Love and Logic-FranticMommy style

Good job! My parenting style is the same. Love and Logic Parenteing is so similar to what you are talking about (pulling over until they stop fighting, etc) and it is very effective without screaming or threatening. In my house we do REAL crazy stuff…like show appreciation and consideration(gasp!). I’ve…

The “HELP ME!” Egg

Sunday started off well enough. Cup-o-coffee, a nice sunrise and some giggles from my blog-mates. But after breakfast things temporarily became a big, gigantic ball of yuck.

“Mrs Flansburg, your Woodchuck is causing a Ruckus….”

Ah, residential living. Here in the hoppin’ metropolis of Baxter, we enjoy many a wildlife on a day-to-day basis. We have Neighborhood deer who come and go as they please and pillage everyone’s gardens. But no one seems to mind. We loveĀ our pretty deer family. We also have the typical…
