Praises of a Wife and Mommy was created for mom's like me. I like to share secrets, parenting advice, deals, the many arts and crafts that we do at our at home preschool, and most importantly share my faith. My many roles go beyond mom they also include, preschool teacher, Children's church teacher, youth pastor, wife, and one role I love Christ follower. Praises of a Wife and Mommy started small but is cotinuing to grow. I love to review products and hold giveaways.

Praises from a Wife and Mommy!
I am too embarrassed to actually take a picture of my dining room table to show you how icky and dirty it can get with 2 kids! Some of you could probably agree along with me on your own dining room table!
Some days I look at it and think have I ever cleaned this table off! Don't worry I absolutely do clean my table and often but each and every day my table gets so messy from food to crafts to who knows what else. My table is a typical wood table and I never have covered the wood but I am considering getting a table runner or maybe even a linen table cloth. I am in the need for some change and a room can be transformed with adding a little color by simple tricks such as a placemat, table runner, or tablecloth.
Yes, the hope would be keep my kids projects off of the dining room table and help keep me motivated to keep it clean. I have been making my kids have more responsibilities by clearing the table and washing it too which helps a lot.
I am in awe of the simplicity of the above table runner and you can find lovely designs like this at The White Company. It is elegant in white and the simple design with flowers is beautiful and would contrast great with my dark wood table. I think it would add so much class to my table but since I have never had a table runner before what do I need to know and how do I know what size to get.
Follow these great steps:
1. Measure your table- the common theme is your table runner should measure one-third the width of your table.
2. Table runners go directly in the center of the table.
3. Find a centerpiece to add more dimension to your table and bring out the beauty of the table runner.
4. You can use a table runner with or without a tablecloth.

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!
