Noteworthy quotes from Josie’s Momtastic blogs:
From ‘Josie Fills Us In’

  •     “Mealtime in your house is… always fun, because Rumi loves to run to her little vegetable garden to pick something for the meal, and Indi sits at the table with a big smile on her face, waiting for Rumi to come back with a strawberry or a grape.”
  •     “The one trait you hope your girls don’t inherit from you…is being impulsive! I can be just the tiniest bit impulsive.”
  •     “To beat the crazy morning rush, you… don’t try to beat it—I join it, by joining my daughters for a 7-minute workout on our living room floor.”

From “5 Life Lessons I’ve Learned From Being a Mom”

  •     “What you choose shapes your life. I see everything in my life as a choice. When I realized that becoming a mother was a profound choice that I had the power to make, I committed myself to seeing life as a sculpting class. I’ve learned to treat every moment, every thought, as if I’m a sculptor shaping my dreams into reality.”
  •     “Mother-love is empowering. Each time I was pregnant with my daughters, I felt I was connected to the whole history of womankind, going way back through the ages. I was so full of joy, so full of love, so full of power. Motherhood inspires me every day to make the world better for women—which is the best way to make the world better for all.”
  •     “Human beings are born, not made. I used to be believe that a child was entirely shaped by her childhood and circumstances. I still think you can affect a child’s behavior and attitudes, but now that I have two daughters I see that both of them came into the world as their own unique little souls. Giving them lots of love and support helps them to be happier and healthier, but they’re very different from each other and from everyone else. We’re all snowflakes!”

“Having Josie give her beauty and fashion insight previously on theFashionSpot and now sharing her parenting experience on Momtastic shows her appeal to the entire TotallyHer community,” stated Rebecca Schmitt, Vice President and General Manager of TotallyHer Media. “She talks openly and honestly about her life as a mother and as a business owner, bringing her spirited voice and warmth to our visitors.”
