Time-out, it is!

Obviously, I have become quite the delinquent blogger. Nevertheless, a conversation I had today with my cousin inspired me to update this old thing.

My cousin was actually trying to find my blog URL in efforts to get some inspiration for a blog of his own. As I reminded him of how to find my blog, I thought, "Great. Now he will find the blog, only to realize that I barely update it!" Oh, the shame.

Hence, here I am with a few updates:

Update #1- I don't believe that I have yet shared my success with potty training Bella. Just before her 3rd birthday she "officially" became potty-trained! Honestly, I'm not sure I can take much credit for this one because she was so self motivated, all I needed to do was provide her with reminders throughout the day! Yaaay Bella!

Update#2- Bella turned 3 years old on May 28th!

Update #3- Hubby and I celebrated 6 years of marriage on June 5th!

Update#4- Hubby and I finally decided on a homeschool curriculum and Noelle will start kindergarten in the fall!

Update#5- The children have begun doing strange things like making their beds without my asking and putting themselves in time-out. Isn't that interesting?

What's even more interesting is that hubby and I don't even use time-out with our kids. This leads me to believe that the kids must have devised new and innovative ways to discipline themselves based on their observation of cultural norms. And since they were smart enough to do all that, who am I to stand in their way?;)


  1. Hello there!!!
    God bless and may you have a super summer. Can you believe it's here?

    Your children sound delightful.

  2. LaSandra,

    I just told Ross "LaSandra updated her blog today" to which he replied "yayyy"...even HE was excited:)

  3. @Deanna- Thank you! I hope you enjoy your summer too!

  4. I love reading your blog. I check it out all the time hoping for new posts!

    I hope you don’t mind --- I’ve been telling all my friends about your blog.

    I printed 100 free business cards with my 10 favorite websites (yours was #1!!) and handed them out at our last Mommy Meet-up.

    It made me wonder if you had ever done that for yourself? Do you ever meet anyone at a coffeeshop or a playground and start talking about blogging? Maybe you could print up some cards to hand out. Just an idea!

    In return for inspiring me, I wanted to pass on these money saving tips to you:
    -- 100 Free business cards at

    In case you decide to get something else printed from them (besides the FREE business cards!) I also wanted to tell you about their unlimited use promo code - it never expires and you can use it again and again:
    -- 10% off promo code “RTPS10”

    FYI: I’ve used this company to print fliers and signs for Church events and even yard sales. The quality is really good compared to what I’ve gotten from VistaPrint and others that offer FREE business cards.

    I hope you have a great week. I’ll be checking back soon. Bye!

  5. Wow! Thanks Rebecca! Thanks for passing my blog address on and for the info! Be blessed!
