That darn Youtube

Ever wonder what type of day a family across the country is having? Or a week? Here is some of the conversations me and my girls has this week! Can you relate to any of these, what was the topic of your conversation this week?
  1. What does the fox say?
  2. Did you wipe your butt?
  3. Do you want more tortillas?
  4. Help me wash the dishes
  5. Say "Mommy"
  6. Let's do some YOGA!
  7. Want to go to visit Great-Grandpa?
  8. Turn on the TV and put a movie
 This week has been CRAY-CRAY!  Annaleah loves that darn Youtube video of Yilvis. What do you think?



Moving on... we are also at the very beginning stages of potty training Annleah. We are slowly starting EC but she's already telling us when she goes number 2, flushing it and saying that she needs to wipes when she's done. And she's getting a hang of it!

We are Hispanic and live in deep south Texas and we have tortillas at least once a week. Whether it's corn or flour, we are a staple in our household.

Chores! It's a big thing in our home. Yvette, our 9 year old was use to doing her chores, but now she's starting to be a bit argumentative. However, our 4 year old, Eliada, will take her place and help me do almost anything when I ask her. So, this week she was helping me wash the utensils.

Yup... no "Mommy" yet. It's so sad. She's a pro at "Daddy." but no Mommy yet.

Do you do yoga? Well, Yvette is doing the Get Fit with "H-E-Buddy and Bruce Bowen" and does 60 minutes of activity a day. Since she does at least 30 in school, we are doing 30 minutes at home. It has been a blast because it gets Mami off her butt too! So after school we have been going to the park or doing yoga or playing outside while mom hangs up the laundry.

Yup... my girls have both my mom's parents and dad's parents. They are so lucky. We go visit at least once a week and they love to see them. But when the girls are sick we don't visit as often. Do your kids have their grandparents? They are such a blessing.

We have a Netflix and a media computer connected to our TV. The girls know how to turn on the TV, sound system and computer, open a window and play a movie from Netflix. WOW!

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…
