Prom is right around the corner

Okay parents lets get down to the nitty gritty about prom!   I do not have children in the teenage years yet, but one day I will and prom is one of those topics that goes along with modesty, sex, drinking, cost/expenses, and well honor when you ask them to be wise in their decision making.   Are you prepared to walk down that conversation with them?  Where do you stand on mini dresses VS. floor length prom dresses debate?  Short dresses have been a current trend over the last 3-4 years so can you find a short dress and it still be modest?  I pray God will prepare your heart and give you wisdom to discuss these issues and morals with your kids/teens and find a way to come to an agreement that will be pleasing in the sight of God  

Will you cave in and allow your daughter to pick a dress that reveals to much because she feel's pretty?  The world has been telling our kids for years to show more skin  and selling sex on every commercial, store, movie, book, radio, etc etc.  If you take some time and build up her self esteem, self worth, and help her understand why modesty is so important while encouraging her with compliments of beauty you will be able to speak not only life affirming words but also setting some good morals and standards in the area of modesty and sex!!

Beyond the biggest concerns of modesty and sex during prom I understand that parents are looking for cheap prom dresses that their daughters will love and be modest.  Don't get in a rush to buy the dress, take your time and search for the good deal and the modest dress!  

So I would love to hear your thoughts on this topic!  What did you wear to prom?  Did you make wise decisions?  Any advice on talking with teen on these topics?

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!
