Happy 4th of July (a little late!)

I completely skipped over the 4th of July this year. Don't get me wrong I celebrated just like everyone else but I didn't blog about it or scrap book about it this year. And I was really feeling guilty about that because I consider myself quite patriotic. I love this country. I know that no where else could I be doing what I am right now and I love that. I appreciate that and I wanted to tell all of you that. I felt it more so this year than before. I can't make it all the way through the Star Spangled Banner without my voice cracking and I am grateful for that love and feeling I get when I see a flag.
So now you all now I am sappy and I don't care. I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July and God Bless America!

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
