My Funny Valentine: A Tribute to Preschool Valentines

Since the introduction of Pinterest a few years back moms everywhere have felt inspired in all areas of life.  One of these areas is school valentines. Unfortunately, my child started preschool right at the start of this, last year.  I couldn't let him go to his preschool Valentine's Day Party without a cute and clever Valentine.  I was able to find the cutest and simplest valentine card.

All that it required was cutting a sponge into the shape of a heart, dabbing it in some paint, and voila! It was easy and fun for my son.
I would love to get a little more creative this time around, but I do like the simplicity of last year's card.  I may just do it again.

Here are some super cute ideas that I was able to track down on Pinterest. What will you be doing for your child's class?

 Heart Crayons
 "I'm glad we are in the same school."

"Owl always love you!"

A New Beginning

I've been here before.  Determined to continue on a new journey with this blog.  Feeling energized as ever and ready to take on the blogosphere.  Well, here it goes again.  I remember a time when I just had one child.  I was convinced that I knew everything there was to know about babies.  So, I started a blog.  Why not share my ever growing knowledge with the rest of the world.  Or at least those who were willing to listen?

That was until child number two made his appearance.  I couldn't keep up with the real world anymore, and everything I thought I knew about babies went out the window with that one.  I don't think I got more than four hours of sleep at a time with the second one.  It took it's toll and things I loved like sharing on this blog fell behind.

I wish I had stuck with it.  It took a little nudging from my husband to remind me to find something for myself.  Here I am, 4 months into my THIRD pregnancy finding myself without a passion.  Sure, my kids are my passion.  I love reading.  But there needs to be more.  I want somewhere to go that is my own.  Something to do while the kids are napping to save a little piece of me.  Hence, why I come back to this blog.

It has been about four years since I started it.  I have learned a lot and grown even more as a person and a parent.  I hope I can make this new journey and continue with more than before.  I could always use some advice, though.  Are blogs better when they keep on tune with only one aspect of life, say for instance, children.  Or is it okay to talk about everything of interest?  I sure do love interior design and fashion just as much as I love Kids.  So, what do you all think?
