"P" is for....Princess

We were through having kids when God surprised us with this... A Princess!!
All three of my children are wonderful and a true blessing. I am not partial to Lizzie nor do I love her more, but I do seem to be enjoying her more.


I wish when Reagan and Jake were young I would have taken the time to played with them more, read with them more, just flat enjoyed them more. I was a young mom when they were young - I was a busy working mom that had things to do - dad gum it!! I wish I would have known then what I know now - Don't sweat the small stuff, it all has a way of working out in the end anyway.


Yesterday we were doing a clean up because it is always nice to start Monday off with some semblance of order in the house. I gave Lizzie a job which made me cringe a little, but I need to let her start learning how to do bigger jobs, even if it means a bit of a mess for now. She had the window cleaner and a roll of paper towels. I looked over and see her trying to clean 20 squirts of cleaner with one very damp, soaked paper towel on the French doors.
Me: "Hey, baby, you might want to pull 3 or 4 off of the roll to use at once on those doors."


Lizzie: "Have you ever heard of WASTE?"
Me: "Well, sometimes, when you are cleaning, you need a little bit more. You are not wasting it if you are actually using them for something." (I guess the over excessive spray was NOT wasteful to a 7 yr old thinking...)



Lizzie: Holding the paper towels over her head and glaring at me from across the room, "MOM, do you know they make these things out of TREES?!"

We KNOW this child is a princess when her momma gives her an indoor beach party!! I still can't get over that.
Tell Lizzie you can reuse paper towels that you use on windows by drying them and then using them for wiping up spills or stuff the pets get on the floor. That is recycling and it also allow us to support our logging industry. Loggers are generally some of the best conservationists.

Today's kids are more environmentally aware than their parents - we can learn a lot from them.

By the way, I don't know if you saw my response to your comment, but you may have misunderstood my post. It wasn't against religion or prayer, it was just about playing with the idea of the sign if you took it literally and don't use common sense. Even the most deeply religious can believe we were given brains for a reason.

The other drawback with the questionnaire is that there are two questions in one question, this is evident from the use of the word “and” in the questions, a research question in a questionnaire should not contain two question and thi9s is avoided by not using and in the question, this is evident from question 15 and 7, the problem with the two questions is that the respondent is not sure which question to answer and this leads to biasness in responses given. vpn client on ipad
