Family Movie Night...

Parents come together as a family and make it a movie night. What I mean by movie night; I don’t mean take your children out to the movies once a week, that can become very pricey very quickly. Make it a movie night at home, make that be your special time to spend with your children. Pick out a movie that everyone will enjoy from your local movie rental store what ever is easiest for you. It’s really nice when you do this once a week , and try to make it the same time each week. Put a blanket down on the floor right in front of the TV. Have the children help you pop some popcorn and get some drinks, and don’t forget to silence your cellphones before the movie starts. This is a budget friendly thing that you can do as a family.

One thing is for sure your children will always remember family movie night. You want your children to remember those special times that they spent with their parents. So make it special and fun for the whole family.

To all my Awesome Followers... I wanted to share I Just Won 10 Swag Bucks on Check it out, it adds up fast... See you on the other side.:-)


More and More mommies are breastfeeding now a days. If you are an expecting mom to be, and you want to be successful breastfeeding your baby.

I would recommend : That you ask your OBGYN, or if you have already established a pediatrician, ask how long should you breastfeed. Most will say you should exclusively breastfeed your newborn until they are at least six months old.

Keep in mind: The longer you breastfeed your baby the more you will be passing on your protective antibodies. Your antibodies will help to protect your baby from infection caused by the flu.

Breastfeeding is just as rewarding to your baby as it is to you. Did you know breastfeeding can decrease the risk to breast and ovarian cancers. Now keep in mind lower risk does not mean no risk.

Happy Baby, Happy Mommy!

10 Second Time-Out Rule for Parents...

You have no more patience’s. You are really getting upset. You are yelling and screaming at your child(ren). You feel you are about to lose it.

Parent Time-Out - You need a time-out. I know personally being a parent is not easy by any means. You need to go and take a time out and breath. There will be some days you are going to think your child(ren) has turned off their listening ears. Compared to other days; when you feel they are acting like complete angels. There are days when you feel you have done everything you can think of, when you put your child or children on a time-out, you need to also put yourself on a time out. You don’t ever want to feel that you could probably lose it. Go to a quite place in your house, and take some slow deep breathes, count to ten when you are taking those slow deep breathes, and then count backwards. Always try to keep calm, if you are starting to feel yourself really getting upset and the only thing you want to do is scream at your child, because your patience went right out the window (You Need A Break). We all know once you start to scream at your children they will more than likely tune us out or get upset. You really never want to scream at your children. Try to keep calm, and talk to your child. Let them know what they are doing is wrong, and that if they keep showing bad behavior; that you are not going to give them any warning, you will put them on a time out and start to take their privileges away from them. Until they understand that they need to listen to you the first time, not the second, or third time.

Remember to always stay true to what you say to your children. So they know you mean what you say.
