How do I keep my family healthy?

I was just asked the question “How do you keep your kids healthy”? I thought about the question long and hard,everyday I am thinking of ways to  do just that. I have three kids,my oldest daughter is type 1 diabetic so keeping her happy and healthy is something I have to stay on task with everyday from healthy carbs to making sure that whenever we go out of the house I have snacks,Juice,Insulin and that’s just to keep her safe I then have to worry about Flu season,the stomach bug because she doesn’t take to those things lightly unlike a child would with a healthy immune system…

Having a Child with type 1 has actually benefited my two other children as far as keeping there own immune system in check,I am always harping on washing hands,eating good snacks,buying food without High fructose corn syrup,Hydrogenated oils and only buying the best quality Organic food for my family. I do this to keep us all in line as a family and to keep all of us healthy.

I then thought outside the box “Healthy” I make sure to have band aids, first aid creme,water and snacks in my car. How many times I have I been to the park and a skinned knee occurs,or at a soccer game and my youngest always complains of hunger (Growing Boy)…

So now I’m like an oiled machine always keeping my family well and always making sure they are both Happy and HEALTHY!

Old Navy is a Great Place to start shopping for Back to School

Craziness! It’s that time for parents to start thinking about Back to School shopping UGH!…Very sad actually,this is time of year when the weather is still shining summer sun it’s hard to think about the future of fall clothes. I decided to shop a little early because I saw some great deals at Old Navy,they are running a $10 and under Back to School Sale,so I knew I had to check it out. I took my son Jack and he had a ball picking out new digs…As some of you know he is very much into sports (Soccer and Lacrosse) and always has his soccer shorts on and T’s so I knew we had to stay within the active wear section,but much to my surprise he headed toward the plaid shorts and fun Milk Mustache  T-shirt and he knew he had try them on,he of course sniffed out a soccer T that was of course heading in our cart along with some active shorts the he said were “Comfy Cozy”! I noticed in their store they are running a Style sweepstakes where you can upload a photo in the store for a chance to Multiply your style how fun is that?… 

 

So if you think you have the Back to School blues about starting to get your kids ready for school in a few weeks,head over to Old Navy your spirits will be lifted by the $10 and under sale and also enter your photo for a chance to win lots of goodies…
