Snack Attack! Easy Snacks Ideas for Back to School

School is starting next week, so it is time to start getting ready for lunch packing...bleck!  Sorry, but I absolutely detest packing lunches...not sure why, but I do.  One morning during the last school year, when I was packing Kate's lunch, I realized that most of the items I was putting in her lunch box were ridiculously processed.  It's actually one of the reasons that I started this blog.  I decided that I needed to do a better job of making sure that I feed my children healthier foods,…

How to Be Summer Ready

As summer finally begins to make itself known around here (I know, everyone else is experiencing record highs, right?), last week I found myself feeling outsmarted again by our stuff.



"OK, everyone outside."

"Wait, where's your hat?"

"Do you have sunblock on yet?"

"I don't know. Where IS the sunblock?"

"Who used the sunblock last?!"



I've said it a million times. But here it goes again. My job description oftentimes feels like it must read: 50% SAHM duties /…

Maria's Random Rants - The Price We Pay

The dictionary defines guilt as “a feeling of responsibility or remorse for some offense, crime, or wrong, whether real or imagined.” Real or imagined, that sounds about right. Might even be more accurate, at least helpful, if they added a footnote, “Warning: Duration of guilt known to last several years. Atonement not guaranteed.” Now that’s the kind of guilt I know. Come to think of it, I didn’t know there was another kind.

 

It’s taken me a while, but I’m fairly proud of…

How To Get Your Toddler To Try New Foods

Many dietitians, nurses, and pediatricians have found that picky eaters can be won over to new and interesting foods by employing a trick of the trade called the "one-bite rule." It is as simple as the name implies: you simply ask that your child try one single bite of the new food you're introducing. By the time this rule can be applied, namely, to your toddlers and young children, they have already acquired a simple set of tastes. Don't blitz them with tangy… Continue

P is for Park and D is for Drive

Thirty-two years ago, I became a licensed driver, one of many pubescent teenagers let loose on the highways and byways of our great nation.  In Illinois in 1979, driver’s education was still offered in school and every student was required to take the class.  For the first quarter of my sophomore year, I sat in a classroom filled with students whose 16th birthdays were quickly approaching.

Sick and Bored, What To Do?

It's frustrating being sick. If you can't sleep but have to rest what do you do?  For the first few hours it may be fun but after that it is just boring.  How do we keep the mind busy while the body rests?  

For a lucky few this isn't a problem.  They are able to sleep and heal.  Sleep is a struggle for many of the rest of us though and those hours in bed or on the couch get very long.

Whether you are a child or an adult there are lots of options though.  Some you may not be…
