Keeping her little for as long as I can

Why do kids have to grow up so fast?
Kendall is our last child, the one who completes our family circle.  I wish there was a way to keep our child small even if it is for just a little while.  I hate that she's growing up so fast, I miss her being little.  She will be starting TK this year and it still seems so crazy to me, like how is my baby ready to start school already?  I don't like it, I didn't like it when each of them started, it was like a part of me was leaving.  What am I going to do all day, the house is going to be quiet, I'm not going to have a toddler asking me 100 questions in an hour, or to come look at her castle she built with the blocks or her shopping mall she set up with all the Barbie clothes.
Kendall has had a lovey since she was a baby and still has it almost 4.5 years later, its falling apart and its not soft anymore but she loves it and in a way when she holds it, it reminds me of her being a baby again.  When Charlie Joe Shop sent us there unique one of kind rabbit lovey's, it was love at first sight for Kendall.  Its so incredibly soft and I love that each of fabric on the rabbits is different.  Since getting this lovey it hasn't left Kendall's side, it comes every where with us.  I love watching her snuggle with it, it puts a smile on this mamas face.  I can remember when she was little and she did that with her other lovey. 
I know kids don't stay little forever but any little thing that can make them seem little again, I'll take.

Basic Invite: Graduation Day!

The school year is almost over and graduation day for many is fast approaching. As a mom of 3 young girls I have 10 years before I have to start thinking about any of my girls graduating and heading off to college.   But for many parents there child will be graduating this year, which means a big party to celebrate there accomplishment is near.  I know for me when I'm going to have a party I like to send out personal invites, so if my child was to be graduating this year I would turn to basic invite to find that perfect graduation invitation.

I personally love invitations where you can add photos, I love to be able to showcase my kids cuteness or beauty if there older.  When choosing a company to work with there are some things I look for and basic invite - personalize grauation invites covers all of them and then some.  Here are some of the my favorite features that they have to offer.
