When you’re a parent to multiples especially when they are close in age dividing your time and attention equally for all the children is hard! Lately we have been finding that my son (who is the only boy and the middle child) needs just that little extra bit of attention or else he starts trying to get it the wrong way so my husband and I have been trying to get creative in ways to give him that one on one attention. My oldest gets a lot of attention naturally and she also is involved in a lot of extra circular actives that appear to be “special treatment” and he just hasn’t found “his thing” yet. Naturally our youngest being the baby and definitely being a “mommy’s girl” she doesn’t lack in getting attention so how to give our little man the attention and one on one time became the question?

 

 

 

Well thankfully Little Tikes to the rescue – they sent us these super fun Waffle Blocks to try out and it was the perfect opportunity for my husband to spend some one on one time with our little man. He was so excited to get his own package in the mail that he got to open and when he saw what it was he was dying to get the box opened and start building. Of course after looking at the book of all the different plans for what you can build and than looking at all the pieces he quickly handed daddy the plan book and pointed to the plans he wanted daddy to help build. They had so much fun building their castle and the blocks are being used daily and have provided hours of quiet entertainment for our family which is a win in this moms book! They are simple to use and click together even my youngest can participate and the book of plans is super simple and easy for even the kids to follow the directions. We have always loved Little Tikes products our house is full of them and these Waffle Blocks are another win in our books! and for all you mamas thinking what a mess to store all the pieces – well they thought of that too and have included a large mesh bag with zipper that fits all the pieces for easy clean up and making it easy for the kids to access themselves when they want to play with it!

 

 

Thanks to Little Tikes for the products but as always the opinion and review is my own!

  • You my girl are going to do great things - you already are! This girl never ceases to amaze me and make me proud to be her mama! Her teacher asked to speak to us yesterday - we had no idea why -  her teacher started to share with us  about how kind Gray is and how proud she is of Gray. There is a student in their class that has special needs and Gray has taken such good care of of this little boy since the beginning of the year - she plays with him at recess and make sure he is always included. Her teacher was so impressed by how kind and loving Gray is and of course I wasn’t surprised but The tears did fall as I looked at my girl beaming with  pride. You see this sweet girl has an ability to see people for who they are on the inside. She has been talking about this little boy for the past month and a half when she shares about her day and I had no idea he had special needs or that he was any different than she was cause she doesn’t see him that way she sees him as an equal. How different this world would be if we all treated each other as equal and shared love and kindness with each other!
  • Mirror, mirror on the wall...
It doesn’t matter if I’m short or tall...
If I have skinny legs or my hips are wide...
It only matters who I am inside...
Blue eyes, brown eyes, black or green...
What makes me most beautiful can not be seen...
When you look at me, don’t judge me by my parts...
The most beautiful about me is my heart  #myhomesense
  • Happy Thanksgiving! I hope however you’ve celebrated whether today or this weekend you spent it verbalizing to the ones you love how thankful you are for them! It would be silly of me to try and tag the ones I’m thankful for but I truly feel blessed and I hope those of you know who you are!
  • Fear: feeling induced by perceived danger, a response to a specific stimulus occurring in the present, or in anticipation or expectation of a future. Fear of heartbreak? Fear of the diagnosis? Fear of abandonment? Fear of judgment? Fear of peoples perception of you? Fear of your bank account number? Fear is everywhere and I for one struggle with it! I find music to be a powerful tool in my life and these lyrics have been repeatedly playing over in my head this past week- I wake up singing them I sing them all day long and yet they aren’t just lyrics they are a declaration of truth that I am holding onto “There is no fear and no shame
Your love won't rise above
Every failure sealed within Your grave
For love has overcome”
  • Canadian Thanksgiving is days away and as much as this dreary rain would love to drag me down I can’t help but feel so grateful for so many things in my life! I have started keeping a running list of things throughout my day that I am thankful for like not just the obvious big things but the little ones too like a hot cup of coffee and a warm fuzzy blanket - do you know what that does for my thought process when I focus on all I do have to be thankful for!! What are you thankful for today?
  • Kissing another weekend goodbye but it was a good one! Anyone else wondering  where September went and how is it October tomorrow already!? Exciting things are happening in October so I’m not complaining but I feel like I blinked and September was over!
