Motivation Monday – When You Thought I Wasn’t Looking

Quotes About Family And Beach

Please click below to see video……



You know, with Easter just ending the other day, I couldn’t help but think about all the kids that had their candy-filled Easter baskets, & the super fun they probably had searching for hidden Easter eggs. I don’t have my own children, but as I’ve stated in my bio, I have cared for them, & I also have several nieces & nephews.  And do you know what I’ve noticed? Kids LOVE to copy & imitate. They love to play follow the leader, they love to pretend.  Many times I will give a child a specific verbal response to an action, & on another occasion hear one of them respond to another child with the very same wording! They are so amazing, & yet so impressionable.

I discovered this video some time ago & thought it was just too profound not to share, so take a moment to view it…especially if you are a parent, or have an authoritative role in the lives of children, please do watch!

Also, share your comments on what you thought about it.  Enjoy 😊

Fun Friday – Spring Is Here! 5 Great Ideas For Spring Break

Happy St. Pat’s Day! Well, believe it or not, winter has come & is already on its way out.  It seems to have gone by exceptionally fast this year.  The temps are slowly but surely warming up & tiny buds are beginning to sprout everywhere.  Pretty soon, many schools will be closing, allowing for the majority, a much-needed break. So, what’s on the agenda? No worries,  I’ve come up with a few, great ideas you can utilize for those taking time off.


1)  Take a short trip  

... for a Great Road Trip


Many people schedule their vacation time around the school calendar, so this is an ample time to stretch your legs & get in some sun! You can take a short drive further into town or to the next state over.  Some may have planned months in advance to take plane drips to further destinations, like Florida or to Disney World.



2)  Spend quality time


Even if you don’t go out-of-town, you can still use this time to just hang out & have fun! Plan local activities right in your own town, or better yet, your own yard!  Get outside & play with the kids, play indoor board games & the video game systems too! Go hang out at your favorite restaurant & stay out longer than usual…just to mingle!



3)  Volunteer your time


Some people don’t have the luxury of taking off during spring break with their kids.  If you’re going to be available & know someone who may need help with childcare that week, lend a hand!  Arrange play-dates with the kids. Your neighbor or friend, will be forever grateful I assure you 🙂



4)  Spring Cleaning

Yes, I know, I know…this one doesn’t sound fun or glamorous, but more than likely needs to be done.  It’s time to clear out all the debris the snow left behind, (depending on where you live) & return to storage, all of the bulky clothing & other excessive items accumulated over the winter months, taking up space.  You can also donate clothing & items that you don’t need, to make room for lighter summer wear & decor that you will swap out. For those with a green-thumb, you may want to whip out the garden tools for some early planting. 🙂



5)   R E S T !

Take some time just to catch your breath!  Enjoy your time with your family, but don’t forget to take some time for yourself too.  Sleep in & do NOTHING, if you so choose.  Sit & watch TV & treat yourself to that extra scoop of ice cream 🙂  Soak in a soothing, warm bath. Re-lax, Re-charge, Re-focus, Re-boost. “Ahhh”… now doesn’t that sound lovely? Lastly, no matter what you choose to do, have a happy & safe spring  va-cay! Until next time…“Toodles!” 😊

Fun Friday – Kids Give Adults Haircuts

Hey, maybe you can save a trip to the barber shop! A funny, entertaining video! 🙂


This gives me so much nostalgia. When I was 10, I once convinced my younger friend that I could give her the haircut of a lifetime. Oh boy, was it a haircut she will never forget in her life. I hope this video makes your week more bearable!
