IMG_1280

Kids go through the stage when they love certain show’s then they hate them all the time, and through my 3 years of parenthood I have seen a few characters come across my television screen that I absolutely cannot deal with! You know, those annoying cartoon characters that your child just happens to be obsessed with even though they can drive you to drink! Well, today I though it would be a good idea to expose some of those little bastards just for my own enjoyment! So let’s get started:

20 Things to do Before baby is Born!

As I sit here 25 weeks pregnant with nothing really done, I realize that I need to start-up a list of things that should to be done before baby #2 arrives. When I was pregnant with my first son I was totally unprepared all they way around, and I was also a first time mother so I didn’t know what to expect, but now I feel more seasoned in motherhood. I know how hectic things can be before and once baby arrives, and I refused to be unprepared this time around. IMG_1272 Continue reading

CHORES for my 3 year old

Installing healthy habits into my son’s little mind is something that I live for! So of course I couldn’t wait until the time came to get him started with CHORES. Yes, CHORES a word hated all over the world by both adults and children, but also a very necessary word! Growing up in my early childhood days my mom did all the chores (because she is such a perfectionist, and wants everything a “certain way”), then when I hit my preteen years she started trying to make me do chores and it just didn’t go over well! Eventually once I grew up I understood all the values and things she was trying to teach me, but I also knew that I was going to start giving my children chores early, so by the time they are preteens it will be something they are use to and I won’t have to argue with my 12 year old over washing the dirty dishes everyday.

My son absolutely loves lunch and snack time, and I love hitting him with new, fresh, healthy alternatives to those meals.
