Thankful Thursday

So as I laid in bed last night crying and not being able to sleep I watched a preview of a new show called Go On. I was quickly reminded that the things I was crying over are not that bad. Somewhere in the world someone has it worse then me, someone is going through something more trying then me. I've been a stay at home mom for pretty much all of 10 years, it has been such a blessing I have never missed a moment in my children's lives. On the 15th I will start a new journey as a working mom. I have been so excited about this new journey in life. All my kids will be in school this year and won't need me home.......or will they. I just realized last night that being a working mom means missing field trips, awards, and parties. :*( I couldn't stop crying for about an hour as friends talked me down.lol Then I realized that it really isn't that bad. Some where last night a mother was longing for her children, crying to just get to hug them. So I have decided that from now on I will take Thursdays to remember what I am thankful for. 

I'm thankful that my husband and I both have jobs! 

I'm thankful to have a healthy family!

I'm thankful for a supportive family and amazing friends! 

 I'm thankful that I have a roof over my head! 

What are you thankful for today??

I can't wait to see how this change is going to effect my favorite little family for the best. Y'all are going to be great; your kids have amazing heads on their shoulders.
I'm thankful for family and friends who support what I believe in, who love me and my children. I am thankful for the children I will be watching (mine, yours, and my niece!). And very thankful for the blogposts that they're going to help me write with the funny things I know they're going to say and do. :)

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)
