My Meebas

Kids love the newest craze. My daughter is going to be 9 next week. She got a gift card to Toys R Us. First thing she wanted to do was head to the store and get the new toy she saw on T.V. I think she saw the commerical once. But with the DVR she recorded it. 

That is all she wanted. We went to Toys R Us and they only had 2 left. They were all banged up. We headed over to Target. They also had only 2 left. They were in better condition. We got one! She hasn't stopped playing since we picked it up.
 She already wants to get a second one!  She opened this one in 24 hours!!!

Back To School

My kids so do not want to go back to school. They have been home with me all summer. My son especially is having a hard time. He is so attached to me . I feel bad , but not bad enough  to home school him. I told him I would pack a picture of me in his school bag. It is I think especially hard because they are starting a new school. 

I need to have them change schools. We are trying to move into a house and it didn't happen before school started. I promised them they wouldn't have to go back to the school they were in last year. The school had went from a elementary school to a P.S./M.S. School. The kids in the older grades have no manners nor morals. The language in the yard is barbaric

I know life works out the way it does for a reason. I know they are going to enjoy there new school.

Mason's First tooth came out!

My baby is growing up. Last night my husband calls me to tell my that Mason's tooth has come out. My heart broke. I thought I would be home for that. I hate missing out on moments like that.

Mason's first tooth came out!

Funny thing about it is when the tooth first go loose, Mason cried. He told me that he didn't want his tooth to come out. To him it meant he is growing up. He doesn't want to grow up. He tells me he wants to live with me forever. With his eyes welted up with tears. Then he asked " will the tooth fairy bring me a Webkinz?"

Diary Ice Cream Vs. Soy Ice Cream

I love ice cream. Since I have taken dairy out of my diet I feel amazing. I do miss ice cream. Once in a while I will treat myself. I usally regreat having it. I found a great solutuion. Soy ice cream. You'd never know the difference. Purely Decandent is my favorite brand.

I even got my kids hooked on it. They have tons of flavors. It 
cost the same as if you bought a pint of haggen daz. They offer coupons on their site.

Are You Paying Attention To What Your Children Are Seeing


I had a conversation with a little boy the other day. He is 6 years old. His parents and I share a garage together. I haven't seen him in awhile. I asked him how he is doing. Then I told him to tell his parents I said hi. He continued to tell me that is his mom's friend over there with his mom. Then he tells me they do nasty things together. WOW ! I was so taken back by that. I didn't ask for details ,because really I was afraid to know. 

Are You Paying Attention To What Your Children Are Seeing?

For sure these adults are not paying attention to what they exposing this child to. I have a 6 year old as well. I understand he has one eye and one ear on my at all times. Even when I think he might be sleeping or preoccupied . There is still that chance he knows what is going on. 
Are parents forgetting to protect there children from themselves. Sometimes we do things that are fine to adults. There are also lines we don't need to cross with our children. We ask ourselves why are the children of today growing up so quickly ? Reasons like exposing them to adult like behavior at a young age is the answer. Children mimic what they see.

What are you showing your kids?

Mason on NY1

Mason made his debut at the zoo. We try to make Mondays family fun day. This past Monday we ventured off to the Central Park Zoo. Little did we know it was the 2oth birthday. One of our favorite news stations happened to be there. NY1 was taking interviews of the children. Mason seemed to steal the show. As a family we were so excited. We couldn't wait to get home and record it. The best part is we can now share it with the world.
