Why you should write letters back and forth with your son



My son is 10 years old and we have a journal that we have been writing back and forth in for several years.   We have some large gaps in between some entries but that makes it more special when we get it out again and reread some of the topics.   I also love to see the improvement in his writing.   We talk about all kinds of things and sometimes he doesn't have much to say but he does enjoy reading the encouragement I write for him.   I really see this journal as something he will take when he leaves our household.   I see it being a treasure when I pass away some day too... I guess because I lost my mom when I was 18 years old I think about things like that more.  

So my favorite reasons to journal back and forth:
1. open the door for good communication
2. My son asks questions more
3. I see his growth on pages
4. I love to reminisce about the past with him
5. He loves the encouragement
6. He feels the love
7. I feel the love

So don't wait any longer start a journal back and forth and help increase your communication with your son!

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,
