Crafting with Pie – How to make Puffy Paint T-Shirts

My daughter loves to make things! She is constantly asking me “Mom, what can I make?”   She also has a semi-short attention span and a tendency to become easily frustrated. This means we must find fun, crafty projects that she can make on her own or with minimal help. Which is why we LOVE […]

Daughter’s Fever

I cannot sleep, not yet. My daughter is sick and I hate sleeping while she is ill. Earlier this hot evening I made her comfy on the big couch, gathered her water bottle to hug or rest a flushed cheek on, a washcloth for her brow, freshened with cool water every half hour or so, […]

On Our Dirt Road

A Thousand Words Thursday

July 2004 I want to go back in time for a few moments when I look at our old photos! My now 8-year-old daughter was almost 4 in this photo! I miss the days where getting dirty while playing outside was fun. Now dirt is the enemy, heck she won’t even touch a worm anymore! […]

Silly Kids

Imagine you have 2 children, they are 13 & 8, they like to argue…with each other. You often wonder if you get through to them at all. Say on Valentines Day you go shopping with your mom…for 7 hours….let’s just say you leave the kids home….with your hubby (insert evil laugh here). What if they […]
