We finally got a Christmas tree. It was on the agenda but not at the forefront of the minds of the adults in this house. I suppose I was counting the fact that the mantle and the outside decorations were done, however the children were ready to stage a coup if we didn’t get a tree. So get a tree we did. We got it from Kroger, got it home and in the stand before remembering that all of our Christmas decorations were thrown out … read more
It’s that time of year again. Last year the children and I went down to Cordele, GA to spend a “Day Out with Thomas.” It’s that time of year again and I am happy to be able to offer one of you a family set of tickets (4) to go ride on Thomas the Train during the weekend of October 25-27. The organizers will try to accommodate your wishes for date and time but please know the final date and time may be at the … read more
I received free LeapFrog products in order to host the LeapFrog sponsored MommyParty. The opinions expressed here are my own…You already know!! A few weeks ago I had the honor of hosting a few moms and their children at my home to show them the awesomeness that is the new LeapReader Reading and Writing System.
There has always been a debate going on regarding whether or not children should be referred to as “bad.” Let some folks tell there is no such thing as a bad child, I am here to say different. I’ve seen “busy” and I’ve seen “bad” and there is truly a difference. A few weeks ago after getting an update on our children’s behavior in school and having both children get the same report (good by the way, #youcare) my husband and I had a discussion … read more
As a child I loved The Little Mermaid along with An American Tale…I digress. Back to Ariel. I’m sure I am getting pay back now for all of the movies that I have to watch over and over again as a result of having subjected my parents to countless views of The Little Mermaid via VHS tape. Remember those?! I watched mine so much that the tape came out and my dad had to replace it. To this day I still enjoy the movie and … read more
Happy Friday!! A few weeks ago, I mentioned here that the baby and I took a trip down to the Tanger Outlet location in Locust Grove to do a little shopping. I actually frequent that location to do most of my clothes shopping because not only are the deals great but because it is closer to me than the nearest quality mall. I used my gift card to pick up a few things for Addison to head back to school. Here’s a short video of … read more
To be quite honest with you I have major issues with overweight children. While keeping in mind there are many uncontrollable circumstances that would allow a child to be overweight, there are some that are a result of parental choices. The latter is the one I take issue with. I know as parents we are busy and I have been just as guilty of grabbing something unhealthy while on the go to feed whining, hungry children but I really try to keep those moments to … read more
This is the beginning of our last week of summer vacation. Next Monday my son will be in a new classroom, and the following day Addison will be starting her preschool experience. This summer really flew by and I feel like we got cheated. I had so many plans and things for us to do this summer, but due to money constraints required to save for moving we were forced to stay in and close to home. I don’t feel too bad because it practically … read more
