Teach My Giveaway

July 2, 2015 By · No Comments

I wanted to let you guys/gals have a chance at winning this wonderful giveaway. Now I’m not getting paid for it, nor have I been sent the product. This is helping another blogger out and you getting to see it. To be 100% honest I’m a bit bias on this giveaway because about a month ago I found the “Teach My Baby” educational box/kit inside Walmart and decided I had to purchase it. If anyone knows me, you know I love education and love giving my kids a push towards it. My 2 yr old LOVES this box, he calls it his “Education box” but in his words which I find cute. This yellow kit carries all the pieces neatly inside so it isn’t a big mess. The child will love reading the books, putting the puzzles together, etc. He loved that first one, guess it is time to work on getting the other two. They only had the one at Walmart. So make sure to sign up for the Teach My Giveaway.Teach My Logo With Tag

Bursting with Energy

June 26, 2015 By · 1 Comment


Besides the fact I have been watching my oldest pack and repack his bags which means sometimes I begin to get that knot that grows ever so slightly when you know your bird is about to leave the nest. Yes, I said bird, but ya’ll know what I mean. Every time I see him pack his bag I get a sadness but a happiness that grows over me. See it isn’t like I’m just releasing him to a world unknown, in fact he will be leaving California with his dad and moving in with him until he has enough to move out on his own …. if he chooses to do so.

Walmart & Pampers have Teamed up to Support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals

June 26, 2015 By · 57 Comments

Disclosure: The Walmart gift cards and information have been provided by P&G.

Walmart and Pampers have teamed up to help get the word out for Children’s Hospitals. While I do not have a child that has cancer we did have our scare a few years back when BalletGirl had to get her birthmark tested for cancer. Thankfully it came back beniegn but didn’t mean we were out of the woods, in fact in the next year we have to get it tested again. I totally support childhood cancer and finding a cure for it, I have a soft spot in my heart for the organizations that will make children comfortable and happy during their time in the hospital. I can’t stand to see kids scared or in pain. I don’t think very many of us can, especially if we know the child.


During the month of June, Walmart and Pampers are teaming together to donate $200,000 to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Congratulations Graduate!

A little over 2 weeks ago this little baby grew up, graduated and became a young man. I remember just about that whole pregnancy with him, how doctors weren’t even sure if he’d make it to term. He shocked them all, even came a bit early and has always tried doing things before his time. I look back to all the times when it was just him and I, ,before we had a clue he’d have 4 more siblings. We were by ourselves for a little over 1.5 years when his dad was overseas. I think back to the time when I use to ride with him on the seat of my bicycle so he could go to his swimming lessons and a playdate or two. The Easter Egg where he proudly showed me the little gold egg he’d found, or that stolen first kiss in preschool to his friend Makayla.


Through the years I have loved watching him grow, seeing glimpses of who he’d be in the future. From the very first family date to him going out on his own. When we moved out here he got a part-time job at our local church, he’d show me he could plan his money well. Today I’m getting ready to say “see ya later” in a little more than a week. I am so very proud of him and know he will do great things in the future. I will miss him when he moves to Indiana and enters the college/adult life, even right now he’s currently applying for jobs online for out there. He’s a smart young man with a great head on his shoulders and a wonderful heart. I look forward to seeing the next stage of his life. I will miss him as he is my son, my first born but my friend too. Not many agree that parents should be friends with their kids but I tell you, I value that friendship so much. I know in the future he will be able to confide in me when he needs to do so. Here’s a few photos from graduation that I wanted to share with you all.


Just to show you the personality of my son, he had a Superman t-shirt on under his graduation gown, upon going up he ripped it open to do the Superman Pose. I loved it! Couldn’t get the photo but had a few to share anyways.



Congratulations AntonioMichael, aka SoccerBoy!
