Encourage multiculturalism

Growing up in a military family I was always encouraged to try new foods and I’m continuing that tradition with my own children. While my kids are wildly adventurous about food there is a spark of light in their eyes when they try new things. Sushi happens to be a treat in our family andContinue reading “Encourage multiculturalism”

Catcher Mom

I haven’t been a huge fan of baseball or softball my whole life like some of the other moms I know but recently I’ve become obsessed with it. You see, my kids are both catchers. They’ve gravitated towards it organically and as my son follows big sister’s footsteps I find myself infinitely proud of themContinue reading “Catcher Mom”

Truth

I’ve learned recently it’s not about what you say. It’s about what they hear. The other day at breakfast my husband told my daughter not to stuff her face at breakfast out at a local diner. What my daughter heard was you’re fat. Now. The circumstance was that we were about to pay the billContinue reading “Truth”

Failing

This week has been all about failing but also about lessons learned. I failed a 15:00/1:00 x 2 internal run and then I failed my first day of trying to eat in a calorie deficit. 600+ extra calories get eaten quickly!!! Closing my activity rings is insanely harder than I thought it’d be but IContinue reading “Failing”

I struggle with it…

Cleaning is not my strong suit. I always talk about how I struggle with it, but today I felt really good about the work I accomplished in my living room. It looks habitable today, right? A rug is missing because we have a puppy who still seems to think peeing in the house is cute.Continue reading “I struggle with it…”

Any time I get to have one of these sandwiches, it’s a treat!

Did you know that April 2nd is National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day? There is nothing better than the combination of smooth peanut butter and sweet jelly. Crunchy or smooth, strawberry or grape, any time I get to have one of these sandwiches, it’s a treat! To celebrate today I’ve made a short list ofContinue reading “Any time I get to have one of these sandwiches, it’s a treat!”

Coming soon to a field near you…

Today’s prompt I have to spark my creativity is to share about something person and fun you have coming up. Seems like a pretty easy assignment, but today I’m having trouble getting my words together. While I’m sure that all parents are wishing for normalcy, considering the last year, for me it’s the future sportContinue reading “Coming soon to a field near you…”

It’s not painless

Distance learning should be getting easier for us. It’s been over 365 days since the kids have been full time. You’d think we’d know how to do this type of thing painlessly. It’s not painless. It’s actually torture at this point for me to try to get the kids to do what they need toContinue reading “It’s not painless”

I doubt that’s how it works exactly…

What are your thoughts on affirmations? I’m not sure I am all about them at this point. I mean I know if you have a positive mindset you can put yourself into a better mood, but can you really manifest something by merely stating it over and over again? I doubt that’s how it worksContinue reading “I doubt that’s how it works exactly…”
