Incentive Charts for Kids

This is something I’ve had the intention of doing for quite some time, but always seemed to put off, because….well, summer got the best of us!  With a 4 year old who is starting to test boundaries and sharpen his negotiating skills (especially at bedtime), it was starting to become more and more necessary to start an incentive system with him, as a way of motivating him to be more consistent with positive behaviors and become more responsible!  I didn’t {Read More}

MIA mama, that’s me!

I’m excited to finally disclose the reason I’ve been MIA over the past two months!  Our tribe will continue to grow….as we are expecting baby #3 in early March!  All of you moms out there know how tiring the 1st trimester of pregnancy can be.  Now, add two VERY ENERGETIC little ones to chase after all day and I’m basically passed out as I eat dinner each night.  Needless to say, the blog has been put by the wayside for a bit while I try {Read More}

Time for School!

IT’S BACK TO SCHOOL TIME… My son started his first day of 4 year old preschool and he was all smiles (as you can see!).  It sure helped having quite a few familiar faces from last year in his classroom.  I started this poster tradition with birthdays and have now continued on with each first day of school.  We shall see how long this tradition will last (crossing fingers I can keep up!)  Because he is STILL train obsessed, we were {Read More}

Nautical Themed Party

So, it’s been a couple weeks since our vacation in Florida and I’m really missing the beach!  Watching my boys play together in the sand, riding on the kayak for their first time, searching for seashells, and splashing in the water, made for some great memories.  All of this fun in the sun got me to thinking.  I should probably post E’s nautical themed first birthday deets from almost a YEAR AGO.  Folks, he is almost two!! This mama is suhhhhlacking!  It has {Read More}
