Alicia Silverstone is going to be in Netflix's 'Baby-Sitters Club' reboot 🙌

Raise your hand if you were obsessed with reading The Baby-Sitters Club series growing up? 🙋♀️

We've got some news for you, mama!

Netflix announced earlier this year that they would be rebooting the series—it was once adapted for TV back in 1990—and turning it into a live-action show on the popular streaming service. And if that couldn't get any better, they just announced that Alicia Silverstone has been cast as Elizabeth Thomas-Brewer, the mom to Kristry Thomas. As a mama to 7-year-old Bear, it seems like the perfect opportunity.

If that's not a nostalgia moment, we don't know what is. Silverstone will also be on set with Mark Feuerstein, best known for his role in Royal Pains.

And, don't worry, the book's author, Ann M. Martin, will be producing the show alongside some incredible company. So we can bet that it will closely follow the original best-selling book series, touching on friendships, babysitting adventures and navigating family life.

"I'm amazed that there are so many passionate fans of The Baby-Sitters Club after all these years, and I'm honored to continue to hear from readers—now grown, who have become writers, editors, teachers, librarians, filmmakers—who say that they see a reflection of themselves in the characters of Kristy and her friends. So I'm very excited about the forthcoming series on Netflix, which I hope will inspire a new generation of readers and leaders everywhere," said Martin in a press release.

Netflix has set 10 episodes so you can binge it in one sitting once it's available. Production has begun in Vancouver so we'll be keeping our eyes peeled for an official air date.

They say necessity is the mother of invention—and nothing makes you more inventive than motherhood.

Sometimes that means fashioning a diaper out of paper towels and your older child's underpants (true story). Sometimes that means creating an innovative and life-changing weighted baby sleep sack and totally crushing it on Shark Tank. Tara Williams is the latter.

This oil completely changed my skin this summer

And I'm never going back to lotion.

For all the sweating and swimming I do in the summer, it seems illogical for my skin to be as parched as ever. But your mid-thirties (and 2020 in general) don't really seem to follow any rule book, so here we are.

A couple of months ago, I was on the lookout for a moisturizer that would not only keep my legs from looking like an ashy mess, but also truly nourish and benefit my skin. I've developed a deep interest in skin care for my face over the past few years and decided it's high time to extend that degree of consideration to the rest of my body. (After all, there's more of it, right?)

It's not that I'm too concerned with aging, but let's be real. If there's something that can be done to slow the Wrinkle Express, I'm going to give it a go. I also wanted to find something natural that wouldn't turn into a goopy mess the second I started sweating.

Enter: Esker's Firming Body Oil.

This viral post about the 4th trimester is exactly what new mamas need right now

"We are alone. Together. You are surrounded all the other mothers who are navigating this tender time in isolation. You are held by all of us who have walked the path before you and who know how much you must be hurting. You are wrapped in the warm embrace of mama earth, as she too settles into this time of slowness and healing."

Artist and teacher Catie Atkinson at Spirit y Sol recently shared a beautiful drawing of a new mom crying on a couch—leaking breasts, newborn baby, pile of laundry and what we can only assume is cold coffee, included. Everything about the image is so real and raw to me—from the soft stomach to the nursing bra and the juxtaposition of the happy wallpaper to the palpable vulnerability of the mother—I can almost feel the couch underneath me. I can feel the exhaustion deep in this woman's bones.

My heart feels the ache of loneliness right alongside hers. Because I remember. I remember the confusion and uncertainty and love and messy beauty of the fourth trimester so well. After all, it's etched in our minds and bodies forever.
