5 Unique Ways to get Kids to do Chores + Printables

How many of us mom's struggle to get our kids to do chores?  I've tried so many things and I've concluded that kids actually like structure, which includes chores.  So, I've started to give them a simple schedule of chores to do. It's hard with two and I definitely had fears of parenting two.  But every parent makes mistakes. Sibling rivalry is ramped in our house, so, I put a list of chores in between their bedrooms to remind them and myself.  I don't want to hear them argue about who's doing or not doing what chore. But all children are different and respond to different methods of teaching, especially with chores. So, I've picked out various methods to get them to do chores.  I tried money.  …

5 Things to do in Heber Overgaard

  Thank you to Bison Ranch for our complimentary stay.  All opinions are my own. I grew up in Arizona but had never heard of Heber Overgaard.  Now that I have moved back, there is so much I want to explore.  I've been back to Sedona and checked out some local places.  I get up to Prescott often which has an elevation of 5367 feet, but  Heber Overgaard has an elevation of 6,627 feet, that means 40 degrees in May! There is so much to do in Heber Overgaard and you don't have to go far.

5 Easy DIY Father's Day Gifts

Father's Day is coming up and again, we are wondering what kind of gift daddy would like this year.  Daddy already has everything he needs. Father's Day gifts aren't easy to figure out for us.  It's even harder when Daddy's Birthday just passed. This is a tough one.  He really does have everything he needs.  And there's only so many work out clothes and barbecue items he can acquire.  With Mother's Day, the kids love making crafts as gifts for me.  I love receiving them too! I will treasure them for years to come. So, what about making crafts for …

I also received product to facilitate this article. Who doesn't like brownies?

5 Inspirational Quotes for Mothers

Us mothers have a full, rich, chaotic, funny, silly, stressful, interesting, tiring life.  Being a mother is the best blessing I have ever had.  I never really wanted to be a mother. I was a Mother to Three Fur Babies. But after I put my dog down and turned 39 years-old I felt something missing in my life.  I wasn't ready for another dog.  I wasn't even ready for children but I knew that at 39, if it was going to happen, now was the time to make it  happen.  Although I was told that I probably would not get pregnant for other reasons, including my age, I was able to get pregnant within 6 months.  Unfortunately, I had a miscarriage.  Within another six months I got …

POKÉMON Detective Pikachu is in Theaters Today!

We got to see the premier of POKÉMON Detective Pikachu on Tuesday and it was worth the wait.  My sons have been talking about it for months. I honestly know nothing about POKÉMON except that I find the trading cards in my couch and under my bed or stashed in secret hiding places.  The boys are crazy for POKÉMON.  But I pretty much went into the movie blind. Detective Pikachu (RYAN REYNOLDS) turned out to be my favorite character.  I loved it! Detective Pikachu kept me on my toes and the boys were on the edge of their seat during the whole movie. It was suspenseful and full of comedy adventure. Ryan Reynolds stars in the first-ever live-action Pokémon adventure as Pikachu, the iconic face of the global …
