Top 10 Things My Children Would Miss Most If I Were Abducted By Aliens

Hey Neighbors!

Here is a unique opportunity brought to me by Social Moms and Mars Needs Moms. What would my children miss most if I were abducted by aliens. Here are some tings I think they would miss if mom suddenly disappeared without any explanation.

1. They would miss having someone short around to pick on. (And I am talking nice teasing, not being mean.) You know like, "Mom, do you need help reaching the counter?" They love to tease me about being short! Since all but two have outgrown me I get a lot of short jokes! I mean imagine if they suddenly became the shortest person in the house because mom was abducted. Maybe I would get the chance to be the tallest!

2. They would miss having me home school them. You know, when I have to enforce memory work, or that math problems must be done on time. Along with the great field trips that get planned, like zoos, museums, civil war sites, etc. And of course music lessons! They would really miss those! No more guitar or piano, or practice singing! We love to sing together as a family and often sing in the vehicle on trips. It would be awful quiet without me to egg them on!

3. They would definitely miss game night! We have game night every Friday and they love to stay up late and have snacks and play games. Especially the ones they win. Like my son almost always wins at Monopoly, but when it comes to Scrabble they may not miss me too much! No more mom telling them, that is not a real word and someone else would win.

4. Baking times! We love to bake together, and I think they might miss that a lot. They all love baking days! Cookies, cakes, muffins, and other special desserts. We work together in the kitchen, and then we all get to enjoy it together. I think they would miss this a lot.

5. They would also miss mom making them pick up their bedroom! I mean who doesn't want mom coming in right before they head out to play and telling them they have to clean their bedroom first. This is one I know they would miss.

6. They would also miss playing racquetball together. It has become quite a competition between us. You never know who will come out ahead. I may be short, but I can still whip some of them at racquetball!

7. Dinner time. They would definitely miss the meals! Especially the boys. They would have to survive on fast foods and microwave meals! Just kidding! They have all had lessons in the kitchen, but I still think they would miss mom there directing everything!

8. I think they would miss having to try new foods. You know the ones they look at and wrinkle their nose. They have to at least try them. And you have to chew and swallow. No putting it in your mouth taking a big gulp of drink and swallowing it whole. I want you to taste it.

9. They would miss mom reminding them to do things. You know, like; brush your teeth, close the door, get your elbows off the table, walk the dog, etc. I mean imagine how they would feel if I was not there to give them guidance throughout their day.

10. And of course they would miss mom using them as guinea pigs for her blog posts. Can you try this and tell me if you like the flavor? Would you let me take your picture wearing this new shirt? Did you like the new toothpaste?

They really are a blessing and I know i would miss them, so I hope they would miss me! Not just the funny things or difficult things, but the fun times. Reading at night, playing together, and just being a close knit family! Thanks Social Moms for this opportunity!

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

 Hey neighbors, its with a heavy heart I let you all know that my mom (Lori) unexpectedly passed away the end of June. Our family has been taking the time between now and then to be together and remember what a light mom was. I came on towards the end of last year and was planning on fully moving my interviews and review to this website. I intend to to so partially to keep mommas beautiful website going. Thank you all so much for your love and support over the years. ~Mercy
