17 Things Boys Need from their Moms

Standard

Very sweet. Love this ❤ I do many of these with my two boys, some they are too young for 🙂

Life As I Know It

Children need many things from their parents. They need stability, protection, nurturing, and love. They also need other things, different things from each of their parents. I have seen several such lists, and I wanted to add my opinion into the mix.

Because I am a mommy to a little boy, this is what I know. So, here’s the list of things I pray I give to my little guy, in order to help him grow into a good man – the things I think every little boy needs from his mom.

A boy needs:

To be showered with affection – hugs, kisses, all of it. Until he is big enough to not want that anymore. Then he needs you to ruffle his hair, put your hand on his shoulder, and hug him anyway. He needs to know the importance of human contact so that he doesn’t keep it from…

A Ten-Month-Old’s Letter To Santa

Standard

Very cute, very funny, very true lol 🙂

The Ugly Volvo

Dear Santa,

 I am a ten-month-old baby and I write because my mother has been sending out my “Christmas List” to people, and her list does not in any way represent the things I really want.  I could give two s#*ts about receiving stacking cups.

And I know you’re ready to make the joke about ten month-old babies and how all we want is the wrapping paper and the boxes.  Touché, SantaTouché.   We do, of course, want those things.  But I have a number of additional things I want very badly.

My list is enclosed below.  Have a lovely holiday.

First Workout

Standard

My mom and I had both been wanting to sign up at a gym for awhile now. Well for Cyber Monday we took the plunge because they were having a sale: 30 Day Trial for only $5, how could you pass that up? So we signed up with Snap Fitness.

image

We finally got our access cards so today we went for our first workout!!! So exciting!

We got there and one of the personal trainers walked us through the machines and our first workout. It was fun, we both kept laughing at each other. It is always more fun when you workout with someone lol.

image

We did the treadmill, squats, plank, mountain climbers, leg presses, then did some of the machines to work the upper body. I must say…..I feel like a noodle!!! Lol, I feel good but I definitely feel like a noodle.

We are going back Friday for our next workout and I can’t wait! So excited to start getting my pregnancy weight off and getting back to a weight I feel more comfortable with. 🙂

William’s latest discovery

Standard

Today we are spending time at my mom’s. She has these two pink plastic cups that Isabelle and William have a ball playing with but normally it involves throwing them around or banging them on things. Tonight, William decided to try something new…..

He decided that he wanted to try to suction the cup to his face lol!!

I’m sure that anyone that has kids, has been around kids, or has been a kid themselves knows what happened when he did it…….

It made a farting sound!!!

Something so simple and so silly but it caught him so off guard that it sent everyone into laughter!!

This link is to the video of him doing it lol, enjoy!!! 🙂

How can this not be an awesome blog with a name like that?? Love her stories!

Now for a few things about myself…..

I absolutely LOVE to read but obviously, with 3 kids it doesn’t happen as much as I would like lol…

I make Nursing Necklaces, I call them Nursing Baby Neck Toys and I am selling them in a Consignment Shop for the first time in January 2014!!

My mom and grandma are my two Best Friends, aside from my husband, and we spend A LOT of time together!!

I grew up having dance parties in our living room with my mom and some friends atleast once a week, and I hope my kids enjoy the same thing and have the same memory!

I hope to one day start my own business, I just have to sort through my many ideas and pick one….

I hope you all enjoy the bright sunny smiles that these pages can bring, and hope you enjoy them as much as I do!! 🙂

My First Reveal

Standard

I got my Rep Kit in the mail for Jewelry In Candles, it had my scent samples and candle in it. I was so excited and anxious to burn my candle and find my jewelry!! I got the Black Cherry Candle and it smells delicious!

image

I burned it for a couple hours before bed the day I got it but didn’t get it down far enough to get to the hidden surprise. Next morning I lit it again and it was ready by the time the kids went down for their naps!

image

Trying to get it out of the foil and out of the bag was a little difficult, it was extremely slippery. But it was covered in wax so what did I expect? 🙂 Right as hubby offered to try, I got it open!

image

This is my very first reveal with Jewelry In Candles. The first, I hope, of many.

image

Now, gold has never really been my thing but I actually really like this ring. I have been wearing it almost everyday! I love the edge of my seat, waiting to see what was hidden inside the foil. I can’t wait to do it again!!
