1st Lost Tooth

It happened on 7/3/13, another reminder to me that my children are growing up!!!  I knew it would be any day since her tooth was barely hanging on.  My daughter was sitting at the dinner table and while eating she said, "my tooth came out!"  She was grinning from ear to ear and so thrilled.  Even with a little blood there were no tears but just excitement!  YAY!  

I know the second tooth will be out soon too.  Soon she will enter that awkward tooth stage.  You know the one that creates funny smiles!

Dear Selah,
It was so fun watching your excitement when you first realized you had a lose tooth to the end when you lost it.  I am amazed at your maturity at 5 years old. I will continue to pray for you and your bright future but my heart wants to hang on to you and not allow you to get any older.  Maybe it's a protection thing, maybe it's myself who does not want to get older, or maybe its my way of not wanting the world to hurt or cause you pain as you get older.  All I can tell you is I will always be praying for you, I will always be your #1 fan, and I will try my hardest to protect you.  As I watch you grow up I watch you fall more and more in love with Jesus and I pray that I would always be held accountable in raising you in TRUTH, teaching you who you are in Christ!  You my sweet little girl are royalty, a princess of the most high God, and you my dear will shake history- You are a world changer!  I know God has big plans for you- I am having fun watching Him already use you.  

I love you and I am excited for you to use your cool coupons for losing your first tooth.  

Love Mommy

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
