My kids had their science fair at school this week. They were SO EXCITED to show off their projects.
It is fun to see my kids enjoying learning so much! It was optional for them to take part, I was feeling stressed and it would have been MUCH easier to have not done a project. But after seeing how HAPPY there were, I am sure glad I let them take part in it.
I love my girls long hair… BUT long hair and busy girls also mean LOTS of tangles. SO brushing it out became rather dramatic each morning. They would try to brush it themselves but just could not reach the back, so “mom” became the bad guy each morning and night as we tackled those tangles. They both decided short hair was “cute” and would be easier to manage.
I have to admit it was hard to see it go, but they look cute as can be and it is NICE to no longer be the bad guy with a brush every morning. Bonus they absolutely LOVE it.
Many of you long time readers remember the day this sweet little boy was born… can you believe it has been 4 years! He had his 4th birthday his weekend I need someone to slow time down a little, not ready for my baby to be this old yet :) He informed me that he is not a baby, but it is ok if MOMMY thinks he is baby cause he likes my snuggles (just no kisses on my mouth, cause that is gross…lol).
My 9 year old and my 5 year old BOTH had a loose tooth. It was my 5 year olds very first loose tooth, so she was very excited and has been WAITING to loose a tooth for quite some time now. Big sister has not been able to eat very well the last 48 hours due to the pain of the tooth when she bites… so I decided to give her tooth a little yank. She thought I was “mean” until she saw the tooth in my hand and then was all giggles and happy it was out. That left little sister feeling like she wanted hers out too…. so another yank and little sister now has a toothless grin as well.
They could hardly wait to put their teeth under their pillow, write the tooth fair a note and dream of the tooth fairy coming to visit them as they sleep. Oh to be a child again
Here are some fun books if your kids are starting to get loose teeth too.
I was looking for easy but fun way to announce the gender of our new baby…. I think this tiny pink bow on the ultra sound photo did the trick. My kids knew RIGHT away that it was a girl when they saw the pink bow.
We are SO EXCITED to let you know that a sweet Baby GIRL will be joining our family in June. Matt and I were both wrong we thought it was a boy, but are delighted to welcome another little princess to our family. Everything looks healthy and normal, which is such a blessing.
All the kids are excited, Maveric our 3 year old cried at first he really wanted a boy, but after thinking it over decided that his best friend Bunny (that’s her nick name) is a girl, and he likes her… so he could like a baby sister too. So now all 4 kids are on board and super excited!
My 3 year old was sitting at the counter and I could tell he was really thinking hard. He looks over and me, taps his fingers on the counter and says, “Mom I am trying really hard to grow big, and its not working”.

I am a stay at home mom with four wonderful kids. I have been married for over 13 years to my best friend. He always supports my crazy "thrifty adventures". If you didn't know already - I'm a Heart Mom. Our oldest has a congenital heart defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. He basically has half a heart. We even started a charity called Save Lives Save Money to help other heart families in their time of need. Where couponers give back to help pay for basic needs of families in need.
I was raised on a small dairy farm. I learned very young, the value of hard work and how to be thrifty in all areas of life. Our meals were made from scratch. Only on special occasion would we get name brand cereal, chips, or any other fancy treats. Now that I am a Mom with my own budget, and coupon shop, the basic foods always comes first. I too make most of our meals from scratch recipes and take pride in feeding my family a well balanced healthy diet. You can follow our weekly Menu Plan to see how you can coupon and eat healthy at the same time!
I enjoy seeing how far I can make our budget stretch, and when I take the time to match sales with coupons I am able to get all those "fun & fancy" items that would other wise be out of my budget. From our Coupon Database, to our page to print coupons, our Couponing 101, our Freebies 101 - we like to call it a Thrifty Living Lifestyle. We post my weekly budget review so you can see exactly how far you can stretch a budget. Being thrifty has always been a way of life for me. For more info see A Thrifty Mom in the Media.
