About this blog

If you're looking for me to brag about how cute my kids are (which they are) or talk about how much weight I did or didn't lose this week, you are in the wrong place! I have a Facebook account for that. This blog is about the blunt truths of parenting, tips and tricks of the trade, some addicting mommy junk and all the other disgusting hilarity that ensues when you have kids...especially two kids only 12 months apart like myself.

Using you tube to raise your kids

Kids love to learn new things, but as parents we don't always have the time, money or simply access to things our kids our interested in.

Last year Boo was super into cows and the fact that milk came from them. Did I schedule a play date at a dairy? No. I found an awesome video on you tube of cows being milked! He and Bubbi loved it! If only I'd thought to watch it first myself...flipping farmers were cussing like crazy.

A friend of mine's little boy loves garbage trucks. One morning he heard the truck outside but didn't make it out in time to see some good action. Dude was devastated! What did his mommy do? You tube! We was stocked to watch garbage trucks pick up garbage...and he got a really good view.

You can also use you tube to introduce new activities. My son is going to a real baseball game today. He's never been so I wanted to introduce him to what it would look like (the huge stadium, the crowds etc)...so I pulled up you tube! Now he has a true understanding of what he's going to be experiencing today.

I encourage you to use you tube to your advantage when it comes to your kids! Just don't forget to watch the video first. Bad words is probably the best situation you can stumble upon with it.

We use the internet for all of E's facinations. He was really in to shuttle/rocket take offs...internet. Garbage trucks...internet. Fire trucks (or anything with a siren)....internet. Randon questions about the universe as a whole...internet. You get the picture. What the hell did parents do before the internet? I guess most told their kids to shut the hell up and go play...maybe some took their kids to the library. I honestly don't know which my life would have come to...thank the stars I have the internet!
