An Honest Moment…

I want to talk about some things that have nothing to do with the kids. My personal junk. Earlier today I began to get that Sunday panic feeling. The chest tightening feeling that comes along with the racing thoughts of Monday morning. Once I get to work I'm fine. I don't even know what it is [...]

Arts & Crafts Reality

She cracks me up! This is my life... Her videos are so relatable. I have the greatest intentions with my boys but it ALWAYS ends up like this... if you have kids you need to watch this 🙂 @mylifesuckers #motherhood #raisingkids #workingmom

I Hate Alarm Clocks!

January 5, 2016 2:00 AM- I finally shut my eyes to go to sleep. I have 5 hours and 40 minutes before my oldest has to be in his seat at school. The holiday break is over. 4:30 AM- I hear tiny feet and a blanket dragging across my bedroom floor. I barely have the energy to [...]

Google Auto Awesome Feature

Some are simple collages but there is a movie maker also. This YouTube video is what Google Awesome created based on the photos and videos I took of [...]

Thanksgiving Lunch

Tomorrow my son's daycare is having their annual Thanksgiving lunch. Parents are invited to come and enjoy the meal in the classroom.

How to learn telling time

We used a Dr. Seuss themed foam clock I picked up at the dollar store. Added some notes on there for reminders and then...practice, practice, and more practice 🙂 Visual learning tools work best with my boys. How do your kids best learn new things?

Homework, Oh, Homework!

Every Monday Isaiah's teacher assigns a poem for him to read. This week he read "Homework, Oh, Homework!" I absolutely loved it. Homework can be a battle sometimes so it was nice to see him enjoy his reading this time. When he gets his weekly poem at school the students are instructed to paste it [...]

Shhhh…. naptime!

Aaron fell asleep on the way from the store. I carried him carefully into the house praying he wouldn't wake up. It was already past time for his nap. I open the door and it is completely dark. Strange... where are the others? I tip toe into the bedroom and slowly lay Aaron on the [...]

How God Speaks To Me

I was driving home from the grocery store the other night with Aaron in the back seat. An old Boys II Men song popped in my head so I randomly belted out... "So now we've come to the end of the road! Still I can't let go! You belong to me! I belong toooooo youuuuu...." [...]

Can you wipe my butt please?

Can you wipe my butt please?

I'm trying to scrape something together for dinner. I have a headache. It's Monday. My 4 year old calls out from the potty... Aaron: Mama! Do we have an emergency room? Me: Where? Aaron: In our house? Me: No. The emergency room is at the hospital. Aaron: What if I hurt too bad? Me: We'll [...]
