My kids’ safety is my biggest concern.  I don’t know many moms who wouldn’t agree with that statement.  I like having a bath mat in the tub so they won’t slip.  You know all about bath time.  The kids are standing in the tub.  Water and bubbles everywhere.  You get wet and someone usually ends up crying.  Well, those can now be tears of joy since no one slipped and killed themselves!

Awhile ago, I posted an offer for Black Friday featuring your photo on canvas.  Well, I am extremely happy with how mine turned out.  Every year, my family takes a photo in the same spot at our local pumpkin patch, in order to see how much we’ve changed.  I decided to turn those photos into a canvas and hang them as a family wall.  I really like the way it’s turning out.  Plus, I like that it’s an amateur photo.  It adds character.

Most of the time, I am genuinely happy for people.  But jealousy rears it’s ugly head every now and again.  Don’t lie to me.  We’ve all been there.
