It’s the last official weekend of Summer and I’m hardcore celebrating. And by hardcore celebrating, I mean lighting my @raedunn fall scented candles, binge watching Netflix and going to bed before 10pm. 🙌🏻 Remember when our nights didn’t even start until 10pm? I would dance all night, get back home with just enough time to shower and change before heading out to work. AND I could work a full 8 hours without ever feeling the fact that I hadn’t slept in more than 24 hours... Now I’m unable to function if someone wakes me up 15 minutes early. Getting old is awesome. .

It’s the last official weekend...

I read something the other day on Facebook that said that the song that was number 1 on your 14th birthday, defines your life. I googled it, excited to find a message, a sign (I’m a sucker for that sort of thing). Instead, I found it was “Cream” by Prince. 😐 Cream? What does that mean? Ice cream? Coffee creamer? 
So I looked it up... and read the lyrics. "Cream" was meant to mean “cream of the crop”. There are lyrics like “everything you do is success” and my favorite part... “Do your dance
Why should you wait any longer?
Take a chance
It could only make you stronger”  Message received, Prince. Message received. 
What song was number one on your 14th birthday?

This girl lost another tooth last week. I’ve been waiting for this toothless smile since she knocked her other one out last year. Unfortunately, it’s not going to last long because her adult tooth is already growing in 😭. (Zoom in to see) Yesterday I noticed both of her front-bottom teeth are peeking out behind her baby teeth too. Does anyone know how to slow down time. A button? A phone call? Maybe a time machine? My baby isn’t a baby anymore. Cue the tears. Have you celebrated any milestones with your kids recently?

I don’t get bouquets of flowers for no reason…. But I do appreciate the flowers that grow by our mailbox, like this one. And it made me realize something this morning.  I’m over it. 
I’m over comparing my life to other people’s lives on social media.
My house might not be as fancy. 
My wardrobe is not as expensive. 
I don't apply makeup as well or even at all most days.
I don’t have beautiful, long flowing hair.
I don’t drive a car that’s worth bragging about. 
We don’t go on lavish trips around the world. 
I don’t carry loads of money in designer handbags. 
Does that make me less of a person? 
Does that make me less of an influencer? 
No. It makes me a regular 40-something Mom who has chosen to open up and share our lives on social media.  It makes me someone who has built this hobby of photography and writing into a business that has solely supported my family for a year and a half. 
I’m proud of that. 
I’m proud that I’m not a follower.
I’m proud that I have worked hard for what I’ve achieved.
I’m proud of influencers like me who are unapologetically themselves.  What are you proud of? .

It was just after Iyla's third birthday. She seemed to be on track, at least according to the pediatrician's checklist. She could follow instructions, name most familiar things, knew her first name, spoke in sentences and could carry a conversation, though she was hard to understand most of the time. We enrolled her in preschool that year and she was a little social butterfly. But as that school year went on, her teachers started to notice that she was struggling to get her words out. Most people that know Iyla today, have no idea that she was in speech therapy classes for two years. They have no idea that I fought it for almost 6 months and that I felt a tremendous guilt about it, because I thought it was my fault that she was stuttering as badly as she was. Today on the blog, I’m sharing the mistakes I made, in hopes that if you are ever in this situation, you take advantage of early intervention. .

We always pack the essentials when we're heading out in this Florida heat, including snacks, sunblock and @smartwater, because we know how important it is to stay hydrated. We love smartwater® because it's purified water made using vapor distillation, similar to the way water is purified in nature. It's available in 700mL and 1L bottles.

Back to school time has arrived. Time to think about getting back into the routine, packing lunches, waking up on time and making sure that the house is full of healthy and fun snacks. At least that’s what it’s like in our house. This week, I’ve been working on coming up with some fun snack ideas that the girls can create themselves, when they get home from school. They love to prepare things that they can eat easily, while they do their homework. Their favorite ingredient? Peanut butter! So here are our family’s 5 fun snack ideas that include peanut butter!

Banana, Peanut Butter, Coconut and Chocolate Chips

Banana and peanut butter is one of those flavor combinations that most people absolutely love. We took it up just a notch and added a few chocolate chips and sprinkled it with shredded coconut. Cut them in bite sized pieces for the kids and it’s an instant hit!

Crackers, Peanut Butter, Jelly and Berries

While my kids can eat a pb&j sandwich anytime, for snack time, they prefer using crackers or Melba toast. They are bite sized and perfect for their little hands. Top the cracker or Melba toast with jelly, peanut butter and your favorite berry! We love blueberries or strawberries. Yum!

Celery, Peanut Butter and Trail Mix

Growing up, I was always given, what we called, “ants on a log”.  Celery, peanut butter and raisins. That flavor combination still instantly transports me to my Nana’s kitchen table. We decided to kick it up a notch and swap the plain raisins for trail mix. Of course, my kids chose the trail mix that had little chocolate pieces in them, but you can buy it without if you aren’t interested in the added sugar. Fill the celery’s valley with peanut butter and top with your favorite parts of the trail mix. The kids can use this opportunity to practice their counting and/or patterns!

*Fun fact: We couldn’t figure out what to call that part of the celery so we asked the girls…. They came up with “celery nut or cel-nut”, “celery crook”, “celery dugout” and “celery bunker”.  What do you call it?

Apple, Peanut Butter, Sunflower Seeds and Coconut

We’ve always enjoyed apples and peanut butter in our house, but we have been trying to come up with something else that goes well with them. We did share the peanut butter sandwich with coconut recipe, which we still love, but I challenged the girls to come up with a topping that would go well with those three ingredients. When sunflower seeds came up, I wasn’t sure we’d love it. Originally, the girls wanted chocolate covered sunflower seeds, but we couldn’t put chocolate on all of the options. We were very pleasantly surprised by this combination. I love the crunch and saltiness it added. Slice your apples, top with peanut butter and sprinkle with sunflower seeds (chocolate covered or not) and shredded coconut. I think you’ll be surprised by this one.

Pretzel, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chips and Sprinkles

Ever since we bought a chocolate covered pretzel at Disney World years ago, we have been hooked! I wanted to come up with an option that the girls could easily make at home.  Take a pretzel rod, spread peanut butter on the upper half, all the way around and then roll your favorite toppings. The girls chose dark chocolate chips and sprinkles. It doesn’t harden the way chocolate does, but it also didn’t fall apart like I thought it would, so it’s a great option for the kids.

peanut butter snack options for kids

Do you make snacks with peanut butter too? Share some of your fun, flavor combinations and maybe we’ll put them into rotation at our home too!
