Since I started training for and taking part in triathlons, it’s made me realize how important food is, not only while training, but in day-to-day life.
Long story short, I stumbled across this website late last week called Peek. It’s a new user testing platform where you submit your blog/website URL and a real person will visit your site, record a five minute video with their first impressions, and then it is emailed to you. For free.
It Still Hurts My Heart That I Made Him Fearful
by: Sharon DeVellis
Last summer, two men in our community drove around in a white van trying to entice kids to get in. Police issued warnings and it was covered in our local paper several times.
I remember when my kids were small and I knew every aspect of their life, 24/7. I also remember wanting a break, needing time away to recharge and reconnect with myself.
Oh, irony. How you mess with me.
Because now, my kids are older and I’m fighting to stay connected with them.
So there’s this school in Auckland that signed up to be a part of a study to encourage active play. Only the principal, who is now my hero, took it a step further and decided to abandon recess rules completely.
The end result?
A drop in bullying, serious injuries, and vandalism, and an increase in the kids’ concentration levels.
Valentine’s Day is coming up and while cute cards and pink everything may cut it with the younger set, if you’re a parent of older kids, finding a gift that isn’t too cutesy can be a challenge.
Listen, I know I’m not going to win any fans with this, but if you want to be less stressed and enjoy your mornings more, try getting up earlier. And I don’t mean waking up earlier, being in complete denial, and trying to fall back asleep. I mean actually getting out of bed.
It never fails. The first warm weekend of spring and my children chomp at the bit to have their bikes brought out from the garage. What also never fails is that I can never get the bikes down off their hooks and we all have to wait for my husband to get home to lift them down to the ground.
