Words and actions hold weight.

I made a mommy blunder this morning.  πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©
My little girl was watching a cartoon on kids YouTube and I heard the boy call someone a sissy.

I immediately told her that's not a nice word to call your friends so turn off the video AND she starts crying. She said that's not a bad word that's her name.  

On the way, taking them to school, 
I said look we have to use nice words and the word sissy meant he was saying the boy was acting like a girl.  

Both of the kids said NO Mommy,  that's not true.  That's not what happened.  

So, to avoid them being upset before the start of their school day, I said don't worry, let's just drop it.  

I kissed and hugged and said, have a good day I'll be here to get you after school.

When I got back home, the incident was still on my heart, I felt so sad that I made her cry about the cartoon incident.

I looked for the video in the history and sure enough the little girl's name was Sissy. 😩😩😩😩

I just want to hug my babies.  I feel so bad that I got on them about it.  So guess where we are going when I pick them up from school:😍😍😍😍
Their favorite yogurt shop! No limit FroYo!

Moral of the story.  Mommy's aren't always right.  We make mistakes and should always admit our faults AND ask for forgiveness from our children. 😍😍

Ways to make money!

Too funny!!  

Ok I have to tell you guys what happened! 

My little girl, took the snacks out the pantry and sold them to our neighborhood block.

She sold each pack for $1!  (We live on a small street so I just watched from the porch and she went with the neighborhood little girl door to door.)

Her tactic? She said you just have to say please and show a cute face😳😎

Needless to say she made over $8 !!!

Oh Yuk! Jetted Bathtub Cleaner

My review: 

Oh Yuk! Cleaning solution for jetted tubs:

A+++ all the way.

I seriously recommend this product.

Note:  you will only get two thorough cleanings from the 16 oz. bottle.  Each cleaning requires 8 oz. of solution to a full tub.

OR you can use 7 oz. twice AND 2 oz. ONCE for the final maintenance type of cleaning.

Overall, two thumbs up and worth the money!

Materials needed:

1. Exhaust fan or any type of air ventilation 

2. Timer

3.  Waterproof gloves

4. Old Toothbrush  & Q-tips ( to clean out the jetted tubing area) 

5. Paper towels or microfiber cloth (to wipe out excess leftover grime)

6.  Water bottle filled with plain water (used to spray out the tub and wipe out clean once you've completed the cleaning  process) 

Beginning to ending timeframe :
15-30 minutes  or maximum --One hour.
Depending on distractions 😎 

Key point: Follow the directions on the bottle and you'll be just fine!

Good luck and have fun!

My advice: don't get a jetted tub.  πŸ˜Ž

Running memories...

So, one year ago I ran this race like a crazy lady.  

Running.  Oh, yes...It was a love-hate relationship.  

I kept at it for awhile, at least once or twice a week, and then, one day, I just stopped.  πŸ˜. I should really get back into running. I really enjoyed it.  

Today is the anniversary of that race.  Thanks Time Hop for the reminder 😍

Dear Tooth Fairy,

Yesterday, January 9, 2015, was a MAJOR milestone for Gracen.

Her wiggly tooth came out and we looked all over for it and couldn't find it.  We all were sad because it was her FIRST tooth.  

She was more worried about the tooth fairy leaving money and we came up with an idea.  

Let's write the tooth fairy a letter.  She dictated while I wrote in her own words, and, here's what she wanted the tooth fairy to know:

Her first tooth loss.  Jan 9, 2015.

Score! She's happy!

 I'm curious when she will lose her top ones.  That will be funny! 😍

Question:  How old were your child(ren) when they lost their first tooth?  Were you able to save the tooth?  Please, share the stories.  Thank You.

Guess Who Road Trip Games!

We played "guess who" on our road trip with the kids.  

The kids said Guess who: "hey, how you doing want some coffee?"    

Then gracen says, "yeah,  We can get along if you drink coffee" 

I'm dying laughing.    These kids are hilarious!

Kids SEE & TELL it all.

Fast Friends.

Gracen met a new friend yesterday!  Are you surprised?  ☺️

Poor Dj. He had to endure two squealing little girls at Chuck e cheese yesterday.  They were laughing and giggling at everything!  

He's clearly not amused.  Lol maybe next time he can invite a friend to come along?  He was ready to go after 30 minutes!  Haha.

Fried Turkey

The finished product! 
This was our first fried turkey!  It was fantastic! 

My sweetie did a great job frying up this bird.  We kept the kids in the house far away from the fryer.  I've seen enough accidents on the news regarding frying turkeys, therefore, we prepared ahead of time.

The kids set up the table !!  Great job!!

Haha!  On the job just in case :-)
