So I have made a commitment to be more of a real blogger. Tell you about great deals but also tell you about my life. If you have read my blog for any amount of time at all you might have noticed I have a bit of a dyslexic mind. No matter how much I reread and edit there are always a few mistakes that slip into my post. I am an adult so I own my issues. It is who I am and has made me who I am.
When I was a child I did not own my issues. I was embarrassed. Kids made fun of me because I had to go to a "special" class for help. I could go on a rant about how bad the school system was for kids like me in the 70's and 80's before the world of IEPs and 504's but I will spear you.
So now fast forward 27 years and I have kids with a lot of my same issues. It has taken us years to find the right school situation for our oldest son. We have found a good school situation for him and he is blessed by teachers who love and understand him. I was blessed by God's timing to make it to my son's awards program on the last day of school and these are the words his teacher said about him while giving him the Best Student Award... " My, dad always told me good manners would get you everywhere in life. The student who is getting my Lead Mentee Award is the most polite student I have every taught. I trust this student 100%. My Lead Mentee is Logan."
Why am I telling you all this? Well, because now is the time to take your child's report and get FREE goodies.
Here is a list of places I have tested in Lexington, KY and know the programs work.

Yesterday, I wrote about who I am. "Motherhood"Today in honor of Mother's Day I will write about being a daughter. My mom and grandmother have always thought I hung and spun the moon. I have always been bright, funny, smart, and stylish in their eyes. I am a daughter of divorce parents. My dad shaped my life but only in the bits and slices of times I spent with him. When I think about being a daughter I think of being my mother's daughter.
So on Mother's Day I will take my mom to get a great meal at LaRosa's.

Yesterday I wrote about who I am. "I am a blessed girl. My life is never boring. Here is who I am: I am a Christian wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, military wife, special education mom, volunteer and a crazy dyslexic mind..." So for the next few days I will take one part of my life and tell you something I have learned that might help you. I am not a know it all smartie pants. I have all kinds of flaws. Any tips are me just living my life out loud and Thanking God for the wisdom that comes with age. A few years ago we were cutting our family budget and got ride of cable. The kids were very upset at the thought of no cable but they soon got over their lack of cable. If you have internet access at home you can watch just about everything you want from on an over the air antenna, Netflix, Hulu, phone and iPod/iPad apps and a million other ways. It is funny how you see the world at different points in your life. When Malcolm in the Middle first aired I saw everything from the view point of Malcolm. I laughed, cried, and felt his pain of life as a young teen and not fitting in at school. Now my kids have watched Malcolm in the Middle on Netflix and I see the show from the view point of Lois. It is like it is not even the same show. I laugh, cry and scream with Lois. I feel her pain for wanting to help her kids and not really knowing how. I feel her pain for a crazy messing house that nobody ever seems to care about the mess other than her. Job 32:7 is a great verse for what I have learned by re-watching Malcolm in the Middle with my kids, I thought, 'Those who are older should speak, for wisdom comes with age. So what is my wisdom. Save money and dump your cable bill, sit down and watch TV with you kids.
Hello My SMASHing friends,
I had lunch the other day with my friends and fellow bloggers Hallee at Hallee The Homemaker and Amy at The Happy Homemaker
We were talking about blogs, life, God, family, Childhood Cancer, Special Education, Military Life and so much more. Hallee and Amy were encouraging me to be more open with my blog and tell my story. I have a lot of stories to tell.
So over the summer I will be working on my blog. I will always tell you about SMASHing deals but I will also start telling you about the rest of my life. I am always so blessed by learning from people who have walked my path before me. So, I am hoping my path will be a blessing to someone.
Here is a peek into my world. Today before 11:00am I took two kids to school with flowers in hand for Teachers Appreciation Day, went to a school band concert, went on a walking field trip to Domino's Pizza with Baylor's Kindergarten class, lost my keys in the school parking lot, found my keys in the office thanks to a good soul who turned them in, and talked on the phone to my hubby who is deployed with the Kentucky National Guard to Africa.
What is on tap for this afternoon? I have to return a phone call to a retired police captain about the safety of our local parks, pick up a book from the library before I have left it on hold too long and have to pay a fee, take Elise to swim coaching and Baylor to t-ball. And in there I guess I need to feed kids dinner, do laundry, take the dog for a walk and chat with Loge IV.
I am a blessed girl. My life is never boring. Here is who I am: I am a Christian wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, military wife, special education mom, volunteer and a crazy dyslexic mind. So these are the things I will blog about. I hope I can be the right person in your path. God is good all the time and I have been blessed by the people in my path. Pin It
