I am realizing I have to expect a little less from my kids. Now that they are the age they are I feel they can do most things themselves. Wrong. Take Jenna. For those of you that don't know my girl Jenna, she is a sugar addict. ADDICT! She is the first one to find any candy or junk in the house and consume it ridiculously fast! If given the chance she would sneak an entire sugar bowl if she could. I have gotten into this easy processed food trap that I said I never would. I just tell her to grab a snack when she is hungry and her first choice is the pantry. Never the fridge where the "real" food is. When the babies were babies I only feed them natural foods that I had made and snacks came in the form of dried fruits and healthy treats from the health food store. I need to go back! Jenna needs fruit and veggies as a snack, or healthy options that I have gotten ready for her. I need to be more vigilant with her. We have been trying to detox her from all the white flour and sugar she consumed on Christmas vacation. She did not choose healthy options at the resort and we didn't want to make big scenes in every restaurant. So now we are home and trying to be on the straight and narrow.
Lets see how this one works for a new little bit of healthy. That is what I am going to try and do for the new year. I will be the one chained to the kitchen making healthy snacks for all!
