A few months ago, I upgraded my little girls room from toddler bed to regular bed. The colors had to be just so, I was being very picky. I scoured the internet and stores for just the right bedding. My list grew of favorite girl comforters under $70 and wanted to share them with you.
Don’t we hear it over and over in the media? Men just want respect while women want to feel loved. I get it and was sorta listening but when it really came down to it I felt that they were just replacing the word love with respect and isn’t it the same thing? And I love my husband so I obviously was respecting him, right?
My other thought was that respect meant that men think people should obey what they say. Is that what they mean by respect?

I have 2 younger sisters. While growing up our fighting was intense in the house with 3 girls. We screamed, pulled hair, slammed doors and kicked all the time. Now I am super sorry for what we put my mom through because guess what!?!? My kids are now fighting and this past summer it got to a very annoying level. Siblings fighting can be a real problem and tough to stop.
I had prided myself that I was at least raising my kids to be nicer than my sisters and I were to each other (thank goodness we are all now the best of friends). This summer made me nervous, so I did what I normally do when I know that I am losing control. I went online looking for books on siblings fighting.
That is my go to word when I mess up. Hey, it could be worse right! 😉
I can’t tell you how many shirts I have thrown away because I accidentally left a sticker on their shirt and washed it. Why do schools and camps have to use stickers to remind us parents of spirit nights. I have forgotten name tags too.
Do you ever look over at your children during church service and see them completely disengaged? They are just doing their best to endure the torture we are supposedly putting them through. 🙂
My kids are good at sitting and being quiet but it is not the same as actually gaining anything from being there. It used to be that most times they weren’t even listening to a single word. I knew I needed to get my children engaged in church services.
My youngest is still in the nursery during services and if she has to come with us she can draw in a notebook. My twins are old enough to actually gain some knowledge from the readings and sermon if they were to open their ears and minds. Here is how I have been working to get the kids to actually listen a little.

My daughter Britton is 4 years old and just recently made over her room into a little girl’s pink and blue bedroom. The first thing we did was upgrade her to a big kid bed. Yes, we kept her in a toddler bed just a wee-bit too long. 😉 I am a firm believer in lots of sleep for kids therefore I stick with what’s working. My kids stayed in cribs until they were 3 and I kept her in a toddler bed until 4 1/2.
When I finally decided to make over her room, my only caveat was that I had to keep the blue rocking chair in her room. She really likes girly colors so I had to scour the stores and internet to find a girly comforter that made the blue chair work in the room.
Did you know that you have access to hundreds of free workout videos on YouTube?!?! I put out a call to my friends to see if they knew of any free workout videos on YouTube that they could recommend. So many people responded and wanted to give me their opinion of their favorites that I was overwhelmed. Turns out that all of my friends have been using exercise videos on YouTube and I had no idea that we could have access to all of this for free!
“Mommy! I had a bad dream!”
This statement is always screamed at the top of their lungs at 2:45 am, right??
I am not a Mom that does well with less than 8 hours sleep. I don’t know how my some of my fellow Moms stay up late to watch shows or to work. There are also the super crazy ones that wake up early to “gasp!” workout!! You all are rock stars!
So when my daughter started waking in the middle of the night with bad dreams I had to run out and get all the books I could to read to her about why she shouldn’t be scared.
Is your kid obsessed with kid Youtube channels like mine is? She is watching them over and over and I am trying to figure out whether these are good or bad. I was looking for a guide to kid Youtube channels and couldn’t find anything online. What in the world are these things and why are all the kids just sitting mesmerized by what’s on the screen?

Imagine being only 28 inches tall walking into a big room that has loud flushes and super loud hand dryers going off, over and over. Especially sitting on a toilet that may forcefully flush without warning! I can see why this makes most children anxious.
My little girl walks into the public restrooms with her hands over her ears before she even gets through the door. When she was really young the toilet flushed when she was sitting on it and it was months before she would go in a public toilet again. I asked some fellow Moms for solutions and of course they all had great solutions.
