Getting the Most Out of Summer Camp: Alina Does Drama!

Getting the Most Out of Summer Camp: Alina Does Drama!

When I was young, I loved going to summer camp. From marine biology to my requisite soccer camp, attending summer camp was my opportunity to learn subjects I didn't get exposed to during the school year, meet new friends and engage in my community. This summer was Alina's first one as a school kid, meaning she attended preschool all year long and has a new routine during the summer months. We've been having lots of fun together!

Charging His Mornings With Cheerios Protein… and Kisses

Charging His Mornings With Cheerios Protein… and Kisses

Daddy D rushes out of here so quickly in the mornings. Like a flash, suited and booted, he flies out the door preparing to tackle another stressful, anxiety-ridden work day. I hate it. I'm usually stuffing a breakfast bar or a peeled orange in his hand as he kisses me good bye, knowing that he won't eat a morsel until lunch time.
