I Am So Bored! - Children's Book Review

One of the most challenging things for parents to hear is, "I'm Bored". The cute story by Henrike Wilson called I'm So Bored reminds children to look for the adventure in what seem to be dull moments.

We live in a world of endless media entertainment for children and this story is a little reminder to:
* look up to the clouds for discovery
* look around at what might be right under their nose
* play make believe
* be patient because something will present itself

My little Maddie loves this story at bedtime because she can remember the animals that she saw in the clouds that day.

Live Clean has come out with new body washes in many lovely fresh scents. What I like about these body washes is that they can also be used as bubble baths. My favourite one is the Coconut Milk scent.... The other scents include: Vanilla Oatmeal, Exotic Nectar Argan Oil, and Fresh Water.

I always prefer to have natural soaps for hand washing, and Live Clean has come out with a new liquid hand soap that my family has been enjoying. My girls have sensitive skin and the ingredients - which include oatmeal - are gentle on their little hands. 

My First Two Rounds of the 21 Day Fix Are Completed and I'm Now On Round Three....

Jenny Lutes

I've just started my third round of the "21 Day Fix" with the eating plan and Shakeology, and I feel more like my old self.
(I wrote about my 30 pound weight gain in my post "I Am Not This Body".) Exercise has never mattered to me, but for the past 6 weeks I've made sure to get a workout in every morning before I do anything else.

When I first started Maddie joined me and followed along saying, "This is really hard Mommy. You can do it." Ava occasionally walked by and said, "You're doing that wrong." when I was modifying the planks...which I still do. The puppy now barks at me because she can't figure out what I'm doing. This is the reality of motherhood - we have to take time to take care of ourselves regardless of what's going on around us.
