Toddlers And Medicine: Tips to get it down!

Delivery: Use a medicine dropper and not the cup.
The right aim:  Taste buds are concentrated on the front and center of the tongue, so bypass those finicky taste zones by placing the medicine near the back of her/his tongue.  Or try dropping it between the rear gum and the inside of her cheek, where it will easily glide down her/his throat with minimal contact with taste buds.  (Yes, this requires a bit of skill, and maybe an extra set of hands to keep your toddler still while you perfect your dunk shot.)
Hide it: Ask your doctor if it’s okay to sneak the particular medicine into foods or drinks.  If you get the thumbs-up on that, stir the medicine into a small amount of applesauce, ice cream, or fruit juice. My favorite (or theirs..haha) is chocolate syrup!  But remember, if you do mix the meds into something else, your toddler needs to eat or drink the whole thing in order to get the full dosage.
Give them a say: Empower your child by lettering her choose between different flavor…

10 ways to make Mommy Life a little simpler !

Hey ladies so I get asked ALL the time what I do to relax or how I deal with so many kids and stay sane lol
Let me just say Im going crazy half the time but I do have a few tips Id like to share that do help, hope these are useful to some of you!
1.Handle important two-minute tasks immediately. 2. Meal plan (I weekly meal plan)  3. Do laundry every time you have enough to make a load, put it away as soon as it comes out the dryer (Im Still trying to master this one :) 4. Set your clothes out and your kiddos clothes out the night before. 5. Some of you may not like this idea but I keep all of my kids socks in one basket they are not matched I just throw them in there, Keep in mind I have 4 sometimes 6 kids so for me to sit and match theirs and mine and Joseph's is just not realistic for me. This saves a lot of stress and time.  I keep a basket for all of their socks and a basket for mine and Joseph's.  6. Crossbody bag A hands-free, crossbody purse is great for moms who need to use thei…

Kids Fashion on a budget!

I am a mommy of 4, dressing four little ones and keeping up with the current trends for them can be pricey. Over the years I've learned some ways to save on money when it comes to shopping for my children's clothing, shoes and accessories. Im here to share some of those tips with you.. so lets get started!1. Shop department store clearance racks You can find some really good deals, I usually only buy from these racks when I shop at department stores 2. Accept Freebies Take advantage of the offer 3. Yards Sales I have great success at finding more baby and toddler clothes at yard sales but I sometimes get lucky with the older kids clothes.  4. Pass it down  I pass my oldest sons clothes that are in good condition and no longer fit down to my younger son, same goes with my oldest daughter, my youngest gets her good conditioned clothing  5. Shop at consignment stores I love these store. I frequently shop at these places I always find great pieces; accessories, shoes and clothing at grea…

How to wear patterned leggings..

So this is a current trend that I AM LOVING! I just wanted to share the correct ways (in my opinion) on how to wear them :)
I like the material to be cotton (more comfy) As I wear these particularly in the daytime and cotton is more casual. I even like the spandex materials too!
I buy mine at Wet Seal. Styles for less. Sears & Forever 21
So basically you want to keep the top PLAIN.. no patterned shirts. Keep your top SOLID.  So for leggings  1 I would probably wear a cream off the should loose shirt. 2 Maybe a boyfriend tee, I would choose a color.. BRIGHT blue or HOT PINK 3 Either a black or white.. loose and long shirt. 4 I would stick with a cream colored long tee 5 You could do yellow, white, blue dark grey again long tee or baggy top 6 Not sure if I'd wear 6 haha but Id just wear a white shirt.. could never go wrong with a white top right? ;) and the last ones that aren't marked with a number, these are black and white and would be perfect for a long loose shirt in ANY color! As far…

So Random Saturday: IM A MEAN MOM!

Im the meanest mom! It all started a few years ago, when I let my oldest son start playing "war" games on his xbox. I knew that his friends had these games and he enjoyed playing them. With him wanting to be a cop and interested in being the army when he gets older I didnt see any harm. Well over the years and after spending lots of money on games like "Black Ops" and "Socom" and seeing a huge change in his behavior and one day watching him play one of these games and actually hearing what they say in the game and the actual content of these video games I finally said NO MORE! Me and Joseph (my significant other/daddy) agreed to get rid of all the war games and any game with the rating of Teen or Mature. My son who is 9 of course is upset and now I feel bad cause I feel like he should have never been able to play these games in the first place. Its been about a month since hes been able to play any of these games and I have seen a huge change in his behavior,…
