SummerTime Flies.....

August is here and school is near.

With summer almost coming to an end it's bittersweet I love spending time with my oldest. I'm excited about what is to come of his new school year. I know everyone is starting to do their school shopping and all the kids are starting to get those first days of school jitters.
Right now my son is going to the second grade so he's knowing we still have a whole month of summer left and acting all nonchalant about being nervous for school, but he's starting to get a little clingy. that's how I know it's almost time to go back to school. He doesn't hate school, he just hates the process of going to bed on time and not being able to stay up late and watch all his shows. like a normal kid.
Back to school shopping which I am a mother of I better do it early than late, so I already did a little school shopping at the beginning of the summer I got half of his school supplies which is a lot of stuff for a second grader, but I know have of the stuff is for the kids to be able to share but really, that's how it goes. and a couple of shirts and pants so that way when we finish up school shopping we just have to get a few things not everything at once. However, there is nothing wrong with that I use to love to do that when I was little with my parents because you get all your clothes and shoes and everything and it seems like you went on a big shopping spree and it gets you in the mood for school.
What I like to do for my son which is kind of a tradition for my family is after we get all his supplies and school clothes I let him pick out which outfits  he wants to wear his first couple of days of school because school always lands in the middle of the week so he only goes a couple of days. So once he picks out his outfits I let him try it all on and do a little fashion show and it gets him all excited for school. what kid doesn't like shopping or getting to wear their favorite shoe or backpack because I know a lot of schools now are going uniform which is ok but were is the fun of going school shopping anymore if you just go shopping for supplies and backpacks maybe the shoes but even the shoes are a one brand black or white shoe. maybe the schools go uniform to stop bullying because all kids can't have the fancy clothes but it kind of takes the fun of school. Even though school is for learning it doesn't hurt to feel good about your self to help you focus on learning and something that makes you be different if everyone is the same it makes its boring. the truth is that every parent is getting excited to get some peace and quiet for a couple of months because the first three months our kids are just getting used to being back in school and making new friends and trying really hard on being a good student and studying but once the Thanksgiving and Christmas break comes that is when our children are going to be back to running and being loud and not trying there best and we are going to have to re-correct them which is ok it just shows their having fun.
Summertime flies and school time is back, at last, I hope everyone has fun shopping and getting their kid's school ready.

~Book review~


Are you a single mother? Are you a mother that feels all alone? A rubber face with a stripper's name. Memoir by Katja Berg is a book for you. This book is
a memoir of a woman who is a parent. A single parent of two kids who struggled to stay afloat. She felt all alone and broken with no one to help her figure out her own thoughts. Yes, she had friends but they didn't really understand her struggles as a single mother. Katja would feel left out of dinner parties because she had no date. She would always let her pride and conscious get the best of her. Ka…

No more bad secerts by Daisy Copelin (Book review) #Mustread

No more bad secrets. By daisy Copelin


To read a book from front cover to back is. What I did when I got this book I knew it was a children's book about personal bodies but wow. This book is so well written as I read through this book I was so proud to read it because one its telling something every kid should know and think about at school age. I love the fact that the author painted a picture of a child a good, innocent, child to see how kids are so proud to be children but someone can change that innocents and it's our duty as parents to always talk to our children and check in with them and make them feel so comfortable that no one can ever take our child's innocents and also check every adult predator and child no one is safe and always check for ques. I'm glad I read this book because I'm always talking about what is a good way to talk to our children about abuse, sex, or inappropriate behavior and this is a good book for parents and children to get a dialogue g…

what age do you have the birds and bees talk

Today is a day where we are going to get straight into it. When is a good age to have the birds and bees talk?

I ask this question only because I keep having these almost close talks with my son about the birds and bees. my son is only in the second grade and has come home asking me what is sex, and saying kids are doing subjective dances at school and he sees it and it confuses him.
now at this age you already have the regular talk about personal body's and personal space and no one is to see their personal body unless it's your parents and doctor and your doctor can only do that because your parent is around and letting them know the slang of there private parts so they could never get tricked or anything. Now the birds and bees talk is more for preteens to teenagers because you talk about sex and everything else under the sun at this point because there of age to understand mentally and physically understand there body and puberty and everything else. while being able to un…
