“It is one thing to show your child the way, and a harder thing to then stand out of it.”

Robert Brault 

“Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children.”

Charles R. Swindoll 

“Your children need your presence more than your presents.”

Jesse Jackson 

“We were given two ears but only one mouth, because listening is twice as hard and important as talking.”

“Listen earnestly to anything your children want to tell you, no matter what.”

Catherine M. Wallace 

“Listen to your child. When they communicate feeling tired, overwhelmed or report having fun and being satisfied, notice what’s going on.”

Dr. Janet Taylor 

A reader asked me to write my hit about over scheduling our kids, so here goes. As always, this is my humble opinion, so take what you want and leave the rest.


You are a Super-mom, and you know your child. Is he or she into going a mile a minute before school, after school, and beyond?


Or does she or he like to cuddle up with a good book after school and just chill?


It really doesn’t matter what I think about over scheduling, or even about the fact there is such a term, which in of itself implies judgment. What matters is what your child wants and needs. And that you’re in tune and grounded enough to notice this and deliver it as best as you can.


So if you’re asking me for a cookie-cutter answer and prescription, I ain’t going to give it to you Supermoms. I’m all about love n light n balance n moderation n Prana. And listening from within. I am not about judgment and telling people what to do (no matter what the haters say LOL).


So rock on with your bad self, Supermom.. And choose your child’s activities wisely, so his or her schedule is a beautiful reflection of his or her unique self.


Have the best day ever!

Super-Mom of the Month

Super-mom Kim Cherelli


WOW!! Supermom of the month.    I was shocked to say the least when Taylor mentioned she wanted me to be her super mom of the month.  Me?  I never thought there was anything super about me.  I’m as average as average is, nonetheless I was and am honored to be thought of.


I met Taylor a year ago during Teacher Training at Prana Power Yoga.  I was instantly drawn to her energy and knew I was in the right place.  I didn’t know why I decided to become a yoga instructor nor did I know what I was getting into.  You see prior to signing up for the 8 week teacher training I think I practiced yoga about a dozen times.  I woke up one day and said “ I think I’d like to be a yoga instructor”  I proceeded to ask my yoga instructor at BSC how one goes about becoming an instructor.  She told me about Prana and here I am a whole year later.  I wasn’t really sure what I was looking for other than the fact I was looking for “something” the something that yoga instructors have.  I’m learning every day and I’m a work in progress but this is a journey and I am excited to see where it takes me.  The teacher training was an emotional and beautiful experience.  As quickly as the thought popped into my head to become a yoga instructor the same happened for my understanding why.  I’m understanding I am where I am suppose to be right now at this moment.  Stress is not as prevalent as before and I’m understanding people a bit better.


So, a lil about me.  I’m a single mom of one 18 year old son.  I don’t consider myself any different than the next mother. I never found raising a child difficult because it came naturally to me. .  I raised him simply the way I wanted to be treated.  I always knew I wanted to be a mother. I was 24 when I found out I was pregnant and afraid to tell my mother.  I knew what she would say or better yet the look or her face would tell me how disappointed she was.  Most people know my situation and how my son was the result of an abusive relationship, however I wouldn’t have change a thing.  I had to go through that for my son to be born.  If I didn’t then he wouldn’t have been born and I can’t imagine my life without him.  People congratulate me for being a single mom  my son does too but I don’t think I deserve any special credit.  Putting aside all my heartache and struggles in my life, it’s nothing compared to what some are going through.  I do count my blessings and I feel blessed to have been given this gift of motherhood.  There are those who want children and can’t   I am so very thankful and I can’t say it enough…..It’s truly a blessing.

“where you are at this moment is where you are suppose to be”

Sending love and light to all
