I try hard to incorporate some learning activities into my son’s day. He’s young (25 months) so there isn’t much I can do but I have figured out that he is starting to pick up on colors and shapes. Before today, all I’ve done is say things like “That blanket is yellow!” or “you’re playing with a red truck!” When...

My son just turned three, and is WAY into superheroes. It’s a lot of fun, and I love zooming around the room with him saving the world. But at the same time, I really want him to have real heroes to look up to in his life, you know what I mean? I am so lucky to have married a wonderful man who I know is my Son’s ultimate hero and man he looks up to and strives to be. I am so grateful to have the Bible and Book of Mormon, to teach my son about heroes that lived long ago, and have their life stories to share with us. They don’t...

This post was written for inclusion in the monthly Homeschool Blogging Carnival hosted by Lisa at The Squishable Baby and Keisha at Unschooling Momma. This month our participants are talking about their favorite homeschool project or experience. There are a few affiliate links scattered throughout this article.      I decided to take a break this week from the home maintenance binder (don’t worry, I’ll post another section on it next week!) to join The Squishable Baby’s Homeschool Blog Carnival. The theme...

Happy third birthday to my little man! Lately my 3 year old has been REALLY into superheroes-specifically Batman. He got his face painted as Batman and ran around the house singing {Nu nu nu nu nu nu nu nu nu nu BATMAN!} For a week! It was Amazing. I love him so! So for his birthday he needed a new hooded towel {his old one got used to help us stop our home from...

  I have a two year old and a one year old. On top of that, I babysit a 10 month old full time. It’s great. I love it. Keeping those kids busy can be a little tough though! I decided to make a quick list of things I can do with them when were bored one summer day. If you click the link under it, you can download it to have for your own.  Click here...

  My sisters and I all share baby clothes. We have tons of tubs of baby clothes that we pass around to whoever happens to have a baby at the time. There is a tub for 0-3 month boys clothes, 3-6 month boys clothes, 6-12 month boys clothes, etc. The same goes for girls (although I think there may be more than one of each size for the girls… why do girls...

I like to turn on music when my kids are having a hard time and have an impromptu dance party. It works, every time. Tears dry up and tantrums go away. It’s like magic. I also want my children...

Wound’t it be awesome if Mother’s got the recognition they deserved, every day? I personally LOVE being a mom. I didn’t realize when I was growing up how much I would like it. I didn’t really play...

  A little while ago, my mother bought my son a pair of Batman pajamas that have a velco cape. My little guy LOVED it. He wanted to wear it all the time. That’s totally fine with me, except that it only velcoed onto the one shirt. Every so often, the thing has got to get washed. I remembered that when I was little, my grandma had made a super...

Every month, on the first Sunday, I dedicate my blog post to a spiritual subject. I feel that my belief in Christ is a fundamental part of my every day life, and you cannot know who I am and what I believe without knowing about my church and it’s teachings. I spend more time on these first Sunday posts than I do on five or six normal posts. I pray about them,...
