I attended orientation for Kindergarten in the last week. KINDERGARTEN! Like didn't I JUST have her? Where does the time go? I want it back!

I can not believe how fast this time has gone. I usually feel like there aren't enough hours in a day to get done everything I need to do. We have to get something fun in this summer!

So my general feeling at this orientation was extreme sadness. Extreme! Why can't she just stay 3 and potty trained and not needing me to pay for daycare forever? I don't want that. LOL!

In the midst of all of this, I recognize how extremely blessed we have been. I just can't believe how fast the time flies.

She is already talking about what she wants her 5th birthday theme to be. It's a toss up between Disney Descendants 2 and a Unicorn theme. I'm not even sure we will go the party route this year. But I say that every year and it always turns into a party. I want to do something else that she will remember and correlate with her 5th birthday.

This transition is going to be tough for me but I think she will make friends so fast that she will be fine. She's already told me she doesn't want to ride the school bus because that's too scary. And that bus comes at 6:30am! We will have to make a lot of changes, but off to big school she goes! At least I'll get a pay raise from the daycare prices!

She is such a smart, sassy and loving girl. I hope she never changes!

How have you dealt with your children going into elementary school? What will help with my anxiety?

Love, Hugs and Kisses,

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks! Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash! I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one. Here are what this product c

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh. She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes... After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard! She really enjoys Dial W

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities. If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome. Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you s
