I Redshirted My Son and I’m Okay With It (Now)

I’ve always been a planner. In my well organized and categorized mind, it only made sense that my son upon completion of pre-kindergarten this year would naturally transition into kindergarten in September. After all, he was a super smart four-year-old who could rattle off dinosaur names and facts like his ABCs, and who was reading multiple books every day.

In our house we celebrate EVERY accomplishment.  The big ones, the small ones, and all the ones in between.

Education on Nutrition is Vital

Nutrition is vital to any long-term lifestyle and training routine, and that’s especially important when planning healthy meals for your family. 

I believe in the importance of educating my kids about making their own choices and not forcing any single option on them.  Kids love to make decisions for themselves; so why not let them?
