My kids had the worst cradle cap as babies. With my first babies (twin boys), I had no idea why my kid’s hair was matted down until my Mom came to visit. She told me that I needed to work on their cradle cap. I was too afraid to scrub their heads very hard so it was building into a very bad case. Their heads would even bleed if I scrubbed it to hard.
I love seeing how other people actually live in their homes. If you stay with them you can see how they really organize their kitchens, if they use different spices while cooking or even how they handle laundry. Recently we stayed at my sister’s house and when I walked into her laundry room I saw her messy laundry detergent cups on the counter. Hi Jenny! I bet you love me sharing this on the internet. 🙂 I actually was just shown in the past year by another friend how to keep the laundry detergent cup clean so I was happy to share it with her. We are both shocked we hadn’t figured this out years ago.
Do you remember thinking you couldn’t wait until you were out of school so you never had to do homework again? Then you become a parent and realize you have to go through the whole homework experience again. After the first few weeks of 3rd grade, I just wanted to figure out a way to get through our homework without tears.
Walking into a newly built home always brings house envy to me. The fresh smell and new fixtures makes me realize that our house needs some updating. It is the little things in a house that makes it feel new or out of date. The few things I always feel makes a home feel new are door hardware, lighting and fresh carpet.
About 6 months ago we replaced our rug in our living room. It helped to freshen up the space but I was ready to get to step 2 immediately…replace the door knobs.
I am not a doctor this is just our experience. If you suspect a problem please see your doctor.
“You must head immediately to the MUSC Children’s Emergency Room.”
There is nothing like that statement to completely flip your emotions out of control. It feels like you have been sucked down a tunnel and you can see the doctor speaking but you feel like hear what is her or she is saying because you are down in a black tunnel and are getting scared.
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.
