Disciplining my kids is not fun!

As I reread the title of my post, back to myself – I sigh every time. It’s the absolute, complete, truth! I remember setting out on this parenting journey and wanting to set up our disciplining early so that it would be easier for us later…….. well that was a complete joke! Now, understand upfront, that this post isn’t a complaining one – I’m super proud of us, and our kids are amazing, but I don’t want the illusion bubble of “they’re amazing” to cloud the fact that it has been a continuous journey of slogging it out up until now.

My 10 year old just told me off……..

So it’s been a few weeks of running around and burying myself in getting our routine right again. Let’s just say that it’s not going well, but we are afloat and at least I know my kids are learning something every day. Anyway, let’s get to my title……… yes, this happened…… my 10 year literally served me metaphorical medicine and made me drink a massive lesson. Continue reading “My 10 year old just told me off……..”

It’s ok to fail, right?

It’s amazing that when you put a goal out into the web-is-sphere – that it becomes extremely hard to actually abide by it. I tried to think that it would be possible to write something down everyday and post it onto the internet. I mean, come on! Really? What was I actually thinking? I am NOT that organized and disciplined. I like to “think” I am, but let’s be real – I’m not. Continue reading “It’s ok to fail, right?”

What I want my kids to remember…..

I decided last week that I was going to try and actually write something every day for the next few weeks and see what it does in my life and schedule and to the blog as well. So if I end up writing a whole lot of nonsense, then just know it’s because I just wanted to try something out.

Anyway, since I’m here – I might as well tell you about the last few days and just what’s in my bubble. (which is what this place if for really, right?) Continue reading “What I want my kids to remember…..”

Growing up – Husband, Wife, Us…… Me?

I looked over my blog calendar the other day, and I was gob smacked at how little I have actually been writing. It’s nuts how this kind of thing actually needs to be planned for and allocated time to.

There are so many spheres of my life that I really need to get back into sharing with you guys. I know that I have been talking a lot about the kids and how we go about our everyday lives. But I think that I need to start sharing a little more about Tim and I and what we are going through. Continue reading “Growing up – Husband, Wife, Us…… Me?”

My Afro Hair update….

In our little banner up there – our disclaimer has the “fro’s” part in it. It has been a looooooong time since I mentioned anything about our hair. Guys, this hair thing is hard work and it’s not a joke.I’m trying to understand 4 heads of hair here – while trying to make sure that we don’t break the tiny little bank we have. So with that said – I decided that I would focus in on my hair first before I move back to the kids hair. I did a little blurb on finding liquid gold for my girls hair – but that was ages ago and to be honest – because of Aislyn’s swimming, we haven’t been using it that much. I should actually go back there – because it is so cheap to make. Continue reading “My Afro Hair update….”

Youth Camp for my 10 year old?

As many of you may well know – our oldest is now at an age where she’s old enough to do a lot of different things and her brother and sister are not. There’s a lot of little things that I’m not going to mention because it’s nuts how many there are but, one of them is experiencing Camps. Specifically church or youth camps.
