We Are Now Delving Into The World Of Orthodontics

We have known since Mr. J's first dental visit (just before 2) that he was going to need orthodontic work.  The dentist took one look at his mouth, and told me to start saving.  He has a small jaw, and with only his baby teeth there was lots of crowding.



A few months ago at a routine check up, the dentist said it was time to see an orthodontist.  She made the referral and we had our appointment.  After x-rays, the orthodontist recommended a Rapid Palate Expander instead of extractions. (He wouldn't let me take a photo, but if you go to the link it will show you)

Rainy Day Fun With Hasbro (Board Games Galore and Toys Too) #BloggersFete


We recently had a shipment arrive from Hasbro, one of the #BloggersFete sponsors.  The boys were so excited when we opened it and they found the Nerf Modulus Tri-Strike, Blazing Team Echostrike FX and Twister (we are waiting on the Rescue Bots Headquarters, but it has been delayed) We also received a box filled with Battleship, Clue, Connect 4 and Jenga.

Summer Bucket List Week 3 Update



A few weeks ago the kids and I sat down to create our summer bucket list. It's something we do each year, and while we know that we may not cross everything off our list, it just gives us some ideas of what we want to do with their time off school.

BloggersFete2016 starts next Monday and I'm so excited! Bonnie, Suzanne, Margarita, Ladena, Tara and I have been busy on Facebook and email planning this event for months now. We're kicking off the 10-day event with a Twitter party on Tuesday night. You're all invited to join us and win some fantastic prizes from our sponsors!

Mommy's Little Workers

We had some time last week where the kids were bickering like crazy. It was really getting on my nerves, so I decided to put them to work.  I gave them each a job to do (that I had been putting off for quite a while).
