My Stick People Family

I am currently obsessed with the cars that have the vinyl stick people family on their back windows. They are too cute! I know most people hate them, and yeah its annoying to some. But, I absolutely adore them! Ever since becoming a “mom” I am in love with “mom” things! Today my daughter was invited to my friends sons first birthday party! All I did was talk mom things. Diapering, naps, tantrums, to my sex life as a mom. Its been a great transition in my life having kids. Truly has made a better person! My kids are my life and I believe I was made to be a mother. I have a few friends who never want to be a mom. That seems sooo weird to me since I don’t even know what my life was like before kids. Yes, I do miss the occasional bar time and being spontaneous when it comes to plans but, I wouldn’t change it for anything. I just recently became a stay at home mom and I would say this job is the most difficult decision I have ever made. We don’t have money coming in like before (not like I made much) but it did pay a bill or two. I will gladly quit the cable and eat in more just to save a buck! Wish I knew more couponing.. anyone know how to?? Message me!! I could always use the help! So back to my stick people family. I was looking at the newspaper ads and saw the jewelry that has stick people. I am not really a jewelry person but have always wanted aka: a mothers ring/ necklace! I pointed hinting… Mothers Day is coming up soon! He said will the stick people for your car work! I almost died!! I didn’t think he knew I loved them soo much! Well, here’s to hoping in my future soon I too could have a stick people family!

Handmade Wipes!

So here is a recipe that I have to make homemade wipes. They are just as good as the normal wipes you buy from the store. I actually hate Pampers wipes because of the chemicals that react or mix with my childs urine. It makes me gag! So in the end I chose to do this also to save money but because of the smell. They leave my hands really soft!! They are just wonderful!

Recipe Ingredients:

1 paper towel

container with good seal

1 tablespoon baby oil

1 teaspoon baby soap

2 cups water

knife to cut the paper towel (preferably non serated)

1. cut the paper towel in half doesnt have to be perfect you wont see the cut side mainly

2. mix the rest of the ingredients in the container

3. place paper towel in container with cut side down

4. put lid on container

5. flip it over until the paper towel is completely soaked with mixture

6. pull out the brown roll and pull the middle up

7. Viola! You have wonderful handmade wipes!!

I hope they save you money and work for you as much as they did me!
