Ok, we have our first week of school under our belts and I feel like I’m dying! Anyone else with me on this? Schools in Texas start at 7:30am. 7:30 in the morning! Which means after getting the kids up (including my husband), getting them ready for school, breakfast, sunscreen and out the door… I’m officially exhausted by 8am. I need a nap people! But nope, there’s no daytime tv and bon boys for this mom. There’s laundry, errands, house cleaning, dinner prep, lunch prep, snack prep and maybe I get to sit down to lunch for myself. Then…. the afternoon starts… pick up for 2 kids, dance lessons, taekwondo, swim…so by the time dinner comes around I’m dead. Like seriously lay on the couch, don’t move me… dead. And this is only the first week! I’m not sure If I’m going to survive the future dance rehearsals, dance recitals, belt tests, swim tests, regular school tests!! Can I get a vacation… STAT please!Read More

As for me… not so much….I’m not a big camper… actually I’ve only gone camping once in my life and girls, it’s not for me.

So when summer rolls around, I’m always in the mood for s’mores… and whats the best part of a s’more!? Toasted Marshmallows! Which incidentally is the easiest way to decorate a cake! Win win people! You gotta try this Campfire Snack Cake!
Life is often a test of patience. We have to wait for everything. When we’re young, we have to wait to grow up, wait to get a drivers license, wait till we’re 21, and for us ladies we gotta wait in line just to pee! So believe that teaching our kids patience is pretty important for them to lead a happy life. If they learn patience while their still young, life wouldn’t as hard or disappointing. Don’t get me wrong, teaching young children patience takes…well…patience. But it can be done. I’ve found that the best way is to explain to them what will happen, so that they are mentally prepared to wait. I’ve noticed a lot of times when kids whine and act out, it’s because they don’t know or understand the process. It seems like things take forever because to them it does! When waiting seems endless, you feel hopeless and frustrated. But when things can be explained to them in a way that can prepare them for waiting, they feel more in control.Read More
