Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

Although I am writing this at the end of December, I am posting it as of the beginning of October. This is when I decided to embark on a new adventure. I had been looking for birthday presents for Ben and Carlee and remembered Discovery Toys. A friend had given us some as gifts when Ben & Carlee were born. At that time I had looked at the website and noticed that it was a direct sales company. I had previously sold PartyLite and enjoyed it but never had the time or resources to make it successful.

Anyway, I debated for awhile about starting a Discovery Toys business. Of course needed hubby to be supportive because it would mean he would be here with the kids anytime I needed to be out doing shows. He was supportive and the final decision was made when I realized that the worst case scenario was that if I couldn't make it work I would still end up with some great toys at a reasonable price.

I joined Discovery Toys early in October and have been quite busy with it ever since.
I have been really enjoying it and obviously love the toys. My new goal in life is to never buy battery operated toys for my kids again! Unfortunately I had already purchased the boys some toys with batteries for Christmas, but those are the last!

I have learned so much about the educational aspects of Discovery Toys and how they encourage learning. I have decided that a kid's job is to play, so they should be learning while they play. It is so cool that Discovery Toys are designed for exactly that purpose. My hope and prayer is that my new focus is setting my kids up for future educational success!

The best part about being a Discovery Toys consultant is that I am being paid to play!! Unfortunately there are some silly cross-border rules that state I cannot sell into Canada. But I hope that all my Canadian friends and family will find a DT consultant that can help them become as passionate about these toys as I am becoming!!!

The time I spent setting up my business and doing shows obviously has cut into my blogging time. But I hope that now that I have things set up and running fairly smoothly I can now get back to blogging! I miss blogging and I miss being able to share our lives and our kids with those that we love who are far away. I am trying to balance everything so that I can do all of it, it certainly is a struggle! So, now that I have blogged about my Discovery Toys business, I will leave you with my DT website and say no more about it on here! Well unless it is really important and has something to do with the kids!
