I am tired of seeing all of the infomercials for miracle diets, or workout videos that everyone is promoting. Even funny looking gadgets that are supposed to have you slim in no time. I REALLY want to lose weight this year, and I...

ScrappinHappyMom I have been doing Weight Watchers. So far I have lost a little over 10 pounds which doesn't sound like much but because I am learning how to eat responsibly I was able to continue to lose weight over the holiday season. I like this plan because you still eat...

I am having a problem shopping for my eight year old little girl.She is wanting dolls and play things of that sort. I feel as though she is a bit too old for things of that nature. I try to show her things that are more her age...

ScrappinHappyMom Personally I think you should let her decide what she wants. I have a 15 year old I get his Christmas list now and I wish for the days when he wanted Tonka trucks and matchbox cars. They grow up so fast all on their own, don't push her too, one day it will...

Not the toilet door, not the bedroom door but the main door. Yes, the main door to your house. Before you pull out your bunch of keys and unlock the gate/door, do you look around you first? You know, what if a stranger suddenly...

ScrappinHappyMom I look around from the moment I pull into the driveway but I'm not looking for people. We live in the mountains, I am totally paranoid about being attacked by a wild animal. Twice I have come home to a mountain lion hanging out on the back hill and once to a...

I have a very stubborn 2 year old boy. He will pretty much let you know right off the bat what he likes and dislikes. And this boy of mine simply hates taking baths. But he would swim in a pool all day long. So I started to tell...

ScrappinHappyMom Every parent must do what works for them and their children. Your sister would have given you a mouthful if you spanked him and made the bath experience frightening. Or if you just gave up and let him be stinking and dirty. At least your son is getting clean...

I am a mother of 5 kids 4 of them live with me. My oldest is 8 and my youngest is 2. I tend to ask my 8 year old son Eryk to do stuff for me a lot. Such as Eryk can you please get me a diaper or find Angels cup. Or Eryk can you...

ScrappinHappyMom I think it is perfectly fine to have the older children help you with little things like grab a diaper. Have you ever seen that family with sixteen kids? All the mom does is have babies and breastfeed the kids do everything else laundry, dishes, cleaning the...

Kitchen gadgets make our experiences in the kitchen more pleasurable. What would we do without that french fry slicer or the electric knife? Whatever did our ancestors do to cut a roast or turkey without the use of the electric...

ScrappinHappyMom Sometimes my husband jokes that he should have been a cowboy riding the range in the 1800's because he just doesn't fit in with all this technology. I say no way man! I couldn't live without my pressure cooker, crock pot, electric mixer, veggie choper, and...

This discussion is for both males and females (amoebas pls refrain), young and old, married and single (whichever stage). The concept of wearing a ring is certainly not a new one. It stretches far back to the year XYZ (pls do...

ScrappinHappyMom I wear two rings all the time my wedding ring that is fused with my engagement diamond. And my ten year anniversray band. They fit together nicely and they mean so much to me. I do take them off for cleaning and sleeping because for whatever strange reason I...

I made a post about babylegs awhile back and everyone said they were really girly. LOL. But I decided to get a couple of pairs anyways since his rug burn was so bad from crawling. Check out my boy! PS he wasn't going to drink out...

ScrappinHappyMom You need to get legal help because you could very well end up in jail. My sister got a suspended sentence two years ago because her daughter had missed so much school even though she was able to prove it was all medical and beyond her control. Contact the...
