Last Friday Night I was blessed to have a heart to heart about parenting with some amazing women- Pam, Jessica from Pretty Providence, Kelly from Dixie Dollar Deals, and Heidi from One Creative Mommy. We spent a lot of time talking about how social norms are making it hard to be a parent. Sometimes doing the…

How about a Summer Fun Calendar to go with the Summer Chore Charts?  I am not 100% sure I’m going to use this on a weekly basis, but for sure on our slower weeks!  Being that my boys are just 3 and 5, if they are needing some motivation to keep up on their Summer…

Nathan has outgrown my Pre-K Chore Charts over the last year, so I decided to make him a new Summer Chore Chart to use this summer.  If this system works for him, then I’ll adapt it into a long term Chore System later in the summer that can be used all the time!  I also…

The dreaded happened….I woke up yesterday morning to hear my sweet Davis say, “Mom, the tooth fairy forgot to come.” The disappointment in his face – gut wrenching. I consoled him the best I could with tales of how the tooth fairy had too many teeth to get to last night and she probably didn’t…

BEN 10!  My boys are obsessed right now!  It’s a show we discovered on Netflix that has apparently been around for a while.  From my understanding it was really big in other countries and is just kinda getting popular here in the US!  All I know is that it is the one show that both…

Teacher Appreciation time is here! I love to spoil my kids teachers! Today I  wanted to share a bag topper I made today that fits perfectly on a school lunch bag. One of the best things I have learned as a parent is to plan ahead for teacher appreciation in the fall when school supplies…

Happy Friday everybody!  I decided to go back to some of my older Pre-K Packs and create their Expansions!  So, today I’m sharing the Dinosaur Pre-K Expansion! This is the Expansion Pack to the Dinosaur Pre-K Pack!  These learning activities are more challenging than those that are in our basic Pre-K Packs!  I generally create…

Dylan in my 30 week Ultrasound! With only 6 weeks left until baby Dylan arrives, I figured I really need to get my butt in gear and get working on her nursery!   Baby girl does deserve a cute room after all! Earlier in my pregnancy I had thought about painting the furniture I had…
