First Day of First Grade

Looking a little nervous but ready to go!
Once the sisters were involved it was less stressful!
Okay mom can this photo shoot be over yet?
Waiting in line with the rest of the cute first graders.

I was so relieved to see that many of Dalton's friends from his class last year will also be in his class again this year. You know us first time First Grade Mom's tend to panic a little. We rush over during lunch hour to make sure that school lunch was actually served on the first day and that it was something that kids might actually eat. I know, I know you are all saying "How crazy is she really?" Luckily the new teacher was very patient with me and so now I am fine. ( well mostly!)
Anyway it is good to be back on a routine gotta love year round school!

The more I hear about year round school the more I think I might actually like it. Luckily, we have 4 more years before we have to worry about that! Good luck in the first grade, Dalton. I remember my first grade year very well.

How to get Urine/Sweat stains out of your Mattress

If you have kids you have pee stains I know it.  If you don't lucky you or you are a liar and in denial.  I have pee stains on more than one mattress.  I also have sweat stains on pillows because well I sweat a.lot .  It's a gift I know. I digress. Anyway I have tried many different ways to get urine/pee out of mattresses and I have been very unsuccessful so I did a google search and what do you know?  Another mom had pee stains too.  So I borrowed her recipe and it totally worked so I am sharing it with you. All you need are these few house-hold ingredients and a spray bottle.  I bought a really expensive one (NOT) I used one I had for my kids hair.  It worked great. You will need: 3 Tablespoons Baking Soda 8 ounces Hydrogen peroxide 1 drop dish soap Mix together well and use right away. My mom discovered that if it is not mixed well the baking soda will clog the sprayer.  You also can't store this apparently it doesn't last in the bottle and it is no longe

A Quick Poll

So I have been reading a LOT lately about how dark backgrounds with light text are difficult to read for many blog readers.  So I changed my blog.  I am not sure that I LOVE it but if you would leave a comment and let me know if this is a little friendlier to your eyes I would appreciate the feedback.  Thanks! Don't worry about offending me I can take corrective criticism I am asking for it here.  Post edit: So I took your advice and lightened up the grey.  I tried white background and it just wasn't as calming to me.  So hope you all like my new look.  Thanks for the input I appreciate it!
