Sleep Battle

Ever had trouble getting to sleep?... After a hard day of work, and stress, sometimes sleep just doesn't come as easy as we would like it. Read this little poem to see if you too, can agree with it.



Another night passes, As I ponder in bead, laying awake.
The process of slumber and sleep,Just won't take!
Outside, I can hear the soft chirps of the sleeping birds,

And the sounds of the music that the insects play.
I turn towards the window, to see a glimpse of the moonlight peek in.
But my battle to sleep just doesn't win.
I lay awake,Wondering what the day should bring.

I begin to make a list of chores and food,
But in this state,I can't really remember a thing.
Tired and still, I lay,
Please Lord; just let me sleep, I pray...


How to teach your children to do chores while having fun

We all know that cleaning and doing chores isn't any fun. Children especially find cleaning the house quite daunting. Most children want a reward or want to know what they will get if they perform some household tasks.

As impossible as it seems-it can be fun to clean, and you can make it fun for your children too. Below is an article that can help you with some steps to make cleaning more fun for you and your children...

1. Ask your children what a few of their favorite songs are. Gather about 2 to 3 songs from each of your children. If you only have 1 or 2 children, add in a few of your own as well or let them pick more. Burn a CD or borrow their CD's with their favorite tunes. Play their favorite music and let them dance a little as they clean your home.

2. Make cleaning a fun contest. Set a timer, and see who can get their jobs done the fastest--while still being clean at the same time. Offer a reward for the winner and perhaps even the runner up. Cook their favorite meal, give them their favorite snack, or purchase a small reward of their choice
