Join Lisa Loeb and Crayola "Inside the Crayon Box"

Hope you are well! We wanted to share some news with you about an upcoming event that´s all about inspiring your little ones to become creatively alive with the help of Crayola. We hope you´ll be able to participate and share this information with your readers as well.

Creativity matters. It´s a skill that all children can learn and when it´s practiced every day, kids become the critical thinkers, problem solvers, and leaders in the classroom, and they´re better prepared for professions of the 21st century.

Crayola wants every child to be creatively alive, so they´re inviting parents "Inside the Crayon Box," for a special live chat with celebrities and trusted parenting experts that will inspire and spark ideas to expand your child´s creative thinking. If you find yourself looking for new ways to inspire your children to express their ideas and build their creativity, you´ll want to join us to learn and share!

The first "Inside the Crayon Box" live chat is Wednesday, March 7 at 9 p.m. EST. Join Crayola and musician, children´s author and mom, Lisa Loeb for a 45-minute live streaming video chat on the Crayola Facebook Page. Lisa, best-known for her number one hit "Stay (I Missed You)," will share as personal stories, practical advice and ways she brings a little creative play into every day for her daughter. We want to hear from you - participants can ask Lisa questions during the event, too! We hope you will share the information about the first Crayola "Inside the Crayon" live chat with your readers on or before Wednesday, March 7th so they may plan to attend as well.

Interested in the topics to be covered during the chat?

Why Does Creativity Matter? Creativity is not about who´s the best artists or becoming an architect. It´s a way of thinking that encourages kids´ original ideas and develops their confidence.
Growing Up Creative. Lisa will share stories about growing up in a home where creativity was encouraged.
Simple Tips. Easy Ideas. Like most moms, Lisa juggles a lot. She´ll share simple, easy ways she sparks her daughter´s creativity as part of their daily routine.

Auto Correct on my phone

 I always read these funny post when people talk about how when they are text messaging and there auto text puts something wrong and how funny it is. Well I never really thought that would happen to me till tonight. My daughter is staying the night at her friends house and I was wanting to check in with her so I text her friends mom and ask if she could please have Lissy call me but auto correct put could you please have Pussy call me.. I am so embarrassed, my husband thinks it's very funny but I am very embarrassed. Thank gosh she's the type of mom that will think it's funny but I'm still not at the point of thinking it's funny, in a couple days I'm sure I will be..

I know this is a late post but if anyone knows me they know I'm late to everything so why should my blog be any different. Well I woke up to flowers and candy from my husband. When my kids got home I gave them there box's of candy and decided to give them something they could use so they each got a body pillow which they they all loved. My husband brought home pizza for our kids and himself and brought me home Mexican food because I don't like pizza which I thought was very sweet of him to do after he had a long day at work but he also had another surprise for me which I was not expecting. He got me tickets to a Blake Shelton concert. I can't wait to see him! He is so nice looking and he has a nice voice as well.


My 12 year old wanted to rent this the other day so I did and my 3 kids and I sat down to watch it earlier this evening. I wasn't sure what to expect of the movie or that my kids would think much of it. Well after watching this movie I think this is a movie that schools should show to kids at school. I think this movie taught my two older kids a lot but my 8 year old was not as interested being he is not into the whole facebook thing yet. When I asked what they would do if kids were to write stuff about them online they said to write mean stuff back which is something I would want to do as well, but I did explain to them that would be egging them on and that the other person would have more of a reason to keep on writing stuff but that they should  delete and or block them. Why give them the satisfaction! After we talked about it I do think they understood. I do have to admit if I were to ever find out that anyone was messing with my kids on or offline I would be in big trouble because you can say what you want about me and I don't care but nobody messes with my kids.
