You ever wonder why your kids only want to eat the same five meals? Well yes, because your kid is a picky eater but are you a picky eating paretn? Hmmm…Let’s discuss for a moment.
I know plenty of parents have an expansive palate and their kids just don’t because toddlers are so toddlerish. But let’s look at a different angle. My mom only eats about four vegetables so growing up my brother and I ate four vegetables and they were always prepared the exact same way. When I was 14 I worked in a soul food restaurant and began eating all kinds of stuff. My mom would be so grossed out. I would come home with meatloaf, stewed tomatoes, bread pudding, rice pudding, squash, spinach and plenty more. She would never touch my food.
With more and more food documentaries hitting our TV screens, most people are looking to purchase more organic and natural foods. But what about our skin care and oral care products? Did you forget those? I know I did for a while. A few years ago I was in Whole Foods after work for groceries and still needed to make a Target run for toothpaste. I was tired and decided to go with whatever Whole Foods had to offer. I strolled the aisle and found an Himalaya Bontanique Herbal Toothpaste. The flavor was pomegranate & neem and the price was right so I went with it.
Hey Y’all! So let’s talk Mondays. I know, I know, you hate Monday. But why? Because it’s back to work, school, hectic mornings and rushed dinners? Those are viable reasons but can’t we do something to make Mondays better? I think so.
A few years ago I was having a convo with my cousin about how much she absolutely hated Mondays. I get it but I don’t get it. She went on and on about how the weekend is over and it’s the busiest day at work and she’s so tired when it’s over and blah blah blah. My suggestion: find something positive about Monday and focus on that!
Hey Mamas! Let’s talk menstrual cycles for a few. Don’t be shy, we all get one, used to get one or have a daughter that will get one. I’ll go first.
My cycle came late at age 12 or 13. I was the last of all my friends. My cycle was never “normal”. At age 15 or so my Mama took me to the GYN and I was diagnosed with PCOS. I really liked that doc but the older I go I realized she described PCOS all wrong. I was under the impression I would NEVER be able to have kids without surgery or supplements. I was prescribed birth control pills and sent on my way.
Hey Mamas! Let’s talk health for a few. Not the kids health, yours! I know, I know, how dare I bring something to the table for you and not the kids?! As Mamas we run it all and if we’re not 100% (or close to it) we can’t run anything.
