present. 
Think of your life as a pie chart, or better yet a giant pizza cut into pieces! (Garlic, tomato, mushroom & spinach please ... mmmm) Okay anyways, each slice is a different area of your life! Mine would include my kids, husband, dog, family, friends, mama said tees, dance, hobbies, coffee drinking, texting with CS, sleeping, etc... Some slices bigger than others (like the sleeping slice would be sadly small and tired looking and the texting with CS slice would be HUGE with extra toppings & cheese), but when put all together they make up my life. Think about your pizza slices! What are all the things that make up YOU? (If you're really digging this idea try to draw them out!) So how can you be present in all aspects of your life without spreading yourself so thin that you can't enjoy any of it? Well, here is my solution (don't worry I'm trying it with you all so we're in this together)...plan out your presence. 
When you are focusing on one slice of your life, do it well. When you are working, work hard without distractions. When you are missing your friend, find time to pick up the phone and call them to catch up! When you are spending time with your significant other, schedule a sitter so you can have alone time. When you are focusing on your kids, put your phone away and make memories. When you are living in the moment, take a deep breath and just be. And when you are drinking coffee ... okay let's be honest, we could all drink coffee while walking on a tight rope holding a baby panda. Anyways, you get the point. Plan when you CAN be present and make the most of it. I know, it can't always happen because, well it just can't. Most nights catching up on the day with my husband includes simultaneously making dinner for my kids, telling said kids not to push each other, yelling at my dog to stop barking and answering an important email from my phone. This is what we like to call mother-tasking and this is life. Our slices of pizza all get chewed up and end up mushed together into our stomachs and...okay enough with the pizza analogy.
So I guess my long-winded point is that planning to be present might just diminish that sense of guilt you have when you hear the words "be present". You know what time you are dedicating to which areas of your life and when you can do it the best! And ahhhhhhh those moments will feel good! And if you're not a planner, then I'm sorry you read any of this, but if you are a planner I hope this helps a little. Instead of doing it all at once while spread so thin you don't remember what you are talking about, plan and do each thing REALLY FREAKING WELL! You may dedicate less time to each thing, but the quality trumps the quantity! Hmmm maybe all along when my husband says he can't multi-task it isn't an excuse for being inferior to me and not getting stuff done. Maybe he just already has it figured out .... HAHAHAHAHA yeahhhh right. 
Okay team. Hands in on 3... 1, 2, 3 ... PLAN TO BE PRESENT and DO IT REALLY WELL! There's no better time to try than now with the holidays upon us! And if all else fails just wear your PRESENT hoodie with a big bow on your head because YOU are AWESOME and the BEST PRESENT EVER! 
Happy planning & living in the moment!

The Truth About the Holidays - My normal

The Truth About the Holidays - My normal

How many of you find yourself in a "holi-daze" this time of year? Planning, prepping, inevitably feeling like you're failing at something?! Well me too. Meeeeee too.
This year was unlike any other as it was our busiest month in MST history (YAY & THANK YOU EVERYONE). We had (& still have) events, huge sales & crazy restocks so to say our work life was a little hectic is an understatement. Then add traveling out of town for Thanksgiving followed by 35 people at your house the next day for a family party and your house looks like a slightly better version of a college frat house? What to do ... 
Well I did what any other slightly neurotic, wanna-be overachieving & secretly loves having last minute chaos, mom would do. I went to the hardware store, bought paint, and painted my dining room. Yes, you read that right. Because all the time I didn't have to get through my life without a bottle of wine somehow needed to include remodeling my dining room. Insert "home owner guilt". And "home owner guilt" loves to pop her ugly head out RIGHT before parties. Why haven't I placed more time making my house look nice over the last 5yrs I've lived here? Why have I been so content with blackout paper blinds on my windows because the idea of buying & hanging window treatments is daunting? Well okay ... we just won't let anyone in our bedroom, but the dining room, yep we can handle that! 
So check. I did it. I painted my dining room, got a new light fixture, rug & mirror and took a deep breath of pride, of course after I commented on how we "obviously still need a new table, to hang pictures and to remove that hideous shelf I've hated since I met my husband", but I did it. My dining room looked great! And then there was the rest of my house... food remainders & unknown substances spread on tables, stained & eaten rugs (I THINK our furry child can take credit for those, but can't guarantee it), and a black hole under my couch that consisted of lucky charms, toy cars, dog hair & a dried up strawberry stuck ... I mean STUCK to our floor! (insert gag) WHY?! Well you can imagine the angry, frantic, stressed person who yelled at her kids about 15,000 times as they took out item after item that I put away. Insert "mom guilt". And she is just about the worst type of guilt. Why haven't I been spending the last few days enjoying moments with my kids instead of scrambling to finish work & redo my dining room? Being a mom is WAY more important right? Well right, that is until I notice the perfectly placed holiday decoration ripped apart in the hallway. "Mom guilt" likes to check in like every hour on the hour until something else sets you off! I know you know how that one goes. 
Alright finished. Semi-cleaned, decorated house with kids still in tact and just slightly bouncing off the walls. Cue Thanksgiving. We hopped in the car & drove to my favorite place, Wisconsin. My mom did everything. Had every detail planned & did it without so much as 1 slightly raised voice about "checking the sides" with a roll of the eyes like everyone should have been reading her mind. My sister and I are versions of her. We appreciate her chaos & stress. Sometimes we don't handle it or hide it and are bat$hit crazy, but I believe it is because we care. Well anyways she handled this holiday like a PROFESSIONAL. This was our first family holiday since my nanna, her mother, passed. It was emotional. We were sad. I know my mom made it extra special for everyone because of this. She is a rockstar. And then the "daughter guilt" creeps in. My mom, sister & aunt did all of this & brought dishes to pass and were ready to have fun, meanwhile I was so happy that I didn't need to lift a finger, that I literally didn't lift a finger. I had dark circles under my eyes, kids with unbrushed hair, and a certain haze I was walking through thinking about the amount of work I still needed to do at home. Why didn't I put more effort into this holiday? Why didn't I make it special for anyone? Thank goodness my family is freaking amazing & let my "daughter guilt" subside. 
And check. Thanksgiving. Man I wish I had taken left overs home. Cue a night of preparing our shop for Black Friday & eating a sub-par grilled cheese to satisfy my hunger while dreaming of gravy. Shop is ready. C&C are ready for the wonderful chaos that is about to arise! And we wake up & we did it! Website is working, people are happy & we can take a sigh of relief. Holy crap I'm tired. Insert nap. Thank goodness for my mother-in-law who took the brunt of my kids while I got an hour of sleep and my husband ran last minute errands. Alright it's 12:00, omg it's 12:00! People are coming in 3hrs and I look like a disaster and I haven't finished setting tables or baking. (Those of you wondering what dinner looked like? Well it looked like Italian food ordered in ... thank goodness)! Anyways, I pride myself on my baking skills I learned from my mom & nanna. I make a mean dessert! I never, I repeat NEVER buy desserts from the store. It just feels like I'm cheating. Well insert "party host guilt". I waved my white flag and surrendered. Sent my husband to the store to get desserts. Thankfully he showed up with a Portillos chocolate cake (which is HEAVENLY if you haven't tried it) and some goodies from a bakery. Okay fine. Good enough ... I suppose, but I will never, I repeat NEVER let this happen again. Somehow 2.5hrs passed and I'm not showered and I'm freaking the F out. (For your eyes I will censor my real words, but I have an admitted potty mouth!) Ok texted Colleen S and Colleen L in a panic! They instructed me to "get in the shower NOW, you can do it." Okay I did it. I'm ready. People are arriving. Bring out the wine. I'm ready. Chaos & family fun filled my house and I ended the night finding my home address stamped ALL OVER 3 of my walls. Yes. Out of the tons of children at my house, it was my own. Never had a doubt in my mind especially after I asked and he said "yes I did that". Mmmmm Hmmmm. Bright side? It wasn't the newly painted wall in the dining room. Guess I just need to paint the rest of the house now too. Anyways while our last guests stayed due to the fact that I pressure people into hanging out with me my husband started to clean up. And there came "wife guilt". Should I be upstairs helping him? Ehhh nah. Get out of here "wife guilt". Ain't nobody got time for that! 
So we did it. We got through these holi-daze with a little "post holiday guilt" for saying that we "got through it". I'll do better next year. I will plan better, and prep more efficiently and .... let's be honest. No, no I won't. But I will remember what a wonderful time I had watching my kids play with their cousins, seeing generations of family sharing stories while laughing, and watching my little cousins paint my husbands toes. Memories were made & at the end of the day that is all that matters. It truly is a WONDERFUL LIFE and what better way to remember that than to go through tons of stress and then write a blog about it. 
If you're anything like me give yourself a break. Be proud of what you are doing instead of what you should be doing. That's what I tell myself over and over again when my "give yourself a break guilt" comes in. But truly I'm totally going to enjoy the next holi-daze with welcome arms because I am so grateful for who I share them with and the memories we make. 
Would love to hear a little bit about your holi-daze in the comments! Anyone like me here? We should arrange a post-holi-daze conference to all brush each other's hair, give each other compliments & pat each other on the back! xoxo CB

Shop Small. Shop Kind. Something for everyone.

Shop Small. Shop Kind. Something for everyone.

We never truly knew the meaning of "Shop Small" or "Small Business Saturday". I mean, we knew what it meant, but we were so naive to what it REALLY meant for business owners out there. The ones who can't leave their work at work and can't take a sick day! The ones who have operations, finance, management, marketing, custodial engineering, secretary & coffee run person into one job title. The ones who often juggle raising a family where making dinner coincides with answering emails and a run to the post office includes a baby on your hip. The ones who have a passion that is unstoppable! The ones who see their visions come to life and see the joy their work brings to others! Well saying "we get it" now is an understatement. We SOOOOO get it! It's exhausting and wonderful all wrapped into one and we are SO honored that you trust us this holiday season. We've created a little gift guide of all things Mama Said Tees in case you're missing the perfect something for the perfect someone, or thought we just sold t-shirts! ;) 
Shop Small. Shop Kind. Something for everyone.

Last Minute Halloween!

Last Minute Halloween!

Are you the person who wakes up Halloween morning thinking it's still September? Yeah ... me too! Somehow the month of October ALWAYS flies past me and I'm left feeling like a walking zombie scrambling to make it magical for my kids! Well here are some things I've been able to whip together in the past so if anyone is like me, you still have time!
1) Halloween craft: Buy some mini pumpkins from the grocery store, get out your kid's paint set & go to town! Have them help you paint and decorate! Activity to keep them busy while waiting for trick or treat that will turn into an adorable decoration for your doorstep! 
2) Halloween Snack: Go get some Ho Ho's and Milano cookies! Open the packages, eat one to make sure they're good (trust me, quality taste testing is important), and decorate! Buy some decorating gel and make funny faces or gravestones to put on top of cupcakes (that you can easily buy at the store)! Find the chocolate crumble sprinkles and VIOLA! You should be on "America's Next Great Baker"! 
3) Halloween Costume: We are all about "practical costumes". This is what I say instead of admitting that I didn't spend the time or money to go pick out something from the store! ;) Here are a couple of our costumes from the past!
a. Al Borland! Throw on a flannel, some face paint, and a hat and look over a fence! Nailed it!
b. Skeleton! (A kind skeleton at that)! We headed to H&M kids and found a skeleton sweatshirt & hat this year! BOOM! Now feed that cutie some candy!
c. A DINOSAUR FAMILY! We rocked our dinosaur hoodies from Wolfe & Scamp for Aden's birthday party this year and you know what? That sounded like the perfect thing for Halloween! Multi-purpose & he can wear it ALL year! 
And if all else fails, you can just go as yourself. Frazzled hair - check! Dark circles - check! Sweatpants - check! ;) 
And since I'm always last minute I'm going to run to buy our trick-or-treat candy ... and likely taste test it during nap time because #MomsHaveMoreFun (especially when we're scrambling like a chicken with our heads cut off)!
Happy Halloween everyone! And because we love you more than candy,
we are offering 31% off for the next HOUR!

HAPPY SHOPPING!

MST participates in Kindness in Chalk 2016

MST participates in Kindness in Chalk 2016

In light of October being National Preventing Bullying Month, we were a part of something TRULY KIND yesterday to bring awareness. “Kindness in Chalk” is an anti-bullying movement started by a woman from Minnesota that is now a national event where kids all over the country write messages of love at their schools or at home in hopes of spreading kindness.  Last Friday I had the very special opportunity to stand up in front of the students at my big kids' school and tell them all about it. They listened attentively and all promised to think about a positive message over the weekend they could write yesterday. Little did I know how hard they would think. How much heart and love they would put into their inspiring messages! I took dozens of pics! Will share more in a fb album later ;)

I asked the 8th grade class to kick off the day by writing their messages so that the younger kids could follow their lead. Our principal and their teachers have been drilling kindness and leadership all year, and they most certainly shined yesterday!

They did an AMAZING job! I am SO proud of them! This class has a special place in my heart because my niece is in it, and I think she's pretty awesome ;) (top left in pic below standing by the message that embodies the memory of her aunt and my dear sister, Shannon.) Shannon was the key component to yesterday, because if she hadn't been tragically killed, our fiery mission to spread kindness wouldn't burn as bright.

Our message that "everybody is different, different is normal" was highlighted in many forms yesterday. It filled our hearts with so much joy to see the love and time these kids put into their messages. Many of them ran over to me and took me by the hand, proclaiming that I MUST see their message! They were messages of love, faith, understanding, compassion, acceptance and hope. I've never been more hopeful <3 Seeing Ryan's class as the first class outside didn't hurt!

As wonderful as the entire day was, the wheels in our heads are spinning on where we can go from there. We have the kindness torch lit, and now we need to carry it and light the way for EVERYONE! So don't worry. We have some things in motion ;) And we can't wait to share them! In order to ACTUALLY prevent bullying, we HAVE to talk to our kids. They want to hear it. They want to love and be loved! It feels so much better to just be nice & kind. 

So THANK YOU MinneMama Adventures for starting this initiave to teach and spread kindness. And THANK YOU The Patchery for reaching out to us and encourage us to participate!  It was a heck of a time! CB had tons of fun writing messages in her neighborhood with Aden, and I had tons of fun overseeing an entire school come together for one reason: LOVE. Love always ALWAYS wins!
