Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked

The boys and I recently went to see “Alvin and the Chipmunks:Chipwrecked.” It was good, but not great. Kid movies that are great for me, are the ones who hold my youngest son’s attention. Midway through the movie, he started to complain and want to walk through the aisles. It starts out with a trip [...]

Andrew Turns Six

I haven’t had the opportunity to write in a while. Andrew turned six and with three different families wanting to celebrate, it has been hectic. First I had to get over the fact that my first born son was turning six. I still have a lump in my throat talking about it. It’s hard to [...]

Andrew Catches a Fish

Well, my son finally caught a fish at San Gabriel Park in Georgetown, Texas. We have been fishing a lot with the weather being so nice. My son, Andrew gets pretty disappointed that he doesn’t catch anything. We finally had some luck at San Gabriel Park. We pulled in two fish. They weren’t keepers, but the excitement [...]

Pump It Up

This morning I had the opportunity to take my youngest son Collin to Pump It Up in Round Rock, Texas. It’s a place that has inflatables. I always thought this was a place that only parties were held, but I was wrong. They have a time frame that has open play time. The time frame [...]

Dave & Buster’s

How to Get Gum Out of Kid’s Hair

I thought it wouldn’t happen, but it did. My son got gum in his hair. I immediately thought about the whole “ice” trick. Before I tried it, I searched the web to see what I could find out first. There were solutions like peanut butter, baby oil, and vegetable oil. I didn’t have baby oil [...]

Free Kids Workshop at Home Depot

It was a great Saturday. I felt like a productive mom today. I took the boys to the kids workshop at Home Depot (in which I will go into detail later), we went and ate at Chick-fil-a, went to the park, visited my mom, and ended the day playing with the neighborhood kids. It was [...]

Washing Hands

I’m not sure how this came to be, but my three year old son is refusing to wash his hands. I am having to monitor his hand washing. This has been going on a month now. I really thought it would pass, but now I’m starting to look for guidance. He tells me he doesn’t [...]

Day out with Thomas

The event “Day out with Thomas” was held in Rusk, Texas over the weekend and we missed out. Our three year old son is a big Thomas fan. We went to the event held in Burnet, Texas on October 9th, but would have loved to have gone to Rusk. Our family has gone to the [...]
