Mary Poppins is my parenting inspiration. OK, Mary Poppins is my EVERYTHING inspiration. There’s a new movie out, Mary Poppins Returns, starring Emily Blunt and Lin Manuel Miranda. Despite it being a musical, I can’t wait to see. Recently, because my boys were learning about the women’s suffragette movement, I showed them the original Mary Poppins film. And they loved it!

In this week’s video, I talk a bit about why I love the character of Mary Poppins so much and how she inspires me. Who is your parenting inspiration? Let me know in the comments!

And if you’re looking for something to do this holiday weekend, might I suggest purchasing tickets to Mary Poppins Returns? That’s what my family will be up to!
