He woke up at 3am screaming crying and I watched as his eye swelled up shut …. his Dad brought him to ER and it was some form of bug bite they say ….
Teaching the importance of giving thanks is something I have thrived to do as a parent with all three of my children. Every year when my oldest had her family birthday party I would make note of which gift was from who on a piece of paper. This list of gifts with who they were from would later be used as my daughter and I sat down with construction paper, glitter glue, stencils, markers and crayons to create our own thank you notes.

My kids are always up for a party but what they didn’t realize is that we would be having a Fisher Price Servin’ Surprises Cook ‘n Serve Kitchen party! The box arrived in my home and the four year old held it hostage until Mama said “ok I will bring it downstairs and attempt to put this thing together.” I have to admit that when it comes to building things, I am not the best at following instructions, I did put the table together incorrectly the first time around but figured it out in time to be able to fix […]
