The 15 Minute Food Rule

{via} Our kids have become quite the picky eaters. We tried punishing them. Sending them to bed early. Putting them in time out. Taking away privileges of watching a show after dinner. Nothing was working. Stubborn kids. No idea where they got that from. Sometimes the girls would like the food & eat it, butContinue Reading

Moments to Treasure with Miss Cakes

I’m really enjoying my walks with Miss Cakes. This week, we walked by a park & stopped to play. {Here she’s telling me that the people at her brother’s school told her not to climb up the slide, but she’s not listening to them.} On our way home, she pointed out all the people whoContinue Reading

The Strange Man

Last weekend my mom took Miss Boo & Miss Cakes to the movie theater to see Brave. My mom told them to tell her if they saw any strange men. The movie went well, with no incidents of strange men.
