Keeping It Fresh In The MorningFriday, April 20, 2012
Mornings are maybe my most productive moments of the day! Laughing as I type this....
I do try my best to prepare for the week the Sunday before, and to prepare clothing, backpacks and such the night before to keep for a smooth morning. But, a typical morning for me goes a little like this…
I wake up my kids, help get them dressed and groomed, snack packed, lunch packed, breakfast on the table, answering knock-knock jokes and questions about what day it is....all while I am getting ready for work! And all in about an hour's time!
My goal is to be as calm and encouraging in the morning, so they start their day with a fresh start! They deserve a fresh start, positive attitude and a good breakfast, so they will be ready to conquer the world of kindergarten!
As my twins are getting older, I am realizing that I cannot control everything that they eat, so I try my best to teach them about healthy choices and to keep these choices at home. For breakfast, I keep it fresh by giving them Tropicana Pure Premium Orange Juice, especially because it is from 100% Pure Florida fresh oranges, not from a dozen different countries, like many other brands. (I just learned about reading the label last year, that states what countries the oranges are from! Take a look, it's crazy to see how far away the juice you are drinking comes from!)
