My Little Girl got her First Job and why I’m happy about it!

first job

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. They grow up in the blink of an eye, so may sure you are keeping them open with toothpicks or something. Now on a more serious note BalletGirl turned 16 this past summer and the very next day went out an applied every where we drove to and went online and applied to all the places she could think were local. After a few interviews over the phone and one in person she kept getting turned out. But it helped to teach her what she did wrong or could say better. You guys….she got the JOB! She got her first job!

$5 Pirate Costume Inspired By Swan Princess: Princess Tomorrow, Pirate Today

September 6, 2016 By · 3 Comments

Sony Home Video provided me with the Swan Princess: Princess Tomorrow, Pirate Today DVD, however I purchased the pirate costume materials. The opinions in this post are my own.


Swan Princess: Princess Tomorrow, Pirate Today hits store shelves today, so don’t forget to grab your copy.  Nicoli watched Swan Princess: Princess Tomorrow, Pirate Today and of course it had lots of fun scenes but for him it is always the PIRATES. That seemed to be the one part he totally focused on. He loves dressing as a Pirate, jumping into his clear bin (his ship) and pushing play. Today I’m going to tell you how we made him a $5 Pirate Costume thanks to Dollar Tree.

About the film
Storks deliver babies…or at least they used to. Now they deliver packages for a global internet retail giant. Junior, the company’s top delivery stork, is about to be promoted when he accidentally activates the Baby Making Machine, producing an adorable and wholly unauthorized baby girl. Desperate to deliver this bundle of trouble before the boss gets wise, Junior and his friend Tulip, the only human on Stork Mountain, race to make their first-ever baby drop – in a wild and revealing journey that could make more than one family whole and restore the storks’ true mission in the world.

Storks trailer 3:

I don’t know about you but I definitely want to see this. The whole thing looks adorable. I mean who doesn’t want to see a baby? Come on, an orphaned child finds a lost baby and is desperate to help her find the family she belongs to in the hopes she will find her own one day. It’s a tear-jerker!  No seriously, it looks like this is going to be a laugh out loud type of movie and I can’t wait to see this with the family.  Course doing this will mean risking her own job and the job of the other storks who no longer deliver babies.

Mom, You Make Us Eat Poop?

August 29, 2016 By · 1 Comment

Sometimes it is nice to look back into the past and see the memories. I love that Facebook does this and now I’m going to touch on it a bit. Before you think it no I never fed my kids poop. I love how kids say the strangest things.


Yesterday BabyGirl came up with the strangest thought:

“Mom, why do we put cow poop on our plants?”

Yes, she overheard us talk about manure and asked what it was, from there she realized manure was cow poop. Gross.

“Umm, because it helps stuff grow.” Thinking she’d drop it now I went back to my research.

“Ewwwww, that means my tomatoes come from poop?”

Looking a bit confused, “No, honey. Tomatoes come from seeds.”

“But mom you put poop over my seeds! You make me eat poop!”

Yeah and just how do I clear this one up? I did try telling her it doesn’t grow in it because it comes out of it and is formed through the leaves. Now she says she’ll never eat potatoes because those don’t come out, they stay in it.
