Raising ungrateful brats – no thanks!

New Year! This is a chance to reflect on what we did great last year, what we hope to do better this year and just give a little THANK YOU to all of the people who made it possible. Take a deep breath, and either say it out loud, in your head or post it on social media, but give a little speech to those who were there for you and appreciate this so called life. Because no matter how hard it may be, there is someone out there who wishes they had your life.

Happy New Year 2018 🥂

I don’t know how tired you are but I am pretty beat. The last few weeks have been a blur. Not only because I was busy shopping and running around but because I had two sick kiddos on my hands. This flu hit my little one pretty hard and we spent the first week of winter break indoors. A true staycation 🤣 and use of our imagination.

One thing our kids do a lot around here is pretend play.  On some days they will both dress up, set up a whole scene in the play room and invite my husband and I to watch their performance/ show. Other days they create their own world of make belief and completely devote their day and energy to imagination. I truly enjoy their creativity.
