Freebie Printable: A lesson for moms

I was visiting with a friend recently and telling her how there never seems to be enough hours in the day. I feel like I'm always rushing to get things done while simultaneously forgetting things (like the load of wet laundry in the wash that is now smelly, or the defrosting chicken in the fridge  from two days ago!) My (older- kids out of the house- and much wiser) friend told me this: "you know you're being a good mom when you have sticky floors, dirty dishes, but your kids are smiling and happy. They may have food on their faces from their peanut butter and jelly sandwich and scabs on their knees from playing outside, but you both have memories because you took the time to listen to what's on their mind and stopped to enjoy the everyday moments together." WOW!! Her wisdom smacked me in the face and made me realize that while I don't need to live in a pigsty and can still enforce basic hygiene rules, other things can wait. My kids' childhood can't. I asked my friend B. if I could turn her quote into my printable for this month she agreed since she heard it herself from someone else years ago. 

Perhaps you too know someone who needs this reminder. This printable can be used in a frame, be made into a magnet for the fridge, as part of a card, attached to a gift or plate of treats for a special friend or loved one this mother's day. Also feel free to LIKE, SHARE, and PIN away!

A little SRING in your step: 2 free printables!

Spring is here! Where I'm from, spring means warm weather one day to a blizzard the next. Mostly, it means lots and lots of wind. My kids are begging to do some kite flying. And recently, our local high school put on a production of Mary Poppins. Ever since then, I've had songs from the show in my head. I love the let's go fly a kite song, and thought it fits perfectly with the season. This printable would make a fun tag for a gift (a kite, maybe?), a card, or just a fun reminder displayed in your own. WARNING: you may find yourself whistling this tune with a smile on your face.
