All of the sudden I'm the asshole walking around saying things like: nope she doesn't watch that, she doesn't eat that, she doesn't play with those, we don't sing Hannah Montana songs, she doesn't eat candy for breakfast. It goes on and on. The things going on the shelves in America marketed to kids is creating a bitterness inside me that I can't quite control. I wanted to write this post so I could let off some steam and have a laugh and all it did was get me discouraged. I hate that as parents we are put in the position to look like assholes for saying no to things that just aren't good for them. I don't want my daughter to resent me because I didn't let her drink sugar water with red dye in it, or let her wear makeup when she is 4, or dress up like a princess because it's her job to be pretty. When the kids are outside playing in the pool, or fishing at the lake, or outside in general just rolling around in grass or splashing in puddles I feel like they can just be kids. I feel like we are all happiest. None of this requires toys, or an appropriate color scheme or movie theme, it's just fun. They get to just play. So I suppose we will stay outside.

It's amazing how we're so busy sometimes with our lives, instead of looking up at the wonders of the sky, we focus on all the things we have to get done. Thankful someone took the time to look up and capture this amazing picture. It reminds me to look at the beauty and awe of nature more often. *TamrA~

25 Manners Kids Should Know #1: When asking for something, say "Please." #2: When receiving something, say "Thank you." #3: Do not interrupt grown-ups who are speaking with each other unless there is an emergency. They will notice you and respond when they are finished talking. #4: If you do need to get somebody's attention right away, the phrase "excuse me" is the most polite way for you to enter the conversation. #5: When you have any doubt about doing something, ask permission first. It can save you from many hours of grief later. #6: The world is not interested in what you dislike. Keep negative opinions to yourself, or between you and your friends, and out of earshot of adults. #7: Do not comment on other people's physical characteristics unless, of course, it's to compliment them, which is always welcome. #8: When people ask you how you are, tell them and then ask them how they are. #9: When you have spent time at your friend's house, remember to thank his or her parents for having you over and for the good time you had. #10: Knock on closed doors -- and wait to see if there's a response -- before entering. #11: When you make a phone call, introduce yourself first and then ask if you can speak with the person you are calling. #12: Be appreciative and say "thank you" for any gift you receive. In the age of e-mail, a handwritten thank-you note can have a powerful effect. #13: Never use foul language in front of adults. Grown-ups already know all those words, and they find them boring and unpleasant. #14: Don't call people mean names. #15: Do not make fun of anyone for any reason. Teasing shows others you are weak, and ganging up on someone else is cruel. #16: Even if a play or an assembly is boring, sit through it quietly and pretend that you are interested. The performers and presenters are doing their best. #17: If you bump into somebody, immediately say "Excuse me." #18: Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, and don't pick your nose in public. #19: As you walk through a door, look to see if you can hold it open for someone else. #20: If you come across a parent, a teacher, or a neighbor working on something, ask if you can help. If they say "yes," do so -- you may learn something new. #21: When an adult asks you for a favor, do it without grumbling and with a smile. #22: When someone helps you, say "thank you." That person will likely want to help you again. This is especially true with teachers! #23: Use eating utensils properly. If you are unsure how to do so, ask your parents to teach you or watch what adults do. #24: Keep a napkin on your lap; use it to wipe your mouth when necessary. #25: Don't reach for things at the table; ask to have them passed.
H & M Fall 2011 "ON TREND"With A/W 2011 fashion being fun and free, look to
the British capital for historical references, street
style and unexpected inspiration.
London never ceases to surprise. The city of 14-million souls may not have the historic ties to haute couture of Paris. Nor does it boast the fast-paced superbrands found in New York. Or the luxurious elegance that Milan does so well. Yet, the British capital has managed to secure a place as one of the world’s most influential fashion cities. A younger, slightly misbehaved sibling to the other trendsetting hubs, it thrives on a wild mix of styles. Influences come from new club culture, as well as old Savile Row know-how, from run-down warehouses and posh townhouses. Put together, they make London a place for bold experiments and unexpected fashion adventures.
British style has also been shaped by the tumultuous movements of its subcultures. In the 60s, designers such as mini-skirt inventor Mary Quant set up shop. The Rolling Stones and The Who were soon regular fixtures. Later, the style crowd moved on to Barbara Hulanicki’s Biba, where girls could buy cheap ’n’ cheerful polyester mini-dresses as well as Biba-branded cans of baked beans. A decade later, punk rock’s bondage- and rebellion-inspired garb was all the rage. And throughout the 80s and 90s, from the rise of rave culture to Brit Pop mania, music emerged out of London and set the style for influential people all over the world.
Today, the East End areas of Shoreditch and Dalston, visibly cleaned up and gentrified, have evolved into the city’s unrivalled creative hub. Designers such as Gareth Pugh and Christopher Kane have been inspired by the outré club scene. And via street style blogs like the Facehunter, the East London Style has spread around the world. Features like a sexy/cool attitude, bomber jackets, dip-dyed bleached hair and hotpants + tights combos have also filtered into mainstream fashion (see style icons from Pixie Geldof to Lady Gaga).
This, however, isn’t the only way the London influence can be seen in fashion right now. Stella McCartney and Phoebe Philo
of Céline are inspired by the dressed-down casual feel of the big city’s busy working women. Erdem has been pivotal in awakening catwalk fashion’s current love
for pattern and prints. Jonathan Saunders has been pushing the bright colours we all love right now for years. Not to mention the youthful feel of this season’s Burberry Prorsum, Marni and Bottega Veneta offerings, which were all influenced by 60s Carnaby Street style.
All this to say that London is, by all means, swinging again!
Coat-style dresses are a classic icon in formal fashion. They are highly elegant and unique because of how rare they are compared to other styles. This one is a fine example of what we mean. Made in the traditional coat style, it features pretty embroidered details across the bodice, a button down front and lovely rounded neckline. The sleeves are ¾ in length and have buttoned cuffs and a slit in the front of the skirt reveals just enough of the leg to be stylish without overly revealing. A dainty belt with a metal hook closure accents the midsection and completes this stylish look. So elegant!Product Details:-Made from taffeta-Coat-style-Button down front-¾ sleeves-Button down front-Rounded neckline-Floor-length-Front slit

Play more games.
Read more books than you did in 2010.
Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.
Sleep for 7 hours.
Take a 10-30 minutes walk daily. And while you walk, smile.
Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
Don’t have negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
Don’t over do. Keep your limits.
Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip.
Dream more while you are awake.
Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
Forget issues of the past. Don’t remind your partner with his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don’t hate others.
Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil the present.
No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
Smile and laugh more.
You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
Call your family often.
Each day give something good to others.
Forgive everyone for everything.
Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6.
Try to make at least three people smile each day.
What other people think of you is none of your business.
Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.
Do the right thing!
Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful.
However good or bad a situation is, it will change. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
The best is yet to come.
Your Inner most is always happy. So, be happy.
“Mom, listen, I haven’t been together with Topanga for 22 years, but we have been together for 16. That’s a lot longer than most couples have been together. I mean, when we were born, you told me that we used to take walks in our strollers together around the block. When we were two, we were best friends. I mean, I knew everything about this girl. I knew her favorite color, her favorite food. Then we became six, Eric made fun of me because it wasn’t cool to have a best friend that was a girl or even know a girl. So for the next seven years I threw dirt at her. I like to call those “the lost years”. Then when I was thirteen, mom, she put me up against my locker and she kissed me. I mean, she gave me my first kiss. She taught me how to dance. She always was talking about these crazy things and I never understood a word she said. All I understood was that she was the girl I sat up every night thinking about, and when I’m with her, I feel happy to be alive. Like I can do anything. Even talk to you like this. So that’s, that’s what I think is love, mom. When I’m better because she’s here.” - Cory Matthews, Boy Meets World <3
. . . Something To Think About. . . Washington, DC Metro Station on a cold January morning in 2007. The man with a violin played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time approx. 2 thousand people went through the station, most of them on their way to work. After 3 minutes a middle aged man noticed there was a musician playing. He slowed his pace and stopped for a few seconds and then hurried to meet his schedule. 4 minutes later: The violinist received his first dollar: a woman threw the money in the hat and, without stopping, continued to walk. 6 minutes: A young man leaned against the wall to listen to him, then looked at his watch and started to walk again. 10 minutes: A 3-year old boy stopped but his mother tugged him along hurriedly. The kid stopped to look at the violinist again, but the mother pushed hard and the child continued to walk, turning his head all the time. This action was repeated by several other children.. Every parent, without exception, forced their children to move on quickly.. 45 minutes: The musician played continuously. Only 6 people stopped and listened for a short while. About 20 gave money but continued to walk at their normal pace. The man collected a total of $32. 1 hour: He finished playing and silence took over. No one noticed. No one applauded, nor was there any recognition. No one knew this, but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the greatest musicians in the world. He played one of the most intricate pieces ever written, with a violin worth $3.5 million dollars. Two days before Joshua Bell sold out a theater in Boston where the seats averaged $100. This is a true story. Joshua Bell playing incognito in the metro station was organized by the Washington Post as part of a social experiment about perception, taste and people's priorities. The questions raised: *In a common place environment at an inappropriate hour, do we perceive beauty? *Do we stop to appreciate it? *Do we recognize talent in an unexpected context? One possible conclusion reached from this experiment could be this: If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world, playing some of the finest music ever written, with one of the most beautiful instruments ever made. How many other things are we missing?
words of wisdom.
