Rude Girl

My 5 year old has turned into a real live Mean Girl. She has spent a good part of summer vacation getting scolded about saying rude things to people.

She has been saying things like this:
You stink.
Leave me alone with your fat behind!

You're ugly.
Your hair looks a mess.
Your breathe stinks.
You look all dirty.
Get away from me.
Ewe don't sit by me, you're nasty!

AND MORE!


She says these things to other children.
So I started saying things like this:
Hey! Watch your mouth. You don't talk to people like that!
That's rude, you need to apologize, right now.
You shouldn't say things like that to people, because it hurts their feelings. You don't want to make people feel bad do you?


Saying those things didn't seem to help. Instead, it resulted in scenarios like this:

My Daughter: Eeeelll!!! Your breathe stinks.
Other person: *looks at her*
My Daughter: Did it hurt your feelings when I said your breathe stinks?
Other Person: Kind of.
My Daughter: Well, then I apologize for hurting your feelings. *happily runs off to play*


Problem not solved. I'll need to come up with some new strategies for this one. My Grandma would've given her a tap on the mouth each time she said something rude.

Do you know what it's like to lay in someone's arms and feel completely empty? To have their body wrapped around yours, naked, skin touching, breathe on your neck, arms holding you so tight it feels as if they were meant to never let you go. I lose myself in the forehead kisses and the brushing of my hair behind my ears. In the soft whispers and the morning smiles. I lose myself most of the time. But sometimes, I just lay there wrapped in his naked body wondering if he holds everyone like this. Wondering why I keep coming back. Knowing, that I'll come back again.  *Photo by cottonbro from Pexels

Nine Easy to use Apps for Small Cash Advances

Photo by Yan Krukov   Cash Advance apps offer people the ability to borrow small amounts of money in the form of cash advances. Some may have additional features, such as credit-building, saving and budgeting tools, and bank accounts. Most require a monthly membership fee and/or service fees that will be deducted from your account at the same time as your advance repayment. You will need to have a bank account with direct deposit from your employer in order to use these apps. Here is a list of nine, no hassle, Cash Advance apps you can use to get from pay check to pay check. Before I list them, I want to advise against using these apps unless it is an emergency. These should only be used every once in a while. If you are having problems getting from paycheck to paycheck, there is likely a bigger issue at hand. I recommend going over your income and expenses and watching your spending, or getting a second job. Click here for the budgeting app that I use and how it

Top 5 things to remember when filing income tax returns in 2022

Top 5 things to remember to speed tax return processing and avoid delays! 1. For an accurate return, collect all documents before preparing your tax return. In addition to collecting W-2s, Form 1099s and other income-related statements, it is important people have their advance Child Tax Credit and Economic Impact Payment information on hand when filing. 2. File an accurate return and use e-file and direct deposit to avoid delays. Taxpayers should electronically file and choose direct deposit. 3. Use online resources before calling the IRS.
