Kale Chip's

I have tried to make these kale chips before. I always burn them. This time it came out pretty good.

- Rinse and dry your kale
-Preheat the oven 275 degrees
- Put your kale in a big bowl and sprinkle salt and olive oil over it until the leaves are coated.
- Take a flat pan add your kale. Leave a  little space between each leaf.
-Put in the oven for 20 minutes then flip it over and bake another 20 minutes.  Total 40 minutes
Enjoy your kale chips

Hugs, Parents,Life

You need 4 hugs a day for survival. We need 8 hugs a day for maintenance. We need 12 hugs a day for growth.
                  -Virginia Satir
 
I'm forever hugging my kid's.  I read, write, teach them how to live in this big place called life. I'm shocked at how many people think being a Stay At Home Mom means laying on your ass all day. Talking to a few mom's myself this Friday after story time with Popsicle. 
A mommy made a comment " I wish I had that kind of time!" It was like she was making a jab at me? Yes, She was I was shocked.  All five of us were stay at home moms.  We all have the same amount of minutes in a day. We all get the same amount of hours in a day. My hubby and I always get compliments on how well behaved and how polite our boys are. I love it. That means we are doing half a decent job. I hardly ever hear a parent say please and thank you to their kids. We do if we ask them to do something.  My hubby works some mad hours still has time to play. We don't sit in front of the Television or Computer all day. We make our kids enjoy life. They love the ocean it's like our second home. However they don't swim in it anymore my bad we watched Shark Week. With all the recent attacks it's safer in the sand. I spend quality time with my boys. They come first in my life before my work or hubby. He feels the same if he didn't we wouldn't be  married. That has been our number one goal in life. To make a better life for our children to give them a chance to become something great. They are already amazing in everything they do. I encourage them to do their best give their best. I can't do that for them they have to want to learn. I can only give them the tools to do the job. 
I let my boys be boys. They play they have a life of their own. I treat them as people.  I see a lot of parents treat their kids as if they don't exist.  It's sad kid's have feelings.  Thy are like us. A child will become what they see and hear from parents. If you continue to put something in their heads they will remember. 
My son play's the violin. I'm proud to be his mom. It was a pain in ass to get an instrument from the school. They wanted me to buy one. Like it was nothing I'm not made out of money. I have no problem with that if he plays.  If he still plays by the end of the year then we will talk. So far so good.

 
In his short life he has accomplish a lot. It makes my hubby and I happy we are able to give him that chance. It bugs me to No end when I hear working or not parents say they don't have time to play with their kids. In fact you do it's 99 percent for your kids and that one percent is for you. If you have kids that's how it should be in my opinion. If parents took the time to turn off the TV get off the phone turn off the computer pick up a toy and play. They would get to know their kids. It's very important that you are happy to know you are giving your kids 99percent of your time. With that said Please remember
 
  You need 4 hugs a day for survival. We need 8 hugs a day for maintenance. We need 12 hugs a day for growth. Tell your kids you love them go outside ride a bike play football do something. They will remember that inside of how much money you have. I have been both a full-time working parent and a stay at home mommy. I work from home and love it. At times it gets hard but if you really want something you will make time for it.

Pins, Likes and Crafts

 
I love this little craft it has been a huge help learning colors with Popsicle. With 491 repins a lot of others like it as well.  Popsicle likes to hide them all over the house then we have to find them like hide and seek. I let him tell me the color as if I don't know it. He laughs at me like Mom you can do it. I have faith in you. I always encourage him in everything when he uses my same words it melts my heart. Another game we like to play is the same above just with Legos. He loves Legos! This game takes up an hour if not more. We lose track of time because we are having fun. I love this age when he learns something his face just lights up. With him being the baby I'm taking it all in. I won't get these moments back. Play with your kids live it up. There are plenty more on my Pinterest page check it out.
