Our kids may not live to be our full age

Yesterday I found this video, on the How To Be A Dad site. While I already try my best to keep sugary and processed foods out of my kid’s diet, I was a little teary eyed when I watched this… When I was growing up my parents gave us the healthier foods. We had wheat bread and grape nuts cereal, not white bread and cocoa puffs (even though I would have LOVED that). Sugar and sweets were for special occasions. We ate fast food as a treat… maybe twice a month? I’m trying my best to now teach my kiddo how to eat well. Gardening has been great for this! My kid hates spinach in the house, but actually EATS the spinach off the plant outside. Silly, but awesome. Watching this video made me feel like I am doing the right thing by limiting her processed and sugar intake. Check out the video if you’d like, and share it if you feel like it’s something that is important to you too.

Note: I know this is not true for every kid, but I feel like we should be more aware of what’s going in our kiddo’s belly’s. This vid is a nice little reminder.


And, since this post got all serious… how about a silly work out video from my kid? She just started doing a “work out” randomly… so I recorded it. Of course.

This article says it all.

We are responsible for our kids. Not society or our schools or a village. We parents bear the most direct and biggest responsibility and we need to act as such. Hooray for Paper Mama reminding us of that. Thank you Chelsea. You are a great mom.

I can feed them just right, but when it comes to their friend’s parents, they like treat them like everyday is a carnival day. I mean like who buys frozen mini corn-dogs nowadays?

the answer, your neighbors and sleepover kids’ parents. All the worst in the supermarket is at their friends’ house I tell you. My goodness.

Don’t read those ingredients on those frozen corndogs, you might not like what you see.

I looked up Corn dog on Wikipedia and the ingredients are simple, hot dog and batter.

Supermom October 16, 2012

I am referring to the hot dog.
