I’m so excited to have my new blogging friend, Jeniece, as a guest today, sharing some AWESOME tips for organizing your planner for a large family. Jeniece is a busy work-at-home-mom of 5 busy kids (including twins!), so she knows all about organizing large families! She blogs at On the Go Mommy. Go visit her and say hi!
Traditions are such an important part of life. They give families a sense of identity, help make special days more memorable, reinforce our values, and strengthen family bonds. Traditions also highlight the importance of special occasions, making them more than just another day.
Little Miss K turns 2 on Thursday. It’s so hard to believe she has been a part of our family for 2 years already. My husband and I keep looking at her and then each other like, “Who is this kid and what happened to the infant who was just here?!”
Moms, you get that right? It’s like all of a sudden your baby has become a small person with opinions and ideas and complicated emotions. How is it that the time goes by so quickly??
Getting a new dog? How exciting! I’m sure you’re stoked and have stocked up on all kinds of goodies to spoil your new furry friend!
We adopted a sweet golden retriever named Harvey in January. He is maybe around a year old and bundle of energy + snuggles + destruction! We joke that he is only half retriever because he will only play fetch for about 5 throws, then he just lays down and chews on his toy/stick/disc/whatever we are throwing for him.
I was painfully shy as a kid. I was so shy that when we went to my granny’s house for dinner, I’d hide behind my mom when we got up to the front door. Every. Week. I struggled with making new friends my entire life because I was just so scared to talk to other kids. I would feel paralyzed by the anxiety of it.
As I got a bit older, junior high and high school age, my shyness came across as snobbishness. I was not a snob. I never believed I was better than anyone. If anything, I felt like they were better than me. I wanted desperately to talk to so many of the kids at school, but didn’t know how to find the courage. No one had ever talked to me about it or encouraged me.
