Many of us are absolutely anticipating the 3-day Memorial Day Weekend for the cookouts, the weekend getaways, the time spent with family and for some a day off from work. And there is nothing wrong with that, however we must not forget to honor our fallen heroes this Memorial Day either. This is a good time as a family to educate the little ones as to what Memorial Day is really about.
I never make recommendations or suggestions to try something unless I've done it first. So thankfully I was at Cinergy the other day and discovered that they are bringing back kids' movies again this summer. This saved us last summer. It was great and my littles were able to go watch almost every movie offered summer of 2021. I loved that they were able to watch movies that they had possibly seen
I know a thing or two about kids getting bored during the summer months. I should, I have 3 kids. I have raised one and currently have a teen at home who will before long start with the typical 'I'm bored' pleas. Over the years I've learned, it is not enough to have the latest, greatest gaming system, every game for said system known to man. The newest Iphone or tablet won't do the trick either. I
Oh man if you've ever been a struggling single mother, you know that asking for help from others is never easy. Whether it be a little extra monetary help, bills, food is scarce or trying to figure out childcare, some supermoms try to figure it all out on their own. I should know, I've been there. So when I heard about this cool new thing happening in Midland, to help single mothers and so many ot
My entire childhood, during the summer, I spent many days wanting to swim. If any of my friend's had a pool, you can bet I was blowing up their phone asking if I could go over and take a dip. If a friend or family member had a 'swimming party' for their birthday or just to celebrate the end of school, it was going to be a good summer...
Let me start by saying in my defense, I got my pool in the middle of the pandemic. I was homeschooling my kiddos, they needed something to do for 'P.E.' and I needed them out of my hair for a couple of hours a day. Not to mention everyone had the exact same idea in 2020 so the fact that we actually found 1 on store shelves felt like a sign from the pool gods.
Parents, there are not many days left in the school year. Wow! Where did the year go? It flew by. I know as parents, we are counting down the days to hear, 'I'm bored,' while our little ones are counting down to summer freedom! Staying up late, sleeping all day, pool days, sleepovers, outdoor activities and fun!
I told my little one that National Take Your Kids To Work Day was coming up and her response was, what is that? I explained how it is a day for littles to go to work with mom or dad and see what it is they do for a living? She immediately said, 'no thank you that would be boring.' Excuse you? Do you know who your mother is? Do you know what I do? lol Yes, I was offended by my 8-year-old!
I am a mother of 3, I've got quite a bit of mom knowledge under my belt but I still do not vow to know everything. I mean, almost but not quite. (I kid, I kid) I have a group of fellow mothers and my kiddos friend's moms whom I reach out to for advice and vice versa. It is extremely important to have a good circle of friends you can reach out to for a little help from time to time. Trust me when I
