Hi I’m a cashier and Im terrible at math.

Hi I am a cashier, and truth is I’m not smart in the way people want me to be. I mess up alot but I have a great heart and I can make friends with all gaps of people and truth is I try my damn best.
But that doesn’t make for the ideal person according to most, and when people stare at me like I’m stupid when I struggle and tell me what I should have learned in school I get sad.
I never got diagnosed with a learning disability but I struggled alot during school and probably should have. These people tell me all these mean things and I just look back at them thinking how I would handle a situation like that in their shoes, possibly helped that person out so they didn’t feel like the whole world was watching them fail.
For all you could have known I might of had a learning disability, I could of even had autism, and of course I don’t but they wouldn’t care even if I did. They see a girl behind the counter who is struggling to count and they call me like they see me, stupid. They don’t even know me.
Your sad life and small words make ME feel small at first..but once you go away the pain in my heart you caused only stays until the next customer smiles because of me, that is what I work for!

I can see the finish line when I haven’t even started, and its daunting. 

I am terrible at finishing things. My homework, projects, and I guess now that I think about even relationships have gotten strung along more than they should have in the past few years. Now I really don’t know why I do this.  I can’t tell if I’m getting bored, lazy, or maybe somthing deeper. I always have either someone telling me my ideas might end bad, or I myself get the feeling that what I’m attempting to do is going to crash and burn. So maybe I am trying to see the finish line before I even start. I’m not sure, but it really makes it hard to even try to begin. -Shaila

How to potty train in 3 days!

The night before you start:

-Prepare yourself and your toddler for the day ahead. Talk to your toddler about going potty. Talk about how excited you are that they are becoming a big girl/boy! Tell them that starting tomorrow, there are no more diapers! 

Day one:

-From the moment your toddler wakes up, NO MORE DIAPERS. Put underwear on them and explain to them again that diapers are a thing of the past!

-Put them on the toilet every 20 minutes. Constantly ask if they have to go potty (to the point where you’re sick of saying it)!

-If they successfully use the potty, make a BIG DEAL! Brooklynn would get so excited when she went potty because we were excited for her! I would say, “I’m so proud of you!” Every time she goes potty (to this day), she says, “you’re so proud of me, mommy!” Make sure to utilize the potty training chart and have your toddler put a sticker on it when they go! We did one sticker for pee and two stickers for poop!

-Put Pull-Ups on at nap time and nighttime. Try to avoid family outings for the first two days. If you have to leave, make sure to put a Pull-Up on them!

-There will be a lot of accidents. Don’t get mad, don’t get frustrated, don’t give up. This is normal!

Day two:

-Same thing as day one. By this point, your toddler should start to understand the feeling of wetting themselves and trust me, they won’t like it!

-On day two, Brooklynn had ONE accident total. One!!! 

Day three:

On day three, we had our first outing! We put our toddler in a pull-up and made sure to ask her every thirty minutes or so, “do you have to go potty?” She went potty once at the restaurant we were dining at and had zero accidents. It’s been about four weeks since I’ve been able to say that she is officially potty trained. She has had a few poop accidents, but ZERO pee accidents!

How to use a potty training chart to successfully potty train:

Print out THIS free potty training chart and tape it to the mirror or wall in the bathroom. Every time your child successfully uses the restroom, they get to put a sticker on one of the circles. When they fill up an entire row (four stickers), they get a prize or treat! We chose to do little pieces of candy as our “prize” because Brooklynn is highly motivated by candy, LOL. You can adjust the guidelines of the potty chart to fit your family and toddler. For instance, poop can be worth 2-4 stickers depending on how well they’re catching on!

Tips

-Get a potty seat that goes on the regular toilet. My daughter thought the little kid’s potty (the portable kind) was a toy and didn’t take it seriously. Having her use the “real potty” made her feel like she was a big girl. Plus, she wanted to be “like mommy” and use the real potty.

-Get Pull-Ups Learning DesignsTrust me on this one! We tried three different brands total. Huggies is the only brand we were 100% satisfied with! The Huggies Pull-Ups offer more coverage, they are super soft and comfortable, they slide on and off easily, they are extremely absorbent, they come in two different styles (Disney’s Doc McStuffins and Pixar’s Cars Lightning McQueen), and they have a wetness indicator that shows Disney Character art when wet!

-Don’t give up!

Life in the one way lane

When I was fourteen years old, I fell in love with a guy over the internet who lived in a different state. After a year he moved to mine. Sounds crazy to do that for a fifteen year old huh? Anyways we were together for two years exactly.. When I say exactly I mean we broke up for good after are two year anniversary date, which essentially was the best decision of my life and the midst awkward meal of Chinese I’ve ever had. We broke up because of his constant cheating. I soon figured out that that whole year before he moved here he was doing the same thing! Yippee.

I have now been in a relationship with a different man for a little over two years, he is truly great to me. I’ve really have never not been in a relationship though. I don’t know if I mind though. I like stability. I’ve pretty much always had my roads choosen for me. I don’t have a problem with that, if I chose the road it’d probably be the worst one. 

From the time I turned 16, I wanted a credit score. When I turned 17, I had named every single one of my unborn unconcieved children.
Eden Elezabith, Ezra Alan, Willow Renee, and Asher lane. (Only ones SO FAR)

As you can see, I’m a little different. I’ve never really been a teenager. At least never felt like one, didn’t really want to. I always wanted to skip a few years and be a mommy. I can only imagine the “awes” 3rd Grade teachers get when their kids say they want to be a parent when they grow up.

If you do that now a days at my age people will tell you that’s a TERRIBLE idea. I find it amusing that they don’t think I’d be the best mom their ever was. Jk, haha there are some awesome mom’s out there!

Sounds crazy? Sound familiar? Message me!

My Baby Bins

I’m not looking for judgement, I’m just here to inspire women and men who do the same thing. I do this because I enjoy it, and I have a little extra money to spend sometimes and why not spend it on somthing as important as my future children… 💘

My baby Ezra Alan’s bin, and my daughter Eden Elezabith’s bin!!!! I’ll show you what’s inside….

Here I have my soaps, some wittle socks, two outfits and a few books from my child hood!!

A cute little bear blanket I found, possibly for Ezra.

Winnie the Pooh blanket for any one of my babies nurseries!!! Beautiful.

Alot of my baby boy outfits, and a bumble Bee bathing suit slipped in there cause I ran out of room!

Here’s my girly clothes!!! Eden’s outfits 😍

Finally some honesty brand diapers and lotions. Along with a lil blanket and a exact replica of a stuffed bunny I had when I was little, I found the identical bunny at a yard sale!

To my unborn, unconceived daughter Eden.

You, my darling Eden,

are the reason for my happiness. Your existence allows me to smile as much as I do. You are the very reason I kept going when I believed I couldn’t go any longer. You keep me sane through the most difficult of times. I honestly do not know what I would do without you. I love you with all of my heart. You will

forever be my greatest creation.

I feel like you should know that you were a little different from other babies. Now don’t let that scare you. You were a completely healthy, beautiful baby girl. What made YOU so different was that you were a thought.

“A thought is something you think of before you do something.”

Some babies are not really thought of

until they make their surprise entrance into mommy’s life. But unlike those others; you were a thought before you were a surprise!

You were so many things Eden. You were a dream, a miracle, an obsession, a figment of my teenage imagination.

Until your daddy and I finally decided it was time to bring you here. To the place we always dreamt youd be; right here beside us starting our little family.
