A Joovy {Boob} Story

From a new mom…..”So far he’s been a REALLY good baby. He basically just cries when he’s hungry. He was a tank at 9lbs 4 oz and looks exactly like his older brother. I LOVE my Joovy bottles!! I was using Born Free but they leak and have so many parts. My hubby really likes the Joovy bottles too, easy to put together for a man in a frenzy over a crying, hungry baby.”  from a “VERY satisfied mom”

Do You Take Your Children Trick or Treating on Halloween?

You may want to sit down before you read any further.  Whenever I tell people what I am about to tell you, jaws drop wide open.  I NEVER went trick or treating as a child.  EVER.

Yes, it is true.  My parents didn’t feel it was safe.  It was back in the day of horrible stories of razor blades hidden in candy apples and poisoned candy.  Hospitals volunteered to x-ray your candy for free to keep children safe.  Were there any truths to these stories or were they just urban legends?  If I was a parent with young children thirty years ago, I may have made the same decision as my parents.

I want to tell you that I never felt deprived or even thought I was missing out on trick or treating.   My parents put a lot of effort into making it a very special holiday for us.  We always had spectacular costumes, sometimes homemade and sometimes store-bought.  Our Halloween parties were the talk of the neighborhood.  They were so much fun with homemade treats and spooky games including a haunted house.   During the month of October,  our family would watch Halloween specials on TV like, Charlie Brown and the gang in It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and The Legend of Sleepy Hallow narrated by Bing Crosby.  On Halloween night, we would always dress up in our costumes and hand out candy to our neighbors and friends as they trick or treated.  I loved seeing all the different and creative costumes at our front door.

I went trick or treating for the first time when I was 28 years old.  My husband and I took my stepdaughter.  I was very excited.  We live in a very quiet and safe neighborhood.  It was a lot of fun to see all the children running down the streets with their overflowing bags of candy.  Today, our children go trick or treating and they love it.

After experiencing the trick or treating for several years now, I have to say that I am ready to stay home again and hand out the candy.

Whatever your Halloween traditions are, be true to your beliefs.  There are many ways to enjoy the holiday and have fun.

What are your Halloween traditions?

Help! We Have a Stereotypical Boy!

My youngest child and I went to the doctor for his five year old well check the other day.  The doctor asked if we were having any specific issues and I answered, “Nothing physical, just behavioral.”  She let out a giggle.  We had three girls before our son.  I had no idea what mothers meant when they said their sons were just so physical and active.  Now, I get it.   We need to “run” our son like a horse so he can burn his physical energy or disaster will strike.  Even after the “run,” we need to keep him engaged at home in a project, a lot free time leads to trouble.  He likes to help around the house.  Lucky for me, his favorite projects are with Dad and usually involve tools…and power tools are even more exciting.    This weekend they decided to take our rusty golf cart apart, sand it down and repaint it.  It’s like vacation time for me.

Another major difference I noticed is that my son has a much more difficult time verbally expressing himself than my daughters.  These days we are really working with him on using his words when he is frustrated.  Yesterday, he started to lose his temper.  I pulled him aside and he told me that I was embarrassing him.  I was so proud of him for communicating that to me.   In turn, instead of just putting him in a time out we explain to him what that issue is so that he understands.  This seems to be working…most of the time.

All the physical things aside, I love my son.  He looked up at me when we were watching a movie the other day and said, “Mom, you are the most beautiful woman in the world.”  Kids always seem to know what to say and when you really need to hear it.
