Mommmm…I NEED YOU! What’s this, that, how do I, can you guys…I miss you so much LOL

So funny, SO true lol!!! image

With 3 teen girls 18, 16 & 13 this is more true for me as the mom, I hear this stuff all of it time literally ALL of it….ALL of the time lol!😂

We’ll always be here for our pain in the behind twits, I’ll always answer any and all of their crazy questions. After all aren’t we the ones that taught them “there’s no such thing as a stupid question”.

This is hilarious and soo very accurate! I LOVE the end the most! We always told them, you WILL appreciate us someday, maybe not right away but someday you will lol! We have 1 away at college now realizing it all lol

If you still call your mom for everything or you are the mom being called for everything you are going to loveeee this too lol☺️

Chores A Must~Age Appropriate

Ahhh CHORES!!!

image
Chore Charts~Do you have one yet? If not it’s a must! We had so many over the years, will post some later.

Consistency~Once you begin, there’s no going back. Most kids can’t wait to start being “Big Kids, The Helpers” however as they get older and recognize these as actual chores they don’t love them as much. It’s your responsibility to ensure they continue their responsibilities and that not doing them is not an actual option.

Each person should be responsible for picking up after themselves. Just because it’s Mary Lou’s day for picking up the living room and dish duty, does not give Sam & Tommy the right to eat Fruit Loops and leave their bowls on the coffee table and vice versa.

Working Together as a family is major.

It’s all a matter of teaching them responsibility and values that they will take with them as they grow as well as a deeper respect living with others.

Praise of a job well done, when they’re small even if they didn’t really do that great. Praise them and either fix it later or kindly say this is great I wanted to just go over this area one more time, let’s do it together!😉

Being rewarded for chores is up to the parent, not all agree on that one and that’s an entirely different topic.  It’s a matter of personal preference. Here are a few links that have more info regarding Famiy chores and age appropriate chores. Also a couple sample chore charts that can also be printed…more to come

Argan Oil Hair Mask Tips

Love Argan Oil Hair Masks!💞

image

As promised I am giving my tips on how I apply Argan Oil Hair Mask, this is just how it works best for me…I am not endorsing any specific one as you will see I am just like many have pretty much tried almost everything and found something that finally helped and hope it can help you as well!☺️

I have difficult to manage wavy/curly just plain frizzy hair lol that only looks somewhat decent with a bunch of hair products in it. I don’t have the energy for my crazy ass hair (sorry Anna) so I basically just always have it tossed up in a messy bun because well it’s just easier for me but I’ve since learned that even if I’m not styling my hair on a daily basis it does still deserve to be maintained and healthy, even more so now since I have put it through so much hell over the years with various chemicals, heat damage from straighteners etc. In trying to find things for my hair I’ve used a variety of treatments such as hair mayo, hot oil treatment and other deep conditioning therapies that didn’t work only this does for me.

The first time I ever used Argan Oil not the Hair Mask I applied it exactly as directed, it was a literal nightmare! It made my hair soo gross, it was just greasy and stinky nobody wanted to come near me lol! Yes I tried to get it out I couldn’t! I gave it another chance in a different way but noo it just sucked! Although…it did seem to give me some personal space for a few days so idk now that I think about it I guess it wasn’t so bad lol! I then learned about Argan Oil Hair Masks and thought hmm ok it’s more like a conditioner worst that can happen is it ends up next to my Hair Mayo lol! First time I again applied it as directed just wasn’t too liberal, used it in the shower after my shampoo, rinsed it out thoroughly I did not leave it in as a leave in conditioner! I honestly don’t even understand how others have had success with that but everyone is of course different and as with all things it’s about trial and error to find what works for you.

In any case it just was not the outcome I had hoped for however undeterred and very determined to give this a fair chance I tried yet another method of application, my own this time! I applied it to my DRY hair prior to washing it. I made sure before doing so that I had no hair products in my hair such as hairspray, mousse, gel etc. it was product free but totally dry from my last wash. (not from the last time I used this mask however I wanted to start from total scratch) I applied it to my entire head saturating all of my hair kinda like when you dye your hair no spot left untouched. I then put on a shower cap leaving it on for about 20 min, the time frame was just personal preference as I was doing it for intention of deep conditioning. I then rinsed it all out thoroughly then washed with my shampoo and conditioner as normal. It was perfection!!!! As I said my hair is normally dry and somewhat damaged from years of abuse from coloring, applying heat etc and my hair type in general is naturally wavy/curly yet frizzy so normally after I wash it my hair dries so quickly especially the ends first, I normally need to put products in it for it to look somewhat decent. I am so extremely happy with the results upon my second application, I may not have benefited from applying it in the shower however the method I chose to try the second go has personally worked wonders for me. My hair has never been so healthy, it’s looks and feels so much healthier, softer and not at all greasy, oily or heavy and best of all it is not frizzy! I didn’t even need to put a bunch of chemicals in it to achieve that goal or keep it looking nice. I am so glad now that I did give end up giving it another chance. I use it often usually when I’m doing my facial mask and leave it on for about 35 min give or take a few. I do intend to do an overnight treatment soon. Oh and hair masks smell much better to, they’re not oily like regular Argan oil.

Hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions!💞

Baby Krazed Recipe Choice of the Day goes to…

Last-Minute Lasagna Recipe

I am Italian and make a killer homemade sauce  but every now and then even Italians use the good ol’ jar sauce, yes it’s true. When I was younger my mother didn’t but my stepmother introduced me to it, I said oh wow what is this delicious recipe called and how did you make it SO fast?! My moms takes all day (really 8+ hours lol) She just cracked up laughing and said well the difference is your moms doesn’t come from a jar so that’s why it’s not 10 min spaghetti like mine. Ok so next time I went for my visit I asked her very excitedly and not at all joking to please make us some of her “10 min spaghetti” as much as she didn’t like that name that I still feel she coined herself, it was officially named 10 min spaghetti lol as we all began calling it! Anyway….back on track now lol here’s the recipe for a very quick last minute or….10 minute Lasagne haha!

image

“Last Minute or 10 Minute Lasagne”

66-ounce jar of Ragu® pasta sauce or whichever brand you prefer
1.5 25-oz bags of frozen large cheese ravioli, unthawed
1 cup of fresh spinach leaves (up to you)
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (or other cheese you may have on hand)
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese

image

Directions:

Heat oven to 350° F.
Spray a 13×9” baking pan with cooking spray
Spoon 1.5 cups of the Ragu® sauce in the bottom of the pan.
Place one layer of ravioli along the bottom of the pan.

Top with spinach leaves, 1/3 of sauce and 1/2 of each of the cheeses. (We only topped 1/2 of ours because of the kids who may freak out about green in their food.)

Cover with another layer of ravioli, spinach and other 1/2 of cheeses.
Add more sauce to the top and top with cheese.

Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes if ravioli was frozen or 20 minutes if it was thawed.
