Beautiful Saturday

So I was planning on doing some shopping at Target today but it is so beautiful today. It is like 68 and so sunny that we are going to take a family trip to park. The first one for little Mo. I hope everyone enjoys their Saturday and time with their families. I will share a little funny story before we leave though.

So we call our youngest daughter Mo-Hox. I was looking through old photos to hang up and we found one of Kyra as a baby. So Pete says to her “O look Kyra you had a Mohawk”,.She looks him and says “No Daddy that is not Mo-Hox that is me Kyra the Princess”. It made me laugh so hard I almost cried. I am so lucky to have such wonderful girls.

I Want My Kids to Fail

I Want My Kids to Fail.

I found and read this interesting article today. I have to say that I agree. I want my children to fail. Not all of the time but every once in a while. I do not want my children to grow up in a fantasy land. They need to learn that there are hardships in life and that life just plain isn’t fair sometimes. Obviously I want the best for my girls and want them to be happy but they a little disappointment never hurt anyone.

Saving Money On Books – 5 Books For $2.13

I believe that there is so much more to being frugal than simply using coupons. I hardly ever pay full price for anything. On the rare occasion that I have to it just breaks my little heart. My oldest daughter loves to be read to and I am trying to get her into a bed time routine which includes a nightly story. If my daughter is anything like your kids they probably rip out the pages and sometimes use them as a coloring book. Now you may just say that is free to go to the library but I admitley am not good at returing them on time and I have to pay full price for a fee that my daughter decided to ruin.

So I found some thrift stores in and around Boise that have very cheap kids books. I went today to the Idaho Youth Ranch on Overland Blvd and purchased these five books for only $2.13. Some of the books in there are not in the best condition but majority of them are like new. So here is what I got:

  • Princess and The Snarls (Brand New) – Goes for $20.95 on – I paid $1.25
  • I Know An Old Lady…. (Excellant Used Condition) – Goes for $6.99 on – I paid $0.25
  • Coloring Book On The Five Senses (Brand New) – $1.95 Price on it – I paid $0.13
  • A Care Bare Book (excellant Used Conditon) – $5.99 Price on it – I paid $0.25
  • Bear Want More (Brand New) – Goes for $12.23 on – I Paid $0.25

The total retail for these books = $48.11

I paid $2.13

Total Saving Of $45.98 or 96%



I went and picked up the Valentine’s Day pictures I had taken of the girls last month. It shocked me to see how much Morgan has grown in the last four weeks. It makes me joyful and sad to see my baby growing up and changing so much. I am making a resolution to enjoy every possible moment I have with my children. They are only children for so long and I realize that I want to enjoy every minute.
