My Friday Confessions

I would like to say, I can't believe I have never linked up with this before. I can't figure out why I haven't. I guess there is no better time to start than now, right? So let's begin.....

I have been sitting here tonight, eating an entire box of cookies. Yes, all my healthy eating has gone out the window lately and it sucks.

Shower? What's That?


I have to say, I give so much kuddos to those mamas that are able to take a shower every single day, put on all their makeup, wear clothes that don't include fuzzy bottoms with penguins on them, and can do all the errands and have a spotless house all by 5pm. Wow! I would love to be that. But I'm not. But I want to be that type of mom one day LOL

The Bad Hair Day Art Project For Kids


Today was not one of our "well thought out and planned" school days. Today we just took a bit of a break and did only a few subjects. One of them was art. Usually, I have everything planned out the night before but today was just not one of those days.

While looking through my usual art curriculum, I didn't have time to set up and plan for it to be done in a timely manner so I did the next best thing. Improvise! I grabbed my Classroom Art Pinterest board as fast as my fingers could type, and clicked on a pin I have saved for a day just like today!

My daughter agreed that she wanted to do "The Bad Hair Day" project. The original idea came from Project Art-A-Day. This was great because for the past two weeks, we have been studying and learning about all the different kind of lines you find in art. This project screams line, shape, color, imagination, organic, line weights, etc....perfect for my eight year old.

The Sibling Age Gap War : Part 2

Back in April {wow, was it really that long ago?}, I had started a two part series blog post called "The Sibling Age Gap War". Part one was all about children who are farther apart in age and some of the comments I have dealt with having children six years apart. I know that isn't as big of an age gap as some people have, but for me, it caused a lot of rude remarks in the beginning.

But now, I am the victim on the other side of it having children close in age as well. This one goes over worse with people than the six year age gap. I get a lot more comments and remarks over my two youngest children.
