Ok, so here is the deal...I can't remember the last time I didn't feel even just a little bit tired. Oh wait yes I can, it was about 7 years ago....funny because my oldest daughter is 7.....hmmmmm? Don't get me wrong my kids are great sleepers, all through the night, they just have a massive amount of energy of which I am extremely jealous. With that said it is important for me to stayed fueled. The days of eating only Pizza Rolls, Cheez-its, and Dr. Pepper are long over.
It is also important for me to integrate healthy snacks for them through out the day. They love sweets like cookies, fruit snacks, and other sugary treats...I mean who doesn't? I also know they love fresh fruit, cheeses, yogurt, and nuts. They are going to eat which ever I put in front of them...the treats or the good stuff. So guess what? I am going to offer them the good stuff....after all the last thing I really want to do is pour more sugar down their little throats and ultimately give them even more energy...and not good energy the kind that makes you cranky and then crash...ummm no thanks.

My daily allows of happiness comes from Jesus, coffee, quality time with my little family of five, sometimes more coffee, and just being in the present...soaking up the little moments this season in my life has to offer.
