When the alarm went off this morning, at 6:30, I looked outside and the ground was covered with snow. It’s currently 26 and windy. When did this start happening to our planet? Was I just that clueless as a kid that I didn’t notice it? I certainly do not remember having as many snow days from school as the boys have. We had to make up 11 days this year. It was so crazy that they actually extended our school days by an hour. This is a bit of an inconvenience, however, it’s better than extending the end of the school year.

It really warms my heart to say that I have two of the sweetest boys any mother could ask for. Yes they are your typical boys picking on each other and talking back but, they both have beautiful hearts. Royal (10) would sit on the bus with a Kindergarten student on the first day of school so they wouldn’t feel scared. Spencer (5) will pick up anything that someone drops and hand it back to them. While every parents thinks that they are getting it wrong, it’s moments like these that show you really are getting it right. The boys have been through a lot in the past few years and they still laugh, smile and shine!
While trolling around YouTube, I came across this video about bullying. While bullying has always been an issue, it seems that nowadays it’s even worse. Maybe not worse but more acknowledged by society. The school sends home papers all the time and there are signs all over the halls about this problem.
This has to be one of the best bullying videos that I have seen in a very long time. I want to stress that no one asked me to share this, I was not pitched to share it, I was not paid to share it. I am sharing it with you because I think it is a very important topic and Shane Koyczan tells it well! It is a powerful video with a little humor in it. Even if you don’t have children, adults can learn from this video as well. Sometimes adults don’t realize their own behavior and it is carried over to their children.
I will say that there are 1 or 2 cure words (out of the 12 minutes he speaks) in it so you may not want to watch it around your children. I am willing to let Royal watch this and forgo the curse. I am sure he has heard worse in his life. The message of the video outweighs him hearing it. I would love to hear your comments on what you thought. If you have another video you would like to share, please leave the link in the comments for others. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did and you will share this post!
