Personalized Ornaments For You Review

I simply LOVE this time of year!!! The holidays are so much fun with my grandchildren. <3

Even though I have plenty of ornaments and decorations, I always find myself in the Christmas department in whatever store I happen to be at. I’m always shopping for new decor for my tree/s. lol =)

This year – 2018, I was overjoyed to get a special email about a collaboration from PersonalizedOrnamentsForYou.com. Stephanie was so kind to offer me a $50 Gift Certificate to shop on their site for a return review about the personalized ornaments and their website.

Let me tell you…I had some fun shopping for those ornaments! <3

The website has a wide variety to choose from. I personally like their dog and cat ornaments. I especially like how they’ll add a paw print on the product for FREE! Those are adorable.

I promptly received the ornaments of my choosing. Speedy turn around for what I had ordered.

 

And hey…about the products themselves —

Excellent quality! When you hold these products in your hands, you can feel how sturdy they are.

They are also, larger than what I expected. That’s always a plus.

In addition, you can definitely tell that a lot of detail went into creating these adorable ornaments.

I WILL gladly be a return shopper!

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

The website is very well put together. PersonalizedOrnamentsForYou.com has it all properly laid out for you.

Grandparenting Tips and a Wish List From The Heart (Future)

As I sit here at my desk…11:50 AM after, drinking my coffee, paying some bills, doing 3 loads of laundry, and a few other chores for the day, I began to think about my grandchildren; as I often do. <3 <3

I began to contemplate ahead to their future. This thinking pattern had me dwelling about prom, high school, dating, arguments with Mom and Dad, romantic summers and makeup for my granddaughter, girl problems for my grandson, career decisions, car purchases, iPhones, relationships, marriage, bullying,…well, I think you got all those pictures swarming in your heads.??

At least, I hope! lol

 

So, what did all this brainstorming about the (particular) contents above accomplish? What about that (wish list)? And furthermore, those tips??

Well, let’s back up just a bit… Let me tell you something! =)

BOTH my grandkids are as smart as tacks beyond their years!

I strongly believe that (they) are quite secured with powerful wills and fearless spirits.

I also believe that they have spent their share of time thinking about their future and what they will be doing as adults; especially my sweet grandson. My grands are 8 and 5, and growing way too FAST!!! 🙁

Considering (career decisions), I’ve heard my oldest grandchild say, “I want to be a (crop farmer)” and my youngest one say, “I want to be a (vet)”

Both of those choices have a colossal of possibilities, and even MORE aspiring choices in relation to those fields.

Grandma isn’t worried in the least, because she knows they will be good at anything they decide as careers.

However, their choices could change, and change again, and YET, again before they commit! My grandchildren could even spread their wings and explore multiple advancements. They are young and have quite a long time to consider the variables.

Now, getting back to that “wish list” before I lose my train of thought here…

Well, my thoughts are all over the place!! Having said that; it is NOT my intention to make this post essentially on (career picks). 😉

This leads me to consider my health more and more. Yes, Grandma certainly needs to be, and stay healthy in order to be around when all these things take place for sure!!!

So, what’s a wish list have to do with all this?

My wish list is the assorted things that I want to be able to talk about with my grandchildren.

More to the point; I want (them) to WANT to talk about those things (with me). To share tips with them, my thoughts, and my advice.

Important Note: I do realize that I’m not an expert when it comes to grandparenting tips. 😉

*** ~~ While this is ultra important to me; I also realize it may be too tall of an order to become a reality.

In addition, Their parents NEED to be present and have their opinions, their thoughts, their own tips and advice known when discussing those important topics.
=)

All these elements will mold these (2) little people into responsible adults in tomorrow’s society…(whatever that may be). LOL ~~ With how things are going in this world today; it’s hard telling what our society will be like. 😉

Personally, I hope Jesus comes back by then…seriously.

I still have a wish list regardless. My grandkids could talk with me, AND Mom and Dad also!

The Updated List Consists Of: (I want my grands to seek advice, and tips about the following subjects from me).

1) Makeup and skin care advice: My Granddaughter

Well…of course, this would be on top of the list! LOL <3 While, I sure hope she goes to her mom for beauty advice as well. Her Momma is beautiful BTW! <3

2) Girl problems: My Grandson

Now, I can already see him going to his dad for advice about this; that’s for sure! However, I do hope that he will come to me for a tip or two. 🙂

3) Prom: My Granddaughter

I would LOVE to get the chance to make her dress. I used to sew A LOT!! I even made my dress for my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary party. I still don’t know what happened to that dress! 🙁

4) Bullying: Both My Grandson and Granddaughter

I’m not the bullying expert at all!! However, since I’ve been through it myself, I do hope I get the chance to give some advice…(if the need arises). I certainly hope it doesnt! <3<3

5) Career advice: Both My Grandson and Granddaughter

I do hope they both have their decisions made way ahead of time. With (most) kids, they end up changing their minds a dozen times; and that’s ok. That is the norm. With that being said; I would be ecstatic if they would pop their heads in the house and seek a little advice!

6) Grandchildren: Both My Grandson and Granddaughter

I certainly hope I get the chance to lend some tips and advice along the way. More IMPORTANTLY; <3 I hope I'm still living when my great grandchildren are born. <3

A Grandmother Can Dream Can’t She?!

5 Reasons We Need Grandparents More Than Ever

5 reasons we need grandparents

(Summary:
Here are the reasons why we need our grandpa and grandma more than ever.)

“A grandparent is a little bit parent, little bit teacher and a little bit best friend.”
 Anonymous

Having grandparents is one of the most blessed things in life. They nurture you with their life experiences and knowledge. Nothing is as encouraging as their kind words during the tough times.

They are the window to your parent’s childhood. They are the perfect companion to play with. Above all, they love you unconditionally.

 

This way, grandparents play the role of a guide, a motivator and a friend in one’s life. However, their role has become more important than ever in today’s scenario. Kids are getting into depression due to the maladjustment between their parents or unpleasant events like divorce and bullying. Adults are prone to drugs and crime.

Here is why we need someone with a grey hair by our side

Grandparents Have a Greater Influence on Their Grandchildren’s Lives

Several studies conclude that adult grandchildren are more likely to be influenced by their grandparent’s beliefs and values. They transmit the values and ethics of social order to their grandchildren. According to a recent AARP survey, 78% grandparents say they have taught values to their grandchildren.

Grandparents are Good Teachers:

From teaching values, good manners to some important skills, grandparents are a great mentor to their grandchildren. Their experience lets you overcome dilemma or stressful events.

 

Grandparents are Encouraging and Supportive:

Grandparents act as an extra layer of support during your tough times. Close relationships with grandparents help kids deal with behavioral and emotional problems occurring during the teenage years. Grandparents listen to their concerns, encouraging kids to open up and share their difficulties with their grandparents.

Grandparents Bridge Generation Gaps:

==========================================

When grandparents are involved in the lives of children, it helps create a link between the old and the young.

==========================================

This is extremely important because so often it is a misunderstanding that leads to social divisions in society. When young people mix up with their elders, it creates a strong bonding which eliminates the problems occurring due to the difference in attitudes. And it also benefits the society as a whole.

Grandparents Create Family Bonds and Pass On the Traditions:

Grandparents pass on the traditions and values what they have received from their elders. They make family bonds and encourage family reunion. You grow up with those values, traditions, and bonds. They hope that the same things will be instilled in the generation after you.

So you must have understood why grandparents matter more than ever in today’s scenario.

 

They are amazing people and play an important role in the lives of their grandchildren.

However, they need your love, care, affection and time too. If they are living alone and are not able to take care of themselves, consider a good home service for them.

Helpful Tips for Staying In Touch With Grandparents

Back in February, I wrote a post talking about tips for staying in touch with grandchildren who live far away. It’s often difficult and sad to not be with family all the time.

Now, I’ve decided to write about some of the best ways to stay in touch with us! The grandparents!

Tip 1: A Phone Call

There’s nothing better than hearing a familiar voice on the phone after a while of not hearing that voice. In this day and age, it’s often hard to grab someone’s attention long enough to talk on the phone. Never underestimate the power of a “how are you?”/check-in phone call. We want to know what’s going on in your life if you’re eating your veggies, and doing your homework.

It goes a long way in our hearts!


Tip 2: Send Flowers

A flower delivery not only makes your grandparents smile, but it also improves our mental health. A recent Rutgers Behavioral Study found that flowers have an immediate impact on happiness. All study participants expressed “true” or “excited” smiles upon receiving flowers, demonstrating extraordinary delight and gratitude.

In fact, 81% of seniors who participated reported a reduction in depression after receiving flowers. =)

Even the colors of flowers can affect our moods! Red is an energy booster, purple is a sleep-aid and stress reliever, while green enhances relaxation.

All could be very beneficial to older people who might be experiencing fatigue and stress.

Next time you’re looking for a gift to give your grandparents or are just looking to send them something, flower delivery are a great idea. 😉

Tip 3: Handmade Card

If there’s one thing grandparents love, it’s handmade items.

It shows you took the time out of your busy day to make something just for us. It makes us feel special and even closer to you, especially from the little ones!

Feel free to send cute drawings, handmade cards, or even just pictures stuffed into a card. All are so fun to receive, and we can hang them up on the fridge so that we can see them every day.

It’s easy to get caught up in your own world and forget about family members you don’t see as often anymore. We understand! But even the little things can make such a big difference to us. Keep that in mind!

For Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month: Learning to Cope with a Mesothelioma Diagnosis as a Parent/Grandparent

Finding out you’ve been diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma, or peritoneal mesothelioma can come as a shock at any stage of life, but especially when you’re a parent or grandparent.

You probably want nothing more than the reassurance that you’re going to be there to care for and interact with the precious children in your life for years to come. It’s important to consider the emotional trauma that can result from your mesothelioma diagnosis. Taking steps to deal with your apprehensions and fears is a vital aspect of your treatment.

Your Emotional State Can Impact Your Overall Well-Being

The physical side effects of mesothelioma can actually be exacerbated when you ignore your emotional state. But if you find effective outlets for common feelings associated with a diagnosis, you may enhance your lifestyle. There are a number of different options you could try to process your emotions in a healthy way.


Develop a Support Network

Finding a local support group or getting involved in one-on-one therapy sessions with a counselor who’s experienced at helping cancer patients cope could prove highly beneficial for you. There is strength in numbers.

Talking to a group of other cancer patients who can sympathize with your feelings is often a huge relief.

Hearing ways they were able to effectively cope with their diagnosis can be empowering. Honestly expressing your frustrations and fears in a non-threatening, accepting environment can provide a much-needed release of pent-up emotions.

Consider Encouraging Loved Ones to Seek Support

If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, your family and friends will undoubtedly be facing emotional battles of their own. You can let them know that you’re in favor of them joining a support group for loved ones of cancer patients if they feel led to do so.

Your children, grandchildren, spouse, or other family members probably want to stay as positive and strong around you as possible, so they may suppress many of their negative emotions.

But it’s normal for them to feel overwhelmed during this difficult time as well. Finding others who are experiencing or have experienced similar circumstances can be a big morale booster for them.

Learning to Live One Day at a Time

One of the biggest struggles those diagnosed with mesothelioma often face is uncertainty. You may be uncertain about your treatment options, the symptoms of your condition, your prospects for the future, and the toll it’s all going to take on your family. You may not feel like you have the time or energy to be the kind of parent or grandparent you want to be. These feelings are completely normal.

Learning to take life one day at a time, be good to yourself, and not feel guilty for anything beyond your control can help both you and your family to cope.

If you or a loved one are suffering from a chronic illness with a high mortality rate, remember your biggest challenge is always you. Keeping some of the above in mind is by no means an all-encompassing solution to coping, but it could be a good start.

For the month of March and in honor of Colorectal Awareness Month, please say a prayer for those living and/or affected by mesothelioma related cancers. <3

Rainy-Day Activities With the Grandkids

Grand Parenting Advice and Tips for Indoor Activities

The sun may be shining today, but rest assured there will be days when the raindrops come down so hard and so fast that spending the day outdoors isn’t an option.

Thankfully, there are still plenty of ways to keep your grandkids engaged even when you’re stuck inside.

Cooking

Cooking is an intergenerational pastime that allows you to bond with your grandchildren while passing down cherished family recipes. But the kitchen is one of the most dangerous rooms in the home for a child. The risks of burns, food poisoning, and other injuries is high.

However, many of these can be mitigated with a little foresight. The definition of a kid-friendly kitchen won’t be the same for each child and can vary with age. HomeAdvisor offers a host of valuable information including links on how to eliminate eliminate common kitchen dangers and tips on burn prevention.

Science Made Fun

You don’t have to have a degree in biology to instill a love of science in your grandchildren. You likely have plenty of supplies at your fingertips to do a little hands-on science learning—no experience required. A few of the most interesting experiments include constructing a fizzy balloon inflator, building a potato or lemon clock, and making your own electromagnet. EarthScienceJr.com is an excellent resource with many easy-to-follow lesson plans, including how to make your own glass of lava.


Always keep safety equipment, including a fire extinguisher and safety goggles, on hand and open a window if you’ll be working with anything that emits unpleasant or dangerous fumes.

A Little Hobby Goes a Long Way

There’s a good chance that your own children—your grandchildren’s parents—have fallen into a routine that, unfortunately, doesn’t include time for hobbies. But, mounting evidence suggests that exposure to recreational activities has significant benefits. Psychology Today notes that these include stress management and self-concept formation, each of which are valuable skills for children to develop.

Use these rainy days to help your grandchildren identify activities they are not only good at but enjoy as well. Younger kids might delight in coloring, which can transform into a love of art, photography, or graphic design. Older children may find interest in a more hands-on hobby like woodworking, which teaches the concept of mathematics and engineering.

Children involved with hobbies that require the use of hand or power tools should always wear safety gear and only have access to the tools under the supervision of a responsible adult. Keep the garage or workroom locked unless it’s occupied to prevent wandering and curiosity from becoming a trip to the ER.

Take a Look at a Book

If mobility is an issue or you aren’t comfortable working in the kitchen or garage with younger kids, you can always snuggle up together on the couch with a book. Reading is a fundamental skill that is not only learned in the classroom.

Children learn to read by watching how adults follow along with words and listening to rhythmic tones and inflections while being read to. The Washington Post explains that reading out loud is also an opportunity to get silly and enjoy a good laugh together.

Don’t be discouraged if your grandchildren can’t sit through a book or interrupt to ask questions. Part of the journey toward literacy involves taking time to process information and reading deeper into the story by probing for details that aren’t in the text.

No matter the activity, hobbies such as cooking, crafting, and learning about the way the world works are not only fun, they lay a foundation upon which your grandchildren can grow their passions.

Who knows, you might be nurturing the next Mario Batali or Marie Curie. Even more importantly, time spent bonding with your grandchildren creates memories that will last a lifetime.

Grandparenting Tips For Staying In Touch Across The Miles

When thinking about grandparenting tips for this situation, having an open mind and a good attitude is key

As I sat down to blog this morning, I had a horrible thought.

Yep, I sure did! 🙁 I was thinking…

“Wow, I CAN’T (even start to imagine) a long distance relationship with MY grandchildren!!” <3 <3 My two blessings live just (2) houses away from me. I can see their house clearly, and can easily walk to them.

My husband and I share a very close bond with our grands.

Being a grandparent has been an amazing experience! For both of us!

As I continued harboring over long distance grandparenting, I started to think of a few tips on communicating and staying in touch with little ones while miles away.

There are many things that can be done to make communicating easier…AND interesting!


However, let’s face it; there isn’t ANYTHING like giving your grandchild a physical, bear hug, is there? <3

Here Are My (6) Tips

Skype, Facetime, and Hangouts is usually the first thought when staying in touch across the miles. However, grandparents can make it fun and creative. 😉

1. A conversation game may be a good activity choice for ages 5 and up. With this one, there are many ideas to consider. For starters, a question game like… “What’s your favorite book?” Or, it could be colors, foods, cartoons, and so on. Reading stories is also another good option for toddlers. Of course, with younger children; it’s up to the grandma or grandpa to make it fun and exciting.

2. For older grandchildren, help with homework would be an awesome option. This would also, help take some of the load off of the parents. You can do a lot while on Skype, Facetime, and Hangouts.

3. Playing games online is great for learning. Games like, Hangman, Chess, and Scrabble are good for starters. With today’s technology, the options are endless. Monopoly is another choice. For some children, these could be a tad boring. However, as I shared above; it’s the grandparent’s duty to make it fun. 😉

4. Telephone and mail are both imperative when keeping in touch with your grand young ones. Grandparents can schedule phone calls…maybe once or twice per week. Care packages could be fun for mailing. There could be care packages for illness, first day of school, activities for long summer days, holidays, gifts for first communion and confirmation, and finally birthdays.

5. Schedule 3 or 4 visits throughout the year… Or, however many your finances will allow. With long distance relationships, more is always better. With special holidays, graduations, and birthdays, planning a trip is obvious for most grandparents and grandchildren. A planned, (long trip) could also be an option. Of course, this is something that would have to be agreed upon by all family members.

6. Online apps can be a great help with communicating with your grands. The Instagram app is excellent for sharing photos. Adding captions is a lot of fun on Instagram. The Whats App is always a good choice for keeping in touch. It’s a good idea for instant messaging and also, another good photo-sharing app. If you have Wifi, sending instant messages shouldn’t be a problem.

There are also some good music apps to share music interests. Although, grandparents and grandchildren may have different views on music. — LOL — Often times that is the case. However, putting various views on music aside, there are (2) awesome apps for music that come to mind.

Both Spotify and Pandora are excellent. Also, they both have free versions. The free versions are customizable, but with a few ads mixed in. You can listen ad-free for a small fee.

Important Note:I understand that when considering all the above tips for long distance relationships, of course, all parties must agree.

The most important thing of all is to keep all communication open and stay in touch with your grandchildren. <3 <3

Three Ways to Help Your Grandchildren Achieve Career Success

By: Karleen Tauszik

When you look back over your years of employment, how do you feel? Did you enjoy your jobs? Were they a good match for your talents and skills? In retirement, do you find yourself pursuing new interests while wondering Why didn’t I do this sooner? Can you help your grandchildren stay focused on their own individual talents and interests, and help steer them on a more satisfying career path than the one you perhaps had? Fortunately, the answer is yes! 😀

Enthusiasm

First, be open to your grandchildren’s enthusiasm. By age six, children realize that they are a separate entity from their parents. They’re usually eager to show off what they’re good at. Also, by that age, they realize that they will eventually grow up and have some sort of work to do. Adults are often asking them, “What do you want to be when you grow up?”, so this is something they often consider as they look around and observe the many jobs that people hold.

But, of course, from a child’s perspective many jobs look fun and glamorous when in fact, they are not. Kids may dream of working as a tightrope walker, or a ballet dancer, or a basketball player, or a counter clerk at their favorite fast food restaurant. They don’t take risk, training, or pay rate into consideration.


Discussion

Second, take time for discussion. Their naivete doesn’t mean you can laugh at their ideas. Responding with, “Don’t be silly!” or “You can’t be that!” will shut down communication, and it tells them there are right and wrong answers to the “What do you want to be?” question. That can steer them away from their true interests and talents.

Instead, ask, “What part of that job do you think you’d like?” When you discover the main attraction of that dream job, you can then discuss it further, talking about how certain talents they have could be a good match, and suggesting other job ideas that would use those talents. Also, in an age-appropriate way, discuss your own career path—what went well, and where you could have done better in your job decisions.

Encouragement

Third, emphasize their interests and areas of giftedness. Make comments such as, “You’re so good at…” or “Not everyone can do that as easily as you do.” Often, we don’t see our own skills as particularly outstanding, but reminders like these can help kids remember what they’re good at. Encourage their talents whenever the opportunity arises. And when it’s time to buy gifts, find books or toys that will reinforce their skills and plant seeds for a future career.

Currently, studies repeatedly show that over half of all Americans dislike their jobs. We certainly don’t want those dismal statistics to continue for our grandchildren. If you stay open to their enthusiasm about jobs, discuss their ideas, and emphasize their talents, you’ll be helping to steer them toward a successful and fulfilling career that’s a great match for their unique talents and interests.

Tips On How To Be A Fantastic Grandmother

grandparent_and_grandchild (image credit: boomerhighway.org)

There are great grandmothers, and there are those who, even if their intentions are pure, make life harder for mom and dads. Are you a first-time grandmother who wants to be remembered by the family as the best grandparent ever? Here are some ideas that you may want to consider.

Volunteer as babysitter sometimes

Being a new mom or dad is hard. It takes commitment for 24 hours a day, but that doesn’t mean the parent can’t take a break. If you have time in your hands, visit your new grandson or granddaughter and let the parents have their alone time. Tell them to hit the road and have fun every once in a while or take a long, nice bath without having them worry about the kids crying.

Lead by example

Grandparents should lead by example if they want to teach parents how to do parenting properly. Show them that the kids should always be important no matter how tough times get. In other countries that are ravaged by war, parents always think of their kids first by seeking aid from charities that provide free food and education. If you’re comfortably living in a free country, there’s no reason not to prioritize kids. A child’s education, health, and happiness are very important so don’t forget to provide them this while offering them love and support along the way. Help the child do his or her homework, feed them healthy food, and make them happy by doing little thoughtful things for them.

Give positive encouragement

Being very critical of new parents can be detrimental to their progress. As such, when they do something wrong, don’t correct them by shouting or making them feel like they just did the worst mistake a person can make. Instead, lead by example and suggest ways on how to improve their parenting style. You’ve been there, and you’ve done that so they will listen to you. And when they do something right, praise them. Encouragement and positive feedback goes a long way.

Grandparents Tips for Cleaning After The Grandkids’ Visit

cleaningproductsfromkids

It’s always nice to have the grandkids staying for a couple of days or weeks. After the fun, it comes the time to take care of the damages. Organizing is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the mess created by the curious and extremely active infants. Prepare the mop and vacuum cleaner and get your home back on track with a simple domestic cleaning.

Take Precautions


Even if you didn’t take advantage of these tips this time, you will be prepared for the next visit. In order to preserve larger part of your home tidy, you should set a playing area. This will not only make your cleaning routine easier, but it will also ensure a safety environment for your grandkids. Childproofing a certain room will give you the needed security. However, you should still take certain measures to make your entire home safe for the kids. You need to establish certain limits and rules. It’s difficult to play tough with your grandkids, but it’s for their own good.

Grandparents Tips for Cleaning  After The Grandkids1

If you want to maintain your home neat, you should encourage the children to clean after themselves. The habit can be adopted by kids at any age. Believe it or not, even pre – scholars will gladly contribute to the cleaning routine. You should only ask them kindly. Kids are very helpful at that age. It can be something simple like wiping up the table. Ask older children to wash the dishes or do their own laundry. Chances are, their mom and dad already make them do this. Assign different chores and you will not have to worry for falling behind with your cleaning tasks.

Divide Your Work

Don’t try to deal with more things than you can. If you overwork, you will probably get tired or even feel sick. Create a plan and tackle one task at a time. Start with the most urgent things like dealing with a dirty pile of dishes or vacuuming. De- cluttering is also essential for the domestic cleaning. You need to put back toys and clothes that are dispersed around your home. The next step is to put the laundry in the washing machine. Window cleaning and dusting are optional. Treat only the areas that require your immediate action.

Close Reach

Prepare a basket with all the cleaning products and tools you will need. Going back and forth your house, just to fetch a sponge or a brush will only exhaust you. Be sure that you have everything you need before starting your home cleaning. However, don’t worry if you don’t have that particular stain remover. Super grandmother like you probably has one or two old – school tricks for dealing with the nasty spills.

Grandparents Tips for Cleaning  After The Grandkids2

Ask For Help

If your grandchildren left you with apocalyptical situation, you can always get a help. Hiring a professional cleaning service will save you a lot of efforts for a certain cost. After all, the last thing you want is risking your health.

Enjoy fully the visit of your beloved grandchildren without worrying about the cleaning after that.
