Today I am really working hard to publish one of my ebooks that I have been working on. I’ve got a lot to do but I am feeling confident that I will finish by the end of the day. Publishing a book is not as simple as I thought. To be honest I love writing, hate editing, and well yeah I am sure you get it. Billy, my husband, thinks it’s funny because it has taken me this long to even get a book out.
Right now I am just spending time with the kids while an AT&T technician works on our internet. It has not been user friendly at all for over a month which has also caused me a lot of time as well. Hoping it will be back up soon!
To be honest it has been nice to take a break from the digital world. I can’t say my kids agree but it definitely has encouraged them to be more adventurous! It has forced them to use their imagination and has pushed me to get tons done around the house. There is a lesson to come from this too! It is so easy to get caught up with our digital devices that we forget what’s truly important in life. Hope everyone is having an amazing Wednesday! Feel free to comment below as well 🙂
Today I ran across one of the funniest life hacks hat had me on the floor laughing. The image it gave me of when I was a teenager was priceless! To be honest an image of teenagers today going through phone withdrawals is just overbearingly hilarious. The life hack quotes this:
“When punishing your kids, don’t take away their electronics. Just take their charger and watch the fear in their eyes as they use it less and less while the battery slowly dies.”
It was just to pass up to now share!!! As a parent I have learned it is best to have an open mind and a great sense of humor!!!!
Parenting can be a live comedy! Daily I find humor in the little things that arise during our day! Kids have a way about bringing laughter and joy when everything else seems complicated and overwhelming. It is true, when you become a parent you really don’t have a dull moment in your life no more. Always expect the unexpected, especially if you have a toddler at home. They will definitely bring the best out of us parents when they decide to get into mischief. It is a priveledge and joy to watch my kids grow, try things, experience life, and embrace the difficult trials because memories are being made. Enjoy your little ones, take time to notice and compliment the good. Time is not a luxury it is a gift that should be taken with care!
Parenting…there is nothing like it! You will have your fun, crazy, terrible, amazing, and nothing can describe days! I am sure many know exactly what I am talking about to lol. Especially having three boys and one girl I have learned that chaos definitly comes with the territory.
Here are some pictures of my sweet amazing mini me’s!!!!!! Enjoy!
Today has been an interesting day considering that my older kids are hanging out with daddy today! He thought it would be a great day to spend quality time with the older two. I have managed to get the house in somewhat decent shape and have had a lot of downtime today which has been a nice change to my speedy Gonzales pace.
I decided today to give myself a Jamicure, watch the movie HOME for the hundredth time :), and spend one on one quality time with the little ones. It has been such an amazing day so far and a very memorable one at that. I hope all of you are having a wonderful Holiday Weekend as well.
To be honest parents forget that children take in everything that they are exposed to. We don’t filter normally because we don’t think about it, we don’t acknowledge how we act can effect our children’s well-being. Sometimes it takes a reality check to be able to come to terms with the bad habits we have in our lives. Depression, anger, resentment, jealousy, and so many more emotions that you may be feeling are also harmful to your child.
We are an example to our children, we are not here to parade around our accomplishments and push our children aside like trophies. We should be focusing on our kids and their futures not about what benefits us (the parents)! Everywhere you go you will notice that the family dynamic has changed, and it is very sad. Parents are becoming more laxed on the well-being of their child’s safety. It is concerning and children are at high risk for emotional set-backs due to the lack of Parenting that goes on today. I have worked with many families and have dealt with many situations that were heart-wrenching.
Parenting is not easy and for the weak, it is the hardest job you will ever be given. When you become a parent you are taking on a huge responsibility but very rewarding one at that. Here is an acronym that really speaks to me. It is one that I made up and is very relevant to the life and meaning of the term Parent.
It’s these moments that I enjoy the most. Watching my kids grow has become the most rewarding experience and I am loving every minute. Take these little moments and capture them. MAKE MEMORIES while you still can.
