Proud Mom Moment~ Improving in School!

This week we had both the kids teacher conferences.  Ron and I were not looking forward to either one because the last conferences didn't go so well.  At the last conferences we were told our kids were far behind and felt like horrible parents.  This is the first year at this school and wow we were hit pretty hard when we found out how behind our kids were.

At first I was like WTF did I do to my kids putting them in a school (the old one) where they were not taught the requirements.  We loved our old school until it changed (long story-another day).  Then I had to look back at all the years we were there and know it was okay because my kids got something more out of the old school then they would have at their new school- life time experiences that other schools don't offer.  Yes, there were issues at the old school but my kids got to experience wonderful teachers that will be in their lives for a long time and the memories they have being at that school. We have artwork all over our house from the old school- nothing from the new school yet!

But with that said...my kids are blessed to be able to go to the school they are in now because they needed this strict structured education.  Yes, they are a little behind but both have made improvements and making strides.  Learning is hard so yes it's been a struggle but as a family we have all made the effort to move foreword and help each other out.

This time around I heard from both teachers that the kids are improving and such pleasures to have in class.  They are great kids and enjoy having them in their classes.  As a parent you do want to hear these comments from your kids teachers.   I'm so proud of my kids and impressed they didn't give up but kept trying.

We have many years of school but for now we are doing just fine!  Next year it's 6th and 4th grades- oh my!

REVIEW: NAAT Brazilian Keratin Hair Products- LOVE IT




NAAT Brazilian Keratin collection restores and intensifies your hair's nutritional balance, leaving it incredibly smooth, strong and flexible. Unlike typical animal-based keratins, our exclusive Green Keratin formula stays in your hair longer and is more resistant to rinsing. Promotes vibrancy and hydration, giving hair a natural, healthy shine. Products include: Shampoo, Conditioner, Hair Mask, Leave-In, and Serum. 

My Review:


I have done a couple reviews on hair products and they were okay but they never changed my hair.  These products CHANGED my hair for the better.  I have very frizzy hair and when it rains or when it's very dry my hair is CRAZY.  After using this product my hair was soft, manageable, and beautiful!  I felt like I went to a salon and got my hair done.  I felt great going out because people were also commenting on my hair and of course that makes you feel good.  Usually my hair is heavy and so frizzy that I can't even put in rubber bands because it just so puffy!   This product made my hair so light and I LOVED IT SO MUCH!  I'm impressed because I've never felt this good about my hair.  I used it on my daughters kinky hair too and she also liked how her hair felt.  

This is Me- LOVE MY HAIR!



We HIGHLY RECOMMEND this product.  4 Thumbs UP!  (2 thumbs from Lil Mama too) 

For more information about NAAT Brazilian Keratin products or other products from nuNAAT, visit their website, www.nunaat.com and connect with them on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/nunaat) and Twitter (

 I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

10 Reasons Why I Want To Go To Bloggy Conference 2013

If I can jump and raise my hand as high as I can and yell "PICK ME!!!" I would but I don't think it will do much good so I'll write a blog post instead.  

My Reasons WHY I Want To Go to Bloggy Conference 2013:

  • I'm Blogger and Social Media Addict, duh!
  • Meet other bloggers...awesome bloggers!
  • Actually learn about blogging and all the bad things I'm doing.  Just kidding about the bad things but really I want to LEARN and help my blog grow. 
  • Party like it's 1999- okay maybe like 2013 I need to get out more often- I'm boring
  • I deserve a getaway without the kids and hubby because other vacations aren't really that fun for me- too much work.
  • I can actually say YES I've been to a blog conference- instead of "I want to someday but I really can't afford it"- that doesn't sound so good.
  • I want to be around other people that are doing the same thing and build relationships.  I know building relationships are important but to meet people in person- priceless! 
  • Did I mention I need to a break- away from all my mom duties and be a only a BLOGGER for a couple days.  
  • I told myself and others of course 2013 is going to be my year and I would love to be able to brag that I got to go to Bloggy Conference 2013. 
  • Last but not least~ Who wouldn't want to go to Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio!  It's on my bucket list! LOL! I would really love to be able to say YES I've been to Sandusky, Ohio! 

This post is an entry into the Building Blog Bridges giveaway I have entered for a chance to win one Bloggy Conference 2013 ticket. 

Keep your fingers crossed for me because I really feel I would learn some awesome skills plus build some face to face relationships that would be important for my growth.  

PICK ME PLEASE LOL!!!!
