What A Six-Year-Old Boy Wants For Christmas


My son just turned six and is already talking about presents he wants for Christmas. He really isn’t the one to ask for much. He is the type of kid that would rather just have the family together. I know commercials can suck a child into something ridiculous but these gift ideas are not only for him to enjoy but for the whole family too.

My son has all of these toys, he just would like more of them. He enjoys playing with these toys (so do I). These are toys you can trust. A lot of them are toys my husband and I have been playing with when we were young. I know this was short and sweet but to the point, if you liked this post check out some other stories. I hope you liked my list let me know if I missed Anything. Love ya, Mary xoxo

Why Children Sleepwalk?


My oldest will probably be mad at me when he learns I posted this but I think it’s important to know what you should do when you see your child sleepwalking. First of all, I want to tell you that it completely freaks me out seeing children walk or talk in their sleep.


It is so important to know, NEVER wake them up. You could scare them. Even when their eyes are open they don’t see the same as if they are awake.


Some reasons your child might be sleepwalking

  • lack of sleep or fatigue
  • irregular sleep schedules
  • illness or fever
  • some medicines
  • stress
  • they need to use the restroom

The first time my son sleepwalked was when he was almost four-years-old. He ran to his closet and started peeing. I honestly thought it was our dog peeing on the floor. It was only about an hour after I put him to bed. Of course, I wanted to freak out but I just guided him to the toilet. Then put him right to bed. I asked him in the morning if he knew that he got up to go to the bathroom and he had no idea. He did it about two other times. Then I realized those were nights he didn’t go right to the bathroom before he went to sleep.


Whenever I tell my son that he was sleepwalking/peeing, he laughs and of course. Instantly he starts walking around like a zombie. I guess that’s what he thinks he looks like when he sleepwalks. I would really FREAK out if that was the case. LOL

It’s actually quite scary to see your child sleepwalking. My sister had a friend that would get up in the night and walk straight out their front door. YIKES!!!

After, I swear I saw my grandma (check the story out here) I always felt like when someone was sleep talking “the dead” was trying to tell me something through them. I feel very silly saying this. Does anybody else feel this way? Let me know if your kids sleepwalk or talk and what do they say? Hope I haven’t freaked you out so close to Halloween:) Love Ya, Mary xoxox

Do You Have These Halloween Traditions?

Do you have lots of family traditions? Thanks to my mom I make every little (or big) holiday special. Growing up, my mom would decorate the table up when we went to sleep. When we woke up we were so excited to see how the table was dressed up.

At each of our seats, we would have Halloween plates and napkins. There would be a little goody bag of Halloween treats (pencil, fake teeth, spider rings, eraser, and some candy). We would have something Halloween related for breakfast (Halloween doughnuts, green monster milk).

My mother owned a childcare center when I was growing up. She would put together a parade downtown with other schools, bands, and firetrucks. The whole community would come to see all the children in their costumes. As time went on, unfortunately, many people stop participating. She still would have a parade at her center for all the children. Those are things that I looked forward to when I was little and I wanted to still have those traditions with my children.

For dinner, we would have mummy hot dogs and orange and black chips. Then we would get ready to trick or treat. We would then trick or treat together. When we got home we went through all our candy and switched out candy with sisters. I packed some away for later and what we were planning to share with our friends the next day.

Go ahead and check out some other Halloween activities I do with my boys throughout the month of October.

Now, when my boys wake up they have a table to come to with goodies at their seat. We play dress up and have a little parade around the house. We have a little party and play games and make spooky treats. I like to make orange pumpkin rice Krispie treats but now that they are getting older, they help too. I’ll use Halloween cookie cutters to make their sandwiches and make tortilla chips too. We also watch Halloween movies. For dinner, we go to my mom’s house to have dinner with her.

We then will trick or treat all the way to our house. (We live in the same neighborhood as my mom) Once we get home we will pass candy out for a little bit. The candy usually goes with my husband to share at work. I will end the night with a Halloween book and head to bed. I hope you enjoyed our Halloween traditions. I’d love to hear if you have any  Halloween traditions. Love ya, Mary xoxo

Homemade Natural Face Scrub

I’ve always had issues with breakouts on my face. (probably a reason why people think I’m 18.) My face is very oily (thanks to my Italian background) I could never find anything that really helped. Or anything I actually wanted to put on my face. Since I had kids I’ve been trying to find everything that is natural or organic. You never really think of those things until you have another little life to take care of. So here is what I use to make my face scrub I use EVERYDAY!

Fun Facts:

Baking Soda- helps with acne and skin complexion.

ACV- Removes oil and helps balance skin PH.

Lemon Juice- Natural blackhead treatment.

Honey- Helps slow aging.

Tea tree oil- Helps with spots, pimples, and dryness

Cinnamon- Unclogs and opens pores by removing excess oil.


Items You Will Need:

Baking Soda-1&1/4 cup

ACV-2 Tablespoons (add slowly)

Lemon Juice-1 Tablespoon

Honey-2 Tablespoons

Tea tree oil-8-10 drops

Cinnamon-1/2 teaspoon

Water-3/4 cup

Empty Bottle-15-16 OZ (I used an empty body wash bottle)

Helpful Hints:

Shake well before every use.

For best results let it sit on your face for at least 10 mins.

Don’t get in your eyes.

It will tingle a little.

If it feels too runny, add a little more baking soda.

If it feels too thick, add a little more water.

Hey, let me know what you think! I would love to hear if you have tried it out. Love ya, Mary xoxox

Gift Ideas For Your Daughter When Starting Her Period

So you are reading this now, might mean you have a moody tween. It’s that time to start looking for some gift ideas for your daughter. My mom always came up with crazy things for us to celebrate. We didn’t pick out toys at the store for no reason but we did celebrate every holiday. One of them, becoming a woman, celebrating our periods. This can be embarrassing for some girls especially since it seems girls are starting their periods earlier and earlier. I believe I started mine when I was almost 15. But then again I still don’t get my period every month. Keep reading for more gift ideas.
