How much food can you eat?

so my little chunk is 8 months and he is eatting like the hungry caterpillar or the mouse from the book if you give a mouse a cookie. lol he is so hungry. When I was pregnant with him. I was always hungry I could literally eat everything in the house and not fill full. Did I think anything of it not really. With my oldest I could eat but I had my three foods I ate pasta, Mexican food and sweets. and I would be good to go. But my little guy was hungry in my tummy and out my tummy he is starving. Before we got the ok to feed him solids I was breast feeding him and It felt like I was feeding him every three seconds. lol it was not enough for him so I started to add formula it worked for a couple months once he turned 7 months he stop drinking breast milk and just went to formula but at 4 month he got the ok to eat solids oatmeal and I'm telling you he would eat all his food and drink all his milk. Now 8 months is here and I feed him breakfast, snack, lunch, snack dinne

Everyday I see my self in my sons. more in the oldest then the youngest because the little one is just trying to figure it out. But my oldest he thinks he's got it all down to the T..why you ask because he's my son  He has my attitude and my know it all ways along with his father attitude and blow it off deminer to. So it's double the trouble.  When my son is in one of his bad moods or hasn't ain't his lunch oh man just be prepared to know he's really a good kid and don't think he means everything he says.

Half way mark

If your not subscribed to my blog or you don't follow me on twitter, Pinterest or Instagram. I started a 60 day challenge for my self to blog a day and post a short video on instaragm every day for 60 days.   I started this challenge on May 21, 2018 The reason why I started this challenge for myself is so I can push my self to do more. I originally started my blog for book reviews and away to promote books that I was selling while being an independent consultant with usborne books and more but as I used this platform to help promote books I saw that my viewers didn't really want to here a promotion every time and you guys were more intrested in my a thinking mom post or the life of a wife. You guy just wanted more content on you know, my family lifestyle and experience. So I put the usborne books aside and started to get more serious with just blogging. and let me just say I have been doing pretty good with coming up with content that you guys enjoy to read. So I said

What is your dream career?

**This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.  My dream career is fashion design.  At a young I would love going shopping for clothes and making sure I had the right outfit and had the best matching shoes.

Well my junior year came and the opportunity was still available me and my friend looked over the classes and she saw fashion design she sa

Thinking mom #11 (Confession)

My confession as a mother of two. You are always asked the question by your kids or other people do you have a favorite. Between the two of my kids. Now let me just say this first my oldest is 7 years old and my youngest is only 8 months old. The two of them are so young but at the same time both of them have a very known personality. My oldest he is the more out and about thinks he knows it all. well I can say that because I am his mother and if you get to know my son personally when he let's down his wall you will see what I'm talking about. I raise my oldest to be respectful when out in public so he knows the attitudes stay' s at home but some times that attitude does come out and I have to tell him to re-asses his way of talking or what have you. lol But my youngest. he is a little cute person who has a lot of attitudes as well. now im still teaching him when out in public be nice when people say hi to say hi back. but lately if I'm talking to some one o

Do you read-ish?

Do you read-ish is my non paid book review on the story book ish by Peter H. Reynolds.. I have always seen the book but never picked it up and read it. Until a couple of days ago. My oldest son was able to pick 12 free books from his school and ish was one of the books. I told him oh wow I have always seen this book, have you read it yet he said know. So with that said we proceeded to read the book and at first I was thinking to my self I wonder what this book is going to talk about.and as we read the book it was about a little boy named roman who loved to draw all the time but one day his older brother laughed at him for drawing and it discouraged him. And since his older brother laughed and said it wasn't good drawing he throw all his pictures and art supply away and gave it up until his little sister saw him throwing away his stuff and she showed him her room and it was filled with all his art and that brought joy to him, she told him that she like his vase picture bec

It was and still is a place where you can get news and latest trends Quicker then you can type your own great news. With Twitter you are aloud to send out news, sales, any information you want but it can only be up to  160 character and that's including your hashtags.

Father's day Father's day, father's day oh how I appreciate father's day I love my father so much I think he is one of the coolest dads I know I am able to talk to my dad about anything from sports, cars, clothes to even animals. My favorite memories with my dad is when I was little we use to watch the anamil channel together. Ya I'm a girl but that was awesome we would always watch the shows about loins which is my favorite animal. It wasn't Scarry to me and maybe it was because I just wanted to spend time with my dad.but my other memorie is in the summer time or on a hot day my dad would take me and my sister to go get icecream and we would get icecream cones. My dad would get us both two scoops and every time like clock work I would like my ice cream two hard and my ice cream would always fall my dad never got mad. Or stopped taking me to get icecream or stop getting a ice cream cone. As an adult now I think back on those times and really apprec

Are you linkedin?

Linked in? Linked in to what you ask. Linked in is a form of social media. It's more gear toward business companies to people or should I say employees. It is a professional platform  where you can make an account with your picture along with your resume and a short paragraph on why a company should hire you. Linkedin was launched in 2005. And ever since they have never looked back. It is a helpful platform for business and employees to sort out the good and bad oppurtunities. With Linked in if your starting to be a let's say fashion designer and your looking for work you can upload your work on the site along with all your credentials like name address and what school you went to. If you earned a degree or not . And either wait for a business to get in contact with you who is looking for a seamstress or pattern maker which ever you listed that your looking for. Or you can seek them out as well. You also can  follow other people in your line of your work , or bui

fathers be inspired.

Since fathers day is just three days away I felt it would only be right to share a inspirational quote I found from  I feel that this quote is so real and so home hitting because everyone can have kids but not everyone can be a parent/Father. parenting is a hard thing that you can't just give up on when ever you want. you have to be determined and focused. because parenting is a life long dedication. but the end goal is to see are kids grow. “The guys who fear becoming fathers don’t understand that fathering is not something perfect men do, but something that perfects the man.  The end product of child raising is not the child but the parent.” – Frank Pittman ~Now that's life.TheFLandF~ Subscribe, follow, like, comment, Share,

What is social media?

Social media. What is it. Is it a place to socialize and make friends or catch up with old one's. Or Is it a place to advertise your business socially. Why do they call it social media if it's used for everything under the sun. So basically social media is the internet but they wanted to try to group small sections of the internet  to make it easier to monitor. Or to make little business like monopoly everybody needs a home and or business per-say right. Well the reason why I'm writing this post is to try to break it down to make it easier to understand in laymen terms or in away that a little kid could understand it because kids now days can figure out technology faster then the person who built it. Or for 60yr old and up. When I say 60yrs old it is for the people who just don't have time to get to know the technology or just can't get it , or they don't want to learn it per-say because I know a lot of people 60yrs and older who know a little of it
