- Welcome to my blog. I'm a Mississippi country girl transplanted to Grapevine, TX. I have been blessed with a great husband, and my kiddos, Aleck and Ella. When I'm not eating bon bons on the couch, I am my kid's room mom, PTA member, Sunday School teacher, taxi driver, amateur photographer and personal chef. When I'm not doing those things, I'm running a small jewelry business, 2nd Amendment Jewelry (www.2ndamendmentjewelry.com), that I started with my twin sister, Glenda. It's a crazy and busy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life!

Tales from the Toddler Bed
Since we converted Aleck's crib to a toddler bed, he has never slept better. He consistently sleeps through the night and even takes naps without any problems. When he is really tired, he will crawl in the bed and say, "night, night". When Aleck was sleeping in the crib, he would wake up in the morning crying, wanting to get out of bed. Now, he will sing and talk to himself for 15-30 minutes before he opens his door and starts calling for "momma". His room is baby proofed and we put a baby gate up at night to keep him in his room until we go get him in the morning. I certainly didn't expect Aleck to do so well in a toddler bed, but he seems to enjoy having a little control over when he gets in or out of bed.
