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!

Excuses, Excuses

Dare To Share!

We all have flaws. And we all find certain characteristics to be weaknesses in other people.  Lately, however, there is a trend toward taking these flaws and turning them around so that they indicate a strength.

What?!

Bad habits are just that, BAD, and we need to stop making excuses for them.

For Example, just yesterday I saw a headline entitled “People Who Are Always Late Are More Successful and Creative.” First off, I’m pretty sure this was written by someone who is never on time as a comeback to all his friends who are sick and tired of waiting on his A$$.
