In honor of this smiling horse, and because yesterday’s pun tanked (guess most of you have never heard ‘what came first, the chicken or the egg?’)... today I’m sharing a horse joke. 🐎 
Once upon a time there was a rich man that was driving past a farm, he looked over and saw a beautiful stallion standing in the field. The rich man thought, ‘Wow I gotta have him’ so he pulled into the farm’s entrance. He found the owner and said, “I want that horse out yonder in that field. How much do you want for him?” The farmer said, “He don’t look to good.” “Nonsense” said the rich man “I’ll pay you $1000 for him.” “But he don’t look to good,” said the farmer. The rich man sighed and said, “$2000 dollars is my final offer.” The farmer sold the beautiful horse to the rich man. One week later the rich man came back angry as ever and said, “Darn you, you sold me a blind horse!” Then the farmer smiled and said, “I TOLD YOU HE DIDN’T LOOK TOO GOOD!!!!” .

One thing I regret is not having newborn photos taken of all three girls. I’ve looked back at Falynn’s photos so many times over the years and they still give me all the feels. We were so blessed to have been able to have them taken by @jenpriesterphotography. Jen is so talented and really the sweetest person. I am forever grateful that she made the trip from Michigan to Florida to capture these for us. Did you have professional newborn pictures taken of your kids?

Let’s talk about photo editing. There are so many people on IG that I admire, when it comes to their editing and photography styles… @theautismcafe, @momsinknots, @taramoon and @dearauggie, just to name a few. I’m constantly trying to learn, grow and improve my photos. So I thought it would be fun to take an older photo and edit it again, just to see the changes in my own personal style. Swipe to see the original edit from earlier this year. Not a huge difference, but I do notice slight improvements. Which do you prefer? Do you tend to gravitate toward the darker or brighter feeds?

Halloween is over, so we can start talking about Christmas now, right?! 🙌🏻 The holidays are usually a blur for me. Between decorating, cooking and prepping the house, its non-stop. It’s hard not to feel overwhelmed when you add in our everyday chores as parents. I think it’s important to keep the kids occupied with something that you can use, instead of sitting them in front of a screen. Plus, it’s great to encourage your little one’s creativity. We love to choose a few projects every year and have the girls create our holiday décor. They love that we proudly display their projects and they make a great gift for your guests or their school friends! This year, we are excited to share our first Christmas craft idea, the snowman jar! What do you think?

Trigger warning: Abduction 
Courageous is not the first adjective I'd use to describe myself. I don't open up easily, especially when it comes to traumatic events in my life. But what blogging has taught me, is that writing can be cathartic. It can free us of the fear we hold onto. So I write. Mostly for me and my mental health. I don't always share the posts. I have over 20 drafts that will probably never be published. But there are some subjects that are important enough to share, so that other people don't make the same mistakes I do.  This particular situation has taken me almost twenty five years to talk about. Very, very few people, family or friends, have heard this story. I think it was something that I tucked away because I was ashamed of myself and afraid of what might have been. Let me start by saying, I knew better. I was raised with common sense and knew the dangers of the world. So the decisions I made on this particular night weren't something I was proud of, let alone, wanted to share with people... until now. One of the scariest nights of my life, which only seemed fitting to share on Halloween. I hope you’ll take a moment to visit the blog and read about the night I was almost abducted.

Why You Should Add Childish Charm to Your Family Home

If You Love It, Share It!

If you have kids or will be starting a family then you’ll want to think about how your home can fit around the needs of a child. It’s incredibly important to consider things like how many bedrooms you have, how safe your home is and how much effort you need to put into decorations and renovations in order to provide your kids with a wonderful upbringing. So where do you start?

A Garden

Gardens are often underestimated when it comes to how much value they give your kids. From helping in the garden and learning about plants to having a secure place to roam around and enjoy themselves, gardens are incredibly important and must be taken into consideration when you want to give your kids a good childhood.

Take a look at this article from KidsVillage.com for tips on how to get your kids involved in gardening. It often starts with getting them involved with simple tasks such as watering the plants and mowing the lawn, but it goes beyond that. It can teach your kids about responsibility, it gives them a way to exercise and be productive, and it can also get your kids to eat more vegetables since they’re growing them.

Building your kids a backyard playground is also a fantastic way to get them more active. It’s a fun way to enjoy the garden, and it’s a great way to convince them to get some exercise without having to go to a park. Backyard playgrounds aren’t the most expensive things to install, but they do take quite a bit of time and effort.

A Playroom

Playrooms are important, but you don’t need to have a large room reserved for it and you can often include it within your child’s bedroom. A playroom usually consists of a couple of simple pleasures such as a large bean bag chair, games they can play and also areas to store study materials such as books. Reading is a fantastic hobby that you should encourage your kids to pick up a book every chance they get. Even having a little tent in your playroom can add some excellent charm and gives your children more ways to imagine and get creative.

If you have the space to afford it, then you can also add some personalized touches that allow you to join your kids. For instance, a large bean bag chair from SackDaddy.com is a great way to add your own little touch to the room, and you can get plenty of toys and games that you can enjoy with your kids. 

When your kids are still young, it’s important to ensure their safety in their playrooms. For instance, you’ll want to hide power sockets so that they don’t risk touching or playing with dangerous outlets, and you’ll want to install a childproof gate so that they don’t wander out of the play area either. Small things like sharp furniture corners can also be fixed by using rubber stoppers, so pay attention to the potential hazards in your child’s playroom.

A Stylish Bedroom

There are thousands of different ways to create a long-lasting and stylish bedroom for your kids. The themes involved can all depend on your child’s needs, and you can tailor them toward their tastes.

Since you may be changing your child’s bedroom on a regular basis, it’s a good idea to follow these tips to help you accommodate rapid decor arrangements.

  • Try and minimize the amount of furniture you use in your child’s bedroom. This will make it easier to move large pieces of furniture around (like their bed) which gives you easier access to the floors and walls. This means you can change up the wallpaper or paint, you can get different flooring and you can also replace their furniture in the future with larger varieties for when they grow older.
  • Stick with non-permanent solutions if you can. This means using wallpaper that is easy to remove, wall stickers that you can easily replace and also color schemes that you can change whenever you want.
  • It’s all about being modular. Modular bedroom designs are excellent because they allow you to change the way you plan your bedroom. For instance, storage can always be scaled up and upgraded for when your kids grow older, and bunk beds can serve multiple purposes. For instance, they can obviously be used as a bedroom that fits two of your children, but the bottom can also be replaced with a desk to provide more working space. 

Designing the ultimate bedroom for your kids is going to be a part of the childish charm in your home. It’s a fantastic way to make the dream home that you’ve always wanted and is easy once you’ve looked at some sources of inspiration. 

Having a study-like environment in their room is a fantastic way to get them to use computers more often. However, it’s good to keep in mind that there’s a big difference between using computers for leisure and using them to learn, so always look for productive ways to spend their screen time. A good example would be learning how to create art on their computer, or even using their computers to learn how technology works and research things like programming languages. 

Some children might find wallpapers of their favorite cartoon characters to be tacky, or they might change their favorites so often that you’ll have to constantly switch them around. Instead, you could always add some childish charm by adding decorations that are neutral when it comes to what they represent. For instance, adding space-themed decorations and having stars dangling could be a fantastic way to help your kids learn more about astronomy, or having different types of flower decorations could create a soothing and tranquil atmosphere for your kids to enjoy.

Some childish charm is essential for providing your kids with a fantastic environment that they can feel comfortable in, learn from and be proud of.

    Love the idea of adding childish charm! I think it’s what makes a house a home.

    Great ideas. My kids are starting to get older so I am in the process of transiting their “stuff” in the phase they are in now. Thank you for the wonderful ideas.

    I love these tips! We have three boys, so we definitely have some childish charm in our home. I especially love your tips for the bedroom. Limiting the big furniture is such a great idea, as is non-permanent solutions. As they grow, we definitely need to change things up.

    I love the idea of a garden! Some of my fondest memories growing up were picking tomatoes with my Papa! thanks for sharing!

    I love a home that gives you a feeling of the whole family. There are a lot of homes you walk in and you’d never know a kid lives there. I love feeling their presence as well and I love that you gave wonderful ideas on how to do that in a creative and stylish way still!

    I love this, I’ve never considered a more kid friendly décor but I will now. We have two granddaughters that spend a lot of time at our house and I think everyone would enjoy it.

    I wish we had a playroom, but our house isn’t big enough. My kids did decorate their bedrooms and my daughter does enjoy gardening and being outside.

    My kids love having a say in the decor of their rooms. I am actually planning on redecorating my daughter’s bedroom to reflect her older, more mature interests now.

    I love that bedroom! I agree with you that the childish charm is a great touch. Makes things cheerful and welcoming.

    I didn’t make my home kid friendly when my kids were born, other than sticking covers over the outlets, and putting locks on cabinets with poison. They were allowed to decorate their own rooms with whatever it was that pleased them, even if that means at the moment that my 12 year olds room is lined with barbie houses, and furniture.

  • Candy

    Playroom is perfect for this and we always made their bedrooms their own space. Add fairy garden for outside is fun as well.

  • Terri Steffes

    I love all your ideas! We always used our daughter’s art (framed) as pieces of art in our living room and etc. We still have some up today (and she’s 32.)

    I wish we had room for a playroom in our house. I think my kids would have loved that, but at least their bedrooms are big enough that they each have play areas.
