Rapes in Lake Highlands: Protect Your Family and You

 Currently, our community is being assaulted by a bold rapist, or 3, uhhh what? click here for news report. Everyone is coming together to support victims and try to be proactive in creating further attacks. We live in a beautiful family oriented community. Therefore, the following is something I feel important to share.

I also want to let everyone know, that in 2003, I was attacked, by a man, a rapist, in a bathroom. I believe, I owe my survival to the instructor of my gun license class, taken just weeks prior to my attack. The instructor taught all the women some basic survival tips, in addition to gun use, as he believed women survived better via other ways vs guns. I used what he taught me, and I believe, to this day, it saved me…..will state what I did in post to follow soon. In the meantime:

Here is an alternative to having a hand gun under or beside your bed. You could even keep a second can in your car. However, just make sure when temps start heating up, you take it out so it doesn’t explode.

The following is food for thought sent via my German mother-in-law via someone else? At first, I thought, what is my German MIL trying to tell this Texan girl about guns, but then I really read the following. Then I thought, that works and works better!! Think about it! Consider it!

I know some of you own GUNS, myself included, but this is something to think about… If you don’t have a gun, or just prefer to think of an alternative to guns, as I do with 3 under 3 in my house, here’s a more humane way to wreck someone’s evil plans for you. Did you know this? I didn’t. I never really thought of it before. I guess I can get rid of the baseball bat.

Tandem Breastfeeding Twins

I had a friend ask if I ever tandem breastfeed. For sure, it isn’t easy to tandem breastfeed especially the bigger they get. There are problems such as how to balance two on a pillow, start burping one while the other is still feeding (especially when you have infants that spit up, A LOT) or … Read more

Once home, we usually spread our treasures out on a table and talk about them, or we create a craft with them. Today, we collected leaves … Read more

Dr. Seuss Birthday Read

We LOVE Dr. Seuss. We are reading several Dr. Seuss books weekly with our toddler and to our twins. In celebration of his birthday, the following are some of our favourite free printables and activities that we incorporate into our family in celebration of Dr. Seuss.


Personally, the more I read of Dr. Seuss the wittier I become with rhyming for everyday fun with my son. For example, off the top of my head, yesterday I started singing, “hurry hurry we must hurry, have an appointment we’ve got to scurry. Scurry scurry, can you scurry? Can you hurry? Show mama how we can scurry hurry.” My toddler was rushing around, quickly putting on his tennis shoes, and helping me carry items to the car while laughing all the way.  


Or when my toddler thinks it is funny to start jumping on the sofa, I might start saying: “hey bofa on the sofa I do not like for you to hop you must not hop on pop, you must not hop on the sofa bofa, I do not like that, I do not like that a lot”….ideas taken from Dr. Seuss books such as wocket in my pocket and hop on pop


The Hop on Pop book is to this day my favourite book to read. I started reading it to my son at the age of 2 months. When we travelled to Germany, at 5 months, he would sit still the longest when reading that book. At 2 years of age, he was reading and quoting from the book as well.


Here are some free printables to go along with the Hop on Pop book. Good for all ages!
