Here’s a list of 10 easy and cute turkey crafts for the holidays

  1. img_0877I love this activity because the supplies are cheap, and the instructions are so simple! Little kids need to learn how to spell his/her name so this is such a cute lesson.

1.  Have your child color the paper plate brown.

2.  Cut and attach the feet,  bill and caruncle.  Also, attach the eyes.

3.  Cut and label a feather from construction paper for each letter in your child’s name.

Note:  Your child may be able to do step 2 and 3 on their own.

4.  Hide the letter feathers in a designated space.

Reasons I Love My Daughter in School :

  • She makes new friends.

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized the importance of friendships. I truly wish I realized this, that my parents nurtured this idea when I was my daughter’s age.

  • I see other parents.

Suddenly I don’t feel so alone in the ” sometimes” struggles that feel like suffocation.

  • I hear others parenting.

This morning, I walked past an older woman of whom I’ve spoken to before. She had a small child with her, and she was instructing, “You always let the girls to first.” Way to go ma’am. That’s chivelry this world’s forgotten. Continue reading “Top 10”

Preparing for Back-to-School Germs

Oh yes, we all know children share every possible germ they carry. When Mid-August rolls around, those musinex snotty bugger things start making their ugly appearances. I thought I would get a Jumpstart on the bandwagon, and started getting sick this weekend. 😦 My eyes have been annoying and watery. Made trying to do makeup horrible. Today, I feel like I’m chilly, despite the 80+ degrees out. I’m sore and just want to soak a hot bubble bath, then sleep.

Sooooooooooooo

Here are several helpful tips that can speed up the recovery process, no matter at what stage one is sick. Some of these are brilliant.

Going Back to School 2018

Parents,

This year has been my very first experience with this part of parenting. Every year before, I’ve always felt annoyed with how “in your face” stores seemed to be about it. I suppose the hype from the ridiculous list contributed to my cause of irritability.

Today, while in Family Dollar, I pulled up that trusty ol School Supplies List… And I felt as if I just landed in Tibet! “What on earth type of pencil sharper? “, I mumbled to myself. “A tablet? Kindergarters have a tablet on the list” I explained in hysteria (little me.. In my head). I felt so new with the procedure of preparing my daughter for school.

I’d like to tell you that’s the end of the akward and anxiety this chapter of change has brought me, but it’s not. Getting the paperwork to enroll required me to drive to downtown Cleveland, to an area of which I’ve never been, and sign her up. I quadruple checked the night before that I had all the needed paperwork and then some! Thankfully, Zivah (Zee-v-Uh) {my older daughter} and I were in and out of there quickly.

Next came signing up for the choices of schools I’d want to her. Here, the parents have to choose several. Depending on previous students, students with incoming siblings, seats available (all the fun variables that work your nerves simply because it’s tedious), I had to wait and see if my first choice would offer her a spot…. And they did!

Whew, I was overwhelmed! I cried!!! I knew this setting, teaching style, and philosophy was exactly what Zivah needed. I knew here she’d blossom and actually enjoy learning….. But, with my excitement came more anxiety….

What about getting to school? Zivah has a 2 1/2 year old sister. We three would have to wake every morning, get dressed, eat and out the door by 8:30! That’s structured! I haven’t had an obligated schedule that structured since I was in school. Needless to say, the anxiety was taking over my breathing rather aggressively. I not only had another child, but my vehicle is picky come winter temperatures (as if three women with hormones isn’t enough)! What if my car wouldn’t start and I was out, trying to get Zivah and stranded… Who would I call? I mean, I was really psyching myself out. It was horrible 😦

I eventually found a bus schedule, rather easy to follow and safe for her to wait. I of course will take her some days, but the option of public service is a thousand pounds off my chest. (When I wasn’t worried about bus bullies, accidents, and shit!) Our schools even have a bus tracker feature in the parent portal so we know when the children arrive!

This whole experience has been exhausting, to say least (and I even left out the aspect of school uniforms shopping 🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️)! I’ve felt like I’ve been too exposed to society and change. I knew this was coming, but on any given day, there’s at least a zillion factors that could make something “new” feel like something “terrifying”! I really wanted a teacher friend, or a fellow parent, hell my momma, to talk to about everything. I feel I need reassuring that everything will be OK… And Zivah will do great in school. I haven’t had that… So, I’m reaching out to you all…

Asking simply for a hug! You don’t have to fix anything, nothings broken… You don’t have to suggest anything, I’ve gotten by,…. I just need some hugs so I can feel comfort of a safe and familiar place again.

Thank you 💙
