Titus 7th Birthday- Nerf

HAPPY 7th Birthday TITUS!!!!  

It was a success!   No injuries and kids had fun!  WINNING for me as a parent!  ;) 

On a more serious note- I have to admit I was a bit worried to throw my son a nerf party.   With all the political drama around gun control and student safety, I was worried that doing a NERF themed party would upset a parent.   However, no one seemed bothered and no one brought it up.   Let's be honest- nerf guns is like a fun way to play dodgeball or tag, which were a couple of the games we did play.  

I'm so thankful Titus had fun and that he has great friends!  

 









Dear Tman, 
A couple weeks ago I told you I heard on the radio that we all need, "12 hugs a day!"  (It truly was a study- 4 hugs to survive, 8 to maintain, and 12 to grow) I am happy to report that you took this as a serious task every day since hearing that.   I think it has doubled my hugs with you each day and that is putting me in a good mood for sure!   

This last year, you have grown up!  You have gotten taller- you might not feel it as you are still smaller in your grade but trust me you are growing out of your clothes! This year you became a fluent reader- you enjoy it now!   You are a leader and friend to all in your class.   You make me proud of you all the time. 

Soon soccer season is going to start and I will be an official Soccer mom as we will carpool a friend with us!   Thanks for giving me that title!  Life would be boring without you in it!   

We love you so much!

Love, 
Mom

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
