Scarves by TiffanyW

So winter is pounding on the door (luckily utah isnt answering) and I know I have already started looking for a nice scarf to wear during those bitter cold months. Lucky me to have seen a friend post that his wife makes scarfs. I love finding unique fun things that arent always from target, although we love them. I want something that not everyone is wearing.
Tiffany has cute simple affordable hand made scarves I love the simplicity,  they will go with anything and everything and not break the bank. Im personally in love with the cream for when 3 pairs of dirty fingers arent around and the black and white for when the kids are around. For my bold funky mood I'm thinking green. Getting a scarf through her is on my before winter to do list. It should definitely be on yours too :) 

So go look at what she has and treat yourself to something nice. Moms deserve a treat too ♡♡♡

Two kids are wrestling over the toy clown their aunt made, voices rising as each demands the right to sleep with it.

Stephanie Mihalas, a licensed child and family psychologist in Los Angeles, believes some parents would swat the toddlers on the backside and send them to bed. She prefers putting the toy in time out until things settle down.

"Remove the toy for 15 minutes. Make a simple statement as you do it," said Mihalas, a clinical instructor at UCLA. "'You were fighting over the toy. I removed the toy. The toy will come back when you calm down.’ ”
