Mommy and Daughter Journal

My mom passed away when I was 18 years old.  To this day when I look through some of her notes in her Bible I get a mix of emotions.  I love seeing her hand writing, I love hearing her heart and her prayers, but sometimes it makes for a roller coaster of emotions.  I will admit it has been a long time since I have looked through those notes but after I saw an idea to create a journal to go back and forth between my daughter and myself I jumped on the idea and started right away.  

My daughter may only be 5 and can't write but she can draw and make sounds and before I know it she will be sounding words out.  

The idea for me is to be a constant reminder that I love her, that JESUS loves her, to share my heart and prayers with her so she can go back and reread when ever she has a bad day.  

If I had something like this even after 10 years of my mom's passing it would be amazing!!  :)  

I also think that creating a journal at such a young age with her right now will help keep the communication door open.  There might be hard topics she is not comfortable talking about but having a safe journal will be awesome.  :) 

I already love the one picture she has created for me and I know she will continue to share what ever might be on her little heart.  

I encourage you to start a journal with your son or daughter.  Once my lil man is older I plan on making another with him.  :)

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
