Momee Friends Halloween Bash

Last week some Momee friends and I all headed to Seeds of Love in Bayshore for a fun afternoon.
A Halloween Bash for Momees and their little ones.

Mummy Juice Boxes

Yesterday we had a Momee Friends Halloween Party.

One of the crafty Momees made these adorable Mummy Juice Boxes that she had seen on Pinterest.

She used white electrical tape to wrap the juice boxes. Substitutions for the white electrical tape can be a roll of white streamers or gauze.

I really liked the white electrical tape, just make sure when your wrapping you don’t wrap the juice box too tight because once you put the straw in to drink the liquid will come out instantly and spill everywhere.

Once you have wrapped the juice box hot glue on wiggly eyes and you are done!

Such a cute idea and they were a huge hit at the party.

 

 

Mia’s First Pony Ride!

Mia and I went to the Animal Farm Petting Zoo with our close friends yesterday afternoon.

It was a beautiful day and figured we can not waste such a great afternoon so we headed to the Animal Farm Petting Zoo.

There is a lot of interaction between you and the animals here at The Animal Farm and it is a great place to visit.

Relax Bottle/Time Out Timer

This is a wonderful idea for a time out. Relaxing a child while in time out is a wonderful idea. Great Momees thinking of easy solutions Thank you My Crazy Blessed Life! : )

My Crazy Blessed Life!

Sooooo… I have a three-year-old little girl who is full of drama.  Probably not the only one in history, but one of my current dilemmas.  When time out time comes for bad behaviour I find myself with a little girl on the bottom step screaming, kicking walls and not able to even calm down enough to learn her lesson.  This was getting worse and worse until I told my husband, “there has to be a better way, I’m going to research this.”  So I went online and read other mom’s advice, dr’s advice, psychologist’s advice, etc.  Nothing was really working.  Finally I saw something called a mind jar.  This was a mason jar filled with water, clear gel glue and ultra fine glitter.  You shake it and the glitter settles slowly as you watch you relax.   The original ones I saw were to teach children to meditate (not my goal).  I loved…
