Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend. – Albert Camus
You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams. – Dr. Seuss
“A woman is like a tea bag; you never know how strong it is until it’s in hot water.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

When it comes to parenting, we all have our opinions. Spanking vs. No Spanking. Co-sleeping vs. Crying it out. Cloth vs. Disposable. Formula vs. Breast. Yeah, there’s a lot of decisions to make and wade though.
One seemingly innocent parenting skill, is to count to three. The purpose of which is that if your child doesn’t respond within that count, an appropriate punishment would be handed out. Unfortunately, there is one major pitfall to this method plus a scary possibility. Let’s start with the pitfall.
We all know that before the age of five, children absorb and learn faster and easier than at any age. Repetition and patterns teach us better than anything else. Ever watched a children’s educational program? They repeat the same numbers, letters, colors, etc. over and over throughout the same program because it helps it to stick.
Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are. – Chinese Proverb
At the end of May I started getting exercise. Not just “more” exercise but “some” exercise! For the last several years I’ve been really good at holding my computer chair in place. All that that has accomplished is to make me severely out of shape and unhealthy.
I began with water aerobics for an hour and within a week I added walking for a half hour. I’m now walking about 1.7 miles a day and I hope to increase it to 2.5 by the end of July. Being very obese, walking isn’t very easy or enjoyable.
In order to make walking a little more palatable, I challenge myself to find one interesting or beautiful picture. Sometimes I find several in one day. Sometimes I find weird things that I doubt anyone else would be interested in.
Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting some on yourself. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
I love how summer just wraps it’s arms around you like a warm blanket. – Kellie Elmore
It’s summertime. A time for rolling down hills, playing in sandboxes, swinging to new heights and jumping into lakes. So much fun for everyone. No matter what age, most of us can’t wait to play. There are mountains to climb, sand castles to be built and meadows to explore.
All of these exuberant activities keep us a young at heart and provide ample opportunities for bumps, bruises, scrapes, burns, cuts, blisters, stings and so much more. It’s a wonder we actually keep going back for more! But we’re humans with natural curiosities to indulge.
Well, if we’re going to indulge ourselves, we might as well be prepared.
Thanks to the folks at Influenster I recently received a complimentary Neosporin Neo To Go! in my TLCVoxBox for product testing and review. I decided it was an excellent time to redo/update my First Aid Kit. I thought perhaps other people might have use of the useful list I put together as well.
The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart. – Elizabeth Foley
