Easy & Fun Books for Kids to Ready

Reading is so fundamental to our children’s well-being. I have picked some great books that I feel your little ones will enjoy reading. As a kid, you can learn and be exposed to so much so why not expose them to something positive and fun. Our children are our future. I hope your babies enjoy reading just a little bit more.

 



It is so important that we as parents teach our children about our heritage and the importance of knowing our culture. I enjoy teaching my babies our culture and family history.

 

Being that I have a daughter of color, it’s very important for me to teach her that her natural hair is beautiful. I love getting her books that has a young girl on the cover that resembles her.

 

 

It is said that children should read at least 1 hour per day outside of being at school. At my house, even if they don’t have homework, they are required to read something and sometimes, I request them to give me a two paragraph report. I also ask them questions as well!

5 Ways For Busy Moms To Get Healthier



It is less than one day before it’s 2018 and I’ve made up my mind that I’m getting healthier! Can I be honest with you? This year has been super amazing and adventurous and not to mention starting a new journey in my life. I have got on track, then I fell off and I started working out, then a week later I quit.  It’s something about when you turn forty! I remember the days when I would kill to workout and jog around the trail. Now, the thought of working out, makes me cringe at the stomach. I know you as busy moms, stay at home moms, or mompreneurs, can relate to this emotional roller coaster? Well, I have a few tips that you can try going into the new year: Sit back and have a glass of wine and get ready for something new!

5 Ways for busy moms to get healthier

  1. Get honest with yourself. The first thing to do is admit to yourself where you are on your health journey and figure out how you got to where you are. Now, this is not a time to beat yourself up, but it’s a time of reflection.
  2. Move your body. I’m not saying you need to run a marathon, but a simple jog around your neighborhood or a little jump roping might not be a bad idea.
  3. Eating healthier: I know those wings are hard to put down, but instead of frying them, try baking them with a little lemon pepper. I found this great deal on healthy meal planning and I can’t wait to dive into it.  I thought you might be in need of some new and easy recipes! Grab your meal planning bundle here!
  4. Drink lots of water: I know you would rather have your coffee and soda, but at least make sure you get 8 glasses of water. My favorite way to drink water is by adding a few slices of lemon in it.
  5. Put you on the calendar. We as moms get so busy taking care of others that we leave ourselves out of the equations.  Start your new year off right with a new discovery of things you enjoy doing

I hope these few tips get you going in the right direction in the new year. Let me know some tips you will be incorporating into your life in the new year.
