To the Mom of the “Naughty” Child

To the mom of the “naughty” child, I see you trying to get him to hold still and listen during story time. I see you giving her “the look” when she speaks out of turn during swimming lessons or t-ball practice. I see the hurt in your eyes when someone says “He sure is naughty”.


Real Life Treasure Hunt!

Awhile back, I read an article on geocaching and found the idea of it fascinating. Now that it’s getting warmer out, we decided to give it a try! You download an app or go to Geocaching. We started out with the free app, which lets you search for geocaches in your immediate area. I was


The Ivory Soap Experiment

I received a bar of original Ivory soap in the TLC VoxBox I received from Influenster this week and I almost couldn’t contain my excitement. Not because we use Ivory soap, but because I never think to buy it and I knew just how I’d use it. As the school year winds down, I thought


Best Books for Kids- Preschool Edition

When Luke was learning to read, I was completely clueless as to how to teach him. I knew to concentrate on sight words and phonics patterns, but I was really afraid that I wouldn’t be able to do it! I also had no idea what books to begin with. It seems like the books you

When Did I Become “Just a Mom”?

I quit my job in February of 2011. I cannot believe that I haven’t worked in 3 years! In some ways it seems like just yesterday that I became a stay-at-home mom, but in others I feel so far removed from the workforce that it seems I was never really there. But when did I


Send Them or Hold Them Back?

I have been thinking about whether to send the twins to kindergarten when they turn five or to wait pretty much since they were born. I never understood why people held their kids back a year when it was just Luke, but I think that was because he was so old for his class to begin


Valentine’s Day Heart Suncatchers

I have seen things floating around Pinterest using Borax to make crystals, so I thought I’d try it myself. This activity was super easy and the results were great! The kids really enjoy looking at them hanging in the kitchen window. One word of caution, do the pouring of the Borax yourself, I’m not sure
