My 3 & 4 Year Olds Night Time Routine

This is my babies night time routine on most nights. It’ll change obviously when they’re sick or we’re out late but most of the time it goes just like this.

Hey guys, since I made a morning routine I thought I would make a night-time one now.

Hope you guys enjoy! 🙂

4:30-5:00PM

I’ll start on dinner, this night I made chicken with rice and avocado with tomatoes in lime.

We’ll pray for our food before we start to eat.

6:00-6:30PM

Then, once finished which Noah is usually done first then Lydia is always the last one done. They’ll both put their plates in the sink and I’ll clean the kitchen and wash the dishes. While I’m washing the dishes they’ll either play with daddy or watch a show.

Once I’m all done with the kitchen, its time to brush their teeth.

They first brush their own teeth and then I brush it for them. 🙂

7:00PM

Next, it’s usually time for bath time. I’ll usually take them a bath every other day or if that day they got really dirty.

I love these moments because I know that one day they’ll outgrow it and take a shower separately. These moments are something that I will always cherish. 🙂

This night I had to cut their nails. They love watching me cut their nails, they’ll just watch everything I’m doing. Hahaha

7:30PM

Then, we’ll head to their room and its time to read some books! They love to get under the covers in Noah’s bed together while we read books to them.

Every night when I say “Ok time to get ready for bed.” Noah will say “Are we gonna read books?” This is honestly one of his favorite times of the day. They love books so much, I love it.

Usually me and my husband will switch who reads to them and this night it was my turn. We’ll read to them at least 3 different books. I like to pick 2 fun/silly books and then a Bible story.

Once we’re done reading we’ll tell them to say Goodnight and give goodnight kisses to each other.

Once we’re done its time to pray.

My husband will pray with Lydia our daughter.

And I will pray with Noah our son.

As you can tell he was tired. Lol!

8:00PM

Then, its time for bed. We’ll tuck them in and turn the night lights on and give them good night kisses and wish them both sweet dreams.

That is all for their night-time routine, thank you for reading!

2018 Wishlist

Since its a New Year and have seen a couple bloggers post their wish list thought I would too. 🙂

img_7802img_7770

  1. New Purse. For a while now I’ve been wanting a bigger purse one specifically like the one in the picture. Brown and that has three separations because I sometimes still carry some stuff for my kids and I’d love to be able to separate it all.
  2. Slip-ons.  I’ve always loved toms and sandals, shoes that can go on quickly and these are really cute in a light color.
  3. BOOTS! Probably too late but I’d love to have some cute knee high boots. I used to have some that ripped and they were my favorite. I loved dressing in my knee high boots a nice top and a cardigan. Definitely my staple outfit 😉
  4. Crimper I think girls hair is so pretty when after they braid it and unfortunately my hair doesn’t really create those cute waves naturally because its so straight. So I’d love a crimper to be able to create those waves.
  5. Dainty Jewelry I love the look of really dainty necklaces and bracelets. I’d love to collect more throughout the year.
  6. Sandals Spring is around the coroner and then summer and definitely need to get some new cute sandals!
  7. Home Decor I’d love to invest in some nice decoration pieces for our bedroom, kids room and living area for when we move.
  8. Sunglasses Summer is coming, need some cute new glasses! Lol
  9. Brush Pens I’ve been really loving practicing brush lettering when I have some free time, my husband bought me some basic colors from this brand as well for christmas they’re super great and I would love some pastel colors next.

Someone that wasn’t in my life.

I honestly don’t know why I’m writing this. I know he will never ever read this so that’s one reason and I just want to get all my feelings out.

I grew up with two older siblings (way older) and my mother who has been both Mom & Dad in my life.

I never once have asked my mom any questions about him. I never truly missed him because I never had any memory of him. My mother has been both the best mom and dad. I don’t even know the story behind it all.

Why he’s not in our lives? Why he left? I have no idea and honestly I don’t want to know.

But, once I had kids something inside just made me ask so many questions.

What if he was in my life? What if he was more in my kids life’s? Why has he never cared? What if he walked me down the aisle? Why has he never called? Why hasn’t he ever visited?

Having kids, and seeing my husband and my father in law with my kids has made me question so many things and desire my father to be in my life like my husband is with my kids or my father in law is with my kids and then I think why am I caring and wondering so much if he has never cared in my 25 years of life. He’s never spent a birthday with me, or even called or sent a nice letter. Why am I going to make the effort, I never did  anything to him?

(I didn’t think writing this would make me emotional) 😦

Something in my heart hurts and loves every time my husband has such a loving bond with our kids, especially our daughter. Its the most beautiful thing and makes me so emotional every time.

In the end, I’m so thankful that my son and my daughter have an amazing father that is 100% in there lives, who is loving, a great example and I know always will be there for them no matter what and they have an incredible Grandpa who has been the best Grandpa to them and they don’t need more.

 

This is Daddy with our kids.

 

I love my mom so much and I am so incredibly thankful for everything she’s done in our lives. For my sister, my brother and I. She’s always put 100% in everything to make sure we succeed, she’s done an amazing job of being a mother and a father. I’ll be forever grateful for her love, her hard work, her comfort, her discipline and everything else she’s done and given to us. She’s an amazing women all in all.

This Our Mother with the 3 of us.

A Letter To My Sweet Girl

20170107_093922000_ios

My dearest Lydia Mavis,

Since the day I found out I was pregnant with you I remember having butterflies in my tummy because I had a huge feeling that you were gonna be a girl.img_5500

You were a huge surprise in our lives baby girl. You were the calmest and sweetest baby.

You made me so happy when I found out you were a girl because I knew I was gonna have a little partner to do girly things with all the time and you are super girly probably more than mommy.

You have taught Mommy and Daddy to have a lot of patience, because lets just say having a girl is a lot more drama than a boy. Hahaha

You have become Your big brothers best friend, and You have become Mommy and Daddy’s little princess.

You’re so shy just like mommy was, You get so quiet around strangers and I remember being that same way. But, I’m so happy you have your big brother to always be with you and keep you company because I never had that since my siblings were a lot older then me.

Time has gone by so fast with you and I hate it, I look back now and wish I would’ve cherished more moments with you. But, you have grown so fast and I know its because you have and older sibling.

I can’t wait to see what God has in store for you my sweet girl just know that I’ll be with you every step of the way.

I know you’re so shy but, I want to tell you now what I have learned through out my 24 years of life.

Go live life, learn, explore, discover the world. Travel the world, I know if you do, do these things I’ll be missing you so much. But, do the things that I never got to do.

Even though you’re so shy, Believe in yourself, be strong, be confident. You’re a beautiful baby girl and I know you have a lot more ahead of you. Love God and His Word.

I know that there will come a point in life were you won’t want to listen to me and say you hate me just as most daughters say to there mothers. But, I love you so much, you and your brother have my heart and no matter what you may be going through I’m here for you. If your heart is broken please come to me, I’m here. If you’re stressed about life, Please come to me, I’m here. I pray that you and your brother will Love God and everything he has prepared for you.

You will never find anyone else in your life who loves you, prays for you, cares for you and worries for you more than Mommy and Daddy. We’ll always be here with open arms for you my baby girl.

It is true that with every passing day, I will grow older and weaker. A day may come when I might become forgetful. But even then, you with your bright smile, will light up my heart.

I love you so much mama❤️

Love, Your Mommy

DIY Disney Cardboard Cars

Hello Everyone! So, September 25 is our little Noah’s Birthday and this year we decided on making it Disney Cars theme since he’s been obsessed.

I decided to make these for the kids so they can race, and also bought some mini piston cups as a prize.

First off, for the first couple steps all you need is some scissors, tape and a good size box.

  1. Open all sides of the box DSCF5007

  2. Decide what side will be the bottom and what size will be the top

  3. Next, on the top put in one of the smaller flaps in and leave one out and tape the top of it.

      1. Then fold the back flap just like the eye area.

      2. Then I sketched out the eyes, mouth and lights on a piece of paper.

      3. Then I cut the shapes out and taped it all to the box.

      4. Obviously this one is jackson storm. My husband spray painted most of them and I didn’t take pictures of him doing it so I guess I’ll just show the final product!
      5. Hope this all helps to anyone is looking into making these for your little ones birthday, they’re a lot easier than I thought they’d be and the kids had a blast playing with them on his birthday party.
      6. Thank you for reading this far 🙂
