As we have started to redo the boy’s room and combine them there have been a few growing pains. Mainly that we sold the big bed before we bought new beds for the boys. No need to worry, it’s time to camp out. Turn lemons into lemonade right?
So once the other bed was taken apart and picked up by the seller up went the tent. In all honesty, it’s only been used once time outside… and a whole bunch of times in the living room.
Forgive the bed head, but he was super excited when he found out he was going to “camp out” in his room… at least for a few days. Continue reading “Bedtime Books – Make the Most of Them”
It’s the start of the school year, and what that means for me is nonstop projects. I’ve taken charge of the TAPs program at my school. That stands for Teachers as Parents. It is just like a separate branch of PTO. Continue reading “Key to Our Success – Teacher Appreciation”
This summer has been all about getting ready for Kindergarten. I honestly can’t believe we are already planning the school supplies we need. Picking out backpacks and lunch boxes. My oldest is headed to elementary school and I can’t wrap my head around it. Continue reading “Back to School – All About Me Time Capsule”
I don’t leave my kids often, and in fact last year Bill and I didn’t get away because of my knee surgery… but this Spring Break we knew we needed an adult trip. 5 days away… just us alone. We’ve never left them for that long before. Continue reading “While I’m Away Bags”
So I’m pretty sure I’ve expressed my love of books. All books. But for some reason, my oldest son is over it. He actually told me the other day that all of his books were “BORING”. Gaaaaaaassssssspppppp!!!! I stood there in his doorway, speechless.
I took that as a challenge. No one hates books. Especially someone I created… 🙂
He just hasn’t found the right books yet. Continue reading “High Interest Books for High Energy Kids”
Another school fundraiser? Yep. But this was one I was kinda excited about. Continue reading “Kiddo Art Gallery “
I have a problem. Although I didn’t know it was a “problem” until I was told …by my husband. On repeated occasions.
Other women sneak in clothes or makeup or new pieces of jewelry when their husband isn’t around. Not me. I sneak in kids books. It’s a rush… Continue reading “Addiction”
I’m not a hoarder. Not that I think anyway. I’m sure my husband has something different to say about it. When I was single I had tons of apartment storage and an entire garage all to myself. To me a garage has never been for an actual car, it just means MORE storage. Continue reading “When to let it go…”
Once I became a parent my view on education completely changed. Not unlike other teachers who are parents… I started seeing things from both sides and wishing I could tell parents what I know to be true. Continue reading “How to Help Your Child at School “
Hucklebaby is really into “monsters” at the moment. So anything that looks like a monster (friendly kind) he wants to see…talk about…look at…
Another weird reason I love this book…is my grandfather’s name was Fred. It’s such a simple name, but to me, it is filled with an amazing amount of love. Continue reading “Hucklebaby Book Club – Fred Friday”
