Honest Review: Suja Juice

Ever get the feeling you forgot to eat? So you grab something near you and scarf it down. You might not even know what you just consumed but now you’re not going to go full on Hangry Hulk mode. But then you feel hungry again in 10 minutes and repeat the cycle. You eat an empty filler. That’s what I call them. Those food out there that keep you happy and full for the moment but don’t help you reach your nutritional goals. Mostly they are made of sugar or simple carbs. Enter Suja Juices.

My son called me stupid: why I let him.

It was simple enough. Standing in the kitchen making breakfast one day, I heard his little voice. “Mommy you’re stupid” Thankfully I had already put down whatever utensils was in my hand. My mind spinning as I thought about how long I was going to ground him. How many treats were to be taken away. I paused, I took a breath, I turned to the little figure behind me. “What did you say?” Continue reading

How to workout when you’re just so damn tired.

Ok folks! Let’s admit it. It’s a random weeknight at 8:30pm and you’re still trying to get your kid to go to sleep. The same child that got up at 5:30am asking for a snack and refused to stop even after you said yes and explained that you had to go the bathroom first, with the door open since he really wasn’t getting the point.

The pillow that saved our marriage. Sort of.

Hubs and I have been together since I was 19. Let’s just say that’s a lot closer to two decades then it used to be. I’m really thankful that for most of that time our fights have consisted of disputes about who is going to fold the laundry (that I picked up, washed and dried) or the dishes (that I made the food that was eaten off of). Occasionally money and once and a great while something serious. Continue reading

The Importance of Risk: Raising Fearless Children

If you know nothing else of me from this blog journey, you know I’m a mom of boys. Two boys who love to climb, jump, and swing from anything above eye level. And I’m ok with that.

I think that when a child is young there is a need for risk. Now I don’t mean jumping out of a plan without a parachute risk. But maybe jumping off a knee high rock wall with holding their hands risk. Climbing up a tree risk. And even eating dirt risk. Continue reading
