Easter Lessons Learned By Mom

Posted by: Tamara Palmer on Apr 16, 2015 in Family Fun, health, Parenting

I always said before I became a mother that I would trust in my gut instinct and do what I felt right no matter what the people around me were saying. I have held true to that until this Easter weekend. Our family had a great time at our church’s Easter egg hunt for the family. You may ask what does this have to do with me sticking to my gut, well you wait and see.

My son is almost 2 ½ years old. Day 1 since he was born, I always said I was going to feed him healthier food choices than what most kids these days are eating. I have stuck to that. Yes, there are days that I may be exhausted from work and it’s easier to swing by McDonald’s to get him dinner. Even though I am at McDonald’s, I try to make the healthiest of a decision in his food choice (if that’s really possible with fast food). That means choosing yogurt and fruit instead of French fries or choosing a hamburger with only ketchup instead of fried chicken nuggets. I know it’s not “healthy” per se, but sometimes I just need an easy going night after a long day at work.

A Sweet Surprise This Easter for a Recovering “That Mom”

Posted by: Zelma Frederick on Apr 09, 2015 in Family Fun, Parenting, Toddlers

Zelma2No matter how crazy work, civic or personal obligations become, there is something about celebrating Easter with family that puts everything back in perspective.

My husband and I have been hosting an Easter brunch at our house for my in-laws and their families for the past several years.  Since this new tradition began, we have taken the opportunity to do a little spring cleaning at our house and “pretty up” our yard with new flowers to enjoy in the nice weather.  Now that we have kids, we have had to add to our annual event by figuring out the logistics of the Easter Bunny (who Nate Dogg will only refer to as Peter Cottontail) and his famous basket of treats.  This year, my work life was busier than normal during the weeks leading up to Easter, so I found myself struggling to get everything together in time.  And by “get everything together” I mean that I am one of “those moms” who enjoys crafty things and being the  hostess with the mostest . . . and by that I mean, that I’m one of “those moms” who enjoyed those things when I had the time and who now stresses to do everything I used to do before kids and before being busy with work and other obligations … and by that I mean, I am one of “those moms” who stresses myself out (at times) to get it all done – with a smile on my face! This year, however, I finally realized I can’t do it all – and wait for it – no one cares but me!

Time Flies When You Have a Little One

Posted by: Tamara Palmer on Apr 08, 2015 in Family Fun, Milestones, Parenting

Wow… who knew that trying to write a blog every other week would be so difficult when you have a child. I try and tell myself that I can be super-mom, but there are times when it just doesn’t pan out. This would be one of those times. I have written since the beginning of January and it’s amazing the amount of things that can happen in just two quick months.

We are already going into the second quarter of the year. Before we know, Christmas will be here again. But for now, we enjoyed Easter and the blessing of Jesus Christ coming back so forgive our sins.

But don’t throw the bunny out with the bathwater. There are ways to creatively and generously deal with leftover and unwanted Easter candy.
