At some point in time there was held a large conference or maybe even a 5 week class on how to be a good mother and home manager. I however, was not in attendance. Whether it was that I was not sent the invitation or that I was distracted by the donut cart outside the door. I was not there. Missing vital information on how to make my job easier and successful. So for the past 5+ years of being a mother I have struggled to figure it out on my own. I can’t help to feel that it doesn’t have to be this hard. I know there are tips, new products and better ways of doing things. This is my quest to find all those tools to make my life and home the best it can be.
I also have so much to share. The gears in my head rarely rest. I am constantly coming up with new things to try. Some ideas work. Some don’t. I will be sharing all of them.
I update 5+ times a week, so check back often.
My four year old daughter is going to Pre-school in about 2 weeks. I wanted to give her wild locks a nice trim at a salon. I usually cut it myself, so this was a bit of a splurge. So we get there and she wont let go of me. She regressed into a baby, she wouldn't talk or cooperate at all. After about 15 minutes of bribing, threatening and almost giving up, we decide she can sit on my lap. It wasn't working well because she had gone limp and was pretending to sleep. I thought all was lost until this cute little hair dresser handed my Wild Child a mirror. She squirted a pile of moose onto it and showed her how to draw pictures with it. Wow!!! What a turn around. She sat by herself and drew pictures until 10 minutes later her hair was cut and we were ready to go. If you are taking a small child for a back to school haircut, be sure to mention this ingenious idea to your stylist.
