Put your child first

It’s a work in progress

Stability is key
When it comes to co-parenting, one of Bilson’s biggest concerns and priorities is stability and security. “Most important for me is that Briar is okay and secure and stable,” she told People.

I feel the need to share what I think are one of the best purchases I've made as a mom …..fubbles, they are no spill bubbles!!!!!! Seriously they are game changers. Especially for little ones who are bubble obsessed. Thank you fubbles! I sound like I work for the company lol @lucygriffindor_nemeth #fubbles

That said, bubbles aren’t exactly home friendly. “I feel the need to share what I think are one of the best purchases I’ve made as a mom…” Bilson wrote in a post. “… Fubbles, they are no spill bubbles!!!!!! Seriously they are game changers,” she added.
