Beverages

Every morning for the past 10 years I have had a cup of coffee with half and inch of milk. Yes, even while pregnant I drank coffee. During the summer months I like to have an ice coffee, juice or smoothie for breakfast. If the day is on the cooler side, I’ll made some Colombia hot chocolate (Chocolate Corona). For […]

June is for Breakfast

Growing up in the tropics was one of the most wonderful experiences so far. Besides my family what I miss the most is the heat, rain, and humidity. I love Canada but I’m not too fond of the weather. Every year except for the first year after the birth of all of my children, I avoid turning on the heat […]

Children at home

Hello all πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ As I’ve mentioned before… having premature triplets requires a level of social distancing similar to what all of us are experiencing today. I have also been a stay at home mom for the past 5 years. In the past 2 years, as a family we have changed our life in order to make sure the health of our smallest family members was optimal. The key to deal with kids at home. Make a schedule as a guide of what you would like to do but you must be flexible. You also need to schedule free time. Have a space where kids can run around just as they would do at the park. Open the curtains as well as windows. Let the fresh air and sun light shine. Parents/caregivers have a lot of patience and when you feel overwhelmed please step away. Leave your kids in a safe place or busy with an activity. If you need to run for 5 minutes to the washroom and relax. Remember kids need structure and they need to continue learning. However, they also need some normalcy and free play. Unscheduled play. I’m not an expert, I’m just a stay at home mom. I’m sharing what I have learned on the pass 5 years. γ€‹γ€‹πŸ¦Έβ€β™‚οΈπŸ¦Έβ€β™€οΈπŸ‘¦πŸ§’πŸ§’πŸ§’πŸ§’ Follow us on Instagram and Twitter @ journeysandus7

Tracking my steps

Healthy habits can only be achieved with a dose of honesty. In January I decided to buy a step counter. After a few days of research I decided to buy the Samsung Galaxy Fit E. It was on a budget and it gives the time, weather, heart rate and counts calories. I’ve enjoyed wearing this a lot and it has […]
