I have enjoyed greatly the second blooming that comes when you finish the life of the emotions and of personal relations; and suddenly find - at the age of fifty, say - that a whole new life has opened before you, filled with things you can think about, study, or read about...It is as if a fresh sap of ideas and thoughts was rising in you. ~ Agatha Christie

When Your Teen Won't Cooperate

I don't have any teenagers at home (can I get an Amen) but there are four grandchildren from 14 to almost 1 heading up that path.  This article offers advice to one of the age old problems of dealing with teenagers who are not doing their school work as they should.  The suggestions in this article fit my parenting style. Had I a teenager at home, I would be comfortable using these techniques. I will, however, point out that this article was written in 2009 and the technology available and our dependency on it has only increased with time.   That being said, this is a good article to share with any parents of teenagers who are struggling with the school work/homework issue. 

PS:  Don't you love  the title of her blog.

Easter Cuties

Paint a clothes pin, add googly eyes and pipe cleaner antenna, put jelly beans in a clear sandwich bag and clip the clothes pin in the middle. Love this!

Cute Joke for the Kids or Grandkids


Q: What do you call a bear with no teeth?

A: A gummy bear!

French Manicure

I have to confess I have been wearing some wild nail polish lately.  The problem is I can not paint my left hand.  I believe I could do this on both hands - but maybe not in yellow.
