I was minding my business scrolling the internet today when I came across a post about Target brand Cat & Jack warranty. And had my mind BLOWN!
I think when most people think of affirmations they think of adults. I usually start my day off with positive affirmations for myself, I share affirmations online in my communities and I check out some on social media. I got into the habit of affirming myself daily when a friend started sharing them daily on Facebook. When RJ started preschool our schedule became very different. Mornings were now a rush most days but I never wanted him to start his day with overwhelm. I began having him repeat affirmations on our walks to school and he still says them to himself now. Positive affirmations for children don’t have to be complicated. You start off with things that are simple enough for them to understand, and then you they can develop them over time. Here are 15 positive affirmations for children that are easy to understand.
Crafts are pretty big in my house. Being a mama of a kindergartener and a toddler I am always looking for something to keep them busy. My oldest is not a big fan of coloring but if something involves glue, paint or popsicle sticks then he is all in. With fall being one of my favorite seasons and Halloween being the favorite holiday (next to Christmas) we will be crafting up in here all October long. I compiled an easy roundup of Halloween crafts that are super easy for kids.
It is finally officially summer in NYC! School just ended on June 26th so I had weeks and weeks to watch sadly as everyone else started their summer without us. People have already gone on week long summer vacations and here we are at only day 2 of our summer. Like everybody, summer is a different dynamic in this house. We go from 1 to 2 children home all day. The boys are too young for summer camp, cabin fever is real and they are usually on their 85th fight by 10am. Meanwhile mama is just trying to enjoy the fact that we finally can go with the flow. But alas these little people have no chill. So how do you find free or inexpensive summer activities for toddlers?

I’m gonna admit it ya’ll. I’ve become one of THOSE parents. The parent that’s wondering why all these unaccompanied children are crowding the inside and outside of the store. I’m side-eyeing the junior high kids using “bad words”. The parent that is watching and listening to every single thing that other people’s kids are doing. I can’t help it. I’m protective of our children. So more than I’m annoyed about the fact that they’re in the way while my 4 year old is trying to put his little dollar on the counter for his juice and chips. I’m annoyed that while they’re in there minding their business and buying up the whole store they’re exposed to tobacco products at every freakin’ turn. I’ve SEEN ENOUGH TOBACCO!.
