Kids and food can make for a super stressful combination, especially when it entails a child refusing food you are giving them. Every child is unique and every family has to make their own choices. I am sharing how we feed our kiddos, why we believe food is important and how I believe it has shaped their food preferences.
Laundry is truly never ending. I think I am finally accepting that it is never, completely done. Instead of fighting it, I am learning how to manage it. After our break of routine during spring break, I am getting back to it. I am sharing today our system that has been working for several months now, products we use and why it works for us. And also how the kids help out.
So it was my birthday week this past week. What a year! On my 30th birthday, I was still wondering if we would ever have kids. Mid-thirties, this blog was born and shortly after so was baby #3. And now late-ish (lol) thirties I am homeschooling, enjoying this blog (a little more consistently) and learning even more about myself through Jesus every day. This is how the journey started and what I would like to share with you here.
We are only two months in, but 2019 has come in with a bang for our family. Getting back into a routine has been difficult, but somehow, some way a meal plan was made on Sunday and so far it has been followed.....for the most part.
Here we go again, trust issues seem to creep up when you least expect them. At least they do for me. It can be quite unsettling to have the realization that all those unresolved feelings are really an issue with trust. And for me, it’s been my trust in God. As I look back at previous posts, apparently this isn’t new for me.
Food allergies is a topic that is always a little controversial, even in like-minded circles sometimes. Everyone has an opinion and their doctor (or doctors) has an opinion. There are those people that do not even believe food allergies exist and then there are those that may choose to eliminate a food from their diet because it's "trendy" or the "thing to do" right now. Both of these groups are extreme and not ones I would personally take advice from. Everyone's body is unique and responds to foods differently. It's a fairly long post today, documenting our allergy story.
It seems like Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) has every symptom/effect under the sun. Everything from irregular periods, infertility, cysts on the ovaries, acne, unwanted hair growth, thinning hair (where you do want it - on your head), elevated testosterone to the more serious issues effects such as, diabetes, high blood pressure, increased risk of heart disease and really the list seems to go on. (source: Mayo Clinic) If you are trying to get pregnant, check out my Pregnancy Story. For those with kiddos, PCOS just doesn't go away.
Mondays are always long. Today was a little longer. No caffeine today. My husband and I made a pact, a wager, if you will, on who would crack this week. I'm determined to win and beat this accountability partner of mine.
Please check back often as I am adding or modifying pages as time permits.
Scripture/Quote of the Week:
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
