My poetry – Baby love

My love grew
every day I felt you
9 months I waited
until I got to see
your beautiful eyes
it was meant to be
a perfect piece of me
love you my baby

MOMS!!! Must read this! Protect your kids from lice!

I just wanted to post a quick blog about Ladibugs shampoo and conditioner. This shampoo is chemical free and made of high quality ingredients and natural oils and works to deter lice from being attracted to the hair. We got it as a result of our son picking up lice at school and passing it around the house. My sister works at a salon and ordered me some of these products. At first I didn’t like the smell at
all, and found it to be a little drying on my long hair. The more I have continued to use it on my child, (and he doesn’t seem to mind the smell!) the more I have come to like it! The shampoo is very eucalyptus smelling and conditoner is more minty. It smells very natural, and the bottle seems to be lasting and going a long way. As a mom, I had no idea I could use something to deter lice, so I felt the need to share this information! Might be something to try before your child ends up with lice!

15 Tips for Relaxation – How real people, and especially moms, find relaxation and stress relief

Image

This is exactly how I feel when I go to the dentist these days, something I hated before is now like a mini vacation, Lol. Frustration is an emotion I seem to be struggling with a lot lately. I find it hard to find time for myself and for stress relief techniques, heck, I feel like I am lucky to get through the week and keep up with just the regular things. Every now and then, I find a moment to do something that I am passionate about or that makes me feel good and relieves stress. Writing this blog right now after my children just went to bed, and before my boyfriend gets home from work, is one of those little things that bring me happiness and feels right, and lets me have a moment to myself to process my thoughts and feelings. I wanted to see what other people, and especially moms, had to say about their favorite things they look forward to, that bring them happiness and stress relief. Here are what some people said, and they are in no particular order:

1. Getting hair and/or nails done

2. Hot bubble bath – The Stress Relief Bath Soak Salts, especially the Eucalyptus Spearmint scent from Bath and Body Works are amazing and the best I have tried!! They will relax you! Also, I will never live without a Jacuzzi tub again.

3. Exercise – Walking, running, yoga… – I sure love my Wii Fit. The best yoga for me.

4. Watching something funny – Funny videos online, Ellen, Americas Funniest Home Videos, Ridiculousness, anything that gets you chuckling.

5. Shop online, or go out shopping and buy yourself a treat, such as clothing or something that makes you feel good and new.

6. Writing down your feelings and throwing them away/burning it.

7. Go for a drive – And rock out! Go find somewhere beautiful to take pictures or just to enjoy! A good suggestion was to take the kids out of the city and find some horses and cows for them to look at! Great idea Tonielle!!!

8. Get a coffee

9. Take photos, paint, make music or make a collage vision board – Do anything creative!

10. Have a visit with another mom and kids, and have a treat like a snack or coffee!

11. Get a massage

12. Focus on your breathing/Meditate

13. Lay in bed and read

14. Check out vacations or take a virtual vacation online – Thank you Google earth!

15. Visit family

As you can see, there are some great ideas, and definitely some things I would like to try to do more of. Thank you so much to everyone who gave me feedback and input, it is greatly appreciated! I hope you liked my blog. Thank you for stopping by!
