Mommy Confessions

It's about to get REAL up in here folks! 
I debated on writing this post. I debated on hitting publish. But I am gonna put it out there because I am sure I am not the only one that has felt this way as a mother, at least I hope.

Travis has been gone A LOT for work this summer and that will not be stopping any time soon so it has just been me taking care of Miss P and Miss S.
Miss P is starting the age of tantrums, screaming, constant whining, etc. etc. etc. When you are alone with your children and have no one to help out at all, you get EXHAUSTED, mentally and physically. Props to all you single mommas/daddies out there. I don't know how you do it!! And props to all of you that have or had more than 2 small kiddos at once. Not sure how you do it either. I think you are a little bit crazy! lol 

Last week, Miss P put me to the test and I failed. BIG TIME!! I definitely received a big fat F!

Again, she is at that fun age where she throws tantrums, screams, cries, whines, and all that fun stuff and it drives me to the point of screaming, crying, and wanting to pull my hair out! 

 I try my darndest to stay calm, talk to her softly, but good lord, that is the hardest thing ever! 
She doesn't listen. I hate when I am just trying to get out one sentence and I have to tell her to look at me 10 times so I know she hears me. Which even then, I don't think she heard a word.
I know she is trying to express herself. She still has a hard time with words so we don't always understand what she wants and she gets frustrated. I get it. But oh my!!

Alphabet Flashcards Printables

Miss P is starting preschool in September... CRAZY!! 
It is only 2 days a week for 3 hours each day but I am totally excited for her and me for that matter.

She is a pretty smart little girl but I want to help in her learning a little more before and after she starts school.
I have been wanting to create some alphabet flashcards for some time now and I finally got around to creating them.


 I must say, I love how they came out too! :)

Miss P seemed to enjoy them as well!
 We would work on the letter name, sound, and say the name of the picture as well.

Back to School Subway Art Printable

I can't believe that summer is coming to an end for many of you teachers and your kiddos! 
I have many friends and family back home in TN preparing to start a new year.

I signed Miss P up for preschool this year but we still have another month before she starts but I decided to make a printable for the start of the school year.
