Summer is nearing the halfway point and the kids are starting to miss the routine of the school year. We have been keeping busy outside because lets face it here in Canada our outdoor season isn’t that long (unless you enjoy being outside in the cold which I do not) but this summer has been a bit disappointing and as of lately we have had more gloomy rain days than I would like to see so keeping the kids entertained and happy is getting challenging. Toys is always a touchy subject with people some things kids should have lots some believe in minimal toys wherever you stand I’m not here to judge. In our home we go through our toys every 4-6 months and pack up a bag or two to sell or donate to make room for new ones. When you have 3 kids that means 3 birthdays plus lots at Christmas so its great to recycle them and make room for new things. Recently Num Noms sent my daughter a little package with some fun new things to try out and she was so excited. I’ll be honest I knew nothing about these products so I was a bit shocked when she knew what they were when she opened the box. (guess Ive been living under a rock).  In the package was 3 Num Noms Lights Mystery Pack which she graciously shared one each with her brother and sister. (you can see in the one photo her little sister trying to steal one already). These super cute little Nums fit on top of the scented Noms which light up in two colours. The second item was the Num Noms Lights Freezie Pop maker and let me tell you this is super fun “toy” and perfect for the summer. It comes with 3 (which is perfect since we have 3 little people in our home) Num freeze pop moods and 3 flavour packets. Such a super cute and way to have a freezie and even more fun to use at night when it lights up! The last gift she received was the Num Noms Surprise in a Jar! I’ll be honest this looked like a stuffy in a jar and I thought – great just what she needs another stuffy (I can’t stand stuffy’s sorry) but even though it is a cute little plush stuffy it is scented and it smells amazing like real cotton candy!! There are different characters to collect and the cute jar the come in can than be reused as a piggy bank or storage for something. Thank you so much to Num Noms for these super sweet gifts you made my daughter very happy and she has been enjoying playing with all the fun things for days!

  • Sometimes being an adult you gotta do scary things like getting a bunch of bloodwork and other tests done in order to get answers that are needed but like I shared earlier this week it’s all about your mindset. Yes I was sweating and shaking with nerves wishing I didn’t have to do it but I also was thankful that I have a dr who cares and wants answers, thankful for that these tests are available to me and especially thankful for a gentle and kind nurse who made it easier for me.
  • Woke up to the most beautiful white snow and was immediately thankful it was snow and not the rain they are calling for - thankful that the kiddies have snow to play in (which makes them so happy) and thankful that we have different seasons to experience. It’s amazing how a grateful heart changes your out look on things. There is a lot I could chose to complain about today but where I put my thoughts is my choice and will definitely effects my  entire day! Look for the positives in your day focus on those and don’t give negative thoughts a place in your heart and mind!
  • Mama, You were given these children, you! No one else. 
You were given these children because you are who they need.
You have the soul to love them even on their hard days.
You have the motivation and love to give these children everything they need.
You have the heart to wake up every morning and do it all over again, 
Even when you are exhausted. You have the smile that they crave and the touch to make everything okay. You are their sunshine and their comfort. You are theirs and they are yours! On the days you are questioning yourself, remember this! You’ve got this!
  • If you missed it we have a family update up on the blog!
  • After 13 days together this guys Christmas holidays came to an end and I’m not the only one sad about it... little people keep asking “how many more minutes till daddy gets home?” Thankful for how hard he works but safe to say @tspinksy your people miss you!
  • 2018 you were the year of crazy adventure from moving to a new city, saying yes to another foster baby, a new school, new relationships - A year of change and challenge but we are ending the year full of excitement for 2019 and thankful for all that 2018 taught us!
