Free Printable Kids To-Do Checklists

Hi everyone!  I have to share a major struggle I have as a Mom: getting my kids to do what they're told, especially before school and after school!!!  I'm going to guess that I'm not the only one???  So I started to think about what teachers do at school to keep the kids moving smoothly from task to task and accomplish all that needs to be done during the day.  I think it's simply a ROUTINE.  That's where I fail at home.  I thought that my kids would know by now what they need to do each and every day before and after school. I thought my kids would be familiar with their morning routine. I thought they would know that they need to eat breakfast, brush their teeth, check the lunch menu, etc.  But it was always a struggle!!! ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ
UNTIL.......


This has been a game-changer for us.  It does take a minute or two out of my mornings and afternoons to go and print this (usually tasks change day-to-day), but my kids wake up and immediately go to their list.  When they get off the bus, they come home and immediately go to their list.  Now I don't have to keep yelling saying "Make your bed!", "Brush your teeth!".....I just have to say "LIST!!!!" Hopefully we'll reach a point this year where we don't need the lists each day, but for now, I'm not going to stop the train!!  It's working, so we'll keep it going!!!

Free Printable Behavior Chart

Hi everyone!  My kids' teachers have always been really big on using behavior charts (some use Class Dojo, the electronic version), so I've tried at various times to implement the same idea at home.   My son is much more motivated by the chart than my daughter is, so I have found it very useful for him.  Here is a freebie version for you to try as well!!  I also have an emoji editable one in my shop.  Hang on the fridge and use magnets with the child's name to move the child "up" or "down" based on his/her behavior.   Clothes pins work well too (as shown in example below)!  We always start each day on Green - Good Day.




On a personal note, my kids started back to school yesterday!!!!  Can't believe it!  Mya is in 5th, Mason is in 1st.  Little brother isn't so little anymore!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

Too Young for Cell Phone but Needs a Way to Call! Gizmo Gadget Watch

Hi everyone!  First of all, this is not a sponsored post.  I'm just very, very pleased about a product that I have to share it with you!!!!  Secondly, if you have a child who is not ready for a cell phone but needs a way to call or be reached, then this is for you...keep reading!!!!

Have you heard of the Gizmo Gadget watch?  Another Mom told me about this fabulous watch a couple years ago, and I have yet to see a single advertisement for it.  At least 5 people I know have purchased one for their kid since I told them about it.  I don't know why it's not being advertised!

(image from Verizon Wireless)

What is the Gizmo Gadget?
The Gizmo Gadget is a watch that allows the child to call (via speaker) up to 10 people that you program into the contacts.  It can also receive calls from those 10 people.  Other features include sending pre-programmed text messages, sending voice messages, receiving text messages (up to 30 characters per message) via the GizmoHub app, GPS tracking, location check-in, and step tracker.

What age group would the Gizmo Gadget be appropriate?
We got my daughter her Gizmo for her 9th birthday (she is now 10).  In my opinion, any child who can read well and who can be trusted to receive and make phone calls would be fine with this watch.  We're considering one for our 6 year-old because he's always running around the neighborhood into various friends' homes and it's difficult to keep track of him!!  If you don't have a landline, this would be a perfect option.

I think the watch may not be good for age 11/12 and up, only because it does not have the text capacity that an almost-teenager would probably need! There are no apps or internet browsers either.

How does the Gizmo Gadget GPS feature work?
There is a GizmoHub app that the parent must have on his/her phone to track the child's watch.  There can be a 1-5 minute search time for the app to locate your child.


My favorite features on the GizmoHub app and Gizmo watch:
--GPS Locator (as mentioned above)
--Messaging - While the child can only use pre-programmed, short messages to text the parent, they can voice text much longer messages.
--Battery Life Alerts - The app will alert the parent when the gizmo battery is low.  You can also check the battery life at any time through the app.
--Auto-answer calls feature - You can choose to have the watch answer after 10 seconds even if the child does not push the answer button on the watch.  This feature is helpful if the child has silenced the watch because then you can start yelling speaking and he/she will hopefully hear you!
--The cost - We paid about $150 for the watch and pay only $5.00 per month for the service (2-year contract).  That price may vary depending on your plan.
--Quick contact with my child!!!  No walkie-talkies or texting/calling the neighbor moms or dads to ask them to send my child home!!!  I can call my daughter directly!!!!!

Cons:
--If your provider is not Verizon.  As I'm typing this, I believe the Gizmo is available exclusively through Verizon.  However, other providers may have their own version.
--It's not waterproof.  Hopefully there will be an update to the watch very soon where it is waterproof.

I really have no other complaints!  My daughter wears her Gizmo all the time, even to school.  She calls me from the bus on the way to school if she forgets something (of which I may or may not come running to the school to bring it to her!!!).  I track her when she rides her bike two streets over to her friend's house.  I text her that it's time for dinner and she needs to come home or that I'm on my way to pick her up.  It's sooooo worth it and I highly recommend it!!!!

I'd love to hear your thoughts too!  Please leave me a comment below if your child has a Gizmo or if you have any questions about it!!
:)Jamie

Free Printable Daily Planner Page


Hi everyone!  Here is a new planner page that I created and wanted to share.  I've been a little overwhelmed lately with tasks and projects and Etsy orders and kids....etc!!!!  I decided that a full-week planner is not working for me and that I just need to take each day at a time.  I have switched over to daily to-do lists and what I don't finish one day, I just carry over to the next.  I'm finding that I'm much more productive and crossing off a lot more than when I was trying to put everything in a weekly planner.  I hope you will find this helpful as well!!!

Adult Braces: I got braces....again!

Hi everyone!  I wanted to share something today that is not my normal printable/craft/project post.  I got braces!  I had braces as a teenager for 3.5 years, along with the expander, headgear, etc....pretty much everything!!!  I also had a retainer for several months after I got my braces off, but it was removable, not permanent.  And at my last appointment, my ortho literally said to me that I could THROW AWAY my retainer.  There was a trash can right by the door, so I clearly remember throwing it away ๐Ÿ˜ฑ!!! I cringe just thinking about that!!


So fast forward to 20+ years later (I'm 39 now)....my teeth have shifted significantly.  You can see how wide my smile was back in 1996 (yikes, a little makeup wouldn't have killed me ๐Ÿ˜‚!!)  vs. a recent picture of me.  Luckily the teeth have not gotten crooked, but my smile has narrowed.  I was even having pain in certain spots of my gums, which my dentist insists was due to movement of my teeth.

THE PLAN
During my consult with the ortho, we decided that my only option would be braces.  Invisible aligners would not do (right now) what needs to be done.  However, after 12 months of wearing braces, we may move to the invisible aligners to finish out my treatment.

4.25.17 I got the braces put on!  They are Damon Braces, which are not the kind of braces I had as a teenager or the kind that my 9 year old daughter just got off.  Treatment is faster, the braces are smaller, they are thermal activated (I can feel them tighten when I drink my coffee!), and they don't require as many office visits.

5.2.17 One week in!  It's definitely been an adjustment getting used to the braces!  My teeth still hurt a little, I have headaches, and my cheeks are getting cut and poked quite a bit, but it's not too bad!  I'm still trying to get over the embarrassment that I'm 39 years old and in a full set of braces!  But it's only temporary and will be worth it in the end!

As much as I HATE posting pictures of myself, it's the only way to show you my progress!




10.11.17 Week 24!  Wow, I'm really starting to notice a huge difference in my teeth!!!  I'm on my 4th wire, and I have a rubber band I have to wear on my right side overnight.  My right side bite does not close all the way, so this will bring my bite back together.  The best news I had at my appointment yesterday was that I'm totally on schedule for removal in April!!!  My doc said he didn't want to jinx it and tell me I'm ahead of schedule, but everything is looking great!!  Wooohoooo!  I'm almost halfway through, and everyone was right that it goes by fast!

You can really notice the change in the gaps I used to have in the corners of my mouth.  My teeth are now coming forward and I have less black space.  I'll post another update in a bout a month or so!!!



********
I won't post too often about my whole braces ordeal, but I may post updates once in a while when I start to see some real progress.  Plus, it will be a fun way for me to journal my whole experience!
