Sorry that the blog has been lacking lately – life is busy and so when we have a minute and think of something worth sharing we will!

Spell Check

Ok who invented Spell check??? I am thinking this person is brilliant! If you type constantly as we do - Spell check is a godsend! I like to think that I am a decent speller - mainly because growing up my dad was a horrible speller and he would always ask me how to spell words- I made it my mission to give him the correct spelling on every word he asked! Anyway on to Spell check even if you are the perfect speller - it can't hurt to use it we are human and do make simple mistakes! Here are a few of my personal favorite spelling errors that I actually have seen people make!
Not only spelling errors but using the wrong spelling for the context. Example: It's vs. its, their vs. there, hear vs. here, breaks vs. brakes, our vs. are, thyme vs. time, weather vs. whether, to vs. too!

Incorrect Correct

definately definitely

ok so now you have it - my pet peeve! If we EVER spell a word wrong in our post please please please tell us! :) THANKS!

Manic Mondays

Finally Friday!

Our kids say the darnest things... my daughter is going to be three in a few months and talks like she is 13 - Actually Mom, Really!?, I need that!, OMG, that's WEIRD!, (that is definitely something I say) and so many more phrases I can't believe! But what about us Moms?? How do you know you are a mom?

When you are half way to work and realize that you have been listening to your toddlers CD and are singing along!

You consider the person who invented the Sippy Cup a genius!

You would trade in your life savings for one solid night of sleep.

When your child is screaming or throwing a fit you attribute it to no nap or illness.

You have the pediatrician’s office on speed dial.

You consider parenting the best job in the world.

Make it a great weekend! Spend some quality time with your family!
