Books for the Boy who won't Read for Fun

We found the perfect book series for our son. We will not sit down long enough to read a book... Until we found Diary of a Wimpy Pikachu. He now asks to read to us at bedtime. It has so much action and he reads with so much excitement.
Yes, he's already reading the second book!

Sparkle Bat Pumpkin

No Carve Bat Pumpkin

My son making the pumpkin for his My Gym students


1- Black pumpkin (Michael's)
3- Glitter sticky back foam sheets
Lime green
4- Sticky back black foam sheets
1- white copy paper

I made my own stencil on an 8x10 copy paper for the wings. 
Tracing it on the back of 2 black foam paper and cutting it out. 
I then made a mirror copy of the wings on the back of the other two black foams
I stuck them both together this way the wings will be hold strong on the pumpkin. 
Cut two pyramids shapes for the ears, leaving a flap to use the sticky part of foam on pumpkin
Cut two smaller pyramids of purple for the inner ear. 
Helps hold up ears. 
Cut two green circles and two smaller purple circles for eyes
Cut your half moon smile out of purple foam and two triangles of white foam for his teeth.
And you're done!! 

He's adorable and found inspiration on Pinterest
Have fun and create your unique bat pumpkin

Work and Family Life It's a Balancing Act

It's hard to find a balance between being mom, wife and caregiver. 
This day was no different. It was Fall Break with two of my four kids home. The youngest sick with a cold. I still needed to go out take me oldest boys to school (different school district) and work. My Avon Leader, friend and mentor came over to watch the little ones while I squeeze in an appointment for my mother in law. Well that's when it all became to hectic and stressful. The labs took longer than expected I was running late getting home and I was definitely not ready to go to my business meeting for Avon that afternoon. I couldn't get my kids to a sitter and I was a total mess!! 
My leader insisted and helped me get in the car and go to the meeting.. but I have the kids with me. She insisted I bring them along. But I didn't put on makeup and I'm a total mess, sweaty from my morning rush.. She insisted I go anyways. But I haven't made lunch for the kids, she insisted I go and we'll grab something there. I had every excuse, every opportunity to not go! But she was there with me and I'm glad I went. 
I was welcomed at the door with smiles. Kids were welcomed. No one noticed I was a mess, I was included and I was given a gift and compliments on how well behaved my kids were (even though we had one small tantrum). No one hushed the kids, they were able to see new products, and samples. 

I'm glad I decided to be part of a company that can offer the flexibility to work around my hectic schedule, and welcome me with encouraging words.

 I am an Avon representative, I work from home and I love it!!
