Bread

How many times have you heard that eating bread is bad? I’ve heard this since I was about eight. I think I heard it on tv. Hearing that caused me to internalize it and an unhealthy relationship of guilt after enjoying some toast or a croissant was born. Yes, over eating bread can cause serious health issues. So is over […]

Kids & Winter Part 3

Hello Everyone Today I’ll be sharing what I’ve learned when it comes to snow pants. Babies and toddlers don’t need to wear snow pants or suits unless you are going for a walk, playing in the snow or spending time outdoors. I have not bought the triplets snow pants, they are not practical at the moment so I just decided to forgo that purchase. There are two types of snow pants I prefer. The first one is with straps for toddler and up to 7 year old. The second one is just the ones you button at the waist. My 8 year old (soon to be 9) has not wear his snow pants this winter so far. My preferred brand for snow pants is Carters Oshkosh because they sale the snow pants and jacket as a bundle. Make sure the snow pants are warm but light weight! If is not too cold outside I’ve used water proof sweatpants on top of the regular sweatpants When I had my first child, I bought him an adorable Winnie The Pooh snow suit… he wore it once and my second child wore it twice. With my second child I spent $100 on a snow suit … he wore it once and the triplets wore it once each… I know we are tempted to buy our bundles the best but sometimes we get carried away and end up with staff that becomes useless. I […]
