Meet Desta Ntamere, September's Mom of the Month. Mother to three boys, owner of Ntamere Lifestyle Management, LLC, and overall amazing woman! She took some time out of her very busy schedule to answer some questions for us.
Dear sweet girl … the first time you were laid into my arms, my heart melted. It was right then and there I knew it was my job to protect you and raise you with the proper tools to go out into the world and conquer it. I hope along the way, despite the mistakes and unintentional ways I may not have always been the mother I dreamed I would be, I have instilled confidence, values and beliefs that will guide you through this world.
Ah, the dream of a well-trained dog. I am sure when we adopted Rusty and Torchy we had visions of how they would be well-mannered and perfectly trained dogs. After 7 years, one DVM degree, and one in-progress trainer certification, plus a lot of studying from the best of the best in dog training and behavior, my dogs are still a work in progress, and so am I. Here is the moment when those of you with slightly crazy dogs (I mean that in the most loving way) breathe a sigh of relief because even the vet with a passion for behavior is still learning. And those of you with easy going dogs are thinking, “Seriously what is so hard? They practically train themselves!” (and the rest of us hate you just a bit).
I think every mom has their signature “mom” meals. You know, recipes you do well and make so often your kids will forever remember you by them. One of my own mother’s “mom” meals has become a tradition for my own family and is a fall comfort food for me.
The temperatures are cooling, kids are back to school, football has started, the sun is setting earlier...fall is fast approaching! With the start of fall comes hectic & busy schedules between dropping kids off at school, activities, work, appointments, cooking, cleaning and all the other fun daily tasks. These normal daily activities make it sometimes impossible to take time for yourself and fit in a workout. Baby Boot Camp would like to tell you 10 ways to successfully turn your workout into a habit this fall! These are 10 simple little things you can change or do in your daily routine, which will help getting that workout in a little easier.
Meet Julia Moffitt, this week’s #WomanCrushWednesday! TheCityMoms of Greater Indianapolis will be sharing stories from some of the fabulous moms in our community on a weekly basis, and Julia is honored to be our first #WCW.
Julia co-anchors the WTHR Sunrise morning show from 4-9 a.m. She is a wife and mother to two kids. She chatted with us recently about what it’s like for her being a mom.
Growing up, there was always soup to end our dinner. Whether you are needing more energy, feeling sick, or postpartum healing, soup was on the menu. It is so easy throwing together a medley of vegetables and protein. I am going to share an easy soup that is wonderful anytime and nourishing for the mind and body.
The kids are in school, pumpkin spice lattes are back and fall is right around the corner! Fall fashion is my absolute favorite as there are so many great opportunities to layer your wardrobe. I have so much fun in the fall, mixing and matching in my closet…throwing on a cozy cardigan, laying a pattered blouse under a sweater, or topping off my outfit with a chunky plaid scarf.
