What a wonderful Day ! How many of you can say this ? Im sure all of us moms. Through all the tough times, the chaotic times, and the Grueling long hours of this job. That is the job of being a mom. It is all worth it when you do actually have time to sit back and reflect on your life. You make work for free but the rewards are abundant. Just watching your children having fun and interacting with other siblings. Our children are like little sponges soaking up alls the information that we share with them. So make sure you teach themScreen Shot 2015-05-10 at 6.18.19 PM in a fun way and remember they learn from just watching us. Happy Mothers Day for all those hard working moms out there.

In these days and times we all need to save money every way we can so I found a great website couponing.com.  Were you can print coupons.  Have your kids help you its a great way for them to learn some adding and subtracting while at the same time learn some responsibility.  Its a fun challenge.  Last summer each we we would try and beat our savings from the week before.  My daughter loves to print coupons and help make the list.  Then one time we even made teams two kids against mom.  We had a fun time and have been doing it ever since.  So it is a good way to save money.

So Happy Couponing.

Finding Time for Good Old Fashion Family Fun

Screen Shot 2015-02-18 at 4.43.01 PMThis is a tip for busy working moms.  I have five kids and its very hard when it takes you two hours to drive your kids to school every day.  Then on top of that if you have a full time Job which I do. Then to come home and cook for kids.  So I have been just letting them use electronics too much. How do you find time to keep your kids off video games?  They all seem to do this, well mine do anyway.Screen Shot 2015-02-18 at 4.41.42 PM

Well I made a mandatory FAMILY FUN NIGHT.  This happens every friday for at least two hours.  We play old fashioned games that don’t include electronics, such as Mad Libs, and Charades. We order some take out  and eat in the living room. My Doctor told me with the large amounts of video games that these kids play and they usually play them indoor, that the don’t get the correct amount of vitamin D from the natural sunlight which can cause them to get depressed.  So I am trying to  little by little to think of other things to do.  Its hard to go outside now due to the large amounts of snow on the ground.  When Spring come’s we will have an outdoor agenda on Fridays.  For now this has been working great.
