Kids

These post are kid friendly activities, stories about my own two children or kid related topics.

Black Mermaid Decal

Hey Cuties, It is officially summer vacation in the MimiCuteLips household. I  have a Kindergartner and an Eighth Grader. I'm probably more excited about this break than they are. Hello staying up late, not checking homework and relaxing a bit more.  You know I love a good DIY but the Manchild suggested I do a DIT. What is that you ask? Do it Together. 12-year-olds are amusing.  With his idea in mind LittleCuteLips and I did a DIT project.

Do Your Kids Know How To Fight Allergies?

Hey Cuties, We are in the last week of these April showers that are making way for May flowers. While I'm thrilled about the consistently warm temperatures the children and I are knee deep in allergy suffrage.  Myself and the man-child are allergic to trees, weeds, and grass. I don't know what LittleCuteLips allergy triggers are but I know they are seasonal.  This means we need to be earth friendly while fighting nature, sounds crazy, right?

Did You Contribute To The Earth For Earth Day?

Hey Cuties, Spring Break is over and it is back to our regular scheduled routine. We finished our break with an Earth Day bang of sorts. On Saturday is rained all day long, it was chilly out and the day was better suited for Netflix, snacks and a blanket. Due to all of the rain, LittleCuteLips and Babe didn't get to work on their gardening project as planned.  Did you contribute to the Earth, for Earth day?

This Boy Grew His Hair, Cut His Hair & Donated His Hair

Hey Cuties, I'm back home from Key West & Miami; I still have unpacking to do and pictures to sort and so we will dish on that later in the week. Instead, I have a story to share with you; one day I'm on social media like always and I come across a dope story about a little boy.  When you see stories, they are just that stories. You don't know the person, and you don't have a connection to the story; you just read maybe share and you keep it pushing. Well, this time, was different. I knew this kid, I knew his parents and have known them for some time.

St. Jude Target House #StJudeBlogTour

Hey Cuties, It is another week upon us and fall officially begins on Thursday. *tosses fall foliage* fall is my favorite season, I love fall fashion, and I turn a year older. It also kicks of the holiday season in my world; yay for nice things. We are still in September and that means it is still Childhood Cancer Awareness Month & Sickle Cell Awareness Month. As your St. Jude Cutie, I'm continuing to spread the word. Today I'm sharing the details of the St. Jude Target House. Do you know that is even a thing? Don't worry; I didn't either until I went for a visit.

DIY Spanish Flashcards

Hey Cuties, We are in our third week of school and slowly adjusting. My son is in seventh grade and a legit middle school-er.  Do you remember your first day? Do you remember the chaos, the feeling the panic and the fact that your parents no longer escort you in?

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Tour #StJudeBlogTour

Hey Cuties, I'm so excited to share this post with you; two weeks ago I spent an incredible three days with St. Jude. I told you about Day 1: Our tour of the National Civil Rights Museum. Then I shared my beloved Memphis #FatSnacks. Today I'm sharing Day 2: Our day at the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Just in time for September, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

DIY Kids Calendar #LittleCuteLips

Hey Cuties, We are coming off a viciously hot weekend in the DMV area; temps in the high 90's feeling like 115. The kids and I kept cool at the pool on Saturday and on Sunday My Girl aka LittleCuteLips worked on a fun project for her.  She knows her days of the week but she doesn't have a concept of time. If I tell her something is happening in two weeks she asks me how long that is every single day.   If I tell her two weeks is fourteen days, that doesn't make things any clearer.  Although she knows her days of the week she has to sing the song to remember the correct order sometimes.

Natural Hairstyles for Kids. Vol. II

Hey Cuties, Today we're talking hair; in particular we're talking hairstyles. Last year I wrote a post titled Natural Hairstyles for Kids, to date it is my most popular blog post ever.  We are less than a month out from the first day of school so I thought it was a good time to roll out a part II of that post. This time I've included a bonus wash day hack that will ease the hair washing process.

Six Flags America Splashwater Falls, Hurricane Harbor

Hey Cuties, This weekend was a hot one, I'm talking hot for no reason hot. The dope folks at Six Flags invited us out for a day of fun at their Splashwater Falls inside Hurricane Harbor and a Crab Feast. Yes, they gave us complimentary entrance into the park and then fed us. It doesn't get any better than this. I shared my roller coaster experience and y'all laughed at me. From here on out it is all water park all the time.
