The Night Before Mother's Day
Happy Mother's Day
-- Julia Ward Howe was the first to proclaim Mother's Day in 1870. Her Mother's Day Proclamation was a pacifist reaction to the American Civil War and the Franco-Prussian War. The modern holiday of Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1908 when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in America. She then began a campaign to make Mother's Day a recognized holiday in the United States. Although she was successful in 1914, she was already disappointed with its commercialization by the 1920s.

First Mother's Day Celebrated
-- On May 10, 1908, the first Mother's Day service was held at St. Andrew's Church in Grafton, West Virginia in response to the request of one daughter, Anna Jarvis. Anna's mother had provided strength and support as the family made their home in West Virginia and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where her father served as a minister. When Mrs. Jarvis died on May 5, 1905, Anna was determined to honor her.

Would you like to prevent your toddler or pets from unrolling the entire roll of toilet paper, and stuffing it into the toilet, or trailing it through the house?

Make your own toilet roll cover/protector by recycling a plastic 2-liter soda pop bottle.

HOW TO MAKE:

Cut off the bottle top and bottom of the soda pop bottle, to form your toilet roll cover/protector.

Measure your wall mount toilet paper roll holder to see what size you need - mine was 4 3/4 inches (12 cm) across.

TIP: you can use the leftover bottom to make fancy flower-shaped ice cubes for punch - and the leftover top for a funnel for sand play!

Cut a slot in this toilet roll cover/protector, to allow you to pull the toilet paper through, about 1/4 inch (0.64 cm) high and 4 inches (10 cm) across.

If you are using double roll toilet paper, simply cut across completely - from one side to the other.

If you wish, cover all raw edges with plastic tape to match your decor - I only had black tape on hand, but you can use any color to match your decor.

If using double roll toilet paper, use a piece of plastic tape to tape across the open sides, attaching both sides, leaving an opening of about 1/4 inch (0.64 cm) or larger, for the toilet paper to hang out.

Remove your toilet roll and spindle from the wall mount, slide both inside your new toilet roll protector, and reattach the roll to the wall mount.

This should at least slow your toddler or pets down!

Naked Nursing Tank: Open Busted Tank Top
Your baby needs to nurse, but you are out in public and you are uncomfortable about showing off all that skin when you lift your top?

Layer one crop top, blouse, shirt, etc. over an old T-shirt or tank top (mix or match colors!).

Nursing Undershirts
Cut two nursing slits in the old tank top or T-shirt and hem around the raw edges (hemming is not necessary, but it's up to you).

The top layer shirt will provide discreet coverage, yet your baby will still have easy access to nurse.

When you lift or shift your outer shirt to nurse, your tummy is fully covered. If you unbutton your blouse to nurse, your cleavage is not exposed.

Your baby's head and your outer garment cover the exposed portion of your breast.

Plus, there are no slits or panels to readjust after feeding!
