I really enjoyed reading all your thoughts on what we should and shouldn’t say to other parents about how they raise their kids. I agree with most of you, and bottom line, I think the most important thing to remember is that how WE parent might not be how someone else chooses to parent. And, that’s okay. There is not a one-way-be-all way to parenting. Obviously. You all know this. I will argue with you that there is a one-way-be-all to safety though. Not going to step up on my soap box right now. Heh. 🙂
My mother-in-law got me flowers! I love fresh flowers. I always joke that if I were ever to have extra money (you know, like too much in the bank and I didn’t know what to do with it– right.) then I would buy fresh flowers every week. I just think they make a home so warm and welcoming! Not to mention beautiful!
This afternoon, after the kiddos napped, we went to Tar-jay. Have you seen the $1 section? It is rockin’ with back to school stuff and crafts! I picked up a couple random objects, plus these cute little flashcard type things. I’m not really sure what to do with them — ideas? There was 20 in the package, each is double sided with an animal. Pretty cute!
I wish I were more creative. There are so many things in the dollar section that look awesome, but I don’t know what to do with them!
I looked at the toy clearance section as well. Everything right now is at 30% off the original prices. I think I’ll wait till they hit 50% off + before I consider buying something to save for Christmas. Does your Target have a good toy clearance section? This seems to be the time of year it starts. Ours is okay- just an aisle or so of stuff.
Leftover spaghetti, peas, black beans and sweet potato fries.
Please be proud of me that I bought Lucas plastic child friendly plates.
Thank you Target for being my BFF.
Man this kid is a messy eater.
My kids and I generally eat the same thing for dinner. So, just imagine I ate whatever they ate. If anything it was probably not as healthy and I didn’t eat my peas or something.
I tell my children I love vegetables, but the truth is, I really am not a fan.
- Do you love fresh flowers? How often do you have some in your house?
- Does your Target have a good toy clearance section this time of year? Are you good about buying things now when they’re on sale and saving them for Christmas or birthdays?
- Any genius ideas for those animal cards??
