Project 52 – Week 10

March 27, 2014
Children and Gardening

Fresh, organic and cheap vegetables are the primary culprits of my new gardening obsession.  I’ll even venture to say that I am truly getting a kick out of seeing the seedlings germinate in such a short amount of time and I am waiting patiently to see the first signs of real, tangible sprouts. What I hadn’t taken into consideration is how educational this seed starting process has been for my children.

Children and Gardening

 Daily they race to the pots to see what sprouted over night or while they were at school. I have to pry the watering can out of little hands lest she drowns my poor tomatoes before they get a good start at life. This week it has dawned on me that there are so many teachable moments if we take the time to see them.

This weekend, the children will get the opportunity to start their own little gardens with the seeds of their choice. The little one says she doesn’t want any carrots in hers because they make her “burmpt,” that would be burp. She ate a carrot ONE time and burped right after and she hasn’t been the same since.

What unexpected moment have you used lately to teach your child(ren) something? Have I convinced you to start a garden yet?!!

I’m an AZO Girl

received this product for free from Smiley360 in exchange for my honest review. You can join Smiley360 here!”

You know I’m an open book…for the most part. So you know I’ve mentioned plenty of times before that water and I are not friends….at all. While I have reduced my soda intake I haven’t necessarily increased my water consumption. As a result of my blatant disregard for my body’s need for water, UTIs and I have seen more than our fair share of one another

Coco Rae Tastemaker Collection

This week I am doing something different. Instead of spotlighting my manicure for the week which doesn’t exist I want to highlight Coco Rae, LLC. A few weeks back I know you remember my post about being selected as one of Atlanta’s bloggers that got to get their own nail color in the Coco Rae Tastemaker Collection.

The collection is finally available for purchase and there is an awesome spread in the current issue of Tastemaker Magazine spotlighting all of the other amazing Atlanta Bloggers that were included in the collection. Go take a peek here. Tastemaker Mag is also a blog so make sure to look to on the right sidebar for the option to subscribe to the free publication.

Courtney is a remarkable young lady who is on her way and I would love it if you would spread the word and support her endeaver. Coco Rae polishes are 4 free, meaning they don’t contain Toluene, Formaldehyde, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), and camphor. There is a wide selection of colors and the formula covers well.
