There's always a lesson.

Do you know why I love Children's books so much?
There is always a lesson.

For the last several years I've had this dream. My dream to write an autobiography about my life as a camp kid. I've drafted it out  and played around with so many ideas. The one thing that I always go back to is a children's book. Why? - I already told you. I LOVE children's books. If I were to actually write a book about growing up at camp - i'd want to make sure there were plenty of lessons. 

Although it would be really fun for me to write a book, my life is actually being written daily. Each day we make choices, we interact with others, we live a story.  The only difference between a written story and your life story is in life ... there are no editors. You can't just rip a section of your life out. Trust me - sometimes, I wish I had an editor.  I'd LOVE to rip a few pages of my life out. For example: I recently went shopping for some new make up. After an hour of searching for the perfect make up - trying on all the shades etc. (I have very sensitive skin - and can't just use any make up) I found it. It was exactly what I was looking for, and exactly in my price range. Sadly. ... they were sold out. Unwilling to waste any more time I left the store. I got into the car - and burst into tears. Wouldn't THAT be a page of my life that would be nice to tear out.I'm really not sure why I was crying, I just was. Even though it wasn't exactly my finest moment, I was very thankful that my husband just looked at me and  began to laugh. I know I was being unreasonable. - He didn't need to remind me. 

How about you, have you found yourself brought to tears in the frustration of the little things? - like foundation?! Isn't it nice to know that we have a heavenly father who loves us through it? I don't know about you, but I'm thankful for a God who loves me and forgives me for all my crazy. 

I'm also thankful for the precious gift he gave me when he wrote my love story.

Our Visit to The Little Farm

If you live in the South Florida area and have young children, I recommend filling a car with some friends and family and heading down to Goulds for some fun at "The Little Farm".*
As a mom of young children I'm always searching the web for fun (free or inexpensive) adventures for our family. It was on one of these searches that I found The Little Farm. 
I was skeptical at first because it was 5.00 just to park the car, but... when you've been cooped up in your house with three kids for a few weeks you start to look for opportunities to get out. 
At The Little Farm you will find lots of animals to look at, a cute photo opportunity ($12.00), pumpkins, petting zoo ($4.00), butterfly garden (free), horse and pony rides ($3.00), a play area and food for purchase. According to the website, proceeds from the food and pumpkin purchases during the pumpkin patch event are given to charity.
Our family had a lovely afternoon playing on the farm. We decided not to go inside the…

Tips for taking your Toddlers to the Magic Kingdom - AFTER Bedtime!

Hiya Pals!

In an attempt to capture as many beautiful memories of the days when we traveled through Disney with three toddlers, I have brought my Youtube Channel back to life!

In my most recent vlog, I share several tips on how to have an amazing time in the Magic Kingdom with your toddlers after they are typically in bed. You can find three of the tips listed below.


Tip 1  Make sure children are well rested. Since we live about 5 hours from Walt Disney World, our children are often asleep most of the time we are driving. Since it's next to impossible to get them to go to sleep once we get to our hotel room, we opt for a few hours of fun in the parks. 
Tip 2 Have a plan.  We decided to grab fast passes for the Princesses and Peter Pan because those activities typically have a long line. In order to make the most of our evening, we only did things located inside Fantasy Land. This helped maximise our time inside the parks. 
Tip 3 Utilize the Baby Center!  We always head to the baby c…

MOM HACKS: Postpartum Hair Loss & Regrowth!

Remember when you were pregnant, and everything seemed to glow? 
If you, like me, find yourself sweeping up enormous amounts of hair from you floor, or constantly cleaning your shower drains and vacuum cleaners, fear not. 
You are NOT alone. 
Our hair goes through different cycles. There will be times when your hair is in a state of rest, and then will shed. According to what I've read, when you are not expecting, you loose about 100 hairs a day. However, once you become pregnant, your body slows down the cycles. Thus, keeping those 100 hairs nicely on your head.

Once your beautiful baby is born, and your hormones start to go back to normal... the cycle returns and your hair begins to fall. With all three of my pregnancies, this happened between 3-5 months postpartum. It's quite unfortunate that just about the time I was feeling like a human, and getting the hang of motherhood my hair started falling out.

Now that I've gone through this process three times, I thought I'…
