Who Cuter Puppies or Babies

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Puppies vs. Babies for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

We all know that the sight of a cuddly baby or a cute puppy makes hearts melt, but it's time America found out who is cuter in the online version of Puppies vs.Babies!   Puppies vs. Babies online contest  I believe that babies are cuter than dogs because they smell sweet, their skin is soft and not hairy, they have the cutest smile and they don't chew on your couch. My baby Z is cuter than any dog because she is very funny has a beautiful smile and a musical laugh. My baby Z  is cuter than a dog because she pets my face when I am sad. Whenever I come home,  she always give me a sweet smile!  And she doesn't get dog hair all over the house! I will take a baby over a puppy any day!

Everyone vote Puppies vs. Babies and let the world know who you think is cuter, a baby or puppy by November 23rd and have your say in who will be the top baby or puppy to win! The winning puppy or baby will get $5,000! Please let me know who you vote for by leaving a comment on this post.! Thanks

Autumn Squirrel Wreath Craft

I know I haven't posted anything about homeschooling in a long time so here is a craft for you, my children enjoyed it.
Things you need are:.
Ring of cardboard (empty cereal boxes work great)
yellow and orange construction paper

Trace a small plate and a large plate onto a piece of old cardboard.
Its okay if you go over the folds of the cardboard
Cut a small strip of cardboard and glue it onto the back of the ring over any folds in the cardboard.
This is for reinforcement of the ring.Cut strips of construction paper (about 1 1/2 inches by 4 inches). Glue the strips into rolls (like making a paper chain)
Glue the rolls of construction paper onto the wreath.We made a yellow and orange pattern, but you can do it as you wish.

Print out the template.I used brown construction paper.I cut it down to fit in the printer.

Glue the head, acorn and two paws on top of the wreath.
Glue the body, tail and two paws on the back of the wreath (so it looks like the squirrel is peeking over the top.

Being a Good Mom is Hard

Being a good mom is not an easy task. You have to Constantly put effort in it. What you did yesterday doesn't count for today, because more than likely your child forgot about what you did with them yesterday or even a earlier in the day.

For example my daughter always want me to play house with her all day and I say to her" honey I just played with you a while ago she replies" mommy I want you to play with me now please"

So every day try to do something with each of your children because once the day is gone it is gone forever!

The Best Gifts for Kids

Many Parents like to give their kids lots of toys for the Holiday's but I believe that the best toys are the ones that are educational. The best gifts for a child are books, because if you establish the love of reading in your children at a young age the love of reading will last a life time. Some of the most peaceful time that I have enjoyed with my kids are in a book store.

If you are looking for something to do with your child that won't cost a lot of money,going to the book store or library is the thing to do!  I personally prefer the book stores because it is more cheerful than the library and it smells batter as well!  This is a wonderful book that I found at the store today is called I Like Myself, by Karen Beaumont

It is a beautiful book! It will help your children learn the importance's of loving themselves.

Children are a blessing from God.They are so cute and pure and they bring me much happiness.

A lot people see children as a burden which is very sad. There are many children who are made to feel this way by their parents. When a child is made to feel unwanted and unloved their self-esteem becomes very low.They are often depressed and angry.

So parents please remember that a child has feelings just like you.Try to put your self in your child shoes and remember how you felt when you need your parents and they didn't make time for you.Remember how you felt when your parents degraded you.Parents please treat your children well.Don't be a cause of sorrow for your children.Because how you treat your child,now when they are small, is how they will treat you when they grow older.

Children Are Very Perceptive

Children are very perceptive and very intelligent.One can learn things about themselves and others threw children.Its very interesting that we as adults often believe that children don't have feeling because they are little. Some adults often get upset when a child express their opinion or their feelings.A child can often see thing that we as adults overlook.Children are so honest and pure.Which is something I love about children.

One time I was teaching this 3 year child social Skills and we were talking about all the people who loved her.She told me she thought that her mother,father,sister,cousin,and grandmother loved her,but when I asked her if she thought her grandfather loved her she said no because he talked very ugly.

I found it very amazing that she would notice that.This go's to show you that children are not just little people who's voice shouldn't be heard! Our children's feelings and thoughts should Matter very much to us.It should matter as much as an adults feeling!A child who is made to feel that they are important will grow to be a happy person.Children who aren't made to feel that they matter to their parents often grow up to be angry people!
