With endless energy and a constant need to use their imaginations, keeping three kids busy and entertained can sometimes be difficult. My kids are yet to say, “I’m bored” but their actions can easily speak those dreaded words loudly.

I love spring weather. That time when in the morning I need a light jacket and then it’s in the low 70s through the day. The time I can open the windows and let the fresh air breeze through the house. It’s the prefect running weather to me. But where did it go? I feel like spring just vanished. Non-existent. Poof. Gone.

I am a huge fan of smoothies. They are easy to change up, add variety, and I can improvise ingredients depending on what I have on hand. I can enjoy a smoothie in the morning, as a snack, or any time throughout the day.

In just a few weeks, school will be out and summer break will be here. I will be back to having all three energetic boys in the house all day long. That’s more fun activities, more planning, and less time I am going to have to do other things. Which means I need to make sure I have all my spring cleaning tasks completed beforehand.

I’m talking about my dog’s healthy lifestyle and serving her Cesar® home delights™ as part of a sponsored series with Socialstars. All opinions are my own. #CesarHomeDelights

Two years ago, even though we were talking about getting a puppy, I often talked myself out of it. At the time the boys were 1, 2, & 3 years old. How would we find a dog that would be good with little kids? Even more, could I handle the care for a new pup? A dog would be a sixth family member, so we went back and forth almost weekly deciding if it was the right time.

Cooking for a family of 5 (which includes 3 growing boys) means spending a lot of time in the kitchen. It means coming up with fun family-friendly meals and desserts for all to enjoy. It also means trying to get the food on the table in a timely fashion because the kids are always hungry and it always “takes forever” to make. One way to eliminate all this is getting the kids to help out in the kitchen.

The volume that things change before, after, and during kids is extraordinary. That is why I think it’s important not to judge someone when you don’t know their situation. Of course, you never know how you would truly handle situations until you go through them.
