Wild Things

I'll admit it. The thought of raising 3 boys today scares me.
Raising them to be leaders.
Who have integrity.
Who are hard working.
Who treat women well.

Men have a tough task. And raising 3 little men, who will someday grow up to be big men and find a woman (if she meets all my criteria) to lead in Christ and be the head of a household and father children etc etc's kinda scary.

It's a darn good thing I pray. I don't know how people survive who don't pray.
I pray every day, along with my husband, that He will give us wisdom in raising these boys. To give us what we need to protect their hearts, but yet allow them to take risks and be boys.

Enter this book.

It was recommended by a friend and I cannot speak highly enough about it.
I have learned so much!

I mean, come on...I'm a woman. I was a girl. I have no stinkin' clue about boys. I knew they were different from girls (duh) but I don't think I realized how incredibly different they are.
The way you treat, discipline, teach and nurture is completely different than how you would a girl. And I am so glad I read this book before Jack got older.

How do you discipline a little wild thing, without breaking his spirit? How do you teach him to be a man? Without letting him rule the roost?

This book has been an excellent tool for us and it walks you through each stage of a boy's life. From age 2 until he graduates and then some.
It talks to you about how they think, process, work, live, breathe....and how to handle each stage.
It's not a list of do's and don'ts...but a great tool.

Jack has a very tender heart. And he is cautious when it comes to some things. I used to think that maybe he'd be a quieter boy, maybe not quiet as crazy as other boys. Maybe one of those boys that was shy and quiet...haha I would be wrong!
 Now, he isn't a bully, nor is he super aggressive or out of control. But the kid is wild. He is all boy and I am loving it (as well as freaking out)
I think he thinks he is invincible. And that scares me  haha!

If you have boys, of any age. I could not recommend this book highly enough! You can get it on your Nook or on Barnes and Noble...really most places are carrying it right now.

But really....go buy it.

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work ! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care! When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better! Face Lift Line I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job. They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!! Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence

What’s more lame than having one type of cancer? Having two.

I had two colon polyps that popped positive for cancer. The thing is, they were in such different places they are considered two different cancers. Colon stage 3a and Rectal stage 3b . What’s more sexy than that?  My 5 weeks of radiation and oral chemo was to kill off any remaining cancer cells in the rectal area because even though my surgeon (while tactless) actually did an amazing job by literally remaking that whole area internally and avoiding any sort of colostomy bag- you can’t guarantee you got it all. So standard practice is always pelvic radiation for that area.  The chemotherapy infusions are to make sure every last naughty cell in my body is gone. Because I had it in one of the lymph nodes they removed, it showed this cancer was able to travel which is how cancer spreads to your other body parts. If it wasn’t in the lymph nodes yet chemo wouldn’t have been necessary. So glad we caught this when we did and that I actually had symptoms to warrant a colonoscopy. Often times th
