Life Rushing By

Updated on June 13, 2016

These locks so easy to install! I Love that I don't have to drill into my cabinets yet can have the security I need that my baby will not get into things.

Baby stage. Just remembering their facial expressions at tis age gave me much happiness.


Babies are fun, scary, exciting, and a handful. Most parents would agree with that. What I love is their facial expressions before they can even walk or barely hold their heads up. Just in the face we can see what they are feeling, sadness, scared, happy, love, excited. And of course the less nice things like diaper changes, it comes with the territory. When my boy started walking it was funny. He could stand, but not quite walk yet, his legs would shake just trying to hold himself up.

Before I knew it he was running. I thought what happened he was just crawling. They change so fast. He is 2 now and he is starting to speak, which is difficult because I am not really sure what he is saying. Seems like he is just repeating himself, but who knows maybe it's like his own language.

Now he is in the stage where he is learning everything and getting into everything. Sometimes I wonder if you can truly baby proof your house, they seem to outsmart everything. He'll be 3 in a few months and all I can remember is the day we took him home in this snow suit we thought would fit him at the time, which ended up being 5 times to big but it was cute.

To all the parents to be. Your life's are about to change so much for the better. It will be difficult at first, but you'll get the hang of it. Just try to remember that they will only be that little once and trust me you don'' want to miss anything.

Toddler's, how much fun they can be, or trying. This age is fun just to watch them learn new things everyday.

What to expect around 3 to 5 year old toddlers.

What can I say 3 to 5 is difficult. Toddlers can be difficult they are getting to the point to make their own minds up, but must be watched closely. My daughters mother was not watching my kid one day while I was working and my kid ended up swallowing a car lug nut. How she di it without choking was a miracle. She ended up ok but it was a scare. So watch them closely.

There are many things I could word bash her mother with for not watching my daughter, but I'm not going to do that, I have full custody now and unsafe things like the car bolt don't happen now.

So for this age watch them closely they like to be sneaky and try to get away with everything. Also this is the beginning of the lying stage so look for the signs. they are kind of like a tell for poker you will just know if they are bluffing you of not.

Kids 5 to 11 years old

What a handful this stage can be 5 to 8 isn't that, bad but after that real attitude kicks in. My daughter is 11 now and man is she a handful. Everything is unfair, and not to mention how electronics have taken over her life.

I'm new to this age so the only advice I can give you here is tread carefully because that attitude is vicious at that age. So good luck!

Teenage years, Wow how much 20 years makes a difference. Teens today are so much different than when I was a teen.


I don't even know where to start. They seem to thing they are entitled to everything today and can't get off their electronics. So if you have any advice for me I welcome it, because I am getting close to that's stage and would like your input. It almost feels like I'm the old person now and my kid is like "duh I knew how to do that". I remember treating my parents like that when I was a teen because they didn't understand the tech. even back then.

Beautiful 7" IPS display (171 ppi / 1024 x 600) and fast 1.3 GHz quad-core processor. Rear and front-facing cameras. Available in four colors.

The things teen are dong now is just crazy. Why? To impress their friends. So disturbing!


How to get you Tween off their electronics?

I'm worried about the teen years. Any parents have any advice for me. I feel like I'm going into uncharted territory.
