Here comes a RANT!

I finally have my new computer back! I had it for 3 months… the hard drive died. NOT COOL. It gets sent back to Samsung and A MONTH later I have a working computer in my hands. Except……. it is not the same as it was. There are all sorts of things missing. Urg. Back to Future Shop I go!

ANYWAYS! I am not here to rant about my computer. I am going to rant about lego. My sweet, imaginative, creative four year old LOVES to build. So we bought him some “Big Boy” lego (the real lego that is small). The first thing that I noticed when looking at the lego aisles, is that it all comes in sets. Pretty cool EXCEPT what was once the ultimate imagination toy is now something that robs you of your creativity by telling you what to make with it and how to do it! My little guy was in tears because he couldn’t follow the instructions to create the picture that he was supposed to make with the lego. It took me quite a while to convince him that he could make whatever he wanted.

My advice. Buy the lego, throw out the box and the instructions BEFORE you give it to your child. Let them decide what to make, let them use their imagination to create boats, and cars, and castles, and pirate palaces!lego1

Not too Shabby Home Decor

I LOVE SAHM/WAHM companies and products! There are so many amazing women out there that are juggling both kids and creating that I am going to try and blog about them every week!

This week I want to bring to your attention a LOCAL mom who is making the most beautiful signs for your home!
Handmade shabby chic wooden home decor are made from recycled or reclaimed wood. They are
lovingly stenciled and antiqued by hand, and you are now able to get custom names, quotes and colours! These are some pics of my favorites from her facebook page.
