Does The Tooth Fairy Come If You Literally Lose The Tooth?

 

If you have a 6-year old like I do, chances are the tooth fairy makes regular trips to your house.  Where does the he/she get all that money? The tooth fairy leaves on average, $3.70 per tooth. Sounds cheap, but these kids have more than one tooth, ya know?

Finley lost another tooth last night on the way to softball practice, and that led to an unexpected meltdown.  Here's why.

First Day Of School Pics Dominate Facebook

I love looking at all the back-to-school pics on social media this time of year.

One of my sassy, fun (and kid-less) Facebook friends said just now, "Um...Did school start?"  Haha! What makes you say that?!

Yeah...maybe we parents are guilty of overloading Facebook with backpack pics, but we don't have anything else exciting going on. Sideways wink!

It Costs How Much To Raise A Kid?

 

Every so often they come out with a number for how much money it takes to raise a child from age 0 to 18, and that number keeps going up.  Kids are expensive, so brace yourself for this amount.... Especially if you have more than one child.

Finally! The Middle Child Gets All The Attention

 

Oh that poor middle child, always the forgotten and neglected one and rarely the center of attention.  That's my middle child in the pic, and she's not afraid to yell and stomp until she's noticed.  Middle kids do what they gotta do!

The middle child will get all the love next week in Boise!

It's a night just for them, and they'll even be able to get autographs from talented sports stars who also happen to be middle children.

There is a YouTube series called Kids React. The latest video posted shows kids being relieved of their laptops and having to use a typewriter. Comical and yet at the same time makes me feel so old!

Road trips are great, right?  The weather is awesome, you roll down the windows and crank the music, and there is no stress at all.  Yay!  That was how is used to be before kids.  And then those little needs - constant needs - change the dynamic of the car for the rest of our lives.

Can Life Be Simple For Moms? Nope!

So moms, how in the heck do you do it all?

If you're like me your day involves a wild frenzy of finding shoes, brushing hair, wiping syrup off faces, packing snacks, breaking up fights, reading books, finding the time to squeeze in a shower for yourself, and oh yeah...working!  And then we have to find time for relationships and grocery shopping and laundry and getting our eyebrows waxed.  When people ask us how we do it all, our best answer is, "I don't know!"  Somehow it's all set in motion and it just happens and we are along for the ride, doing our best to steer the ship.

Here's some advice that I ran across on simplifying your life as a mom, and also why I think it won't work!

Here’s How To Get The Kids To Do What You Want

 

Sometimes my kids don't listen.  I KNOW!!  It's hard to accept the fact that kids have minds of their own, stubborn streaks, and little pint-sized power assertions that make them tell a mother no. Perhaps you can relate.

But this may help us.
