“April showers bring may flowers.” Well,where are the flowers?! Just a few days ago,my kids were running through the sprinklers in their swimsuits,looking into the robin’s nest to check out the three turquoise eggs,and running barefoot in the grass until their feet were green! Today,I sent them to school in their winter coats and turned my furnace back on. Let’s plan some fun activities for this wacky spring!
Cinco de Mayo is a great time to have a fun family travel night! What is a family travel night? Gather the family together for a fiesta! Get a few children’s books about Mexico and their culture,dress in festive sambreros,shake some maracas, and create a menu that tastes muy bien like a delicious Enchilada Stack or homemade salsa!
Mother’s Day is coming May 12th and it is one of my favorite holidays. Not only am I a mom of three adorable kiddos,but I get to honor my mom as I am beginning to understand the sacrifices and love she unconditionally gave to me as a youngster. She kept everything so organized and dedicated to our activities. I’m not there yet. There are many days I am busier than a bee yet accomplished nothing on my to-do list! Here is a fun poem for all the busy moms out there!
Need a yummy treat for that Mother’s Day brunch? Try these delicious,warm,gooey,and sweet Simple Sticky Buns!
Mom always kept our handmade gifts we would bring home and I would be so embarrassed by the sloppy craftsmanship. Now I’ve been given the construction paper flowers,handprint paintings,and crafts oozing with Elmer’s glue. I treasure the love that was put into it,not the lack of perfection just like my mom.
Spring is the season of growing…the grass,the leaves on the trees,and my kiddos!! They seem to have sprouted overnight and need an entirely new spring wardrobe. Check out TaLooLa Kids’Spring Collection in our shop at taloolakids.etsy.com for:
spring themed ruffled shirts,
or walk on the wild side with a dinosaur shirt.
Enjoy Mother Nature’s mood swings and have a happy May!
