Mom Spot: Mom It Forward

Moms, we all want to make a difference. Be encouraged today by checking out MomItForward, a social networking community working to change the world... one mom at a time! MIF was founded by Jyl Johnson Pattee in 2008 and is looking for great moms to start networking all across the United States and beyong. Even when you don't feel like you are making a difference you can never forget that you are an influencer! In your home, in your community, in your school or workplace, and on the web! Even if you feel like you can't take on one more thing, you will get excited when you read about what is happening among other moms through MIF.
Here's an excerpt from a recent posting ~“I’m trying to reach out to the people I care about.” I quite literally wanted to scoop her up. What do you do with such amazing kindness?
I probably acted cool, calm, and collected. But, what she did was HUGE! She stepped outside her comfort zone to make me feel loved. And she succeeded!
Then I got to thinking about something that has been on my mind for a while. How often do we take advantage of opportunities to reach out to others right when we feel like we should?~

Mom Spot: Progressive Pioneer

Here is another blog I've come across in recent weeks. She has gorgeous pictures and her post yesterday was truly fantastic.

"Maine is pretty rainy in the spring.  And I lived in Oregon for awhile and it defines rainy.  So, a little rain rarely puts me in a gray mood.  In fact, this rainy, rainy spring we've been having here in Utah has actually made me feel quite cheerful!  Each rainy day has felt like something of a celebration."

Butterfly Pavilion

Of all the child-focused exhibits I wish I could visit weekly, Butterfly Pavilion is number one. I could spend hours in the rainforest-like room where butterflies dance through the air, lush vegetation sprawls from every corner, and a delightful assortment of other tropical animals make their home. You can meet Rosie, the resident tarantula and stroke a horseshoe crab as a wonderful side-light to your Pavilion trip. (Is there a child's birthday in your future? The Butterfly Pavilion is available for parties!)


The Sunset Stroll, a monthly event, gives you a more exclusive tour where you will see activities not seen during the daylight hours. A reservation is necessary. The Butterfly Pavilion is open seven days a week and summer is a great time to go! Schools are mostly finished with their field trips and you can walk the outdoor nature trail. Everyday, new butterflies are released between 12:30 and 3:30pm, and there are great spots to have lunch, so plan to make a day of it!
