Using Mom Time Wisely So You Have More Time for Yourself

Did you ever have that moment where all of a sudden you notice your kids are occupied with something and you say to yourself “OMG I have a few minutes, what am I going to do with this time???” Then you run around like mad trying to get stuff done. But before you can get anything done your kids are whining for a snack (yet again). This used to happen to me ALL THE TIME! Then I would get frustrated because I would try to get things done that needed my full attention and my kids were interrupting me every 30 seconds. I had to find that balance. Time where I could to concentrate on things or enjoy quiet. And time to get things done where I could be interrupted.

Emery’s Farm & Laurita Winery

One of our favorite Summer Time Day Trips is a visit to Emery’s Blueberry Farm and Laurita Winery in New Egypt. We’ve been going to these places for years and everybody in the family looks forward to the day we go.

Now you might think a winery as a Family Day Trip? But let me tell you, Laurita is one of the most family friendly wineries that we have traveled to.

Education Websites I Love For Pre-K/Early Elementary

Who worries that their kid is watching too much tv?

Or playing too many video games everyday?

So many of us struggle with this, because while it’s okay let them watch tv, play video games, or play on the ipad sometimes, we all know too much is not good.

So then what else can we do at those times that we must get things done, and the kiddos are itching to use technology?!?

Find a great website or app that is reinforcing learning, that they also LOVE!!!

Does Your Child See You As A Reader?

How often do your children see you reading a book?
Do they think that once they’re done with school, they’ll be done with reading because they never see adults in their life reading?

Everyday we have our children read, because we know it will help them to become better readers.
But do they ever see the adults in their life reading for enjoyment?
