Printable Chore Chart


Chores are good way to teach your child responsibility and get them active in helping around the house. We are big on chores here; our 7 year-old has a few that she does every day after homework and before dinner. Some of her chores include: wiping down tables, windexing patio doors, windexing kitchen appliance fronts, […]

{ Printable Chore Chart }

A couple days ago, I made a┬áprintable behavior chart and then shared it here. Using the same template, I converted it into a chore chart! We definitely needed one for Lorelai. She’s been pretty good about picking up after herself, but I think having a dedicated sticker chart for her chores will help even more. […]

Behavior Chart

I made this behavior chart as a last ditch effort to get Lorelai to behave – mostly around bedtime. She has been so challenging when it comes to going to sleep. Last night we spent 2 hours “fighting” with her to get her down. It has to stop… we are drained mentally/emotionally. Hopefully this helps! […]

{ Toy Explosion }

Pretty much my reaction to the toy explosion today.

One of my biggest pet peeves as a parent are the amount of toys my child has collected. Between birthday bashes, Christmas, random gifts from family… it’s just overwhelming. I had a system set up about 6 months ago where she had a bunch of small-ish bins in the closet filled with different toys that […]

Lorelai's New Behavior Chart

I didn’t want to have to resort to this, but we are having a really rough time with Lorelai not listening and just, in general, being a little monster. I know she’s just testing her boundaries, but I’m hoping this visual chart will help me out a bit. I’m also going to try this other […]

{ Mommy Melting! }


I cut Lorelai’s sandwich into a heart shape today and told her it was because she’s special and I love her. WOW. If I had foreseen the reaction I got, I would have started cutting her sandwiches into special shapes a long time ago. She flipped. Squealed her little Lorelai squeal. Jumped up and down […]

{ The Stuffed Bunny }


A couple of years back, I made/sewed Lorelai this bunny. It’s not your standard bunny stuffed animal… this one has more of an artistic flare which you know I like. At the time, she was too young to really understand what I made her. Today she rediscovered it. It fell off of the shelf in […]

{ Mommy Gushing }

"Unicorn" by Lorelai

I don’t talk about Lorelai’s “achievements” as often as I like. I mean, I do mention things here and there, but I keep my lips zipped more often than not because I don’t want to come off as bragging. But you know what? If she does something awesome, it should be acknowledged, so let me […]

{ When All’s Quiet… }


When all is quiet, I worry. Like the time I came out of the bathroom to find her elbow deep in the fishtank trying to pet the fish. The last time it was quiet, make-up was applied. No, scratch that. The last time all was quiet, she had greased her arms and legs up with […]

{ Potty Yay! }

One thing I can admit to slacking big-time on with Lorelai is potty training. I’ve been trying to get her trained, on and off, for about 6 months now. We’ll start, she’ll make a little headway, and then we’ll go back into pull-ups. Right before our trip to MD, I decided to hold off on […]

{ Sebastian }


Attempt #2 at keeping a fur-baby, LOL! We were walking down the steps outside of our door to go grocery shopping when Lorelai spotted a kitten at the bottom. Being the animal lover that she is, she pulled her hand out of mine and practically ran down the steps. The kitten spotted her and met […]

{ Wucking Heavy }

A little bit of the conversation Lorelai and I had yesterday: Me: Lorelai, please take your baby bed in your room. Her: I can’t, Mommy, it’s wucking heavy! Time to start watching my mouth!

{ Lesson Funny }

Last night in a last ditch attempt to keep Lore occupied so that M and I could get some stuff done, we pulled out the block box from the closet. She played by herself for a good 20 minutes and then was begging M to go build a tower with her. He went over, sat […]

{ Teaching Animal Sounds }

Lorelai was 14-ish months here and she knew all of the basic animal sounds. She had some animal picture books and my mom and I would “read” to her by going through and telling her what the animals “say”… she caught on very quickly. Working with your children doesn’t mean that you’re shoving stuff down […]
