Top Dinner Requests Made by my Kids

dinner request by my kids

My kid’s favorite night of the week is “kid’s choice” for dinner. I allow this partly because they love it and partly because I really don’t like cooking dinner, seeing how they rarely eat it anyways. When I allow then to choose, I don’t alway make what they ask for, obviously, since half (or more) of their choices are completely ridiculous. Here are some of their favorite requests, only some I have actually made. 1. Waffles 2. Pancakes 3. Lucky {Read More}

Reasons I’m Late

reasons I'm late

I try to be on time places, I real do. I pride myself on being pretty organized and can get around very efficiently…but my kids?? Ehhh, not so much.

Here are ten of most common ones: 1. Someone cannot find their shoes. 2. Someone {Read More}

Neighborhood Treats for Every Holiday

Every holiday, we take turns leaving “mystery treats” at different friends houses and then returning the treats to others and so on and so on. It’s such a fun way to spread the holiday love and the kids think it’s SO exciting to get that mystery treat and then love repaying the tradition to someone {Read More}

Mornings can be stressful. SCHOOL mornings can be cRaZy stressful! Time limits, tired kids and over worked mamas can lead to rushing around and, often, not getting out of the door on time.

Two are usually up and eager to get ready and one would sleep later if I let her, but then another combo of two are happy and my oldest fights with me on every {Read More}
