So true. If you told me that I would be running miles when I was recovering from back surgery I would have laughed and told you that you had me confused with somebody else. I cry at some point during each run because my legs hurt. Not because the pain is there, but because I can feel it and it reminds me how incredibly lucky I am. by KELLIMeex

Truly & honestly some of THE. MOST. helpful parenting solutions I have ever read. My final thought to share is the fact that the best way that kids learn is by being taught, not by being punished.  When is the last time a teacher put a child in time-out because he didn’t get a math answer correct or couldn’t tie his shoes?  It simply doesn’t happen.  Why, then, do we think that it would work any better for behaviors?  Great ideas on handling "big emotions." by michael

The Annie Sloan Chalk Paint (ASCP) states you don’t have to sand or prime but if you are re-doing cabinetry, either bathroom or kitchen, I would at least give them a good clean with detergent to remove oil, grease, or any residue before painting. I did do a test board that was sanded and another that was not sanded: the sanded side had better paint adhesion and a smoother, end appearance. by bbooky

Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels at a 1933 League of Nations meeting in Geneva smiled for photos until he found out the photographer was Jewish. As Alfred Eisenstaedt recalls, "He looked at me with hateful eyes and waited for me to wither. But I didn’t wither. If I have a camera in my hand, I don’t know fear." by gabriela

'from a young age I was definitely imitating birds, but I didn’t know it at the time. This is what my parents tell me. Once I started making these weird sounds with my voice, they gave me this little flexi-disc of mouth sounds, like guys that could make odd sounds. I don’t know why they gave it to me, but that was one of my favorite records...' Mike Patton of Faith No More by bridgette.jons

Stop Impulse Buying With This One Trick: Wouldn’t it be nice to just spend money as if it didn’t matter? I would LOVE to walk in to a store sometimes and just buy my favorite outfit, never looking at the price tag. But that is not something many of can do, so we have to think about living within a budget. It can be intimidating to say the least, you know where your money is going and to whom, but how can you live with what is left over? Will you have enough by cecile

How cute would this cake be at a birthday party? It is very easy to make and would work well for girls or boys. Choose the color of ribbon that goes along with your party theme or leave it off all together for a boy. Kids would LOVE it!

“I don’t joke when I say she is my better half. She truly is. I cannot believe what a fantastic life I have today. But here’s the thing, she didn’t change me at all. She just gave me an ultimatum at a certain point. Ultimately, we both changed a lot so that now I can’t ever imagine a life before her. I’ve certainly come to believe that Mrs. Downey and I together are definitely better than me alone or me and anybody else.” by shelly

Wong Kar-wai:  “If you have a minimum of experience, we know that all the complexity of the human being comes from the fact that their actions are often totally at odds with your thoughts, and that two human beings do not always react the same way to a given situation. Some people cry when they are sad, others are violent or, conversely, close themselves… That is why, rather than theorizing for hours, I have always preferred to turn the camera by marta

A Child’s Ten Commandments to Parents. Reading this just makes me want to do everything to be a better Mom. 1. My hands are small; please don’t expect perfection whenever I make a bed, draw a picture, or throw a ball. My legs are short; please slow down so that I can keep up with you. 2. My eyes have not seen the world as yours have; please let me explore safely: don’t restrict me unnecessarily. 3. Housework will always be there. I’m only little such a short time—please take time to explain things to me about this wonderful world, and do so willingly. 4. My feelings are tender; please be sensitive to my needs; don’t nag me all day long. (You wouldn’t want to be nagged for your inquisitiveness.) Treat me as you would like to be treated. 5. I am a special gift from God; please treasure me as God intended you to do, holding me accountable for my actions, giving me guidelines to live by, and disciplining me in a loving manner. 6. I need your encouragement, but not your praise, to grow. Please go easy on the criticism; remember you can criticize the things I do without criticizing me. 7. Please give me the freedom to make decisions concerning myself. Permit me to fail, so that I can learn from my mistakes. Then someday I’ll be prepared to make the kind of decisions life requires of me. 8. Please don’t do things over for me. Somehow that makes me feel that my efforts didn’t quite measure up to your expectations. I know it’s hard, but please don’t try to compare me with my brother or my sister. 9. Please don’t be afraid to leave for a weekend together. Kids need vacations from parents, just as parents need vacations from kids. Besides, it’s a great way to show us kids that your marriage is very special. 10. Please take me to Sunday school and church regularly, setting a good example for me to follow. I enjoy learning more about God. I know that when the kids are driving me crazy, I can sit down and read this and feel so much better! Where was this yesterday!?!?! :) *Feel free to print off and put on your fridge for a daily reminder of how to treat your kiddos! **A Child’s Ten Commandments to Parents, by Dr. Kevin Leman by keisha
