John Bonham Drum Set
Posted on 12.17.16 by The Mommy Blogger @

If you are looking for an amazing christmas gift for that percussionist then you have to check out the john bonham drum set. My nephew really would like to play the drums and my sister is just dreading it but I keep on telling her that if he really wants to then let him. Learning any instruments is just a huge benefit to children. And who knows – he may be great! And a good percussionist is really impressive in my opinion .\

Adopting An Older Child
Posted on 12.07.16 by The Mommy Blogger @

Bringing a new baby home from the hospital – or even home from the adoptions agency – is one of the most joyous days of your life, but unless you have been through it before, you don’t know quite what you are letting yourself in for. Certainly it’s rewarding, and you wouldn’t have it any other way, but the constant sleepless nights, crying and feeding can leave you feeling a bit frazzled. That’s probably an understatement, but as parents we put up with it because we love our children.

Taking an older child into your home is at least as big a challenge, but it is a completely different one. A baby has no baggage, no history and no conditioned fear – all of which you can find in abundance when you adopt an older child. And yet, they are the ones that need our help the most. While adoptive parents are queuing up to bring home babies, there are more than 100,000 older children waiting to be adopted in the United States. Not only that, an increasing number of children in foster care are needing to be adopted – and with nearly 400,000 kids now in foster care, the demand for adoptive parents for older children may well rise further.

If you have decided that you are up to the task of adopting an older child , then you may find that your normal parenting skills just don’t quite seem enough. You need to take a different approach to succeed, and you need to be patient while waiting for results.

It’s important that you don’t make any assumptions about what your adopted child understands. They may seem experienced in some ways, but in others they are just like babies. For instance, there was one story of a three-year-old boy who had been so uncomfortable all his life that he didn’t know how to stop being uncomfortable. He didn’t understand that things cause discomfort and that discomfort can be alleviated. For example, he knew that he was cold, but he didn’t know that the wind made him cold, and he didn’t know that putting on a jacket would protect him. Obviously, this is an extreme case, but it does show how little your child may understand about the world around them.

You need to see the world in the same way that your child does. For example, if you have adopted a child from overseas, they may be hostile and even violent. However, imagine if you were kidnapped and taken on a long trip by people speaking a foreign language. You would be scared, angry and willing to do anything you could to survive. That is exactly the position that your child is in – but unless you can look at the world through their eyes, there is no way that you can understand this.

Bartolini Pickups
Posted on 11.01.16 by The Mommy Blogger @

If you want a nice rich sound quality from your guitar then you should consider not just any pickups but bartolini pickups. You can go right online and read up about them and you will find that most musicians will use this brand because it has the least amount of feedback in your sound. My husband is a guitarist and I actually don’t know if he has one of these. He has tons of gadgets and accessories for his guitar though…it is like an addiction!

Don’t Store Your Toys With The Batteries In Them!!!
Posted on 10.23.16 by The Mommy Blogger @

Do not make the same mistake that I have made in the past. I stored all of my baby toys in the attic because of course you do not want to them around. However, when you store them and put them away for months and years at a time…TAKE OUT THE BATTERIES!! I went to get my toys out of the basement and the attic and they looked ok but they didn’t work because the batteries that were in there completely corroded the coils where the batteries go. So they don’t work – real bummer because they still look so nice and new even!

Everything needs batteries today… I swear that the toy companies are partnered with the battery companies!
