Kids and Food

DinnerWarWhat do you do when your kid says, “I don’t like what you made for dinner. I want something else.” ??

Mom I want “____” for dinner instead of what you made? What your response?

Things We’ve Said to Our Kids to Get them to Eat…
1. Please?
2. Try holding your nose.

3. See how the fish is pink? Princesses love pink. Salmon is what princesses eat! It’s princess food! Yay princesses!!!
4. If you don’t eat this, I will take the dog for a walk and never come home.
5. You know how sometimes a needle is so sharp you don’t even feel it? That’s what this chili is like. It’s so spicy that you won’t even taste anything.
6. Try the swordfish. It’s like white salmon.
7. Try the cauliflower. It’s like white broccoli.
8. Try the tofu. It’s like white-ish chicken.
LOL…. Your suggestion….?


Words to Boost Your Day

checkmarkWhat kind of day are you having? Ohhhhhh! I get it… Here’s something to help make you feel better! One of the first places I go, God’s Word! The Bible has great quotes to help brighten your day and help you reflect a different attitude.

The Bible is a great tool to turn a rainy day to sunshine in no time.

Psalm 50:15 – and call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.

2 Thessalonians 3:16 – Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in every way. The Lord be with you all.

Philippians 4:6-7 – do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

John 16:33 – I have said these things to you, thatin me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.

Matthew 7:7 – Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

1 Peter 5:6-7 – Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 – Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

I Just Need Some Space

Things Kids Get Away With…That You Can’t

kiddrawingKids are able to get away with an enormous amount of things that you and I (adults) can not get  away!  Of course it’s under the guise of “they’re only kids.” I believe these little munchkins :-) think they’re above the rules! Here is a list of a few of the infractions…

  • Blatantly throwing food on the floor… Seriously? There’s a ball right there in your hand.
  • Touching someone else for no reason… This is something that kids do without consequence until…
  • Saying dinner is “gross”… Why can’t I say the same exact thing? But no, then that would be a major issue. Adults clearly cannot get away with blatantly insulting a chef/spouse to his or her face.
  • Throwing a tantrum in the mall… Kids save their worst, most uncontainable fits for when you’re calmly trekking through a mall… But imagine an adult acting in such a manner. NOT?
  • Biting people… I mean, really.
  • Opening someone’s gifts… You know someone else’s gift… We’ve all seen this. Yet, no one wants you involved in their Secret Santa.
  • Refusing to get dressed It’s like dealing with a self-important Hollywood starlet in diapers.
  • Climbing on countertops/tables They are not monkees…
  • Crying when barely injured

Stay hydrated ladies!

drinkmorewaterFact… women are more likely to suffer from heat exhaustion and heat stroke

Obviously you should stay on top of your fluid intake all the time but especially before workout days or times when you will be outside… hydration happens best when you do it 24 hours prior to your workout or outdoor activities

For instance if you have to be at the ball field all day Saturday don’t wait till you get to the ballpark to start increasing your water intake… start Friday :-) you will feel so much better!”
