3 Financial Myths About Having Older Children thefundamentalhome.com

 

One of the best aspects of spending so much time on YouTube is the people I “meet.”  It is so much fun to get to know others who enjoy watching videos.  Many of those folks are bloggers, too.  One such person, is Liz. She has been frequent visitor to my YT channel and even started her own channel about a month ago.  Her YT handle is The Frugal Libertarian, and her blog is, you guessed it, frugallibertarian.com.  One of the things I most appreciate about Liz is that, though we don’t have a lot in common, we can connect over the things we DO have in common.  For instance, we are both mothers and frugal.  Let’s be honest, those two things connect most of the women I know 😉

Anyway, Liz asked me if I would consider doing a collab with her.  She wanted to talk about some financial myths about having kids.  Liz is the mother of young children, and she has had to deal with SO many critical comments about her purchases that were based on financial myths- including a lecture from her pediatrician who felt that only the most expensive formula was acceptable!  She wanted to share her experiences and encourage mothers of young children, but she thought I could add to this as a mother of older children.  Of course, I have also had my share of criticisms based on financial myths, so I agreed to join her.

I know all of you mothers of older children are fighting battles, especially now as it is Christmas time.  There is so much pressure to buy bigger and better.  Don’t buy into it (literally or figuratively)!  You can have happy, healthy kids without over-spending- at Christmas time or any other time!  Here are 3 Financial Myths About Having Older Kids…

Is Your Homeschool Structured or Relaxed? Virtual Homeschool Co-op 2016-2017 Assignment 1, The Fundamental Home

It’s a new school year!

I am so excited to, once again, be participating in the fantastic online community: The Virtual Homeschool Co-op.  This is a YouTube channel (and now a blog) where community members are assigned a question every week.  They answer that question about their homeschool and share that information online.  This can be in the form of a YouTube video or in a blog post.  Every Tuesday, we are linking up!  You should totally consider joining, too!  It’s free!  Plus!  If you don’t want to make videos or blog posts, but you are interested in learning about how other families homeschool, the Virtual Homeschool Co-op has all of this information in one place for your convenience.  We hope it will be a help and an encouragement to you.

This is the first assignment for the 2016-2017 school year: “Is Your Homeschool Structured or Relaxed?”  We were supposed to answer this question in terms of our curriculum, our schedule, and our classroom.

Let me share a little bit with you about how I responded…

Natural Remedies for Pneumonia that Worked When I Couldn't Take Antibiotics- Essential Oils, Mullein Leaf Tea, Etc...

 

I have been away from the blog for a LONG time because I have been recovering from a-typical pneumonia.  It’s a long story, so I won’t go into all the details.  The short version is that I got bronchitis, which turned into a-typical pneumonia.  For the sickness, I was given an antibiotic, which my body had a bad reaction to- INTERNAL BLEEDING!  It was awful!    After the reaction, I had to stay away from antibiotics, build my intestinal flora (which was ravaged), and recover from my illness with only natural remedies.  It was a long, slow recovery, but I am feeling a lot better.

Not perfect.  Better.

I am on my way to a full recovery, though, and feeling positive about the month of April- so positive, in fact, that I have agreed to participate in VEDA (video every day in April) on YouTube.  One of my most requested videos was a discussion about which natural remedies worked for me (the actual remedies are linked below if you just want to check them out), so I made that one today.  Here it is:
