This year has been a tough one, but nothing has brought me more joy than knowing that our home improvement skills are going to get a bit better. No, we're not taking DIY classes or having a remodeling specialist give us a complete overhaul (though that would be amazing, right?).

The hit show Fixer Upper is coming back to and we're super hype.

After five seasons on HGTV, Chip and Joanna Gaines are bringing their home improvement show to their own network next year. If you're anything like us, you've been waiting with bated breath for an update since they shared they were coming back to TV on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in 2018.

According to People, the show brought in 17 million weekly viewers during its final run in 2018. But, even after a successful run, the couple shared in a blog post their decision to "catch our breath for a moment and strengthen the spots that are weak and give lots of love and attention to both our family and our businesses."

"These past few years, we've continued tackling renovations and projects, doing the work we're passionate about, but I don't think either of us anticipated how the show would become such a permanent fixture in our hearts," the parents to five children said in a recent statement. "We've missed sharing the stories of these families and their homes with you, and we're excited to do that again very soon!"

As much as we wished the new episodes aired this year, we'll have to wait a little bit more. The household show was set to debut this October, but has been pushed back because of the coronavirus pandemic. The new series will launch on Chip and Joanna Gaines' Magnolia Network, and will also include a cooking show hosted by Joanna Gaines.

Congrats, Chip and Joanna! We're glad to see you going back to your home improvement roots.

Rarely is a woman more concerned with what her body needs than when she's pregnant. We start to question and research everything, right? From swearing off turkey sandwiches to diving down the rabbit hole of prenatal supplements that make up what we lack, the stress of overthinking is real, mama.

One of the main reasons we launched the Motherly Shop is to help take some of that stress away. We've tracked down the best brands and products developed by people (and in many cases, women!) that truly work to serve the needs of real mamas, especially throughout the overwhelming transition into motherhood.

That's why we knew we had to introduce mamas-to-be to the science-backed and expertly-formulated protein collagen for pregnancy from Needed. And as one of our bestsellers, it's clear you've been looking for it, too.

These kids dishes don’t look like kids dishes

And that's exactly why my toddler loves them. ❤️

My 4.5-year-old is, let's say, spirited in his opinions. He very clearly knows what he wants and doesn't want (oh to have the confidence of a stubborn preschooler!). And what he doesn't want right now is anything that looks too babyish. "That's for babies," he'll say if I give him anything with primary colors or looks too miniature. He doesn't want the baby fork and spoon, he wants what grown-ups use. He doesn't want the baby plastic cups and plates, he wants the glass and ceramic ones.

Well, you can see where this is going.

I had to find something that would satisfy his "not a baby" opinions but still not shatter to pieces if he accidentally drops it on the floor. I had to find him something that's made for kids but doesn't feel made for kids.

Talking to kids can come so easily. They have thoughts about everything and stories for miles. They see the world in a completely different light, and could ask enough questions to fill an afternoon.

But sometimes finding the right words for talking to kids can be really, really challenging. When choosing how to respond to the marker on the wall, or the seemingly unending why-can't-I battle, or in simply keeping healthy communication open with kids who don't want to talk, the words don't seem to come so easily.
