Five lessons every kid should learn!

Nanny McPhee Returns (In Theaters August 20, 2010) is coming soon! This weekend. School hasn't started for us and we've been planning to surprise our 6 year old and going to be taking her to go see it as a last days of summer surprise! We just adored the first one. Not only is it a great action-packed movie, but it also has lots of great lessons to teach children. They don't make many movies like this anymore.

In Nanny McPhee Returns, Emma Thompson is still the nanny and appears when she's needed the most and wanted the least. This time around the now Mrs. Green is trying to run the household as father is at war and two cousins have moved in. See how Nanny McPhee teaches them five new lessons. Watch the movie to see why she appears this time around!

I am also writing this post as part of a Twitter Moms contest to win a $50 Fandango gift card! I am going to share some lessons we try to teach our lil girlies, ages 6 and 1 1/2. First off, the age difference. Our 6 year old is very polite and knows how to use her manners with strangers and elders and the 1 1/2 year old has been a challenge and our 6 year old tries to teacher, which reinforces what we taught her! It's so adorable and wrong! lol Here are a few lessons we try to instill on both girlies, in no particular order:
  1. Don't chew with your mouth open! How ever old or young you are, it's not only disgusting but rude!
  2. Say please, thank you, your welcome, excuse me and after you!
  3. No running!
  4. Eat your vegetables!
  5. Say, "I love you" before anything.
To see more lessons you can go to, and see what others have to share. You to can share your lessons. You have until September 15, 2010 to submit your entry.

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
