Nell’s First Solo Dance (Pics!)

I know that most people don’t care about pictures of my kids – totally understandable – but some of you have been my friends for years and years! So I wanted to share this special night with you. Jenelle has attended dances in the past, but Rachel has always escorted her (like to the Father/Daughter dances). She’s never been dropped off at a dance, and then picked up 2 hours later. I swear, those 2 hours were the longest ever! {Read More}

Gracelynn Update

Just wanted to write a quick update on Gracelynn! :) Thank you for all the emails and PMs. I appreciate them. Back story cliff’s notes: Grace started this new school at the beginning of January. From day 1 she came home complaining that she hated it. Her teacher has 29 students in one classroom, and they’re all 7-8 year olds. It’s a city school, and sometimes things get a little crazy. She said her teacher constantly yelled at her. In {Read More}

Cookie's Kids

The girls are beyond excited that their new school doesn’t have a uniform policy. Well, they actually have one, but for some reason nobody is enforcing it, so all of the students wear regular clothes. We were in dire need of new clothes now that the girls no longer wear School Uniforms, so I knew just what to do. I logged onto Cookie’s Kids website and got started. While browsing, I noticed an icon by the size button. It’s called {Read More}

how to stop bullying

**This post includes bad language – quoted from other kids at school – so please don’t read in front of little ones.** I’ve posted on Facebook several times about the issues I was having with my daughters’ school this week. To make a very long story kind of short, my 5 year old, Sapphire, was called a “bitch” and a “whore” on her first day of school by another student at recess. She told the teacher, and the teacher basically {Read More}

school lunch ideas

When it comes to packing school lunches, a little creativity is needed or your kids will get bored and may end up trading a bag of carrots for a handful of M&Ms. EEK! The list below will help you with school lunch ideas. They’re not all vegetarian, even though that’s all WE will be using, because I know a lot of Slap Dash Mom readers are … gasp… carnivores. :) So, enjoy this list – meat and all – for {Read More}

Ideal Uniform Has Us Covered For Back2School!

It’s no secret that I’m SUPER excited about my girls having to wear uniforms to school now. I think uniforms make it super simple in the morning, they’re easy to pass down from kid to kid (and with three girls that’s really helpful!), and they’re affordable because you don’t have to worry about name-brand this, name-brand that. We absolutely love French Toast for our uniforms, so I was excited to see that Ideal Uniform has French Toast brand! I spent {Read More}
