I am never in the running for Mother of the Year, but I try to make sure my kids know they are loved even if I am simultaneously prepping their delicate minds for years of therapy as adults. For instance, I give my kids the choice between carrying a bag lunch or buying. Surprisingly, one of my three kids wants me to make lunch every day and another prefers it on occasion. I try to drop a lunch note in when I think about it as well.
My lunch notes are boring because I am too groggy in the morning to do better than "I love you!" or "Have a great day!" on a torn off corner of notebook paper. There are a ton of printables online that do the work for me, but I found them a little bit too cheesy and disingenuous. I decided to write my own sincere notes (that I promise I will not actually put in my kids' lunches). My husband will totally get his note, though. I'm no saint.
Bottom Line: A safe and ad-free way for children to view top YouTube videos of favorite characters and songs, such as Elmo, Frozen, Lalaloopsy and more. And it's FREE! No more searching for videos online. Parents can set age limits and viewing times to limit access. Internet connection is needed to view videos.
Most of my social media time over the past few years has been spent on Facebook, but I've been spending a lot more time on Twitter recently and have realized how many extremely talented writers are out there.
I can't get through my timeline without bursting into laughter a few times or stopping to think about a thing or two. Here are some of my recent favorites. Enjoy!
