Something is so wrong.
My house is clean. Like I had to try really hard to figure out chores for my kids today.
It's not possible. Have I finally figured out a system that works?
Well if I did, you all need to know about it.
I'm sure you've seen your friends on facebook checking out Tidy Up on Netflix or reading The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Did you roll your eyes? Me too. Hard too. Like could see my brain. Li...Read Full Post »

If you had parents like mine, you were polite to everyone. If you weren't, you were in some serious trouble.
So a thought hit me yesterday while checking out at our local mini mart. I walked up, said Hi How are you? She responded with good and you? I said great. She said good, thanks. She immediately was like, no...that doesn't make sense. Haha. I said girl, me all the time.
So the more I t...Read Full Post »

Well hello everyone. Of course the stranger I'm talking about in the title of this is me. I fell off the wagon. After you get to know me (or if you already do) you will know that I fall off of things a lot. However, this year is going to be different!! How you ask? With one word.
Yeah, one word. It's going to shape my entire 2019!! My word for the year is Consistency. Lord knows that is my biggest fight! I suck at it to put it fra...Read Full Post »

Soooo, school is starting soon. Most parents are over the moon excited to send their kids to school and get back on a routine. If you homeschool, this means your summer vacation is over too! However, that being said, I'm excited for school to start as well. We need routine for this family of 6 to not lose their sanity completely. Mind you, I said completely. Every mom and dad has lost at least a portion of their sanity. It's a happy time though.
So this school year we are...Read Full Post »

Why is it that we expect our kids to walk away feeling confident in their intellegence when we give them a score of average on testing? When I took my SATs, I got an "average" score. I walked away from that feeling normal, like I could never do anything spectacular. Yet here I am killing it!! When we teach our kids that there is a below average, average, and above average....they will never see themselves as anything more than that. That's sad. To me, its down right heart breaking.Read Full Post »

Can we just stop? Please? We are losing great relationships with family and friends over a difference in opinions! To all those protesting...how about turning that energy to doing something that will really make a difference. Like handing out food and blankets to the homeless and poor. Even volunteering at your local shelters. You can make a difference that way! Standing there with signs saying things like "Trump's not our president" isn't doing anything. I will also add that if you are a cit...Read Full Post »

Let's take a moment and appreciate all the diapers that have passed through this house.....Okay that's enough. 10 years people. That's how long I've been buying and changing diapers. NO MORE!! All 4 kids are doing their thing on the potty. No diapers...that is something that seemed so far away and unreachable. Yet here we are. My littlest is only 2 1/2. Not one of my others were potty trained that soon. I credit potty training both toddles at the same time. Team work is dream work!! I'm still...Read Full Post »

We just celebrated a birthday. My 3rd born just turned 4. I can't believe how fast time goes. Everyone tells you that it will go fast, but man, until it happens, you have no idea what they are talking about! In a couple of months my oldest will be 10. I don't feel like I"m even close to old enough to have a kid in the double digits. I always thought you had to be old to have a 10 year old...guess not.
On another note, all 4 of my girls are out of diapers!! Hallelujeah!! I...Read Full Post »

The world we live in has turned to violence to solve all their problems. The happenings in Dallas are awful and it doesn't fix anything. All it does is create more hate. More hate for races, police, and any other thing people can find. And what is their answer to it all? Killing innocent people. Are there bad people. Yep. Are all the people like those people all bad? NO! I just can't fathom how these people think. Do they think they are going to kill off an entire group of people? It's just n...Read Full Post »
