Mini Natural Hair Chronicles: Discipline

https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10153001503528485



 



I blame the minds of children's behavior today on the prenatal vitamins.  It has to be.  What else can explain the overall lack of common sense and level of disrespect that a child, not even a teenager or wanna be adult would show their parent? In the above video I happened to see on my facebook timeline, this child, not old enough to properly wipe… Continue

When My Daughter Says "I Don't Love You"

#ivysvariety When My Daughter says "I Don't Love You"



I struggle with my mother-daughter relationship.  When I first found out I was having a girl, I worried.  I'm not a girlie-girl and I don't really know what to do with one of those.  Even more so, I had a strained relationship with my own mother for as long as I could remember.  Finding out I was having a girl brought back so…

The Elf on the Shelf and Failed Parenting Tactics

Elf on the Shelf pulling ceiling fan chain



I was sitting working on my blog and registering for sweepstakes one day during my daughter's quiet time.  It's time I get to use to be productive or have a break from the insanity.  One particular day, just a few days before Christmas, I was thinking of all the presents I still have left to wrap, and then I began to think about our Elf…

10 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. quotes we should pass along to our children

As we take time to celebrate and remember the life of a man who forever changed the landscape of America, let's do more than consider it a day off of work and school. Although my children are too young to truly understand the impact of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s work, I am committed to using his powerful…

The Truth About...My Life

The Truth About...My Life

Have you ever watched Wife Swap? Or Trading Spouses? I'll admit first hand that I am addicted to these shows, no matter how trashy or ridiculous they may be. Most of the time, it makes me feel much better about how our little family runs things. It's also interesting to see all the…

If You're A Mom Who Loves Red Wine, This Is For YOU!

Let's face facts. Kids make a freaking mess. How many times have I had my little ones eat in their underwear so they don't destroy their outfits? Whoa, too many times to count. You'd THINK they would eat over the table...I only scream out the request about fifty times a day!

But, fortunately for me and my obsessive-compulsive tendencies, a fabulous new product innovation was recently funded on Kickstarter and it promises to allay my concerns…

To My Sons: Don't Marry a Girl Who Won't Give You Her Last Chip

Dear Kaleb and Kaden,

By the time you are able to read this letter you will probably wonder just what in the world I was talking about.  Well, from the time  your first set of teeth cut your gums and grew, you two love food...especially SNACKS.  Any snacks your father and I had, both of you were front and center with big eyes and smiles repeatedly saying "please.. please...chips please...chips please".  Well at least you two had manners at an early age.  With manners like that, who…

Uh, You Weren't Planned

You know that Nana is very funny.  We all laugh at the stories she tells of mommy and uncle growing up and all of the funny and wonderfully weird things that we did growing up.  Now they aren’t as funny as the two of you, but maybe that’s because I’m partial to you two…then again, you two are quite the characters.  Your father and I can’t help but smile and laugh when we think of the things that you do or say, and not to mention the things that you do to each other.  It’s sheer…

Tips for equality in parenting

Describe the workload involved in being a parent. Are you listing out the physical tasks you help your child with (getting dressed, brushing teeth, reading bedtime stories)? Or are you thinking about the mental workout (worrying about them when they are away at camp, remembering their measurements, sizes and all their friend's names) as well? Did you remember to list all those ancillary chores that keep the household running smoothly…

Creative Ways to Teach Your Kids How to Say No to Drugs

Creative Ways to Teach Your Kids How to Say No to Drugs

The teen years can be a time of great anxiety for parents. Just as your child is really beginning to assert their own independence and starting to test boundaries, the very real concern all parents feel about raising teenagers begin to loom ominously – grades, sex, peer pressure, and possibly most frightening of all, the perils of illegal drug use and addiction.

Alarming statistics

According to a study…

Giving your guy a break

My husband is a good family man. He takes excellent care of me and our son, and he participates in lots of family activities with us - even when they are no fun for adults. He is the kindest and best of men.



But I also understand that he needs breaks. Several times a year, he takes a motorcycle trip and…
