My Hope For My Daughter

For those that don't know, I have this awesome kid named Alexis, but she goes by Lexi. Not too long ago she turned 11 years old and started middle school. Like most parents, I am proud of my daughter. Of course, she slips up like most kids and has preteen drama but in the end, she is a pretty good kid. She is super laid back, has that awesome dry sense of  humor and is creative. Oh, is she creative! This child of mine can take a little square of clay and turn it into this and can also take a canvas and some paint and turn it into this! She never ceases to amaze me, so as her biggest fan, I want to see her Go Big and succeed with whatever she does. As a way to communicate with her, I wanted to write her a very special blog post titled, 'My … [Read more...]

5 Ways I Use WaterWipes Every Day

This post was sponsored by WaterWipes as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. I've watched kids in my home for over 8 years and have learned a lot. Not only have I learned that no two kids are the same and each one develops differently, I've learned that kid's skin needs to be protected. The kids in my home get messy, like super sticky messy, so we are always washing our hands and face. I noticed that after a while my kid's hands would get rough because we washed them so many times during the day. I knew that this was not good so I knew that I had to find a solution. Luckily, I had a daycare mom introduce me to WaterWipes. They are an all natural baby wipe that … [Read more...]

What Not to Do When You Drop Your Child Off at Daycare

During the work week, I watch kids in my home while their parents go to work, to an appointment, or just need a break. I've been watching kids of all ages for over 8 years and have learned a little bit about kids. One of the biggest challenges during the day with the kids is during parent drop-off and parent pick up. If you have ever worked with  kids, you know that kids are not 'normal' when they are around their parents. They become a different child. In an effort to help anyone dropping a child off at daycare and in an effort to help daycare provider's mornings run a bit smoother I'd like to share with you What Not to Do When You Drop Your Child Off at Daycare.   Every childcare facility is different and each one has their … [Read more...]
