Summer Activities for Pre-K & Kindergarten with Avid4 Adventure Camps!

Dare To Share!

With summer approaching fast, I, like most parents, am scrambling to make sure my kids have plenty of things to do to keep boredom at bay! For my older children, this is not as challenging. There seems to be million opportunities for kids over 7. However, for my younger kiddos, ages 3-6, I have a harder time finding camp-like activities that I am also comfortable sending them to alone.

My Preschooler is super smart, very curious, and easily bored…so we need some seriously great programming!

Looking for The Best Colorado Summer Camp For Your Kids? Avid4 Adventure Is #1!

Dare To Share!

One thing I fight with my kids about ALL year long, is screen time. It feels like as soon as they walk in from school or wake up on Saturday morning they are begging to watch or play something on a device!

Between the appeal of YouTube, all the gaming systems and their specialized games, Netflix, etc.  my “mom” activities simply can’t compete. Which means I am constantly shooing them outside and trying to come up with things that will keep them occupied, stimulated, and growing in various skills.

With 6 kids at home, this is something I cannot do on my own and why I am so happy to have Avid4Adventure Summer Camps in Colorado! Continue reading “Looking for The Best Colorado Summer Camp For Your Kids? Avid4 Adventure Is #1!”

Dare To Share!

This post is sponsored by AllWhites but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

I don’t know about you, but parenting along with attempting to maintain a fitness regimen AND eating healthy, is a difficult feat to say the least! That’s why I love AllWhites® 100% real liquid egg whites for my family. Not only do they provide me with the protein my body needs for building lean muscle, but I can make my family easy, healthy snacks that they love! One of my favorites is a protein-packed salad with avocados!

Since the birth of my 6th baby 7 months ago, I have really struggled to lose the last 10 pounds of baby weight. I have found myself indulging in too much sugar and not enough protein. AllWhites® has helped me add protein to my diet without the added fat of many meats and cheeses and thus is helping me toward my fitness and weight loss goals!

I recently came up with a delicious, protein packed, tangy, avocado salad for my family using AllWhites®. It is delicious on toast, as a sandwich or even as a dip! Click To Tweet

My Uterus, My Problem: But Seriously, How Many Kids Is Enough?

Dare To Share!

I have six children, and a very obvious obsession with babies. When we had our fifth we thought our family might be complete. But a year went by and we both felt the tug at our hearts that meant we had more love to give.

All our children wanted another bundle of joy as well, so we went for it. Number 6 came along about six months ago and my husband and I both immediately questioned whether we would truly be happy if this was our last baby.

Society’s Fear Of Sugar Is Poisoning Our Children’s Drinks

Dare To Share!

If there is one thing I really don’t understand about America’s food culture, it is our obsessive fear of SUGAR. Despite this, we still crave sweets, so we satisfy ourselves with sugar-free drinks and candy, we bake with sugar substitutes and have waged an all out war against high fructose corn syrup.

Fine. We’re adults, we have enough knowledge to understand what we are putting in our bodies and how it could effect us in the long run. I have to admit to a love of Diet Coke myself.

Where it really gets my goat, however,  is when parents make their kids freak out about sugar. Continue reading “Society’s Fear Of Sugar Is Poisoning Our Children’s Drinks”

Break the Boredom of Summer with Avid 4 Adventure Camps!

Dare To Share!

Winter is coming to an end, FINALLY!!

I don’t know about you, but I am looking forward to a break from the cold as well as the school grind as much, if not more than my kids! I love watching my children be adventurous during summer, experiencing and learning through play!

There is one thing about summer I don’t look forward to, however. Five whiny little voices complaining that they are bored; “There’s nothing to do!” “It’s too hot to play outside” “There’s nothing fun around here!”

Ugh! This drives me nuts. I want my children to play outside, to be adventurous and learn from their environment. I want them to scrape their knees, climb trees, make friends, and BE CHILDREN for Pete’s sake!

Thankfully, I have found the perfect solution! Aviid4 Adventure Camps throughout Colorado and California! These camps teach pre-K-12th graders the power of authentic outdoor adventure with climbing, paddling, biking, and hiking! I wish I was a kid again so I could go too!

Plus, I have a special offer for my readers at the bottom of this post! You can sign up at www.avid4.com or call 800-977-9873 Now!

10 Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me As A New Mom

Dare To Share!

Sleep when the baby sleeps; seriously just

f*cking do it

This is one of those pieces of advice that EVERY new mom gets and that EVERY new mom scoffs at.

“How am I supposed to sleep when the baby sleeps?! I have cleaning to do and laundry to drown in! AHHHHHH!”

I didn’t listen for the first few of my babies either ladies…And then one day after baby #4 I was so exhausted, so needed to heal my body and mind, that I said F*ck it and took a nap with my baby each day for a week.  Guess what? My house didn’t explode, my husband thanked me for not being an a crazy-sleep-deprived-wacko, and no one judged me that I had dirty dishes in the sink.
