Random Tid Bits

  1. On Thursday I couldn't stop crying. I guess it was just my time to cry. I haven't cried, for a really long time prior to Thursday. Sometimes one just needs to let it all out. 

  2. The school I worked at got broken into on Monday night. My bosses got dings on their phones that there was activity. They looked, and called 911. It was 5 punk kids that realized the back doors didn't get shut all the way. Possibly the cleaning lady. It doesn't matter. Anyhow all they stole was zucchini I gave my 3rd year students, and candy on someone else's desk. I had a chuckle about the zucchini. Since they were young punk kids, I can only imagine that they were being goofy with the zucchini like it's male's 3rd leg. 4 were arrested.

  3. We had a garage sale, and made over $100. After we had it we sold just about as much on Facebook Marketplace.
  4. I just wish we could sell this stove! It's an antique, and in great condition! We've used it, but it needs a new flue. With my asthma, it's not great to breathe in any smoke, even if it is limited. We really could use the room. It's in our living room. One of Travis' sculptures would look great there, so would a Christmas tree. Online it's selling for $600, and that's a beat up stove. I put ours on FB Marketplace for $500, then $400, then $300, and now $200. No one wants it.

  5. I questioned weather to blog about this, or not. I just won't, for it's own post. Isaak has a kid at school telling him that his hair is ugly. It's crazy to me because Sports Clips posted his hair on their facebook page. Two people worked on it. Isaak loved it!

    I want to scream at this punk ass kid that's making fun of Isaak. Seriously! Isaak doesn't even know his name. I can't do anything about it, even if I wanted to. This punk doesn't know all the crap he went through last year. Isaak's an empathetic one! The one friend he's made sat down with the punk kid at lunch. Isaak sat by himself. He's like me, social around people he knows, and shy around people he doesn't know. I said, "Honey you should just sit with people you have classes with."

    He took that as me being mad at him, ran off into his room and sobbed.

    We tried to comfort him, but left him be for 20 minutes. I said I was sorry, that I'm not at all mad at him. He proceeded to cry and talk to himself in the 3rd person. Things like, "Isaak stop crying!" and "Isaak you need to quit!" I just wanted to yell, "STOP! You are a good looking boy!" or cry right along with him.

    The next night math homework was what he cried about. He knew how to do it, but kept saying he didn't know.

    These crying episodes started last year. They took a break over the summer, and now they are back again.

    What freaks me out is that he doesn't know how to talk to us. He says he doesn't know what's bothering him. I know. The talking to himself in 3rd person bothers me a lot!

    I did ask his friend Daniel to come over. They had problems over the summer, but they have each have each other's back at the school where they know no one. It just sucks that Daniel doesn't have lunch at the same time as Isaak does.

    I contacted his doctor. Isaak may be seeing a Therapist soon. I at least want the school councilor to help him. It's horrible that everything is happening at once. We have the crappiest of insurance. Isaak needs braces, Travis messed up his elbow, and probably needs a scan and surgery, and now Isaak needs help with his feelings. I wish there was a video to watch, where I could snap my fingers to know how to deal with this! Worrying about him is part of why I was crying non stop! Why say anything on here? I think mental health isn't talked about enough. If someone has a medical problem it's no biggy, you talk about it. If someone has a mental health issue it's frowned upon, with talking about it. We all have lows in our life, our struggles, and we should talk about them.

Caring for Baby’s Bedding

Parenting can be fun. But it’s never easy, especially for new moms. Babies are known to sleep anywhere between 10 to 18 hours, making it all-important to have the perfect baby bedding for their survival. But even the highest quality bedding will never last if you don’t know how to handle them. Without much ado, here are the top 6 tips for caring for your baby’s bedding.

1. Use Baby-Safe Detergent

Every mother’s wish is to give their baby a sparkling sleeping space while maintaining their health and comfort. But unlike adults, your baby’s skin is extremely sensitive meaning, not every detergent is befitting.

Using strong cleaning agents with intense scents when cleaning your baby’s bedding is never the best option. With several detergents that are specifically designed for baby clothing and bedding readily available in the market, finding the most suitable option with low complications should be easy.

2. Use Warm Water

Using cold water to clean the baby’s crib sheets is the most common practice in many households. But is it really the best option? No. In fact, it is never recommended by health experts. Instead, you should use warm water because it disinfects the bedding besides removing the stains easily.

3. Cotton Bedding

Buying cotton bedding should be your priority as a caring mother. Why? Because cotton never holds odor like other materials. The ideal material for your baby’s bedding should be natural and durable to make it easy when it comes to stain removal during cleaning. Cotton has both characteristics. Stain removal has never been easy. But the cotton sheets can make it a lot more fun if not easier.

4. Get the Right Fit

That your crib sheet should have the proper fit cannot be stressed enough. Your chosen crib sheet should perfectly fit on the mattress with no excess fabric left. It's unsurprising that trusted bedding companies provide flexible crib sheets that cover all the edges of the sheet.

5. Always Read the Labels

Whether the pre-treaters or detergents, ensure they have enzymes. Most of the traditional fabric softeners have chemicals that soften your bedding and clothes but this doesn’t mean you will want such chemicals near your baby’s skin. Keeping that in mind, it’s all the more imperative to read the labels before making your purchase.

6. Have More Sheets

Let’s be honest here; you need more than one crib sheet for your toddler if you are going to maintain their comfort and health. Babies are known to soil the crib sheets when least expected so what happens when they do so in the middle of the night? Do you have a backup plan? The only known backup plan is to have more than one crib sheet.


Give your baby the quality treatment they deserve by safeguarding their health and comfort. Parenting has never been easy but the highlighted tips should make it a lot more fun and easier for you.
