“Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.” – William Wordsworth
 
Journaling might sound like a complicated task for children. But writing down thoughts on paper can be as simple as a few scribbles or as fancy as the directions for an original Lego creation. For young children, journaling can begin with pictures and alphabet letters and sometimes little marks in a notebook. Simple writing allows children to apply reading skills and their knowledge of alphabet letters and sounds in a practical way.

I've been a busy mom of four boys for almost 12 years now. My oldest will be 12 in September and to be honest, prior to just recently, I hadn't really shopped consignment sales before because I didn't have a need to. Over the years, I just collected, stored, and reused all of my boys' clothing items. 
And now, everything's changed. We're expecting our first baby GIRL this April! Of course, after all the excitement, panic soon set in.

We have blogged about this before so this is just a great reminder.  
Pre-Sale: The time when those with passes can shop a Rhea Lana event before it is open to the public. Special passes are given to volunteers and consignors as a thanks for participating. Moms-to-Be can print a free pass from a RL event website and come as our guests. Guests are welcome with a guest pass they pick up at their local doctors office, preschool or dance studio.

It’s consignment season! It’s started getting really cold and there’s nothing better than helping us make it through the winter months than thinking of the summer ones!
One thing that the best consignment moms know is that YOU CAN’T DO IT ALL AT ONCE. Well, you can, but it will drive you crazy. We have lots of different things going on in our lives, so we typically can’t set aside 4-6 hours to get our items ready. So, follow this little plan and WORK SMARTER, instead of harder.
