I have to say, as the years go by in one’s life they can lose a sense of their spirit in life… why exactly? who knows… maybe it’s seeing too much and knowing too much of the worlds problems!

Throughout the years you may remarry again, and great for you, AND your kids! There’s something so special about a bond between a man and a woman that even the kids see.

“Okay” they all respond.
Family Meeting Time!
Why are family meetings so important? Well, there are quite a few reasons… How do you expect to really get along with the people you live with if you don’t truly know what they’re feeling and going through? How do you expect to be a strong team with little communication, and no reminders of house rules that may be slipping into the crack and well, just not being followed? Or how do you expect to be there for a family member going through a rough day/week/month, if there’s no time to hangout as a family and discuss everyones life frequently. [Read more…]

Not only is it adorable, but is adds a sentimental art piece to any bare wall in your home… And since you are the one creating it, you can choose which picture (from one of your many family photos) to use, what size you’d like it to be, and what colors you’d like to use too, ‘you are in control!’ [Read more…]
As parents we know it can be a challenge to get our young ones to pick up the pace in the morning… They get up slower than a sloth only to go directly to the couch (even when the TV is off!). I understand wanting to plop down a few minutes before the morning routine starts, but how do we get the kids to get a move on after their few minutes of relaxation? The last thing parents want is for their kids to miss the bus and be late to school! [Read more…]
