    Our Causes- Every Little Bit Does Make a Difference

    Here at Mommie911 we want to make a difference in our community and in the world. We believe it is important to find a cause to fight for. We believe each of us can make a difference by helping someone in our community or getting involved in a charitable organization.
    We also want to teach our kids about the importance of giving to people or groups that need it. We want our kids to learn about the value of helping others, whether it is through monetary support, volunteering of our time, or giving donations. We believe it starts with each of us to plant a seed that can grow from our efforts. If we get our kids involved, it will make a difference today and for the rest of their lives.

    I think Hide and Seek is My New Favorite Kids Game- How to Get a Break from Your Kids

    When friends or family come over my kids beg an uncle or aunt or someone else to play hide and seek with them. Usually the visiting guest honors their request and plays, often for over an hour, as people take turns hiding or searching.
    The funny thing is I rarely play hide and seek with them. From what I have observed my kids are quiet, separate (which means no fighting amongst themselves), occupied, and do not need a new activity for sometime.
