That means it's time to share what I've learned over the past month. Here we go!
1. I have officially outgrown all of my pre-baby dresses.
And oh, I'm not pregnant in case you're wondering. I just gained weight... unless my dresses have magically shrunk, I suppose.
2. I have the best luck at Old Navy's clearance section.
So, I'm going to a wedding this weekend and didn't have a dress to wear. Then I found this cute summer dress at Old Navy for $16 on the clearance rack. I always find something cute at their clearance aisle. I didn't want to spend much on a dress I may not wear often, so this was perfect!
I decided to add a belt I already had and my mother's vintage Gucci for more formal look.

I might wear this Elie Tahali jacket for the ceremony,

and maybe this 15 years old pashmina for the reception. Do people still wear pashmina or is it a bit too old school?

Sometimes people who seem to be doing well are the ones who are going through the most. I've also learned not to compare what I'm going through on the inside with what others are showing on the outside.
Would you be extra kind to the people you encounter today? Would you also treat yourself with kindness and care? Because we all have our own challenges to overcome.
4. First grade = Lots of homework (= Lots of work for this mama)
Do your kids bring home a lot of homework? My first grader does quite a bit. Definitely more than I expected. Me no like-y too much homework-y.
What's your experience with your child's homework? What do you think is the right amount of homework? I'd love to know!
5. Pirate's Booty is like the most popular snack among kids.
And I knew nothing about it until this month. It all started when my preschooler had it for snack at school. He can't stop talking about it ever since. Then my first grader told me that's his favorite snack, too. I guess I have a lot of catching up to do...

Yes, my kids are hooked on you, Pirate's Booty.
Now it's your turn. What did you learn in September?
