My kids are selectively deaf. They love to play with their toys and love to take everything out, but they hate putting the toys back. When I tell them to clean up they take it as; "Let's take out more toys!" or "Ok, mom wants us to go mess up another room now." Kids don't hear the same things we do or they don't want to hear the same things.
Keeping a bedroom, living room or playroom clean and organized is such a horrible and difficult task, right? Wrong! It's actually fairly easy when you strategize and think of some great and creative ways to help your space. I'm not a professional organizer nor is my house clean by any means, but I have come up with a few ways to keep things organized! Especially with kids toys.

Ever since I made the decision to change my eating lifestyle and eat healthier, I've always been looking for new ways to eat. I'm sick of the same old food that you just throw in the microwave and eat; that gets boring after a while. I decided to try these Mini Eggplant Pizzas that I saw somewhere and they ended up being just so delicious!

I read an article today that was titled, Are Poor Parents Poorer at Parenting? Just the title made me a little angry because I don't see how income really makes parents good, bad or needing improvement. Even though I was angry I decided to read the article and to give it a chance; I'm seriously an optimist at times! To be honest, the article was not half bad and did touch on the fact that even middle class and upper class families can use some parenting help. It got me thinking, How many people actually feel this way about low income families?

Alayna started her first day of Kindergarten yesterday and mommy cried. Alayna didn't cry but mommy did! I can't believe my little baby is getting older! It's so hard to think about her already going to school for a full day, but I am grateful! I'll have some time to myself since Olivia is so easy on her own. She amuses herself well! :)
There was just one problem when I dropped her off yesterday -- She's the only one from her AM pre-school class in her Kindergarten class. We were all very upset, but Alayna took it like a trooper. When she got home yesterday she expressed how upset she was. It seemed like they kept all the AM class together except for my Alayna. Her teacher also seemed like she was a tough one and not too compassionate towards the children. To tell you how un-compassionate the teacher is, there was a little girl in her class who had a broken arm. The teacher said to this 5/6 year old, "What did you do, get hit by a truck?" I mean...who says that to a 5/6 year old!
