Sdrawkcab #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to June's Secret Subject Swap. This week ten brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts. 

My “Secret Subject” is:
You've got it all backwards"
It was submitted by: (Thanks, Tamara, for such a great subject!

One thing came to mind, when I read this prompt, and in all the time I spent thinking of what to write, it was all I could think of. So, that is what I am going to tell y'all about today. What immediately came to mind, when I read "You've got it all backwards".

In recent weeks, Gigi has really put work into dressing herself. She sometimes struggles with figuring out how to hold her clothes, that once on, they are not backwards. If she cannot figure it out, she asks me to show her which way to hold them. I tell her, she puts them on correctly, boom she is dressed.

Well, a few weeks back, when dressing to go to my doctor appointment, she did not get her shirt on correctly. I told her. She told me she knew, she was just going to wear it backwards. Okay.

A few helpful people, at the doctor's office, informed her about it, and we informed them we knew it was backwards. So, that is how that day's outfit went.

Then she started putting them on backwards (either accidentally, or on purpose), and I would let her knew it was backwards, and she would just say it was fine, and that was that. It is her thing these days. Chad and I are considering changing her name to Kriss or Kross. 

So, if you see us around, don't even bother saying "You've got it backwards" to Gigi, she knows. Do like me... Smile and nod.

  1. So funny. I just love that girl's spunk!

  2. Smile and Nod, you know what, you just came up with the ultimate parenting advice! ;-)
    Gigi is getting such a free-spirited personality. I am still smiling about her picking flowers on the soccer field and have the coach (or was is the ref) deliver them to you.

Rainbow Colored Glasses #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to March's Blog with Friends Round-up. Each month, a group of bloggers chooses a topic, and then creates blog posts based on that theme. The posts can include anything, from poetry and recipes, to short stories and informative essays, and often crafts or DIY projects. This month's chosen theme is rainbows.

I decided to do a round-up of awesome rainbow finds, that are reasonably priced, and an easy way for your to add more rainbows into your life. I personally love rainbows, and actually enjoy adding them into my life whenever possible. I especially like adding them into Gigi's wardrobe. My inspiration for the title of this post, were a pair of glasses I bought her. Rose colored glasses are cool, but rainbow colored is such a better view! Unless of course you love black, and then I am sorry.

I will be posting links to where you can find the items to buy. However, I encourage you to shop around, and see if you are able to find any better deals. I also want you to know,…

Weather Outside is Frightful #BlogWithFriends

A group of bloggers chooses a theme for the month, and then we all create unique posts, based on the same theme. Then we link up together, and provide y'all with a round-up!! The posts can contain anything... Recipes, poetry, short stories, a crafting how to, a DIY how to, and everything in between!! Each month is unique and fun!!

Our theme for February is Winter Activities!! You may be thinking... You are in California, what could you possibly have to contribute about winter activities!? Well, you would be right. LOL. However, I have not lived here my entire life. Plus, I have the unique "joy" of being sensitive to colder temperatures. So, I do have some ideas I want to share, for winter activities that can be done inside, when the weather outside is just too frightful (or in my case too chilly…

Boredom, Boredom Go AWAY! #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to July's Blog with Friends Round-up!! Each month, a group of bloggers join Karen from Baking in a Tornado, and pick a theme for the month. Then each blogger creates a post, based on that theme. Posts can include anything the blogger wants. You may find poetry, recipes, short stories, DIY projects, crafts, informative posts, and anything else a blogger may choose. It is just a fun way, for us to all give our own take on a given theme.

This month's theme is Anti-Boredom Month. Did you know that July is National Anti-Boredom Month? I did not know this, until we were researching themes for our BWF posts. I think it is an excellent idea for Summer. I know when I was growing up, the most boredom I encountered, was usually in the Summer. The rest of the year, I would be so busy with school and activities, I did not have time to be bored. Then Summer would hit, and after the excitement wore off, the boredom would come visit regularly. 

I decided to compile a lists of activities…
