My Granddaughter Loves Tim McGraw!

How cute is this!!! My little four month old granddaughter, G5, loves Tim McGraw’s song, “Humble and Kind.”  Whenever she’s fussy or crying her mom plays the song for her and she calms right down.  Sometimes she is so comforted that she falls fast asleep while other times she sings along.  Check out her cute video on the lmbhf Facebook page HERE!   Please like & share:

Back to School – Is Your Child MENTALLY Prepared?

I’ll never forget the day I delivered my youngest daughter Tarrin (Tara) to her second grade classroom.  We had planned and prepared for this day.  She was adorable in her new outfit!  Her shiny new backpack was packed with just purchased school supplies.  We’d talked about school starting every day for the last couple of weeks, we’d spent the previous evening making preparations and gotten into bed early.  We’d gotten up early and had a good breakfast breakfast, we’d delivered her…

Kid’s Lemonade Stand

One of summer’s big problems is bored kids!  Mother’s live in fear of hearing those dreaded words, “Mom, I’m bored!”   Mom’s often respond with words that are equally dreaded by kids, “I can find chores for you to do” or “why don’t you read a book?”  That’s not what they want to hear!  Kids just wanna have some summer fun and excitement!

Staying Close to Far Away Grandkids

Do you have children that you love, who don’t live close to you?  Many of us have grandchildren, or nieces or nephews or children of whom we have shared custody.  It’s often difficult to stay close to those far away littles that We love so dearly!  For me it is two of my grandchildren, G1 and G3, who don’t live close to me right now.
