A Snack and Play Day
What happened when I tried the new Kristin Ess Shampoo and Conditioner
To be totally honest, a day around the house with no plans sounds pretty terrible to me. Okay, occasionally those are good in order to get stuff done, but I much prefer staying busy and arranging outings with the kids! We’ve been to every single park in the surrounding area, have lots of playdates with friends, and run errands together. And trust me, my van tells that story if you were to peek inside.
Since we are always on the go, I always have snacks with me. Even before kids, I would always carry some kind of snack in case hunger struck! So now with kids, who can sometimes manage to act like they are famished by extreme hunger only 30 minutes after breakfast, I always have snacks with me.
Justin, the boys, and I swung by the park on a nice day recently to let the boys stretch their legs and play before nap time. We started with a snack break, which ultimately meant they carried their little bags of snacks with them all over the playground!
Justin and I are both recovering picky eaters. One of us is recovering better than the other ::cough ME cough::, so I’m trying my best to give the boys healthy variety in their diet at an early age. They love Pure Growth Organic snacks and I love that they don’t have some of the junk in them that you’ll find in other snacks. I also LOVE that they are affordable as well. The characters that they can recognize on the bags make these snacks extra fun for the kids too. David calls them his “Paw Patrol snacks” and prefers to eat them straight out of the bag versus in a snack cup. Luke doesn’t discriminate about his snacks as much as David may, but he certainly gets excited to see Mickey Mouse on his bag!
David and Luke play so well together and always end up near one another at the park. I know the day will come when they won’t want me or need me to help them jump or catch them at the bottom of the slide, so I’m savoring it now. Justin loves playing with them too, and always encourages more risk-taking than I do at the park. I think that may be a dad thing! He’ll stand by as David climbs to the very top of a structure and then tell David to yell, “LOOK AT HOW HIGH I AM, MOM!” to get my attention.
Having the boys 14 months apart has already been so deeply rewarding. It is the absolute best to see them play with each other, and look for each other after nap time. There are certainly challenges with two kids that close together, but I would do it again like this in a heartbeat.
