I love how as parents we obsess over what milestones our children should be reaching. I say we should sit back and have a laugh over the ones that they should NOT be reaching!
Walking- sure it's cute, until you look like a crazy woman trying to catch your kid in public, ps they are even faster when you're holding a coat in your hands!
Talking- aww how sweet, wait what did you just repeat to the landlord about that hole in the curtain? Oh, you told her you made it bigger with your superman muscles! Fan-freaking-tastic.
Eating- excited that your wee one just finished their first jar of peas? Cherish it. Unless you plan to top each meal with whipped cream (don't judge me!) mealtime will never go down this smoothly. EVER! Oh but if it does, no mother out there wants to hear about it. Trust me, I've told many moms about my good eater (just one out of 3, but I'll take it) and I always get the half smile I wanna slap a chick nod! Always. Hm grounds for my next post? Yes! All mothers can use advice about how to avoid "The Look"
I can post from my phone! You know what this means right?! I can fill you in on every whole hearted detail of my lamely chaotic days @insert menacing laugh here@ just what you've always wanted right? I may just rename my blog from "Loves journey" to "The journey of a crazy mom with three kids." argh the stinking shift key doesn't work here anymore...no worries shift key...youre not needed here. yes the no caps is driving me mad. and i cant capitalize mad or use exclamation points. ok. its driving me nuts. shift key come baaaack..
This is the first year I will be back to school shopping! I am also a bargain hunter! Where do I find all of our back to school deals? Read on.
My first stop: Once Upon a Child. I find the best deals at our local OUAC consignment shop! There are tons of different brands so it's like shopping at 100's of different stores all in one place, plus the prices are great!
Next stop: Online! Here are a few of my favorites and tricks to finding the best prices at each of them. Zulily: Sign up and check out all of their amazing deals and then invite your friends to do the same. You get a bonus if they order and they get great discounts. It's a win-win! I almost always find the best deals on shoes here! Amazon: My trick to finding the best deals- type what you are looking for in the search box. Choose a department. Then at the top right hand of the page you have the option to search Price: Low to High. Now you can find which seller has the lowest price for what you want! E-bay: No account? It's pretty easy and quick to sign-up. I find the best deals here the same way that I do using Amazon. Put what you want in the search box. I am often too impatient for auctions so I click show only Buy It Now listings and then choose price low to high, finding me the best price again! Facebook: Yep that's right. Your kids favorite clothing brand probably has a Facebook group that has other mama's selling their kids used clothing at big discounts. You will need a paypal account to pay. Just do a general search in Facebook and see what pops up! Other great deal websites to check out! HAUTELOOK
I am a stay at home mommy trying to juggle being Married, finishing college, and raising three healthy happy little blessings! Levi, 4 Kingston, 2 and Malia, 1. I strum a guitar and dance a silly jig. Until I notice someone is looking! My family is my world and the universe sets me in motion. When it comes to parenting we place ourselves in our own kind of category...trying to live life as free and "green" as possible...I love learning more and more about it all!
