School is back in session and I’m being lazy…..

Yes I know it has been quite some time since I have last posted. It seems to be a reoccurrence with me. Hopefully I wont make it a habit. So anyways it has been the usual. You know the usual meaning school shopping, work and so forth. Well now it will be just school and no work… Yes I said that right no work. Unfortunately I had to resign do to some personal issues and because of availability too. But it will be ok, some times things happen.

So school is back in session. That means finally I can have some peace and quiet. Oh wait nope, my adorable 2 year old is here. But still it is some what calmer. My daughter with ADHD/ODD seems to be doing quite good so far. I had a nice talk with her teacher before hand. So that way she isn’t left in the dark. Also so she doesn’t think something god awful lol. My oldest daughter is taking to 2nd grade like a duck to water. I never really have to worry about her. 

What about you all? How are your children handling the change back to school? Did you have a tremendous school supply list you had to get? Please do tell!  

New product reviews coming soon.

It has been a very busy summer. So much to the point that I have not been on here to do a blog post. Hopefully none of my readers will hold to much of a grudge lol. I have a pretty decent product test coming up soon for my kids. It is a play set from the littlest pet shop.

I really enjoy doing these reviews. Plus its free product! If you haven’t already heard of the website go check out http://www.bzzagent.com.  There you fill in basic info about yourself and your kids and do a couple surveys about your buying habits or what kind of hair you have. Then for long you will have campaign invites.

Plus I also do other survey sites that you trade in points to get gift cards. Believe me it pays off. My mission is to rack up enough points to do all my shopping online through amazon for christmas.

New app review!

image

I was given another app to review on my android. It is called “Heroes of the City baby app”. Specifically designed for infants to toddlers. Has several short movies for your child to watch along with fun games. No purchase required!  Everything in the app is free.

I tested the app myself and I found it to be very colorful, engaging and fun. Easy to navigate through it. My 18 month old daughter loved it. Although it was still a little confusing for her, she enjoyed the colors and the sounds. Definitely kept her attention.

Not sure how this day is going to be.

My husband and I finally decided it was time to move “K” into her sisters room. We were a little hesitant, because of “M” and her hyper ness. So far things have been going well up until today. I get up and get my oldest daughter ready for school and leave to take her, only to return with husband at the door looking pretty angry. “M” was jumping up and down on the side of the crib singing with “K” in it.

Just not really sure how this day is going to pan out. Fingers crossed it gets better. On the plus side, we are taking the family to the zoo in a couple weeks.

Interesting day in my house

Normally I like to do a Tuesday Tip post, but I changed my mind. Today has been a pretty decent day. Not one person in my house can say otherwise.
Which is pretty good.

This morning started off with my oldest daughter going to school. Came home to fix breakfast for everyone, then get ready to head back out again. Next stop on the agenda was to Huntersville for a follow up on middle daughter’s sleep study. He said everything was fine other then the fact she has a form of apnea for kids. She snores, which then wakes her up and keeps her from following going into dream step. This is causing her to be sleepy and irritable throughout the day. So know he wants us to see a ear, nose and throat doctor to see if she needs to get her tonsils taken out so she has a more open airway. He feels if she sleeps better that it will keep some of her adhd issues in check.

Rest of the evening was fine other then trying to fix supper in the middle of a war. There was nerf darts zipping past my head and butt constantly. So now its bed time for me seeings that I have to be at work at 4am.

Yikes, it’s a monday

image

I have never been the one for Mondays. Mondays for mom’s is like gearing up for the super bowl or preparing for war. No joke it is that serious. You have all weekend to have fun and be care free but as Sunday arrives, reality sets in. You then realize school starts back up, which means time to organize and get things ready for the week. Especially if your a working mother.

So, my avid readers. Tell me about your Mondays.  What kind of chaos does your day have? The person that has the best Monday story will have it posted on my blog and a link to their blog. Happy writing!!

Banana Bread Stuffed Baked Apples

This looks awesome! !!!

Banana Bread Stuffed Baked Apples

Any time you stuff a something into another thing, you’re going to have a pretty good time. This has been proven time, and time, and timeagain. Also, Puppy Surprise. It’s a weird thing we, the American people, have with things inside of things making both A and B things better as a C thing. It’s like we cannot get enough of everything ever all at once. Case in point? The Turducken. USA! USA! USA!

Banana Bread Stuffed Baked Apples

Patriotism aside/NEVER PUT PATRIOTISM ASIDE, this recipe just makes me super happy. It’s an absolute game-changer with the game being you-having-more-friends. I’ve made it once before but that banana bread wasn’t vegan and honestly, this one is just all around better. Finesse. We can call it finesse. (I mostly just know how to use knives better now.) Some people think vegan baked goods are dry or crumbly or sorta yuck but that’s what makes baking…
