I let my son play with dolls!

Each year many kids/teens think about suicide, and even more sadly commit it. Half of the kids who do commit this are a result of bullying. Now their is many reasons why kids/teens get bullied but one thing is common, these kids learned it form some place!! If a kid looks different, if they speak different, if a girl likes boy toys, if a boy likes girl toys. These are all reasons why kids get bullied among many others. This closed minded way of thinking is sad to see now and days. I would like to think we all grew above these standers of thinking boys playing with dolls will make them gay or that girls who like batman are not "normal", but we haven't. 
Recently a lady who I do not know made a comment over my son's toes being painted blue. My son is 3 and loves to be just like his big sister and so what if he wants his toes painted blue?, this doesn't make him any less of a boy. This does not make him "weird" or not "normal". I never set up stereotypes with my kids and I refuse too. A boy that plays with dolls might or might not become gay but that has nothing to do with what they choose to play with and that's not what we should be worrying about. We should be worrying about them growing up as outstanding, amazing, confident, and helpful members of society. The only thing that is for sure when my son plays with dolls is that he will learn to care for a baby and be a good big brother, dad, uncle, or cousin.
"Grown ups" please do grow up and listen to what you are teaching you'r kids. Bullying is still on the rise.

Organizing for summer cheap!

Recently I made my way to my local dollar store(same as Poundland in UK) and I am so happy I did. There was so many bins and buckets in many colors. So here is how I cleaned up my kids summer toys. For small balls, chalk, and bubbles I grabbed 3 small bins as seen above. For water toys I grabbed a big blue bin and I made sure all bins I bought had holes rather they were for wet toys or not. We got small bugs in our storage room and I am hoping the holes would kept bugs from setting up home in the bottom of the bins. Some other ideas we like to use but have not yet are... Trash bin for bigger balls or large shoe rack works too Clothes hamper for pool toys & Mesh bag for sand toys Before we really even got some what organized we use to use crates but I found that with many kids going threw creates to find certain toys it quickly got messy so I really like the idea of having bins for certain toys. I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…

Fizzing planets

I am sure I said this before but this really was one of my personal favorite actives. It came out amazing and my son loved it. Would for sure do this again. 
So it is simply called fizzing planets. You mix a little bit of water in baking soda and add food coloring to color it like the planet you choose. I went by a simple google picture to color the planets and then I realized I got some wrong but we also had a book to look at and read to see some real colors.  Once you make your planets let them cry for a couple of hours. You can place them in the freezer to speed this up. 

Then slowly pour vinegar over the planets to see them fizz! It started to look like a Galaxy then in the end it ended up looking like one big planet.





So neat!
