5 Tips To Help Get You Through the Day with a Sick Child

5 Tips To Help Get You Through the Day with a Sick Child

I remember when my sons were younger and they weren’t feeling well. It was one of the worse feelings in the world. If your child is ill it can be exhausting taking care of them. They often want all your attention, as that is a comfort to them. When they are very young or just toddling, they cannot always tell you exactly what is wrong, and that can make it even harder to know you are doing the right thing. Getting through the day with a sick child is not an easy task, some times you want to throw in the towel, but don’t, because it either has throw up on it or spilled soup. Seriously though, it’s rough, but here are a few tips that will help get through the day.

2018 Holiday Gift Guide For the Crafter or DIYer

2018 Holiday Gift Guide For the Crafter or DIYer

I dabble a little in some craftiness and a little DIY. Growing up I kinda had no choice with a mom who had the knack for putting together two or three things that you would never think to put together and made them work. If you’ve ever watched any of my live videos over on my Facebook page, you’ll see a few of the videos that I have done in the past and at least one I did a lil’ crafting live. There is not a single type of craft that is not mixed with at least something else. All crafts, no matter what have creativity, personality, and a story. For that, all crafts (even if it’s not your “thing” or style) need to be praised and shared.

2018 Holiday Gift Guide For the Tech & Gamer

2018 Holiday Gift Guide For the Tech & Gamer

My family consists of gamers, techies or geeks. And I LOVE IT! That’s why this Holiday Gift Guide for Techy & Gamers is probably my favorite. My 13yr old is obsessed with FortNite and my Oldest loves the racing games like Grand Theft Auto 5 or Forza.  My husband loves  Final Fantasy Games (he pretty much loves all of them) and my obsession with The Elder Scrolls Series or Assassin’s Creed. Gaming aside, I love tech. ALL things tech! If I could have everything, I would. I’d probably have all of the latest computers, tablets, cell phones, smart devices, etc. My husband always rolls his eyes whenever I talk about swapping out the old out dated thermostats for new smart thermostats.

2018 Holiday Gift Guide For Men

2018 Holiday Gift Guide For Men

Okay Ladies, it’s that time of year to buy our guys something for Christmas. But what do we buy the guy who has just about everything or nothing or worse, doesn’t give us any hints? EVERYTHING! Okay, not really, unless you have those deep pocketbooks that you can. But Seriously, Christmas tends to be another one of those holidays like Valentine’s Day or Sweetest Day (if you live in the Ohio region) that women tend to get spoiled. I tend to spoil my husband because he busts his cute lil’ tushy at work so I can focus on my blog and homeschooling our son. However, I know a lot of guys are next to impossible to buy for. So I have compiled a few great items to help us ladies out.

2018 Holiday Gift Guide For Teen Boys

2018 Holiday Gift Guide For Teen Boys

Being a mom of two teen sons, they are confusing lil’ boogers for holiday gift giving. So, I asked them what the “cool kids” are wanting this year for Christmas, in hopes to help you, folks, out. The kids are on top of what they want/need for Christmas sometimes more than “consumer marketing” so that’s why I asked for their input this year. My youngest tends to be the one that knows the “stuff” that’s popular so I consulted him a little more this year than I have in the past. Kids today are so picky. It’s just crazy! You have the joggers, hoodies, games, etc. Raising two boys, I just don’t get the “Girls are so hard to buy for! They are soo picky!” My boys are freakin’ picky I tell ya! REALLY picky!
