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.

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!

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!

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.
