This past weekend I taught my daughter that she doesn’t have to share if she doesn’t want to! She has always been very generous with her things.  This is one of the perks of being in daycare at an early age.  She will play with and share her things with anyone. This past weekend she …
My 7 year old is entered in mini 4-H this summer.  This is a 4-H program for 1st and 2nd graders.  Having personally been a 10 year 4-H member, it’s fun watching him be excited about the projects and fair activities.  To learn more about 4-H, click here. My oldest chose to do a dinosaur …
I recently found out that I am unable to process certain B vitamins and Folic Acid.  Since this is a genetic condition, my children may have this issue, as well.  I began my search for a children’s multi vitamin that has the type of B vitamins that my children can process. I also wanted: a …
Have fun plans scheduled for the 4th?  People in our community do love their fireworks.  I can tell due to their having started letting them off a couple weeks ago.  One was so loud that it made our neighbor’s car alarm go off-craziness! I always enjoy implementing some of the old school games in our …
I hope that you have had a wonderful weekend.  I love Mother’s Day weekend.  Usually, my kids engage in their normal bickering, I do my usual motherly duties of cooking, cleaning, and correcting… If I am lucky I get a sweet card or an extra hug and kiss.  There is no greater role that I …
As I was skimming through a book (which is how I seem to read books now) I came across a section highlighting the importance of establishing a written set of values and rules for your family.  Meaning the parents need to be in agreement w/ what they (values and rules) are and then make sure …
Today I am linking up with Andrea from Momfessionals to discuss how we chose our kids’ names.  We always knew that we wanted to incorporate family names into our children’s monikers. 1.  Allan Joseph: Allan was named after my dad, who passed away in 1999, and my Grandpa Joe.  It was funny because the whole …
How did this happen?  I’m pretty good at being a football mom and a soccer mom, but now I am a dance mom… Feeling a bit out of my element as I get my 4 year old daughter ready for her dance recital.  The recital is in June, but we have already been consumed with …
If you hang around my house for any amount of time, one of the things you will inevitably hear from my 4 year old daughter is “Can I have a popsicle?”.  Baby girl is obsessed with them.  I switched to a healthier version a while ago, but I decided to take it one step further …
Earth Day is celebrating it’s 45th anniversary this year on April 22nd.  That is just a couple weeks from today.  In what ways do you observe this holiday?  Starting this year, I want to have this day really stand out with my kids through the “green” activities we do. I’ve found that there are Earth …
