Let their imagination’s run wild

You have to love websites like Pinterest, where you can search different crafts and DIY’s. I know I do. I pin to my heart’s content, and rarely make anything that I pin. Mostly because of time , but also because who wants to spend 40 dollars on craft supplies for one project?

Now don’t get me wrong here, I love Pinterest and envy anyone who creates such stunning craftery. Is that a word? I love crafting with the kids, we just don’t make crafts on a constant basis. They love to draw and color, write stories. They get to be creative on their own, instead of me directing their creative little minds. oh, how I love their creative little minds.

This morning started like any other, I grabbed my coffee and put on a show for the kiddos. After a few minutes, I noticed how quiet the kids were being, and that is always cause for concern. If I’m being honest, I enjoyed the quiet for a little too long before I checked on them. When I did check on them. they were actually getting along and entertaining themselves! mark this day in history people!

I had put on the show creative galaxy for them, and they said they were inspired. Let me tell you those little cuties were making rocket ships out of water bottle and robots out of supplies found in the pantry. The pantry people! They were the cutest little robots and rocket ships I have ever seen, but I am a little biased.

While it is fun to create pinworthy projects, kids don’t neccessarily need that to spark creativitiy. They can imagine, and create things from around the house. i also do not have to be the one to entertain them constantly as they can entertain themselves which i think is a valuable lesson to them later on in life. Now, before anyone thinks i do not play with my kids, i do. We play plenty. I just do not feel the need to entertain them constantly.

Let kid’s imagination run wild, and something beautiful may happen.

I am a wife of ten years, mom of three, Nurse and student! My household is quite chaotic and busy. With a six year old going on sixteen. we shall call her "Sassy", a four year old, who is stubborn as a mule, she shall be called " mini me", and a one year old, we will call "Buddy". Our girls do Ballet, and our son, well he is all boy! Very curious and always getting in to something. When we found out we were having a boy i laughed and said " god must have known we needed a little less diva in our life," Ha, little boys are quite the handful! I love my kids with all of my heart, and i love my job too! As a nurse leader i get to see many sides to healthcare and help encourage and guide new nurses. I love taking care of patients and being able to have grown up talk and then come home to my babies. The house is usually chaotic with lots of tantrums, and messes, but i wouldn't change it for a bit. On the rare occasion that i am able to have some spare time to myself, i like to read, bake and decorate cakes, and take pictures of my kiddos. Time to myself is rare so i decided to start this blog to have a creative outlet and connect with other working moms, who might be going through the same situations as myself. I hope you enjoy my thoughts and stories as a mom, student, wife and Nurse! These stories will range from Diapers and tutus to meetings and boardrooms! and everything that falls in between. Enjoy and thanks for visiting my site.
