It was Tuesday night after I had just got done grocery shopping, when I pulled into the local gas station parking lot and proceeded to go through my purse so I could find my card to go into and purchase whatever it was I needed to purchase. That’s when my 8 year old decided to ask me for ice cream and I responded with “right now we only have enough money for the necessities”.
I’m not sure why I expected him to respond understandingly but he responded the way that I’m sure we all have “I can’t wait to be a grown up so I can do what I want”. He wasn’t angry when he said this. He just really felt that when he grows up he can do whatever he wants and that is so far from the truth. Especially given the week I have had.
I stopped what I was doing and immediately just stared at hime and went on to explain that being a child, is the best years of your life. Don’t rush them. Something I had heard my entire life as a child and I just shrugged it off. I told him that he would do that, he would shrug it off and think that I’m crazy because being an adult seems so easy and it’s not. We pay bills and even go to work to make money to pay for those necessities and we don’t always get ice cream when we want because of responsibilities. He said he guesses he still wants to be a kid then.
It’s important that our children remember that they are children and have the exploration of children. Sometimes we get caught up in our own responsibilities and we forget to let them know that they are so young and have as much freedom as they ever will in this life. Sure, there’s rules they have to follow, but at least they don’t have to worry about that electric bill or paying rent. They don’t have the worry of buying themselves clothes or getting enough gas in their car so that their kids can go to school all week. They don’t have to borrow money.
I have been against MLM’s from the beginning of time. I really dislike people popping up in my inbox and asking me to buy anything. Most importantly, it was because their products are not something I can see myself getting behind. Then you have the way they treat people, you are just extra money to them. It’s not fun when they hound you to join their team and you’re over here trying to make enough money to pay your bills, you really don’t have extra money to invest in their company because again, you can’t see yourself advertising for something that is beyond your belief system. There’s several of those companies and MixedSixMama’s Poofy World did not join them. I wouldn’t ever advertise or try to get you to buy a product that I wouldn’t use myself or I haven’t used myself. I also wouldn’t ask you to join my team if I didn’t believe that we could make something happen and change the world with the products. Poofy Organics products are just that, they are life changing. We can’t change everyone, we can’t change the entire world, but we can have one hell of a time trying to promote everything we believe in.
The Shampoo Bar
This shampoo bar is absolutely amazing, I have listed the ingredients underneath the photo. The bar of shampoo is made from toxic free chemicals and the company behind it is one of the most trustworthy companies when it comes to selling all natural products. Now, you may be curious as to how does this shampoo bar actually work and how well it stands up against regular shampoo and I will tell you my thoughts! I just used this shampoo bar the other day for the first time and it was so simple to use. I took it right out of the box and just lathered my hair with it, like you would do your body with regular bar soap, unlike that regular bar soap this was shampoo! It rinsed out easy and didn’t leave my hair feeling stiff or gunky, it left it smelling minty fresh and amazingly clean. I was able to use my leave in conditioner and my hair looks and feels amazing. I will attach a photo here shortly.
Other shampoos put the poo in shampoo! No, really! They have so many harmful chemicals, it doesn’t even matter if you go into the store and buy the cheapest one or the most expensive because as long as they carry those carcinogens in them, you’re getting the same dirty product. You have to remember our heads are full of pores and they soak up every ounce of those chemicals. Next time you’re in the shower, read the list of ingredients and then look them up. Every thing is right at our finger tips.
We also have many different products and brands. They are all toxic free, clean, and natural ingredients used in EVERY product. Also, you can ask me how to join my team and spread the love of these ingredients and products. Just find me on Facebook! I will be waiting.
Welcome back to my blog to everyone that reads it! I have been working on a special thing for all of my fans! I have now joined Poofy Organics and am now a business owner! I would love it if you could all support me on this newest endeavor of mine. My goal is to help get the word out about this wonderful products! They are organic, all natural, 100% gluten free, cruelty free, and they are just amazing. I have been a customer for well over a year and I have finally decided to join. Don’t worry this is not one of those MLM posts where I try to get you to join too. You will join if interested and on your own time. I just want you all to know how special these products are. They are hand made and organic certified. The woman who created it, created it because of her mother who had breast cancer.
Have you ever checked the back of your products? If you have, you are ahead of most people. It took me until 2 years ago to actually start reading food labels. It was when I was doing Whole 30 and oh my goodness, was that a hard thing to do! Reading every label it brought it to my attention just how awful some of these ingredients we ingest are! That’s when I decided to start looking into what we put on our body. Our bodies absorb most of the stuff we come into contact with! You wouldn’t believe how much toxins we are soaking up in our skin. Aluminum, Polysorbate 80 (or of any kind), and some of the “natural” labels are not even real.
I would love it if you all could not only keep following my blogs and supporting me here, in my writing, but could you also follow me on Facebook. At the top of this blog above the banner is a link to both my Facebook and Instagram!
Please comment here and ask any questions you may have or if you’ve used Poofy what is your favorite thing about them?
I will soon be on Facebook and provide live videos, I also have a group that I can invite you to so you can learn more about our products!
The world is always spinning and sometimes it feels as though it is spinning upside down. It’s hard to hold on, even though there’s gravity that ties me to this Earth, I do not feel as though I am a part of it. The Earth spins so out of control that I start to feel it’s heaviness and speed in my chest, I start to suffocate, full of anxiety. I spin around and around and around, I cannot let go. I step back and attempt to catch my breath only to taste the familiar scent of exhaustion. Then I awake. I awake surrounded by the ones who judge us, I awake to the ones who tell me I am not good enough today, I am not good enough any day. I slowly cusp my ears to stop their angry words from entering my soul but they find themselves slipping through the cracks of my fingers and then again, I hear the world judging me for things that I have no control.
I step up and move forward, pushing through the judgmental people, I then realize these people are the same ones who claim they wouldn’t hurt me, claim that they love me and want what’s best for me. They love me? They want what’s best for me? Yet, they hurt me with their knives in my back. It is those that are the reason I do not trust anyone. That I do not give someone the chance to hold the knife and that I do not turn my back and always look people straight in the eyes, never lose eye contact.
The fear of every one else looking upon me, judging me comes to surpass in time. I learn to be my own person, I learn to be a better person, and I learn to adapt to the world around me and instead of attempting to be a part of a world that I do not understand, I move forward and I create my own world, one that I am so familiar with, one that I am comfortable in.
I have been away for longer than I expected to be due to some unforeseen circumstances in my life and concerning my family. I am back, maybe that was the wrong term, I am here and I am different. Have you ever had an experience that changed your entire life forever? So it makes you not the same person? I’ve had many, as I am sure others have had as well.
Trying to find a voice in this world can be quite difficult at times and it’s no fun when you feel that you’re screaming at the top of your lungs but no one can hear, no one cares, and no one understands. I’ve been there time and time again. Though I try to be the best friend I can be, I am not always. I am not always the most supportive person because I am dealing with something myself. Not everyone can always be here for you and that is what I am still learning even though I am an adult. Sometimes you have to be strong for yourself, your children, and your family even through the pain and through the tears.
Welcome to my new blog name and what my blog will be about from this point on. Life events, supporting each other, parenting, and those things that we just don’t always want to talk about.
Imagine this, you did all of your Algebra homework and you were so proud of yourself. Then bam, your instructor posts at the last minute that you did great work except for the fact that you did the wrong problem.
So, you are like “okay, I got this” and you redo the equation. But then you later realize that you have to do it all over again because you use the quadratic formula instead of factoring like the homework says to do!
That’s me right now. That’s the situation I am in, currently and I am dreading to have to do another math problem for the third time. I am currently shaking my head a thousand times at myself. Wish me luck!
Hello, all of my fellow bloggers and followers! You will notice that I have decided to change the name of my blog to Mixed Six Mama. This is referring to my children and I find that it fits better. I am going to be going through my blog posts and organizing them. My blog will be mostly my feelings. Some will be based on my parenting life, my wife life, my mom life, and other parts of my life on a deeper level.
I’d love to connect with each and every one of you. You can follow me on FB @mixedsixmama which I’m working on updating the banner and the name. FB declined my name change saying it doesn’t go with what the page represents. I had to explain and appeal that it is actually my blogs name! Wish me luck!
