Mother's Day ~ #MothersDay #tweens #tweengirls , #blogs, #love, #mother


Today is Mother's Day and I hope you have given your Mom a special hug! Moms care for us and show us how to solve problems. They make sure that you are fed, find things that are lost, and go shopping for new purses and shoes. Moms may take you to practice,birthday parties, to the mall, or to the pool. She is your first teacher and she laughs at you when you act silly. There are times that you and Mom may disagree and you may walk away feeling very upset. You may yell and cry because things do not go your way. Forgive. Give her your best smile.Remember that Mom is doing what she thinks is best for you. Those who have no Mom may feel sad for their loss. They will keep the memories alive by looking at photographs and remembering what she enjoyed doing. Moms, grandmothers, step-moms, and those who are called "Mom" are gifts that should be appreciated. Today, look at her and Say "Thank you Mom!".

Kelsey needs a cell phone ~ #selfie, #cellphones, #girls #tweens, #friends, #tweengirls, #blogs #gratitude

Hi girls! Happy Sunday! Kelsey is 12 years old and was sitting at home on a Saturday evening as bored as ever. Her parents had recently told her that she would have to wait until she turned 13 to get a cell phone of her own. Kelsey freaked out and complained to them about this rule. After all, Kelsey's friends (Tiara and Shannon) had their own cell phones! In the meantime, she had to share a phone with her sister Lacey who was 16. Kelsey did not like sharing the cell phone because Lacey was always away from their home with friends. When Lacey was home, she only let Kelsey talk to Tiara and her other friends for 5 minutes. "You have five minutes! No longer!!" she would tell Kelsey. Kelsey told her parents, but it did not do any good. Her mom told her to be patient. Kelsey told her mom that she was the only 12 year old girl in the world that did not have her own phone.Her mom just gave her a funny look. Kelsey felt frustrated and discouraged. That night, she fell onto her bed so hard that her pillow fell onto the floor. She didn't bother to pick it up. The next morning, Kelsey awakened with a sore neck. Kelsey woke up thinking about another long year of waiting for her phone. Kelsey got up, went to the kitchen and grabbed a piece of French toast from the skillet on the stove. She took a bite, turned around and saw Lacey with her arm reaching out to her with the cellphone in her hand. "It's Tiara. Hurry up.", Lacey said. Kelsey grabbed the phone. Tiara asked Kelsey to come over to her house for a birthday party. The party was for Tiara's little brother who was turning 4 years old. The party was at a nearby park and they were going to go swimming. After asking her mom, Kelsey said yes and Tiara's mom picked her up. Kelsey met Tiara's friend whose name was Summer. What a cool name, Kelsey thought. Summer was new in the neighborhood. The girls listened to music, swam in the pool, and played with the little kids. The girls ate grilled chicken burgers with sweet potato fries and Kelsey laughed as she and Tiara took the onions off of their burgers at the same time. The girls talked about their favorite color(s) of swimsuits. The girls were putting sunscreen on when Tiara asked Summer where her mom bought her swimsuit. Summer said that she was staying with her grandparents. She told Kelsey and Tiara that her mother was in a treatment center. Her mother slept a lot,drank too much alcohol and took too many prescription pills. Summer said that her father left the family and went to stay with a woman. Kelsey was surprised to hear Summer say those things. Kelsey learned that Summer did not have a cell phone either. She could tell that Summer missed her parents very much. The girls got up and played with the large beach ball in the swimming pool. They raced each other from one side of the pool to the other. Tiara won the race. Kelsey watched Summer as she clapped for Tiara. Summer was so nice, she thought. While eating birthday cake along the side of the pool, Kelsey asked, "Summer, why did you clap for Tiara? You lost the race!" "Losing my parents hurt, but my grand ma said that being sad is a waste of time. She told me to be kind to others and I will have a happy heart instead of a sad one." Kelsey smiled. The party ended and Tiara's mom drove Kelsey home.She felt so lucky to have her mom and dad. Kelsey opened the front door and walked in to her house. "Mom!" she called.Her mom came out of the laundry room. Kelsey ran over to her and told her that she could wait for her own cell phone. Her mom looked at her with surprise. " Uh, ok Kelsey.Good!" Kelsey later told her mom about Summer.They hugged. Kelsey learned that everyone has problems... some are big and some are little. Suddenly, having to wait to get a cell phone was her little problem. Kelsey decided to fill her days with thankfulness. (Hope you liked this girl story! Hugs, Marie)

Friends ~ #friends, #tweens, #girls, #tweengirls, #tweenblogs, #happy

Hello tweens! How is your weekend going? Did you spend time with friends or meet new people? Spending time with real friends make us laugh! We can act silly with them and try on lip gloss together. Friends come over to our house. They eat with us, watch movies, talk on our cell phones, and sometimes spend the night. Friends are our shoulder to lean on when everything out there has gone crazy! They hear our secrets and never tell! True friends know our thoughts before we speak them. Our friends are special and treat everyone with kindness. Friends defend each other when the mean girls appear. They see the best and worst of us! Keep them close when life gets rough! Take a breath and tell your friends: "I appreciate you because you have turned my frown into a smile!" (or whatever you want to say :) Keep on shining! Marie ~

Flower love ~ #flowers #Spring, #girls #tweens #tweengirls #April

350cb7b1ed42eac138dc4870068b6181a3ad8dc7b2489e54ab How is everything going girls? I hope the Winter was not too bad and the weather where you live is getting warmer. It was a nice Spring day here in Houston... with a few clouds. Don't you love the days that are filled with sunshine? You can go outside, spend time with pets, friends and family. As Spring moves along, we will begin to see lots of flowers growing and beautifying spaces all around! Not only do they look good, they often have a good smell. Those who have allergies may be allergic to the pollen. It so, they can make their own special flowers from colored tissue paper. If you like, pick some flowers and give them to someone that you love! Have a fun Sunday! You are a rock star! Marie

watermelon ~ #watermelon #fruit #melon #snacks #food #tweens #nutrition #blogsforgirls, #blogs

Sweet Sunday girls! What is your favorite snack or dessert? Do you like sweet or salty snacks? If you enjoy the sweet taste, you may want to add more watermelon to your menu. Watermelon has lots of vitamin C,natural sugars, and is good for the heart. Ice box watermelons usually are about 5 to 15 pounds. However, in the Guinness World Book of records, Bill Rogerson of North Carolina grew a 279 pound watermelon! Now, that is huge! How many people would it take to eat that one? There are different kinds of watermelon, just as there are different types of trees. The flesh of the watermelon can be red, orange, and sometimes yellow. Some have seeds and some do not. Most of us take the seeds out before we eat the watermelon. I know some people who dry the seeds and then use them for art work. There are many ways to use the fruit, such as popsicles, watermelon lemonade, watermelon cookies, and watermelon cake. Google "watermelon uses" to find more uses. So, while you are enjoying apples, bananas, oranges, grapes, or strawberries ... Don't forget about the delectable watermelon!! Hug your beautiful and kind self today!! :) Marie
