Friday Four! Week In Review
There is never a dull moment in our family. I could never share everything that happens, but this week, I wanted to at least share the highlights. I should seriously call myself a Never Stay At Home mom….Anyhoots enjoy!
Wee Olympics 2012
The Olympics’ are NOT over! Our version, Wee Olympics’ has just began. On we gathered up some of our friends (and even strangers kiddos) and headed for the park. Our babies aged 2-13 completed adorable obstacle courses, jump rope endurance, and even motor skills challenges. Everyone was a winner that day and celebrated with a treat from Mickey D’s. (Don’t tell me that you didn’t know they had a 400calories & under menu). Now the seniors of Bishop Madison Senior Living facility wants a piece of the action! How cool is that? So Wee Olympics has continued till the 29th to give these old school athletes time to warm up for the maze, musical chairs and bag toss. (I wanted to get a dance together but-the wee’s didn’t like the music) To be continued …..
QC Super Mom goes international!
The breastfeeding story has taken off.( Click here to see news video) It has been shared all over the US and even in the UK. I pray for the day that breastfeeding would be a norm over bikini tops in the grocery store or daisy dukes at the family picnic. Here’s the story in case you missed it.
So it’s true. I dabble in politics. It frustrates me so much I try to limit my conversation about it in public. But with the DNC coming to my town this year…..I will still remain cool as a cucumber. HOW? By helping one of my stay at home mom’s/sahm build her business, helping other moms attend it and getting my teen aged daughter another baby sitting gig. I have a mom that a cupcake baker & will be a vendor at this year’s Democratic Nomination Convention. So, yours truly came up with a brilliant way to help everyone. Can you say leverage? Everyone will be working together for a common good. She needs administrative help, my other moms want to attend the DNC & help a fellow sahm. My daughter will babysit her young daughter. In return, cupcakes for everyone, our children’s next b’day party will seem like the Cake Boss himself made a visit. Talk about a win-win-win situation!
Love Handles Be Gone!
After growing up on a southern diet, nine children, college life, and not working out for 5 years, my waistline and arms are beginning to expand. I see eating well has kept me healthy & feeling good, but …I can’t deny the power of motion. Over the years, I’ve became a HUGE fan of supplements (they save me time & the good ones actually work) I know there is NOTHING that compares to a GREAT workout. I used to go at 5:30am & loved it! I sweated off almost 80lbs and felt great! Now that we moved and have settled in a bit, I can pick up where I left off at in the gym. Heck, it’s right up the street. I could actually walk there! Well, gotta run, these sweatpants from college aren’t gonna squeeze on me themselves! Have a safe and family fun filled weekend! -QC SuperMom
