We’re on track for our first Essential Oils webinar Tuesday, March 25, at 6:30p CST. Interested in joining me? Register here. And, if you can’t make it but are still interested, register. We will rebroadcast and those who register will hear about it first!
Our family moves next week. I am swimming in a sea of cardboard, packing tape, and sheer chaos. Mark my words: I am never doing this again. I will likely be completely MIA next week. Don’t be offended. I’ll return and I’m certain I’ll return with stories
Any moms with small children packed and moved their house? (Lots of exhausted hands in the air, I see.) The worst part, I think, is the fact that I’m packing things and then realizing I need them. Toy runs out of batteries. Where are the batteries? Packed. Off to Target. Toothpaste runs out. Where is the extra toothpaste? Packed. Off to Campbell’s. Inspector runs out of ink writing up a report. Where are the extra pens? Packed. “Sorry, dude, can’t help you….” I keep repeating over and over again: “this will be over soon… this will be over soon… this will be over soon.”
Are any of you notecard writers? Who doesn’t love a cute notecard? Check out Justin’s cousin’s new etsy shop. Her cards are adorable and highly hilarious! Plus, she hand made ALL of the flowers for their wedding from book pages and sells paper flower bouquets. The girl is a paper goddess… you have to check her out!
Finn met all the super heros at the Science Center. He also was insanely bashful and didn’t say a word! Can’t you tell from his face?!?! Pure shock!
Finn taught Evie how to gargle water over the weekend. They think this is hilarious. I, however, am on the fence. Second kids just learn all the tricks!
A friend’s mom lost her battle to cancer last week. I wasn’t able to make the funeral due to the icy roads over the weekend, but my heart was fully with them. Right after I heard the news I read an article about how a highly processed food company was “supporting cancer research,” and I literally wanted to throw my computer. Cancer just flat out sucks, as do the companies who have contributed to the declining health of this country. Does it make you angry, too?
Curious about essential oils? I will be hosting a free essential oils webinar Tuesday, March 25, at 6:30p Central. More details will be coming soon, but SAVE THE DATE now. Please share any questions you’d like to make sure are covered.
So many of you shared fantastic feedback from the posts last week about Evie’s ‘roid rage. Thanks for the grace! Just to reassure you, Evie’s doing just fine. She also made her peace with Target after finding some really soft Valentine’s pillows. ($8 I never wanted to spend…)
Justin was out of town last week which meant I had to clear the Blizzard 2014 driveway. I didn’t have time to get detailed instructions on the snow blower, so I had to do this the old fashioned way. I wish there would have been pictures. (No, wait, I don’t.) The snow was so freaking heavy that I had to scoop a line down the middle and tackle it in parts. Tragic.
The weather was so terrible, in fact, that Justin had to jump in a car and drive to Nashville when every possible flight option was cancelled. Augh. I can’t imagine what could be worse. I’ve never been a fan of road trips. You?
Lately Finn finds it really amusing to wear goggles everywhere. In the tub, brushing his teeth, eating lunch. I think we named him appropriately.
I’ve been working on a free lance project specific to healthy kids snacks. The snacks need to be sugar-free and soy-free. I have a handful, but I’m curious….
What are your favorite healthy snack ideas? For you or your kids?
The world encourages a certain way of life for our kids. Lazy bodies, chemically laden nutrition, and poor manners. I'm a mom on a mission to teach my kids more. This is my journey in raising happy, healthy, organically-grown kids. Read more...
